Hey :) How are you? I was wondering how following the starch solution is going? I can not imagine eating so much cooked food after eating so much fruit for so long now :P Have you noticed any difference in how you feel? Or fitness wise? Mentally? I am very curious! I am thinking at the moment about properly following 801010 and cutting out the cooked all together as i seem to often get heartburn if i drink even a sip of water after cooked :S xx
Hi :} I think I felt my absolute best when I was mostly raw and eating veggies for dinner and right now eating mostly cooked carbs. You should definitely try 100% raw I think you would love it.
I did feel kind of backed up when I first switched to starches but after my body kind of transitioned I feel really good and energetic. I actually feel surprisingly light right after my meals. It took me at least 5 days to start to be able to tell when I’m full. Before I would be absolutely stuffed but still feel hungry.
I am a raw veggie addict too so I don’t just eat straight up 100% starches. I usually have about 4 starch meals a day and pair it with steamed veggies or a salad and in between I snack on celery and sweet cherry tomatoes to add vitamins and help digestion. In the past months of being rt4 I kind of neglected veggies so now I’m realizing how much i missed them.
For some reason I prefer to be 100% raw or 100% cooked. I think since fruit empties out of your body so fast, I was usually starving by dinner time and I would overeat and feel really lethargic. Now, because of how dense starched are they digest a bit slower and fill you up easier, I don’t eat as much as I used to.
I guess I just eat average sized meals. Which might sound stressful or restrictive to some people but I actually feel less hung up over food. Like I feel happy and I’m not stressed over my portions anymore. I know this isn’t true for everyone but it sort of makes me feel like I’ve finally been able to come out of binge mode and I feel like all this pressure has been lifted.
This is definitely the healthiest I’ve felt, mentality wise, in a long while. Not to be all dramatic lol but I feel like I’ve found something I can really stick with and feel completely comfortable. I feel more energetic and I’ve been into moving around a lot more
Yesterday was green juice and yams and raw veggies
Today is sprouted bread, vegan cheese and soy milk
I’m gonna be more “80/20” as they say, but i don’t actually care about the percentages. Soooo tired of percentages to be honest. I have good sense, I’ll use that lol
Do you have a whole foods grocery list? I really wanna be able to make all these healthy meals but I don't know exactly what to buy.
Whatever you want really! I need to restock a bunch of stuff so maybe I’ll write a post of what I buy but currently my staples are:
Potatoes, rice, yams (main starches) + lentils, black beans, chickpeas
We also have in the house: sprouted bread/ bagels, rice pasta and glass noodles
romaine, spring mix, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, zucchini, celery, ginger, carrots
some stuff in the freezer: peas, corn, black eyed peas, some pretty whole food oriented veggie burgers
then some side stuff/ sauce:
teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, sriracha, wasabi, tomato sauce, nutritional yeast, soy milk or almond milk
Excluding spices, I have a lot because of curry and chili and stuff. Also I’m excluding all the vegan goodies my mom likes to buy (daiya cheese, vegan cookies, vegan pizza, chikn nuggets).
Also, since I have all these allergic reactions I’m excluding fruit but obviously fruit would be ideal and u already know how to buy that so ya ;}
Idk if this answered your question I feel like this was a rly boring dumb answer lol
I forgot AVOCADOOOOS
yes. the pot in which you boiled them becomes dirty, must clean pot. then you use a tray and bake potatoes, must clean tray. also you have to cut potatoes with cutting board and knife, must clean those as well.
oooooooooh lol i feel ya
thats a lot of work for potatoes oh my god i'm too lazy to do that :(
is it??? it’s like no work and always so easy when I do it I just boil them to make them soft and then broil them for lik 5 mins but ok lol
