View Full Version : My veggie/fruit feast

Today I had a banana and orange for breakfast. Brussell sprouts, corn and blueberries for lunch. 2 banana's and 2 cups of watermelon throughout the afternoon for snacks. Orange, apple, edamame and 4 cups of salad for dinner. I am stuffed!!!!

Then tonight I went shopping... so on the menu tomorrow is peaches, starfruit, dragonfruit, mango, strawberries, spinach, kale, peppers and carrots.


and by the way? This "feast" is accomplishing EXACTLY what I hoped it would... guess who's been pooping ALL FREAKING DAY. Yep. That would be me. YAYYYY!!!!!!

you're basically describing a typical day for me, though I throw in a bit of protein. It's veggies, veggies, veggies, and some fruit - all day long - from first thing in the morning till into the evening.

And well, ummm, yeah - I have never, ever not even one day since I started my "journey" had any bathroom *issues*.

Oh and don't forget all the wonderful things you can do with cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage - yummy, healthy, filling and very *moving*.

Glad to hear things are going in the right - direction.

Whoot! The scale will move next. :D

Interesting. I honestly thought you were grasping at straws. I did not know that could work.

I'll be curious to see what this does to your progress. ;) I'm at the I'll-try-anything phase.

Wow, awesome! :D I'm definitely trying to eat more like this. Which should be a given, right, being vegetarian? But sadly I'm one of those "have to have my grain fix" vegetarians. :lol: I'm also not a big salad lover... Well, you know what they say: Progress, not perfection. :moo:

:woohoo: I'm glad to see you got things fixed, and in such a yummy way too, and your food for today sounds even yummier - I love love love star fruit and dragon fruit. Dangit woman! I might have to go to the store now.

Those of us that live "down stream" to the "Poop Queen" raise their hand! I think we might want to get nervous!

:D Love ya! So glad you are happy!!!

I have IBS, so a veggie/fruit feast causes severe diarrhea, far too much of the intended reaction. Getting things moving is great, severe abdominal pain and having to stay within 20 feet of the bathroom all day, not so much.

It's great for the weight loss, but it's a rather uncomfortable way to go about it.

I still do it to myself every summer though. Not so much deliberately, it's just that the local farmers' markets have such yummy produce that I overbuy and overeat. I try to be careful, and try to find the sweet spot of maximum produce consumption without severe symptoms, but I often miscalculate.

Ranier cherry season is my one exception. I know I'm going to make myself sick, but the season is so short, and the cherries so wonderful that for two to three weeks, I go on the cherry and sweetcorn diet. Tastebuds are very happy, scale is very happy too. Digestive system, not so happy.

I've never heard of dragonfruit. Glad your plan is working.
