One month without any animal products or processed foods (bread, pasta, etc…). I still feel good. I am eating a ton (500g-600g daily) of lentils for protein.
At first I gained a few pounds, but I have settled down to 148LBS while eating 2500-2750 calories per day. The hard part for me is knowing what nutrients are being absorbed properly, and what I need to supplement. For now I am just taking a daily Vitamin D… but that is for the winter, not the diet.
Soy milk fortified with B12 is the only processed type food I consume. I have to figure out my calcium and my B12. I might eat liver once a week, or clam meat, for B12. I get calcium form some greens, sesame seeds and chia seeds… but again… I don’t know if it being absorbed properly. I might start a supplement of calcium (50% DV).
I increased my weights and added a deadlift today: I did 180LBS, 8 reps-2 sets. I want to warm up to heavier weights slowly.
I added 30LBS to my stair climbing, 1800 steps/week (I tell myself it is the CN Tower that I climb).
