Results: 70 Pounds in 8 Months
Chart: Weight & Calories
Chart demonstrates loosing weight without crazy calorie restriction. Nutritionally dense – plant based foods – create satiety. I do not go hungry.
Chart: Calories Consumed
Chart demonstrates adequate protein on a whole food, plant based (WFPB) diet. Carbohydrates sourced from 1-2 pounds of fruit and veggies daily. Healthy heart fat from seeds and nuts (as I have no heart issues).
Chart: Lab Results
Chart demonstrates how eating plant based allowed my numbers to naturally zoom towards normal. The “red” in November 2019 is a normal side effect of water only fasting and returns to normal in a few days. No worries here.
4 Month Check Point
29 pounds gone in 4 months. Key learnings below. More about my story.
Update: August 2022
Whoa, coming through the lockdown was tough on us all. I’m so glad that your reading this. I’m still plant based based. My labs are “normal”. My RA factor bubbles higher than normal. I’m 18 pounds up and have reintroduced Intermittent Fasting while eating normal calories to satiety inside a eating window to move things back in a better direction. The non-eating window helps the body burn fat while still getting the calories needed.
