Vegetables and diet

This post by Sarah Constantin about the Fasting Mimicking Diet looks interesting (I generally trust her health recommendations, insofar as I trust anyone's).

In particular the concrete diet plan suggested is:

For the first five weekdays of every month, eat nothing but (non-potato) vegetables, cooked in fat if desired. The rest of the time, eat whatever you want.

I've previously written about trying to eat more vegetables, where I'm trying to bring my meals up to at least half vegetables by volume. I've been doing pretty well on this for most non-breakfast meals, with the exception of lunches when I go in to imperial.

I'm quite tempted to try this diet, in large part because it will I think force me to sort out my bringing lunch to work situation.
