What I eat


This is my personal approach to eating taken from various schools of thought. It is not meant to be a prescription for anyone else.  Play with it. Keep what works and toss the rest.  Enjoy the journey.


The Foundation Foods

I Eat these daily.

Where's the Beef?

I avoid all meats and dairy and have yet to see any negative effects. I'll add the occasional plant based protein powder, but it isn't really necessary. 

(Healthy) Foods I Avoid

I just don't feel great eating these

I avoid cheese and milk, but will allow whole grain bread (often with peanut butter!).  I do skip eggs, but I plan to run an allergy test on them to be sure I have to keep them off the menu. 

When To Eat?

Timing of Meals

I try to stay in-line with circadian rhythms while giving the digestive system a break for about 14-16 hours every day. Under this model, one would eat upon rising with the light and have a early, light dinner - shifting the bulk of calories earlier in the day. 

In practice, that is very hard to do (ie. family dinners).  As such, my daily goal is to finish eating by 6 or 7pm. The next morning, I make a smoothie around 10am.  Not perfect, but it works most of the time.
