Nuttin’ But Salads N=1 Experiment: Week 14 Summary

A new salad ingredient for me, front and center: artichoke hearts

Good compliance for me this week. Nevertheless, weight is up to 163.8 lb (74.5 kg) compared to 160.2 lb (72.8 kg) last week. Last weeks weight was unusually low.

I feel good. Workouts are going well. No performance deterioration with this plant-based diet.

June 5 will by my four-month anniversary on this diet. I’ll stop at that point, after 17 weeks. That’s adequate as a proof-of-concept. Haven’t decided how I’ll transition off. Tempted to continue with only two meals daily, one being a large salad, but what of the other? Considering a protein (meat, chicken, fish, eggs) plus cooked vegetables (low-carb or not?) and/or legumes.
