Well it has been a few weeks now and I am still on the diet.  Phase 1 actually..   I passed phase 1 after a few weeks and was noticing the detox on my body, it was pretty easy then I moved on to phase 2.  As an runner who averages about 70-80 miles a week, I think I was in over my head.  The first week went fine, but after that it was all downhill.  I was having faint spells and constantly felt week, so I decided that this probably wasn't enough for me.  I went back to the first phase and now I'm feeling great again. 

For the last week my diet has looked like this:
Upon waking (Approx. 8AM):  Slamming about 3/4 Nalgene bottle of water
11AM-12PM:  Bagel, various vegetables (no dressings), various fruits
5-7PM:  Feast (at our campus buffet.. )

I would love to eat more unsalted nuts, because well.. they're delicious, but they're surprisingly expensive, especially for a college kid.  Right now my meal-plan is enough to cover the entire cost of my diet though.

Comments or suggestions?

Food & Diet / GMO's: Your Take
« on: March 10, 2008, 10:54:58 PM »
GMO = Genetically Modified Organism

Scientists are for it for health and plant preservation purposes and people are against it because they aren't informed on the changes and are for the most part unaware of some changes that can be hazardous to their health( i.e. allergens)  Personally, I am for them because I don't have any allergies that I know of.. and they also keep many plants thriving in nature.   

There is also that argument that we can't/shouldn't play God, but the way I see this is.. if plants are dying out be insect or disease, how else does someone want to protect it?  What better way is there than to add an enzyme to it's gene that protects it from its attacker?  I see this as a way to prolong life for plants as well as humans.

I am curious to see what others believe on this issue though.

I was watching The Discovery Channel just a little while ago and there was a show called Human Body: Pushing The Limits.  It was a pretty neat show, they were talking about tests with rats and calorie cuts.  The rats that cut their calorie intake lived moderately longer and they were saying that it should be the same for humans as well.  I think you're definitely onto something here.

it's really a great movie, the magic bus.  That would be a great experience, minus that one part at the end..

Hey, I'm a collegiate runner putting in about 60-75 miles per week.  I stumbled upon this site and got really curious about unlocking my "wild" side.  Just wondering if following the diet would actually be ideal or if that would drain me..  :-\   

What actually brought me to this site was my interest in Parkour/Free Running so I figured cavemen knew what they were doing and BAM here I am.  ;D
