I’m really surprised at how different I feel. My energy level stays at a pretty even keel, no matter HOW bad the day might be. My cravings for sweets is 90% gone, I just occasionally want a little sweet treat, like a few chocolate covered almonds, or 1 salted caramel square, and I’m satisfied. Will definitely continue this way of eating, feeling good most of the time is MUCH better than a few seconds of pleasure eating something that’s not good for me and feeling like crap for days.
Today is my 6th day of eating low carb. There are no words to describe how I feel, well, maybe some. More energy, happier emotionally and mentally, more “stable” feeling. No roller coaster moods. I wake up feeling “alive” instead of draggy and miserable. I’ve already lost 5 lbs and am thrilled. It’s been tough every now and then, but on the whole, my cravings for sweets are pretty much gone. I eat a little fruit and I feel satisfied. I do believe this is one of the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time. Off to sleepy land!
Wow, today was tough. I feel very fatigued, which I know is from sugar withdrawal. Eating more fruit than usual definitely affected me, it certainly “cleaned” me out, ugh!
I’m ending day three and I’m not craving carbs as badly now. I’ve already lost water weight and I haven’t counted calories one bit. I’ve just eaten “real” food for the three days, meats, veggies, fruits, some nuts, water. I have to confess though, I ABSOLUTELY will NOT go without some sugar in my morning cup of coffee, that’s my morning routine and I love it.
I have to admit, right now I could’ve eaten an entire bag of chocolate chip cookies. Instead, I went to the fridge and got a handful of big, sweet organic raspberries. The craving is now passing. I feel the withdrawals now. I’m almost through day 1. Was doing great until about 4:00, then I felt those nasty little cravings creep on in. Oh my, the addiction of carbs, sighhhhhhhh!
Well, tomorrow is the big day for beginning my low carb lifestyle. I ate to my heart’s content today and tonight. Chowed down on Mexican food, followed by Creme’ Brulee. In awhile I’ll be having amaretto bread pudding, Yumm! Had my fill of candy and potato chips as well. I’m good with it all. These type of foods will be my treat every now and then. I’ll NEVER completely go without eating something that is downright yummy and delicious, life’s toooooo short to do that.
I’m eating whatever I want until I start my healthy eating on Saturday. Had candy, pumpkin bread, cookies, chips, and even McDonald’s. LOL Was it ever goooooood! I know myself, I have to “psychologically” prepare for changes in eating, this is what works for me.
Looking forward to beginning my healthier way of eating on Saturday. I’m really excited about my 30 day challenge to myself!
