Another great food plan from Wagmu

Breakfast
  • Bread, whole-wheat, toasted, 50 grams.
  • Coffee with milk, three 282-gram servings.
  • Milk, nonfat, fluid, 1 cup.
Lunch
  • Cabbage, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt, 200 grams.
  • Seeds, sunflower seed kernels, dry roasted, without salt, 75 grams.
  • Peas, green, frozen, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt, 280 grams.
  • Milk, nonfat, fluid, 2 cups.
Dinner
  • Cheese, cheddar, 30 grams
  • Carrots, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt, 20 grams
  • New Zealand spinach, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt, 120 grams
  • Broccoli, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt, 90 grams
  • Milk, nonfat, fluid, 1 cup.
  • Alcoholic Beverage, wine, table, red, Merlot 6 fl oz
This has about 7,060 kjoules (1,690 kcals), so you'll probably lose weight on this. This plan is naturally vegetarian (depending on whether you include cheese and milk as vegetarian). And it's cheap! The expensive bits are the wine and coffee, of course.

This has all required nutrients for a middle-aged guy (like me), except it's short choline. A few years ago, the U.S. government specified an adequate intake for choline, but it's got me scratching my head, because I don't see how my diet can have enough choline, unless I'm willing to eat a lot of lecithin, liver, eggs, or broccoli. So I'm disclosing the choline deficiency in this diet. This is not a fault of Wagmu, but rather what appears to be an overly high Adequate Intake set by the U.S. government.

Hey dad!

But I find lecithin so tasty! Much more tasty than butter anyway.

Love!
