Re: The anti-vegan diet

bean salads are a favorite of mine, because it has oil and vinegar usually, and its healthy too. This one is my favorite recipe I learned from watching Jacques Pepin

Butter Bean Canapes

Mix together in a bowl 1 can (15.5 ounces) drained butter beans (large white beans), 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 3 tablespoons chopped onion, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or chives, 1 teaspoon chopped garlic, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cut twelve 1/3-inch-thick slices from a baguette. Mound the bean mixture on the bread slices. Serve.

* I vary this recipe sometimes by using both butter beans (baby lima beans) and cannellini beans.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

3 bean salad - I usually go classic route of green beans, chickpeas and some kind of navy or kidney bean. Then olive oil, apple cider vinegar, a tiny bit of turbinado, garlic, a touch of Dijon, salt and pepper. Dice celery if you want a bit of texture.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

I hate vinegar.

I have not worked out in the last 4-5 days due to soreness and other stuff. But I do find I feel better when I do exercise. That sunday softball really kicked my ass. On the plus side I signed up for a CCP class today. I will be a "legal" gun toting citizen soon.

*sigh* I don't get you vinegar haters. Boardwalk fries w/out malt vinegar? Why even bother? Well, any acid helps, so not just vinegar (that one is just the best!) but you could add some fresh squeezed lemon, lime, etc

Re: The anti-vegan diet

Mini update. I have decided not to do any exercise until after I weigh myself on Monday. I have not worked out all week so I want to see if it has any affect on my weight loss results. I have read other people say that exercise is not needed to lose weight on this diet.

I think that is more a person to person variation, but I will try it for a week. I will start again after Monday as it does make me feel better. Also I would like to keep my muscle mass. You never know when an impromptu gun show can break out.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

42 days in and.............. 229

So I gained back one pound without exercise.

This is not a surprise. I have never been able to lose weight with changing my diet alone. It could be due to the fatty liver. I will get back to my exercise regimen tomorrow and give it another week.

Sunday was by far the toughest day though. It was my nephews 21st birthday party and I couldn't eat anything there. I had two bottles of water. Also no booze. I actually had cravings. Also the social aspect of not eating with others was a weird aspect I had not considered. I felt more pressure to eat something in a social environment than from hunger/cravings.

Also my appetite has been stronger this week. It might be due to the jalapenos I have been eating.

Also I have been having my bone broth, but the cramping is still there. This is becoming bothersome.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

You might want to switch to the DASH diet. You will feel better, I think.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

I weighed myself again in the morning and was 226. Again I just chalk it up to daily fluctuations in my weight. I worked out today and it felt good. Did 30 minutes on the treadmill and everything felt great. Even my str was good, no fatigue. However it might be from the week I took off. I do find my workouts easier when coming off a break. We will see if that lasts or is just temporary.

Re: The anti-vegan diet

I'm glad you're feeling better. You are just doing this diet "short term" right? I don't think it's good to stay on a high fat , protein diet for a long time. The best way of eating that I've ever tried is called The Mediterranean Diet, which I still try to keep with. Maybe you could switch to that after you're at your goal weight.

Seriously my goal weight is around 180. I don't even know if that is possible with my frame and muscle mass. But as long as I don't lose muscle and only lose fat I will continue. After 60 days I do plan on introducing some more vegetables, other than jalapenos, back into my diet. I will try low carb ones. I also do eat lots of fish. A staple of the Med diet.

Also after 90 days I do want to get a enzyme test for my liver. To see if I still have a elevated levels from the fatty liver. It would be nice to see how that is going. And I think it is much cheaper than an ultrasound.

But sitting here typing this it is easy too see I still have way too much belly fat. I have gone from a full sized spare tire to a donut, so there is still work to do.
