80/10/10 challenge... DAY ONE

JANUARY 80/10/10 RawFu Challenge:

From now on, I am sticking to 80/10/10. It is a diet where I get 80% or more of my calories from carbs, 10% or less from protein and 10% or less from fat. I eat mostly fruit with some greens and very little nuts.

In this challenge I am trying my best to EAT MY GREENS! I had a hard time with this in the past, but I know I can do this!!! Not to mention, I never get the "RAW FOOD ENERGY" or "RAW FOOD HIGH" without greens.. so, HERE WE GO!

breakfast:
-1 grapefruit
-juice of 9 clementines
-pomegranate-orange juice (1 pomegranate - 2 naval oranges)

lunch:
-smoothie:
4 bananas
3 cups spinach
1 stick of celery
water

dinner:
-romaine lettuce (1.5 hearts)
-celery (25 inches worth total)
-medjool dates (5 smallish)
-banana (3 medium/large)

For dinner, I had 2 courses. They were both using these same ingredients. First, I made wraps. I blended 5 dates, 2 bananas, and a couple romaine leaves. This made a really sweet sauce. I would chop up celery and the other banana and pour the sauce on top of a large romaine leaf and eat it like a wrap. I had a few of these.

Next, I had a salad. I chopped the romaine and some celery and placed it in a bowl. I also chopped the rest of the banana and then poured the rest of the sweet date-banana-romaine sauce over it for a dressing. It is very sweet and tasty. I highly recommend this.

I was going to take a picture but I realized my camera was in the car and I didn't feel like getting it. I will take a picture next time, because this is definitely something i will do again. =)

You could even eat the sauce/dressing as a soup. Its soooo sweet. MMmmmm.


My ratio was 92/5/3.

I ate about 1690 calories or so. I got about 24 grams of protein. (i may try to bump this up)


EXERCISE:

3 sets of:
-pushups
-weights (3 different exercises)
-pull ups

Then i worked with more weights...

Then I did a short ab workout.

Then I climbed for a little bit.



Today was a good 80/10/10 day. I feel really good!

Just curious, do you drink water during the day? If so, how much?
