Happy Saturday ya’ll!!
Yesterday was such a busy day, I wish I had taken more pictures of my craziness. I started with 4 miles on the treadmill just walking and getting work done on my computer.
Then I cleaned up and actually dressed myself in something other than gym clothes or pjs.
What do you think of my new top? I wasn’t too sure, but went with it anyway.
Imagine me, carrying 4 pizzas from the parking garage in 100 degree heat and then up to the third floor of the building, dripping sweat. That was me.
I knew I wouldn’t want pizza for lunch, so I made myself a big salad with a salmon cake and avocado. Yummo
After our meeting I had to go get an eye exam for some of my residency applications. I think it’s pretty interesting they want you to have an eye exam before they agree to interview you!
Kyle and I made dinner and while he grilled a steak, I opted for a plate full of veggies. Broccoli, onions, corn, and a slice of bread with avocado.
So the point of this post: I’ve been reading the book, eat to live
And it’s got me thinking quite a bit. I think I’ll write a longer post about it in a day or two, but basically the take home message is that the best diet for longevity is a plant based diet with limited to no animal products at all.
His nutrition plan is basically 3 meals a day of tons of fruits and veggies with some grains and soy but that’s it. I’m sure it has to be super low in calorie compared with other diet plans that have you eating every 3 hours.
It has me thinking about the difference between say, a body building diet in which you fuel with tons of protein and lots of food and then work your butt off in the gym. This plan prescribes less food and less strenuous exercise. It does sound like maybe it’s easier on the body in terms of stress, inflammation, and all that jazz… Hmmmm… More on this to come.
What do you think?
