Blending the two diets: Perhaps the final, real answer?

August 23, 2013 § Leave a comment

Time to try a change in calorie distribution. And a change in food type. Just time for some changes.

I want to get 1000 calories per day from green/non-starchy vegetables. I want to continue eating vegan, but since my system is pretty weak right now, cooked vegetables might be a good start, to ease myself into it. Plus, the green vegetables that are highest in calories (brussels and broccs, for instance) are better to eat cooked, anyway.

So. I did some research on the foods that are most readily available to me (and cheapest, because I’m freaking broke):

Frozen Brussel Sprouts
2 bags = 360 (48cal protein)

Frozen Broccs
2 bags = 300 (56cal protein)

2 onions = 90 (8cal protein)

2 bell peppers = 50 (8cal protein)

1 summer squash = 40

1 eggplant = 120

Raw salad with 1 onion, 1 pepper, 1/2 cuke, 1 tomato: 140
add 1/2 avocado with 125 cal (90 from fat) to get 265.

Between the first 3 on the list alone, that’s 750 = two 325 calorie meals.

There- If I make 2 sautee pans of brussels, broccs, and onions every day, and 1 big raw salad, that’s 1000 calories of veggies per day. I’ll sautee the veggies in coconut oil, using 1 tsp per sautee pan, 40 calories each (from fat). Now we’re at 1100 calories. I can then make up the remaining 500-800 in fruits.

Here are the low sugar fruits I’m going to focus on. I also included mango and pineapple, mango because I freaking love them, and pineapple because it’s good against H. Pylori.

1cup blueberries = 85 (5cal protein)
1cup strawberries = 50 (4cal protein)
1 apple = 80 (4 cal from protein)
1 pear = 50 (8 cal protein)

4 apples = 360 (16prot)
1c blue, 2c straw = 180 (18prot)
540

1 mango = 200
1/2 pineapple = 225

Eat times:
9am – apples (that way they’ll fully digest by night time, and they’ll kickstart my morning with a cleanse)
12pm – cooked veg (midday, big lunch)
2pm – berries
3pm – raw veg (big salad, lots of time to walk at work and keep my system going strong)
10pm – cooked veg (easier on my system before bed.)

Sweet. This is the new plan! I have a really good feeling about this, because it combines the principles of the 80/10/10 diet (decreasing fat intake) and the Candida Diet (decreasing sugar).

Oh and regarding percents (assuming I eat 1700 calories per day for the next few days):

[1000 – 112 (vegprotein) -90 (avocadofat)]/1700 = 800/1700 = 47% Vegetable Carbs
[540 – 34 (fruitprotein)]/1700 = 500/1700 = 30% Fruit Carbs
Total Carbohydrate Per Day: 77% 

[112 (vegprotein) + 34 (fruit protein)]/1700 = 150/1700 = 9% Protein
Total Protein Per Day: 9%

[90 (avocadofat) + 80 (coconutoilfat)]/1700 = 170/1700 = 10% Fat
Total Fat Per Day: 10%
