Home. Tired. After 38 hours at the hospital I came home to the miracle of my home, my roof, water and electricity. One look in our back yard reminded me the power that was here hours ago. Kids and my Dustin will be home from Ft Meyers tomorrow. Overwhelmed. Humbled. #hurricanematthew#floridanurses#godiswithus#20milemiracle
Let's clear this myth up. A diet is defined as the kinds of foods that a person, animal, or community habitually eats. Only after people decided that it was necessary to restrict calories or food to lose weight did the second use for diet come about. Being a vegan(and I eat at least 60% raw vegan) when you eat a plant based diet your food is nutritionally dense as opposed to calorie dense foods. In the past my "healthy" dinner would be a fist sized piece of chicken breast, 1 cup of canned green beans, and 1/2 cup of white rice. That was my weight loss "diet". And this is after only having 1 cup of oatmeal and maybe 3 strawberries for breakfast. And sometimes the same for lunch, this is the "diet" I lived by. For dinner last night I had a 32oz mason jar filled with blackberries, blueberries, cherries, strawberries and grapes. Then I ate plum and grapefruit. I really get appalled at people or diets that restrict what comes from the ground, but will tell you to drink some shake they came up with in a lab. As a plant based vegan it is possible to overeat but very hard. The food I eat is nutritionally dense vs calorie dense which means I need more of it to put me where I need to calorie wise. Too much attention is given to calories as well. I haven't counted a calorie, a macro, a protein, none of it. I lose weight and I'm gaining muscle. I literally can eat all day and lose weight. My bowels are performing perfectly, my skin is glowing, my hair is growing at a crazy rate, I'm happier, I'm beating obesity, my thyroid is normal sized. No pills. No skin, hair, and nail vitamins. Don't restrict yourself. Many people have told me " well we all have I die someday. I'm going to enjoy my food on the way." Ok well I'll be at your funeral when you die at 52. I'm a nurse so I have a tendency not to sugarcoat ANYTHING. I take care of the people who could have prevented illness. I clean up and teach them how to use a ileostomy bag because they didn't realize it's not ok to go days or weeks(wtf) without taking a 💩. So forgive me if I don't coddle you and hold your hand. It's your life and your body. Respect it. Take care of it. Or I'll have to do it for you.
