A New Diet Plan?
Diet plans, how many have I tried?
Okay folks, here it is , my new attempt at a new diet plan.
This is a basic guide of what I will be trying to do moving forward, specifically eat real food, get real strong, go gradual.
I will admit I have been all over the map with diets, from weight watchers to macrobiotics, to vegan, to vegetarian, to rice only, to fruits only, to juicing and back.
So, I am not saying that you have to trust I will be successful here, but no reason not to try a new diet plan.
I do not want to give up!
Today, Chef Yassin made me the hashi mashi.
As you might have read, I made up the word Hashi Mashi , and it meant to me two things, initially it meant a mish mosh, a mix, a vegetable omelette with hummus and avocado on the side.
Later on, it would come to mean to go from here, to there, from one state, to another, to cross the bridge from the state of being fat, to being fit.
Diet Plan For Hashi Mashi Day One
After Chef Yassin made me the Hashi Mashi, he also said “Hashi, you are the best”, and I was good cause I did not have any of the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies!
Chefs Zaza, Ahmed and Yassin all know how every day I would go in to get chocolate chip cookies, sometimes the oatmeal raisin, but more frequently the chocolate chip.
I would start with one in the morning, mmm that sugar hit made me feel high as a kite.
And then I would come back for a couple of more at lunch, and then another 5 or 6 at night.
I could not have them fast enough, like I was craving crack cocaine, not that I know how that feels, I just know that I needed those cookies.
Can this diet plan save me from these endless cookie cravings?
We will see.
The First Day Of Test Driving This New Diet Plan
So today is day one of Hashi Mashi, June 21, 2012.
So that means to stay focused on having healthy foods, real foods, no processed foods, even bread, no pasta, no rice, no soba noodles which I love, no snicker bars, no ben & jerry with heath bar crunch ice cream.
No soda, no no no.
Not even a Goldenberger peanut chew and no m&m's.
For me, this is very heavy stuff, a very intense diet plan, can I survive it?
Can I survive without it?
These treats are my main source of pleasure sorry to say, but it is time to find some new sources outside of those shiny colorful wraps which contain concocted sugar and fat which I feel I must have all the time.
These treats make me really happy, for five or ten minutes, but I have to wear the after effects.
In any case, this is the first step of the diet plan which is to eat real food, as long as it is real!
Here Is The Basic Hashi Mashi New Diet Plan For Day One
Hashi Mashi ~ vegetable egg omelete with hummus and avocado
Apple and Almonds for snack
Sauteed vegetables with soy dogs? or white chicken
berries and walnuts for snack
Dinner..sweet potato with salmon or black beans…
So this seems like a basic diet plan that I think can work for me.
What do you think?
Could it work for you?
Do you think you can get through the day without bread, pasta, rice, snickers, chips?
My guess is that if you are overweight like myself, you cannot, and if you have never had weight issues, it probably does not matter much to you what kind of old or new diet plan you eat and when.
For exercise, workout:
going to go swim, promise!
If i cannot find these goggles , I am still going!
Will have to buy some new ones.
Be grateful for what I have.
For creating a good habit of which I have a pretty terrible one, nail biting that is as embarrassing as it is to admit:
Keep my hands calm, use a lot of Calaphor or other hand cream like Aquaphor
For emotional health and a good attitude, a new diet plan for my mind.
Stay grateful, smile…
(you know my Dad, may he rest in Peace, used to call me Smiley, yeh, thats right, because I did not smile enough!)
Get melatonin and try that, I have not gone to sleep before 5am the last week and it is making me feel really strange
Keep cleaning out everything in my home that i do not use.
For strength training, I am still trying to figure that out.
In the meantime, I can barely do pushups not even one, so I have to lose some weight probably before I can do much.
