Just had a big plate of bacon and eggs. Today's menu at work is poor (sides are rice & black beans, plantains, and peas and mushrooms) so I may try for 24 hours until breakfast tomorrow. Wish me luck!
None of these sides is bad. Granted, legumes are not accepted by classic Paleo and Primal, but there are plenty of similar approaches that praise them to the stars for satiation and protein bonus. The rest are all safe, not toxic starches. The legumes are no worse than nuts, so really, if you are hungry it is better to have a plantain or rice and beans or peas & mushrooms than go hungry.
good luck! I'm fasting all day and won't eat until tomorrow.
Fasted two days ago too. Ate a good amount yesterday. Nothing since last night so it will be about 30 hours. That should give you some moral support, lol.
Interesting RE: legumes, although my "poor" comment with respect to the rest had to do with the high sugar in the plantains (me and sugar don't get along when I'm trying to lose a few lbs, even apples are rare) and the fact that I really hate peas. Thanks for the comment!
