I’m more of an “observer” than full fledged member. I try to limit the bad stuff. I’m the guy w the 2 poached eggs and wheat toast.

Count me in as another person interested in your progress.

Now, I will say that my wife and I are complete opposites as we're ketogenic and have been for over eight years now. Meat and cheese being staples of my diet, with non-starchy vegetables too, of course. 

Still, finding what you can stick to and make you feel good is important. There's not a one-size-fits-all approach to dieting, as much as many people will want you to believe.

I think that’s the big thing. Since the military just hasn’t been the same. The very extreme regimented meals we had got my body a certain way and it’s just not the same anymore. Wanted to try something and do a full reset for lack of a better description I guess

Congrats on making the move.  My family did this over a year ago and haven’t looked back.  I am mostly vegan and vegetarian, but will eat fish every now and then.  It was shockingly easy to make the transition.  Weight dropped and never felt better.

Same here.  I got used to a very specific way of eating while in the Marines and it kept me in really good health.  But since my return to 'normal' life, it just hasn't been the same.  Too much freedom I suppose.

Had a minor surgery today so I am home for lunch. Will be prepping salad stuff for lunches during the week.

today we have:

kale, spinach, red leaf, purple cabbage and romaine for some crunch. Yellow/red peppers, cucumber, carrots, walnuts and sunflower seeds. Dressing is a olive oil and raspberry vinaigrette with a little garlic....because garlic is the best.

grilled some sweet potato’s to throw on the side.

That salads not for me, but coincidently heard a dietician from the Mayo Clinic mentioning pumpkin as a better alternative to sweet potatoes. More nutrients at a third of the calories.

Stuffed green peppers. Brown rice, mushrooms and onion. Added a dab of hot sauce. Pan fried spinach on the side.

was very good. smaller portions today than I would ever have. I fell fairly full and satisfied. Only 1 day obviously but nothing to report that’s bad yet.

Just updated the initial post to have the link to my daily tracking. It is also in my signature

Will be tracking Weight, Waste and SS daily but a weekly overall feel. I know you aren't really supposed to track weight daily but I do want to see the fluctuations day to day.

Anything else folks want to see let me know!

Follow the Progress here!

So I am sure some of you have seen my discussion in the “random thread” but wanted to start a longer discussion as I am sure some folks are interested in this.

Guess I will start with me. I am not a small guy at 5’11” 203 lbs. I can eat let’s put it that way....and enjoy food of all types. I have tried pretty much anything and everything.

Recently looking into just cleaner eating my wife and I decided to go down this road and fully commit. She will be prepping a majority of the meals as I am more of a griller. The reason we decided to do this is we have been eating out a lot more recently on top of not getting as much exercise as we normally would we have just felt ehhhh. On top of that there is a lot of research and proof that several diseases can be prevented and if not reversed by a clean plant based diet.

I will be logging daily meals we eat, not all but ones I think are pretty good and appealing to eat. I will also be tracking my weight loss if any weekly. With that I want to make sure A) I feel better but B) see if there is any improvement in my golf game as well specifically making sure my SS stays up

With weight loss I’ll be tracking to make sure my swing speed doesn’t dip. Last time out my SS dropped pretty drastically and I think was because I was tired after an indoor simulator day. I want to see if I can keep my swing speed up and my overall energy up. This will be pretty subjective energy wise so I will use a 1-10 scale most likely.

For the first month I’ll be pretty dedicated to making sure I’m only eating clean. I will most likely start incorporating the occasional steak down the road but for now it will be strictly clean.

if anyone is interested in seeing something specific let me know will be glad to Incorporate.

I am definitely a protein type person, and fairly knowledgeable about food. I suggest that you use as many whole grains (antient grains like farro, spelt, Kumat, quinoa etc) as you can as well as many colors and textures in the vegetables you use. Include lots of nuts and seeds (for protein). As you can see below I like to cook!!!

Tonight we had acorn stuffed squash and green beans. The acorn squash is fantastic right now and is one of my favorite squashes. Needed nothing on it but olive oil

Mmm I do love acorn squash.

What did you use for the stuffing? I usually *stuff* mine with butter and brown sugar. [emoji23][emoji1787]

Today is 1 week in the books. Did a little more in depth review on the tracking sheet (in my signature and 1st post). Overall was good definitely had cravings but nothing worse then when i stopped dipping. 
intiial weight drop was surprising wasn’t expecting a very big initial drop. Maintained after than and have not been under 200 in several years. Was never at any point “starving” and I use that term loosely, also my overall energy seemed to have an increase.
I also found pains and swelling to go down as well (knees and hands).

going to keep on keeping on and hopefully see some more losses and maybe a waste shrink we shall see. 

oh and I had a surgery last Thursday so the NA for swing speed is because I won’t be swinging probably until next week some time.

Tonight had some chickpea pasta with vegan meatballs, broccoli and marinara. Was actually pretty damn good

Might need to consider looking at this more in depth.  I feel like a bag of smashed potato chips lately.  Just dead tired all the time, falling asleep watching TV at like 9... not normal.  I do dislike this time change junk though.  Might have to move to Australia in the winter....
