Day Two of the New Plan
Did I do better than yesterday?I didn't do too badly today. I gulped down a couple of tablespoons of
molasses before leaving for work. I skipped the nuts today, sticking to
dried fruit for breakfast: a mix of prunes, figs, apples, nectarines,
and apricots. For lunch I had pretty much the same foods as yesterday,
except I added 2 ounces of fish. Dinner was a repeat of lunch, but with
only 1 oz. of fish, and with the third tablespoon of molasses thrown
in. In the evening I added two tablespoons of dulse flakes to a snack
of taboule to get more minerals and B 12 in.

By the way, I was ill much of the day due to eating those prunes. I
know they are supposed to help "clean you out" due to their high fiber
content, but I was in agony after eating only three of them. I guess
that along with the fiber I got from the other fruit, those prunes sent
me over the top. I didn't think I was going to make it through my class
today because of all the pain. I was much better by dinnertime, but I'm
still not back to normal.
In some ways today was a nutritional improvement over yesterday. In
other ways, not so good. I had fewer calories and fat due to avoiding
the nuts. But I was surprised to have achieved 110 grams of protein
(too much!). I also had too much sodium again. Lastly, most of the
nutrients I didn't get enough of yesterday I also didn't get enough of
How to improve? Immediate ideas: I would try removing the cheese to
lower the protein, sodium and fat; adding kombucha to increase the B
vitamins; increasing the dulse flakes to increase my B12 even more;
adding greens for the folate, and finding better food sources for zinc,
folate, D and E that aren't high in fat and protein.
