Fruit till noon, raw till dinner.
Posted By: Leah
If you've ever read of heard of Skinny Bitch this is what the book's all about. It took me a while to understand how and why, but if you want to skip the rest of this post, and buy Skinny Bitch used on Amazon for $4, feel free.
I don't know about you, but I will eat anything that I bring for lunch. Yes, I do have the hospital cafeteria right by me, and yes I'll totally hit it up from time to time (and I *may* order the chicken salad wrap), but most of the week I'll eat whatever I brought. What's important is a full belly. What did you eat 2 tuesdays ago? ok, unless you are on WW or tracking your food, and can look it up, you have no idea. Why? because it doesn't really matter. It really, truly, was not an important meal to you and the only important thing is that your belly got full, right? right.
it is pretty rare that people crave a salad... if they do, it's probably what's on the salad (bleu cheese (salt, fat), dressing (sugar, fat, salt)). See where I'm going with this? So what I'm telling you to do is to get the heck overyourself.
so now you want to know what's up with dinner. Well friends, here's the good news. by eating so much raw food you will not be starving or even hungry for dinner. something about all that rawness is an appetite supressant. how would you like to eat a sleeve of cookie dough for dinner? Yes please! lets say that weighs 1/2 lb. Ok how would you like to eat 1/2 lb of... some delicious .... lettuce! that'll be maybe 10 cups of lettuce, right? you will not be starving and you can eat what you want for dinner and not be ravelous and eat a bag of cheetos while your lean cuisine is in the microwave. (no, don't go eat 10 cups lettuce. you are missing the point. you couldn't eat 10 cups of lettuce if you wanted to. but you COULD eat a sleeve of cookie dough). Oh, and don't even think about not using some kind dip/dressing on your salad.
