And now we come to the diet details. Very strict, mostly lean proteins and vegetables. Lots of water, and never eat a fat with a carb that’s not vegetables. Throw in some good fats and carbs, and you have it. Our trainer, Boyd, calls it his Caveman Diet. You can find the full diet here: Caveman Program
Oh, and one more thing, you have to eat 5 to 6 times a day. That part is taking a little bit of getting used to. One good thing is you don’t really get very hungry eating that often, so it’s been pretty easy to stick to, much easier than I thought it would be. What is a bit difficult, for me anyway, is getting 4 meals ready to take with me to work every day. I guess I just have to get a routine down and maybe pre-cook some food on the weekend.
The meals we eat are pretty simple so far. Haven’t had time to experiment much since we are at the gym 3 times a week now! There are a few good recipes on Boyd’s blog that we plan to try very soon.
Feng Shui can enhance any diet. Using colors, smell, decorative items and even dishes, you can make your kitchen peaceful and relaxing. Recently I purchased some new square black dinnerware. Blue or black dishes will slow down your eating because they are yin, relaxing colors. Yang colors are red, orange, yellow, which stimulate the appetite. The square plate shape represents satisfaction, which may help you to eat less. Also, eating on smaller plates can help some people. The dishes I purchased are the first set in the list below. We’ve had them a couple of weeks now, and my husband just remarked last night how much slower I am eating now. I actually didn’t realize that it was the plates until I was writing this post! I have been a fast eater all my life until now, and I know the dishes helped, there’s no other explanation, LOL.
Here are a few good square plate choices from Amazon.com :
