Day five of the experiment

Today I took a closer look at, what I’m eating and at the amount of calories I get per day. It’s not a lot, only about 1250 calories a day, but still I’m not hungry. I feel good and satisfied. Maybe it’s because I also get a lot of water at the same time.

Here is what I eat in one day:

1 lemon (I juice it and drink the juice in a large glass of water in the morning)

1 kg potatoes, ½ kg carrots, 200 g parsnips, 200 g parsley root, 200 g celery

I peel the vegetables, cut them into small pieces and cook them in 3 liters of water till they are tender. Then I either blend them or eat the soup as it is.

I still haven’t started eating garlic to lower whatever inflammation I might have in my body. It’s a bit of a hurdle for me to have to eat those 30 cloves a day.

Living in the country side is in many ways very different from what I am used to. For instance I haven’t owned a car for about 30 years, because I didn’t need one. That has to change now, because the nearest bus stop is 10-15 minutes away from here and the bus only goes 2 or 3 times an hour. Luckily my house mates own 2 cars and so far that was enough, but it would be nice to have my own.

Because I don’t have my own car, I hardly ever get into town, but today I went there to pick up a ring. I’ve been looking for the right one for a long time and finally found one some weeks ago. It’s silver with a quite large topaz. It was love at first sight. Unfortunately the shop only had it in small sizes and I have rather thick fingers, so I had to have it refitted.


It took a few weeks, but finally they called me yesterday, and I picked it up today and am as happy about it as can be.
