My dad is going on a diet that I give him to see if it will help him have more energy and also heal a torn meniscus in his knee which doctors say surgery is the only option. I want to put him on raw foods as he has committed to a 6-8 week trial and he says he will most likely go back to McDonald’s afterwards as well as fish and other things. The problem is, he has a very fast metabolism. I wanted to slow it down with juice fasting but he is not open to that. Maybe I could put him on a 10 day master cleanse??? I do not know if he would try that or not. I told him that he needs to go on a 30 day juice fast, but he said he could not do that.
He just bought some bread that had white flour, whey, powdered milk, vitamins and some other stuff in it (brownberry bread). I told him that he cannot be having that as he needs to be eating more raw foods especially ones that do not have animal products in it. But my mom says he needs to eat something and he cannot be hungry all the time. Salads do not last long. He says that it would take at least 7 apples for him to feel full and then that would not last very long. Although a green smoothie (about three to four cups of them) last me from lunch until supper at 6:00, I do not think they will last him very long.
Soooo, what can we do to slow down his metabolism and also make his meals more filling. I want to try to make it as cheap as possible and I feel he needs to be having raw foods as if he just eats what he wants to eat (like that bread with roasted almond butter) then he most likely will not experience good results. Also my mom says that he needs to eat something, needs protein, needs fats and cannot just eat raw fruits and vegetables (because he has gotta eat something).
Sorry for the long post but any help here would be GREATLY appreciated.
