I realized that I have been getting most of my calories from fat…aka, raw nuts and oils.
So, I tried that 80/10/10 thing out. I lasted 4 days. Because I had to get most of my calories from fruit, I was spending money like crazy and constantly eating and still hungry on top of it. Then, I thought-This is ridiculous!!! I can’t keep spending this much money and starve anyway!
Then I thought about raw grains and how they are more calorie-dense than fruits and they also supply many nutrients and healthy benefits for the body. They have a lot less fat than nuts and less calories. I’ve been thinking about getting most of my calories from grains, specifically buckwheat and oat groats. Isn’t this better than eating mostly fats? And, must I always soak the grains? I just had a breakfast of bananas, apples, and buckwheat groats, unsoaked, and I just read that this could be harmful…but I feel fine. So, what do you guys think?
