Hi @Vasni! No wonder you’re tired! I’ve spent what seems like a full-time job researching nutrition. I know there’s a whole discussion on another page, so I don’t want to go into too much here, but I’ve used PCRM as a resource. They have a whole kickstart meal plan for free here. One of the big things I’ve learned from them, when you make a “salad” is to add a whole grain like wheat berries or quinoa and a legume like lentils or beans. This really fills you up, and the protein! Wow!
I’ve also signed up to receive Forks Over Knives meal plans and have also used their free recipes here. I’ve watched the Forks Over Knives documentary on Netflix, which also led me to a slew of others, but then I had to research those sources to be sure I wasn’t being led astray.
So, I read, The China Study: Revised and Expanded Edition: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-Term HealthDec 27, 2016
by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II.
I read, The Cheese Trap: How Breaking a Surprising Addiction Will Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy, and Get HealthyFeb 28, 2017
by Neal D Barnard and Marilu Henner.
I read, The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good! Kindle Edition
by John McDougall (Author), Mary McDougall (Author).
And, much, much more, but these were a great start.
I’m happy to discuss more and help in any way I can. I am still symptomatic but I believe my symptoms are lessened by being kind to my body, especially my liver by choosing whole foods and no oils or unnecessary fats. I get my fats from nuts, nut butters and seeds. And I limit the chemicals in my diet by eating mostly only things I make. It’s pretty easy and cheap once you get the hang of it.
