A Day's Worth Of Eating

5 posts in this topic

I apologize if this topic has been discussed before..I'm curious about individual responses, not so much overall advice, e.g. what do you eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner? What do you snack on? I'm finding it hard to put it all together, especially for someone like myself that does NOT like to cook a lot. Example: I'll have a green smoothie at breakfast, a handful of sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds in the

late morning, but by noon I'm starving and I'm lost. I'm avoiding gluten, sugar, and soy ( I've been eating a regional goat yogurt

that doesn't seem to bother me so I can't say I'm dairy-free).

Breakfast (6am): chicken or grass-fed beef, raw pastured eggs, veggies & raw coconut butter

Lunch (4pm): chicken or grass-fed beef, raw pastured eggs, veggies, a bit of fruit & raw coconut butter

Dinner (9pm): chicken or grass-fed beef & veggies

Cooking meat & veg is simple. Get a pressure cooker, throw everything in, press start. Eat in 1 hour.

If your diet is heavy on meat and fat, you won't (shouldn't) get hungry throughout the day. If it's high in carbs, you'll definitely feel it.

It has been done dozens of times. You can find such threads, and recipes in the Food and Recipe thread.

Breakfast seems to be by far the biggest issue for people who can't seem to imagine what to have when you don't have cereal and toast. Next is lunch if you don't have a sandwich.

I have eggs, sweet potatoes or a buckwheat cereal with ginger and cinnamon, fruit and sunflower seeds. I soak and sprout the buckwheat then cook about 1-2 times per week, then usually eat it cold throughout the week. Sometimes coconut or sweet potato pancakes for which I also make a big batch and eat for several days.

Lunch is just like what you'd have for dinner. In fact, most days, its my biggest meal and dinner is something with minimal calories to start a daily intermittent fast like a vegetable soup or a green smoothie.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

Hiya, I'm sort of Paleo/Clean eating, and my breakfast today for example was

Two sunny side up eggs (runny, YUM :)), a cut up avocado and a sprinkling of goats cheese (I do no dairy, but my Dad was visitng and bought some goats cheese, I hate wasting food), a cut up tomato.

Some days I's add a rice waffle. (not very paleo, but clean:))

I'm never hungry in the morning and have gone for years with my FIRST FOOD OF THE DAY around 4pm-8pm - crazy, I know. So I force myself to have some breakfast and I find that eggs and veggies is actually a pleasant one :) Plus, you can pair it with a green smoothie, no problem.

Hope this helps.

Just a quick note, because you asked as well: for a snack/lunch I usually (usually means when I have classes at the uni) have an apple and a handful of pecans or soaked almonds, and for dinner I LOVE a huge salad (not dieting, I'm a curvy girl and am not loosing weight, but love a great salad) - salads have a nice, low glycemic index,which is good for fighting acne and they're super filling without being carb-loaded like pasta or bread. A typical salad: mixed greens/quarter of iceberg lettuce, one chicken boob (grilled or panfried with no oil), a glug of olive/red palm oil, herbs (fresh basil/mint). A really good addition to keep you full are BEANS! And beans (like red kidney or edamame + mint = heaven.)

So. Hope this helps.

I'm not one for being hungry or eating lettuce with no nothing on it, but like to keep it clean and as healthy as my cravings allow:)

PS If you don't tend to cook, beware of store bought salad dressings, loads of hidden sugar!
