Jack Rambles Diet


 Summary:

I claim no nutritional insight other than self-discovery. I needed to see results quick and this diet did the trick for me.

I eat at 8am, 11am, & 4:30pm everyday like clock-work. I rarely eat out at restaurants and I've developed a passion for cooking. Coming home from a busy day to cook for my family has become like therapy. I try-out a new recipe each wk and I anxiously anticipate going to buy the new ingredients for the next culinary experiment

Beginning in January 2012 I lost 55lbs in 5 1/2 mnths.

jackrambles's top tips

1.Avoid white foods: pasta, bread or potatoes can be diet killers.
2.Search out foods that are low carb, low cal, low fat, but as high in fiber as possible,
3.Try tuna with pickled vegetables for a snack. It low carb, low fat, and low cal!
4.Avoid beef & pork, but feast on grilled fish!
5.Wean yourself off of salad dressing. Unless you use vinegar, dressings can consume your RDI (with less amount of intake) than almost anything you consume.
6.Drink lots of water! Shoot for four 20oz bottles a day.

About / History

I asked my daughter to abstain from eating a bag of Dorito's and she asked, "Why?"

Cramming a Dorito in my own mouth I said, "Because they're not good for you."

Her inquisitive reply, "Then why are you eating them?"

A light came on. I realized my pattern of life wasn't just putting nails in my coffin, but that it was also forging a path that I did not want my kids to follow. In order to change their diet, I would have to lead by example. My hypocrisy was so ridiculous that even a six-yr old could see-through it.

I have also been battling sickness as a result of a digestive disorder. Doctors have held nothing back in revealing that my diet over the last several years has played a significant role in my health struggles. In January 2012, it was well past the time to make a change, but one conversation with my daughter regarding the to-eat-or-not-to-eat question caused me to finally set my alarm for change on March 1, 2012. I had hoped 2012 would be my year, but I was admittedly off to a less than desirable start over two months in. However, March would serve to be a life-altering 30-day period for me.

In thirteen years I had digressed from running nearly a 5min mile to barely being able to walk up a flight of stairs w/o being winded. At 6''1" I ballooned from 145 lbs to 241 lbs during that period of time.

I came to realize that I was stewarding my finances better than my body -- which is crazy -- because finances will be irrelevant if I were to develop just one major illness. While I can't control all elements of my health I can at least control my side of things by filtering my intake.

I also realized that I was pleading with God to heal me of an illness that I brought on myself. Had I treated my body like the temple it is, I would not be facing my present challenges. How could I arrogantly ask God to fix something that I was continuing to tear up? For the first time in my life, I became convicted of gluttony.

75% of everything I eat is now organic and I am on a journey to live, love, and laugh; while ever-discovering The Way, The Truth, & The Life...
