Nutritarian Update

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

It's a good thing I can stick to my nutritarian diet-style better than my daily blogging! It's been a couple of months since I checked in and I'm down 30 pounds! I'm currently eating nutritarian about 85% of the time. When we grocery shop we stick to the diet but when we go out or are visiting friends and family we have our "cheats." I find that keeping our household healthy is probably the most important factor for us sticking to it. We don't buy junk food so that when we do feel like we want something off the diet it's not as easily accessible. The second most important thing to me is tracking my nutrition and fitness here on SparkPeople. If we eat out I always research, choose, and enter my meal before we go. I also like to be able to plan out our day to try to get the recommended amounts of fruits, veggies, and beans

I found that my caloric intake naturally averages between 1100 and 1300 per day while eating nutritarian. Keep in mind that this is not portion control at all, this is eating until satisfied. Food tastes better now, and I look forward to many nutritarian dishes. I will say that we've come away from the no snacking in between meals rule, but I'd like to get back on track as far as that goes.

We invested in a Quick Pot pressure cooker which made nutritarian life so much easier. Previously, I had to remember to rinse and soak beans before going to bed so I had to know what I was making the next day. Then I had to cook most beans for about an hour and a half before using them to prepare dishes. Now with the pressure cooker, I simply rinse the beans, throw them in the pot with water or broth along with other ingredients and pressure cook for 30 minutes. This is a huge time saver, and I'd highly recommend this. Our Quick Pot also has other functions including doubling as a slow cooker.

    Never heard of being a nutritarian, but at least it's working and sounds healthy!

    Thank you. I was thinking of trying to go vegan but i think i will go nutritarian instead. I will give it a try. I will need a couple of weeks to research it and prepare.
