day 21 try 2, weight 161.0
predictable 0.75 lbs per day loss
it seems fairly clear that the removal of rice and beans helped me to be able to loose 0.75 lbs a day. before the removal, my weight loss may have averaged 0.3 pounds per day. this weight loss has been without notable exercise. maybe walking about the farm a bit and pulling weeds for 20 minutes but that’s it. so it dawned on me to actually make that my explicit 30 minute morning exercise. i suspect the weight loss may accelerate to 1.0 pound a day. given there are only 9 days left of this experiment that may leave a weight of 152 (161 – 9) pounds on the last day of the 30-day Sprout and Turmeric diet. the diet is fairly steady now with the exception of one addition…
Kelp, 100% Pure Powder
so i wanted to add a teaspoon of kelp to the cabbage and Vegan Turmeric Sauce soup. hypothyroidism runs in my family. my muscles have been fatigue of late and my overall energy level low the past few years. a safe dosage of kelp powder is one teaspoon given that too much iodine in the kelp can kick my metabolism into hypothyroidism. you can see some of the benefits of kelp on Kelp Benefits: A Health Booster from the Sea.
ok, the verdict is in. just poured one flat teaspoon (from a measuring utensil) into the warmed (not boiling) cabbage and Vegan Turmeric Sauce and the taste is like an exotic delicious seafood soup. so it’s a keeper. ironically the floating cabbage has a look of floating kelp.
