Today I'm starting...

On this 29th day of February, which only occurs in bissextile years, I am starting a new eating plan.   My friend wants to do a cleanse to kick off getting ready for clothes season.  I was interested as first, then considered the other information which has been coming into my consciousness recently:  how bad sugar is for you, how a plant based diet seems to improve the health of many, allowing them to recover from horrible diseases and conditions as well as reduce their prescriptions. 

All that sounds great, right?   Just eat your vegetables.   I already do not eat meat, but have yet to give up dairy, eggs or fish.  So I decided my 'cleanse' isn't a fad, something to do for five days, then back to the norm, but an eating plan that I can hopefully stick to for life.   It's simple and here it is: 

  • Only real foods, no processed foods
  • Vegan

And yes, I'm going to do it for five days to start.   If i can make it five days and feel better and have more energy, I'll be quite pleased.   Then perhaps I'll do another five days, until this is just how I eat.  

I'm not sure if this is a good plan, but I'm giving it a try.  

I'll let you know how it goes.  I already have no idea what to eat for breakfast.  Do people really only eat fruit?
