I have nearly finished reading ‘The 801010 Diet’ cover to cover. I told myself to try the diet strictly for a week when I finished reading it so I am reading the last couple of chapters very slowly. It is quite a tough diet as it’s basically all raw fruits and veggies. However, I want to try it to see if it makes me feel as amazing as it claims.
The idea of the diet is to eat raw fruit for 2 meals and fruit plus green leafy veg for supper – all raw. When I get home after a long day in the dark, I want something cooked. I can happily eat sweet juicy fruit all day but it’s the evening I struggle with. Mind you, I did well today as the numbers at the end will show.
I munched an apple on the train and at work feasted on a huge bowl full of pineapple,a kiwi, a passionfruit and 2 bananas. I also snacked on 2 or 3 more apples through the morning. At lunch time I walked a longer then necessary route (for the exercise) to Wholefoods Market to buy some fruit. I bought some lovely fruits for at home and for lunch I had 500g of organic red grapes and 500 g of 2 types of melon. My colleagues are wondering if I am turning my desk in to a fruit stall! I felt really good all day. I was alert, not tired and got lots done. This was even more impressive as I had been woken up at 4:54 by whatever rodent (rat or squirrel most likely) that has taken up residence in the wall space or roof space immediately next to my bed !!!! It has been waking me up for weeks and I ah getting very fed up. But anyhow, on with the food ……
Supper was a pile of veggies. Half a bag of spinach, a small head of cauliflower, 2 large chestnut mushrooms, one brown onion and lots of brussel sprouts. I bought a new pan today as I am going to try to massively reduce my fat consumption. Instead of stir frying the veggies in coconut oil and adding soy sauce like I usually would, I “fried” them in water. And added nothing! It did taste a bit bland but I wanted to try and have no added salt all day so I added some Sriracha, hot chilli sauce. This would win no gourmet awards but it was ok. Just.
The numbers however are great.
Total calories = 1,368

I do hope those scales show a good result on Friday.
