Sound pretty healthy! Pretty much all organic. But no dairy or meat?

Thats pretty much what I eat (a few too many bananas though) but I also eat meat.

Good luck! I bet you'll be feeling great with all the fruit and veg!

thanks ella :-)

I actually don't eat that much meat anyway, usually just a bit of chicken and fish here and there. I think milk will be the hard thing to give up because I drink so much tea (at home) and lattes (at uni and the shops). I'll also have to think of a replacement for my beloved salmon sushi packs =(

Do you think the juices at boost juice (not smoothies, the juice juices LOL) would be an ok substitute for freshly squeezed? Does anyone know if they add anything to them?

Thanks! But im barely in my 50's!

What you could have as an alternative to sushi is rolled rice with cucumber and carrot in the middle? Ive seen sushi without the seaweed before...

Can you have soy milk? If not, you could always decrease the amount of milk you have every day until you dont need any anymore? Tea tastes like ass without milk, but I suppose you could get used to it.

I'm just a little concerned about the "meat is bad cause it has proteins" line. Unfortunately you need protein (especially if you are exercising so you can build muscle, which is made of protein to my knowledge) so that line doesn't cut it, and protein comes in a number of sources, not just meat (eg, legumes, like beans and lentils). As a woman, you will also need iron, and if you're not getting it from meat, you need to get it from somewhere (and yes, there are vege sources, such as spinach - go popeye - and red kidney beans. But you need to know to combine them with vitamine C to aid it's absorbtion)

How do I know this? I grew up in a vegetarian household including 3 menstruating women and my mum runs a wholefood shop. My sis is still vegetarian and I prefer to be usually. Mum and dad are off and on.

My point is that there is a lot to eating healthily and you have to acknowledge that humans are omnivores and ergo designed to absorb some nutrients from meat that are good for you (although meat products would have been far less important in our diet previously). Most of us rely on these animal sources the majoriyy of the time and you need to find alternates if you eliminate meat from your diet.

Tegan is right on the money there.. Protein is essential for muscle development, and that diet basically cuts out almost all protein you can have (meat, dairy, seafood etc).
The diet mentions that burning proteins is a "body polluting process", but why only proteins? Proteins, carbs, fats are all broken down in the same WAY, by your digestive system.
And as for the "fattening cholesterol", I'm sure lean cuts of meat aren't too bad there.

I dunno, give it a go if you want but I hate elimination diets! I did a Candida diet not long ago for my health, not to lose weight, and it was ridiculous to stick to!

The thing with these diets is that they may work in the short term to help you lose weight, but what happens when you return to your regular eating habits? I tried a restrictive liver cleansing diet and lost 6 kilos in 8 weeks but it all came back on as soon as I finished the 8 weeks and went back to my regular eating habits :?
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

is it really that hardcore of a diet? :oops:
i was just thinking i'd drink freshly squeezed juice instead of lattes at uni, find some type of salad to replace my salmon sushi packs, breakfast fruit and green tea as usual, and then dinner some type of salad and maybe a small amount of rice or pasta? Snacks being some nuts and dried fruit?

Also don't forget madz that you need lots of calcium for your bones - lots of dairy/soy etc because you only keep laying down bone mass until your early 20s then it stops and that's what you have to last you the rest of your life.

Some of the changes sound good, but I worry about any diet that says you can't have this or that, because it means you're gonna end up lacking in some nutrient.

Just my two cents anyway!! Whatever you decide is the best approach for you, do it, but just keep your health in mind first!!

Hugs, Molli.

Ok well I went to the supermarket to get some supplies for the next few days:

- Big packet of sunflower seeds
- Big packet of sultanas (both from the "natural food aisle")
- A couple of cartons of Lite SoGood soy milk
- A couple of punnets of strawberries
- Lots of celery
- 2 varieties of baby tomatoes

I already have lots of apples, bananas, mandarines, etc

I couldn't find any blueberries, is that strange?

Nah I can never find blueberries or raspberries this time of year.

You can get frozen ones though? Not as yummy

Mads your proposed changes sound good. The diet they propose is kinda hardcore if you take it verbatim, like staying away from all proteins. BUT increasing fruit and veg in your diet is a good thing. Just be sure that if you do go completely meat free that you substitute other things for your iron and protein etc.

And for those who may think a vegetarian diet is impossible to be healthy with, I can assure you it's not, my sis has been vege since a small tot (she never liked meat) and the only time she became unhealthy or anemic is when she had giardia (parasite) as a tot and when she moved to uni away from mum's cooking!! . :lol:

I would still be vege if it wasn't for the bloke who HAS to have meat at least once per week.
