Vegetarian Whole Grains and Veggies Plus


 Summary:

My diet is probably similar to Ornish but I add on a lot of supplementation from protein powders (soy, pea, whey, etc.) and fiber supplements (psyllium, acacia fiber, glucomannan, etc.). Be careful with fiber supplements. Some people may not be able to take as much as I do because their insides might gum up. People who have had GI surgery generally can't do a lot of psyllium at once.

Some of the key points are: take fiber supplements frequently to fill yourself up (and provide other healthy benefits), drink lots of water, and stick to a low caloric density (lots of fruits and vegetables).

Activated charcoal and bentonite clay can be used after overeating.

One of your goals is to make your stool float (sounds gross, but if this is happening, you are there).

sngourd's top tips

1.Take a fiber supplement before each meal so you won't eat as much. My most common fiber supplements are psyllium, acacia fiber, glucomannan.
2.Take small bites and chew them throughly until the food is liquid. At least 20-25 chews per bite.
3.Drink lots of water. Herbal tea with a little bit of squeezed lemon or cranberry is a good substitute for soft drinks.
4.If you overeat, take activated charcoal and/or bentonite clay or pascalite clay afterwards. Best to mix with water and a fiber supplement.
5.My diet is all vegetarian. Dairy products are de-emphasized. Natural raw ingredients are best but I also end up supplementing with nutrition bars and protein powders. Eat lots of fruit and veggies and seek out organic whenever possible. Substitute soycheese for cheese whenever possible.
6.If you eat packaged dinners (TV dinners), go for the natural kind.
