So, probably a smoothie early, fruit through the day with a smattering of nuts or nut butters, another smoothie later and a salad for dinner. Between the smoothies and the salad I should have more than enough veggies even though I'll be doing less. Of course, for a day or two I might give myself a treat and skip the smoothie so I can learn to chew again. :) I'll have to try and find a smoothie I can stomach with an even higher veggie-to-fruit ratio. That will be the bulk of my second half. To many it may sound boring, but to me it sounds like heaven. My only concern is the possibility of overeating. I am hoping the last 30 days will have changed me in such a way that less food is enough. Then, of course, there is the concern of gaining the weight back. That will only happen if I don't watch what is happening.
And, of course, now that the next half of the Reboot starts tomorrow, I'm allowing myself to look beyond to the end of the Reboot and to "normal life". My feeling is that I'd probably continue on, in general, with a diet similar to that of the second half of the Reboot except my dinners would be a bit different. Two smoothies a day (larger emphasis on veggies and less on fruits and fewer ounces to drink) will still be there, but I will have to find some kind of variety for dinner so my wife doesn't murder me. So, I'll use the guidelines in Dr. Fuhrman's book and see how that goes. I may mix Dr. Fuhrman's information with Macrobiotics and see how that works out. There will be a bit less fruit in the cold weather, but I do enjoy my fruit, so we'll see. I think I can get my wife on board easier with the beans and lentils and some rice now and then in there. If she knows she can cook something and it isn't all raw she'll be more likely to jump on the bandwagon.
So, for now, as I sip the water from day 30 I'll just have to trust myself and my body to do the right thing for the next 30 days. If I need help, I'll put a shout out to the Rebooters. I know you'll be there.
