30 days later…

I apologize for the lame title but I couldn’t come up with anything more catchy.

So, it’s been roughly 30 days since my last post and it’s time to let you know about our experiment.

I am somewhat sad to report that we didn’t persevere.

We actually just lasted about a week before we caved in and decided to actually eat ‘happy’ and be productive in our last days of university instead of worrying about food each day because we have no idea how to combine all those things we bought.

So yes, we ate potatoes. And yes, I had cheese and my friend had meat.  

However, I managed to have a healthy breakfast each day and I eat a lot of fruit compared to before. Instead of the ‘nutella toast’ I had before, I now eat wholegrain cornflakes with a banana and (soy) milk. In addition I have a kiwi and two peaches. Quite good, eh?

Is Fruits for Breakfast A Good Option?

I also don’t eat after 7pm (unless I’m eating out, then I try to finish before 8pm.), and I do some stretching (almost) every morning. I feel better, though I guess in terms of weight nothing really changed.

Maybe I will try that whole thing again in August, when I have free-time and no worries about my bachelor thesis not being finished on time. 😀 Because until the end of the month, I’ll be writing my heart out to finish that blasted thing as early as possible. And as always, I’ll motivate myself with all things Disney. 

THE classic motivational song: Go the distance from Hercules.


On a side note:

Good luck to the National German Soccer Team in the world cup game against France tonight! 

Also, Happy 4th of July to my friends in the US!

The 30 days Challenge

Hello everyone,

Guess what! Today I am starting a whole new exciting challenge: I will be eating vegan food for 30 days!

You probably wonder why the hell I would do that. Well, I tried to change my eating habits a couple of times, but it was always the lazy way of “Ok, so today I’ll buy some vegetables…”. Needless to say, I never stuck with any of the changes.

So now my friend and I decided to radically change, but only for 30 days. The goal is to persevere and not give up until the end. Until now, our daily food consisted of dairy products, meat, and a lot of wheat products (such as pasta, pasta, pasta and oh, pasta! Also, white bread). From today on, those are completely banned.

We will instead use soy milk, tofu and whole grain pasta. We will eat more veggies and more fruit. And drink tons and tons of green tea, for it helps to stifle hunger and gives some energy. Industrial sugar and any other chemical stuff is also banned. No coke, no chocolate. What’s hardest for me though is: NO CHEESE! I have no idea yet how to survive that.


On Saturday, we sinned one last time: Breakfast with scrambled eggs, toast, marmalade, cheese, ham and orange juice. In the evening we had Italian dinner: pizza with cheese, macaroni with tuna and cheese and coke. Nomnomnom. It felt like the last supper.

Since neither of us knows anything about vegan food, we used the book “Vegan for fit” as inspiration and created our own recipies from there. The book is not strictly vegan, it is rather a low-carb diet with vegan food. We are not going to be vegan in the sense of not buying any animal products at all, we just want to eat differently.

So I’ll infrequently post how things are going, if we still manage of if we have died of hunger (or broken into a supermarket to raid the fridge).

And after 30 days we will be like this: 

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post! Cheers!
