Phase 1

Phase 1


Day 2 of making my way through 'The List' that, before Motivational Monday, I didn't even know existed! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ (Partly my fault for not researching enough when I started DDPY).

I have made a note on what the do's & don'ts are for Phase 1 and I have to say I'm both excited & terrified at the same time. Whilst I have definitely developed a better relationship with food since I started my Vegetarian/Vegan journey, I have always told myself that I can still have the junk food I love but in moderation. Whilst that is true & you can still lose weight from it, I guess if you want that full health you need to push past comfortable boundaries.

I'm ready.

Now, seen as I already follow a Vegan diet I have cut dairy anyway (which is part of Phase 2) but I worry about the 'Processed foods' bit in Phase 1 purely because I like meat alternatives & I don't know if I can still have them seen as I don't eat meat, seafood, fish etc? I like Tofu, but it's not something I could eat a lot. I guess I could try Tempeh etc too.

I have these ready to put up on the fridge, cupboards & will probably put it as my damn phone background too! πŸ˜…


I have reached out to the DDPY guys & gals for answers, but not 100% sure if they will actually receive it.

We will see!

  • Lentils & Beans are an amazing Protein source, well done! I will definitely update this post or start a new one if I hear back.
  • That's a really good question. I'm not vegan, but I do eat 90+% whole foods. I'm sure the DDPY reps will have the best answer for you. I'm starting to learn how to incorporate lentils and beans to replace meat for a portion of my protein intake. I'm still interested in their response to your question, though. Please keep us updated.
