A New Diet Plan – Introduction
A New Diet Plan?
Diet plans, how many have you tried?
Okay folks, here it is, my new attempt at a new diet plan.
This is a basic guide of what you can do moving forward, specifically:
- eat real food,
- get real strong,
- go gradual.
Even if you have been all over the map with diets, from:
- weight watchers to
- macrobiotics, to
- vegan, to
- vegetarian, to
- rice only, to
- fruits only, to
- no bread, to
- carb cycling, to
- paleo, to
- slow carbs, to
- juicing and back.
You can trust that you will be successful here, plus there is no reason not to try a new diet plan.
Never give up!
Today, Chef Yassin made me the Hashi Mashi breakfast as I imagined yesterday evening in the Deli.
As you might have read, I made up the word Hashi Mashi, and it meant to me two things, initially, it meant chaos, which is what I felt at that time, from endless obesity and depression.
Also, a mish-mosh, a mix, and the good morning breakfast I concocted to replace my standard bagels, eggs, cheese and Orange juice – a vegetable omelet with hummus and avocado on the side.
But ultimately Hashi Mashi meant – Change Your Body, Change Your Life.
Meaning, if you change your body, you can change your life!
The Hashi Mashi Plan 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 The Hashi Mashi 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 Plan For Day One
Good Morning Hashi Mashi Breakfast ~ vegetable egg omelet with hummus and avocado
Apple and Almonds for a snack
Sauteed vegetables with soy dogs or white chicken
berries and walnuts for a 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 and smile.
You know my Dad, may he rest in peace, used to call me Smiley, yeh, that’s right, because I did not smile enough!
Get melatonin and try that, I have not gone to sleep before 5 am the last week and it is making me feel really strange.
Insomnia is a terrible side effect of antidepressants like Zoloft.
So, if you can wean off of Zoloft, don’t hesitate!
For better organization:
Keep cleaning out everything in my home that I do not use.
(Update 2023: I wrote the below back in 2012 before I knew about the amazing benefits of deadlifts, squats, bench presses, and calisthenics like army PRT exercises, pullups, or pushups.)
For strength training, I am still trying to figure that out.
In the meantime, I can barely do even one pushup, so I have to lose some weight probably before I can do much.
