Food Journal Zen Diet Japanese

Hump Day Edition of Food Tracking

And here we are again, trying to get back to the ideal Zen Diet meal. Can I do it today? That is the question.

Note: The photo above is an “Afternoon Tea” meal I shared with my wife that is not quite Japanese, but is following the Zen Diet approach.

Tonight I have another fun gig, playing some R&B, Soul and Funk on the drums.

I guess I made sure I carbo-loaded yesterday and a little bit on the previous day.

Whatever diet I’m on, what I have noticed is that I really need to have some complete protein sources. The problem with the Raw Food Diet is that I don’t think I was getting enough protein. Sorry, Raw Foodists. But, in the world of athletics I don’t know of any Raw Foodists out there who thrive and perform at top level.

Seriously, do we know any Basketball or Football Raw Foodists? And, Michael Phelps who is one of the greatest athletes to have ever lived… well, he is definitely NOT a Raw Foodist.

And so that was the point I was driving at… that in order to perform at one’s physical potential (and in my case, drumming for 4 hours and all the hard labor involved with drums) I have to eat more of a Paleo Diet or Zone Diet.

And in my case, I’ve adopted a Zen Diet that will provide as much of the nutrients needed to drum at my physical best.
