Grilled Cheese Diet - Day 6-8

It's Saturday night, college football night and I have had a great day. I have walked twice, lifted weights today, for the 4th time in 8 days. I have eaten vegetarian 90% of the time. The only time I did not in the last 9 days has been unintentional. But, I did not stop my self either. I feel great, incredible actually. Why, I feel energetic, emotionally up and enthusiastic. Though I can say, that was not my feeling all week.

So what would I say is the reason for my healthy and energetic feeling? Well I have to say my Grilled Cheese diet. Have I really eaten any grilled cheese in all 8 days? Well yes, last saturday, I call them my Mexican grilled cheese, Quessadilla's. So what is "The Grilled Cheese diet" ? Its a vegetarian diet for the every day folks, hindu style meaning, no meat, no fish, but with dairly. And it's American style, because if you break the diet it's no big deal, just try to eat vegetarian 90% of the time.

For example, my wife went to a really nice restaurant the other day, and she brought her left over steak and fries back. The steak looked really good, so I had a bite. Only a bite, but I had all the fries. So I say taste the meat, if you love it. But try to eat mostly vegetarian or the diet won't work for you. You see in 2005 I lost about 50lbs on this vegetarian diet, and only to gain it back in late 2007 when I started to eat meat in most of meals. I also started to feel more tired and less energetic too.

It all started with a big meat based easter dinner. So if you choose to eat the 10% meat, which I don't recommend, you need to be careful. Don't get off the diet, if you have a weight problem, you need to cut fat, and most meat based diets are very high in saturated fats. Do try to replace the cravings with cheeses, nuts, ice cream. Did I just say ice cream, yes I did. Also, if you feel like it, eat potato chips too.

Your cravings will dramatically drop with a vegetarian diet. That is probably the number one reason you will eat less and your weight loss will be so fast. This is why really try not to eat meat at each meal. And, eat anything else you want, especially cheeses and Grilled Cheese sandwiches.

Eat Vegetarian be Green, Days 3 - 4 - 5

So I did not Blog on the topics of my blog on Sunday and Monday night, don't really have a good escuse. Just that things happen, so I will blog about what I ate those two days. And, how I removed the pepporni of my Pizza tonight, though mostly unsuccessfuly. I also decided that I wanted to change the name of the blog series to eat vegetarian. Didn't know if I would remove fresh or not, but I think that is where I am going with it. I just changed the title, as I like the sound of it.

So here is my eats from what I remember, the key is to be conscious of eating what you want, not because of what you have to. And really go by your feelings, not descipline. Which may sound of the opposite of what you hear, and that is my true intentions.


Indian Buffet for lunch
Macaroni and Cheese for dinner
Ice Cream dessert

Half/Banana Bread
Lunch: Subway Footlong Veggie
Dinner: Thai food
2 beers
Kee Mao Noodle Tofu (half portion)
Red Curry - friend Tofu(half portion)
** wow that is a lot

1/2 piece of whole wheat bread
2 table spoons of Scrambled Eggs
Vegetarian Indian Buffet
Lentils, rice, samos..umph so good
1 cup of Potato Chips
6 small slices of frozen Pizza (with half peporinis remoced, will not try this again)
No Ice Cream tonight

Lessons: eat what you want, you will eat less, as I am. Also, eating vegetarian allows us to eat a lot more food for the same calories. Eating vegetarian food usually has more fiber which makes us feel full.
