Week 6 Of Our Whole Food, Plant- Based, 45 Day SOS-Free Diet (No Sugar, Oil or Salt) – Our Last Week


Week 6 Of Our Whole Food, Plant- Based, 45 Day SOS-Free Diet (No Sugar, Oil or Salt) – Our Last Week

This has been the last week of our diet, before we leave for our diving trip in the Maldives.

It has been an excellent experience for us, and we are convinced that we want to continue eating a version of this diet, long term.

I know that it might be a challenge to eat a plant-based vegan diet with no oil or sugar on a remote island, but I am determined to do my very best to continue eating this way.

I have always believed that a vegan plant-based diet is a way to help heal our planet, and now I have felt the benefits of this way of eating in healing the human body.

In the past six weeks, I have read and listened to hundreds of lectures by many doctors who have shared healing stories.
They talked about eliminating chronic illnesses by simply changing the eating habits of their patients from a diet full of eggs, “healthy” oils, lean meat and fish, to a diet based only on vegetables, fruits, starches, whole grains and legumes, without any added oils.

This week we dined out for the first time since we started this diet.
It was not so hard to ask the restaurant not to add any oil, because in the USA most restaurants will go the extra mile in order to please their customers.
I know that it might not be as easy to dine out when we travel to other cultures around the world.

I ate a Vietnamese Pho soup, which they made for me with a miso broth with no oil, instead of the usual meat broth.
They also steamed the vegetables for me instead of sautéing them in oil.
For an appetizer we shared a cucumber and an avocado roll.
It was a very tasty meal and a nice break from always packing a picnic lunch when we go out.

I am so excited to be going diving.
It has been many months since we sat in the sun and felt the sun’s rays on our bodies.
Even though it is very sunny in Colorado, we have always worn the required face masks, and with warm hats and gloves all winter long, we hardly got any sun on us.

To sum up the process of changing and cleaning up our way of eating, it was a fabulous experiment.
I started this in order to lose weight and heal my knee that was throbbing and also making some crunching sounds as I bent it.

My knee is no longer throbbing or inflamed.
I have lost some weight, not as much as I had wanted, but I intend to keep going until I am back to my ideal weight.

Both of us feel much healthier and have not felt dissatisfied or hungry, except for missing a small amount of salt, which we did start to add during the last two weeks of the diet.

I have lost six pounds, and Jules has lost seven pounds.
Perhaps in the spring and summer when we are usually much more active, we will lose weight more rapidly.
I also lost four inches in my waist and almost four inches in my hips.

I still love to do juice fasting and plan to do it again in the summer.
I have also heard many good and beneficial health and weight loss results from people who do “Alternate Eating Days,” which is another way to let the body heal while fasting, and then nourishing it on the alternate eating days.

Whatever diet you wish to follow, it is important to remember that our bodies are very intelligent, efficient and self-governing energy fields, NOT decaying machines.

Our bodies need very little fuel (food), not huge amounts.
They are very efficient and naturally beautiful.

If you allow your body to heal, either by fasting or eating really wholesome plant-based foods, it will heal, reverse aging, and allow the Light to circulate through you.

Thank you for following me on this journey, and sending you lots of love and blessings,
Tali

Comments on day 38 – Today I watched a Documentary about Audrey Hepburn.
When traveling in Japan, I often see her photo in many places. No doubt she is a beauty icon for the Japanese people.

This is why I was so surprised to hear her say in her own voice, that she wished she was blond, or had a smaller nose and was less tall.
It was amazing to hear that even Audrey Hepburn, who was a beautiful dancer and actress who maintained her figure all her life, felt inadequate and not beautiful.

The human mind can play tricks on us and if we are not careful and watchful, we might allow the never satisfied nature of the mind, to rule our moods and feelings.
