Post a picture of what you just ate

Thanks Mechanism for the exhaustive and fascinating details, I like above all the name you chose for this unique regimen, the Spartan Diet, which is very appropriate. The level of discipline it requires is absolutely beyond average and you have rightly pointed out that it may come not without some risks for those who do not have a profound theoretical background of all details involved.

I reckon You'll be probably able to judge the results more objectively in 2-3 years, after a 5 year period has elapsed.

Thanks Mechanism!    Clearly,   a lot of thought went into the SFD,   and a lot of discipline mustered to carry out out.  Congratulations!  Молодец!   

I personally would love to read a book on the SFD to review all the scientific  rationales behind it  (even though there is little chance of me adopting it --but who knows?)

Pretty simple, delicious, and healthy plant-based meal for me here. That is as follows:

  • 2 orange sweet potatoes
  • Spice mix (turmeric, cumin, organic 15 + spice mix)
  • Berry mix
  • Chia seeds
  • Walnuts
  • A side dish of 8oz of steamed broccoli

Basic but excellent lunch!

OK, here is my Cronometer day.  No veggies to speak of, but just didn't feel like it today.  Tomorrow is another day.
 

Ron, I'm wondering how you are able to hit 1000+mg of calcium on that plan? It looks like a great dietary pattern! Today's supper was as follows:

  • Steamed arugula, kale, and a whole beet. 
  • A random mix of whatever I had around - green lentils, kidney beans, corn, oats, brazil nuts, banana, zucchini, 4 berry mix, cherries, spice medley, turmeric, etc. These mixes have a habit of really hitting the spot! 
  • The calorie total for the meal was likely 700-800.

Three cheers for basic plant-based dishes!

This looks delicious!

As to calcium, I cheat :)  I take 333 mg of calcium supplement every day.

My second meal of the day today, for approximately 900 calories! Decently hungry after 60 min of mountain bike riding, chores around the house, and playing with my kids. 

Bowl on the left:

  • From the garden - grand rapids lettuce, kale, beet greens, spinach, radish, chives, oregano, basil, chives, onion + Not from the garden - balsamic vinegar, banana (this is my version of the dressing, which I use regularly). I don't weigh anything as the quantity will vary depending on what's in my garden, but I'm certain it's 1 lb+ of fresh local/organic/just picked produce

Bowl on the right:

  • Green lentils, mung beans, chia seeds, mango/pineapple/spinach (from frozen smoothy mix), goji berries, almond butter
