Day 14

Post your meals for the day in comments section.


Kait said...

Some non-lean meats were on a "Foods to avoid" list that you posted in September (ex. ham, bacon) - Does this only apply if your goal is weight loss or is are they not recommended across the board?

Also-- what's your take on cider as an alcoholic beverage (like strongbow, magners...)

Dawson said...

Kait... These are not recommended across the board unless you can find them without sugar. Most cured meat, like ham and bacon, are loaded with nitrates, sugar, and salt. We are trying to limit our exposure to these chemicals. If you can find these meats without sugar, which they are available but expensive, then they are permissible but only in moderation.

I had to look up cider because I had no clue about it's nutritional info. After checking out numerous websites, alcoholic cider (Strongbow for example) is all sugar and has no nutritional value what-so-ever. Therefore it is not permitted for this challenge.

I would have said limit it to 8-10 ciders a day Kaitlin

Dinner = turkey, few nuts, apple, peppermint tea

I have to say I'm feeling pretty damn good overall and am liking the way my pants are hanging! haha I feel so much less bloated and more energetic, although the WOD tonight was tough; maybe that had something to do with little sleep/early wakeup! :) Overall, am really glad I decided to do this challenge. Thanks Jeff for putting it out there! :)

Late-Snack - Broccoli with cheese, omelet with veggies, spinach and cheese. I am going to miss cheese.

Time to take the final step and cut out dairy. I am curious to see how I feel over the next couple of days. Hopefully my body will learn how to process fats more efficiently.

Meal 1: ham omelette, 1 banana, blueberries, pecans.
Meal 2: cantelope, honeydew melon, watermelon, almonds, black coffee.
Meal 3: homemade turkey soup with carrots, onions, leeks, turnip, parsnips.
Meal 4: spinach & arugula salad with pork tenderloin, pears, blueberries, red onion, dried figs, pumpkin seeds, walnuts.
Meal 5 (Post WOD): protein shake with banana & almond butter.

Jamie....I'm also feeling much less bloated. I had the same reaction when I did the challenge in january. It would be nice to know whether it's the grains or the dairy that's the culprit (I think the grains) since we are cutting out both at the same time!!
