Diabetes Symptoms present.
I have been going raw during the day and my only cooked food at dinner. Energy and sleep is amazing! Waking up every morning completely wired and awake full of energy. It's just so funny a body can feel this good!Day 27 Saturday December 10
Christmas Party was just too much fun with too much food. Jagermeister added up a zillion calories and a midnight binge on sub sandwiches murdered me. What the heck, a Christmas party comes but once a year right? Man, I wish I didn't eat those cheese and meat sandwiches cuz I feel like crap!Day 30 Tuesday Tuesday December 13
The New Measurements after 30 days:
Day 32 Thursday December 15
Amazing on how great I feel for the day from the fresh juice and smoothie! I love the Green Tea I am drinking which I now drink in the mornings since I learned it has a little caffeine in it. Green Tea is loaded with anti-oxidants and here is a great article about it: http://www.emedexpert.com/tips/greentea.shtml. However, it does have a little bit of caffeine and I drink about 50oz. in the morning which I feel great, but I do wonder exactly how harmful the caffeine is long term....Does the risk outweigh the reward? I don't know and will look into it further. I like to start my morning with 50oz of water/tea because for me it really flushes out my system and I feel like my body is in a detox mode in the morning. I can't drink plain water and not a huge fan of the tasted of just lemon water. I will have to look into this further. But a typical day for me is flushing my body with lots of water in the morning. My next thing I take is usually some fresh juice of some kind or a fruit/green smoothie. The smoothie has lots of fruit in it, hemp seed, dulse and a little broccoli. Then the rest of the day it's mixed up with fruits, veggies, seeds, nuts, smoothies, salads and dinner time is when I will have any cooked food. I am not perfect and sometimes will have snacks like a rice cake with almond butter on it or a loaded veggie sandwich or burrito, but I do the best I can to stay mostly raw. But mixing it up works for me personally and that's how I roll!
Day 34 Saturday December 17
ugh....did not drink enough water today or healthy foods and loaded up on mom's cookies and sushi. I feel lethargic and glad this day is over. I will not splurge like this again. Was not worth it at all.Day 35 Sunday December 18, 2011
Woke up today "okay" but lacking my normally high energy. Had a bloody and stuffed up nose and a little clogged. No question eating crap has consequences. Ugh... I think I am going to limit my splurge days to 2x per month OR just cut way back on my weekly splurge day.
Day 36 Monday December 19, 2011
I notice that when I go mostly raw I lose weight easily, but when I cook my food I maintain or gain weight. I also have much more energy when I eat mostly raw. I don't care what the so called "expert doctors" say about anything. I am living proof of what works and what doesn't.
Day 37 Tuesday December 20, 2011
I am disgusted from the crap the last few days that have made me feel somewhat sluggish. I'm gonna flush those cookies and crap out of my body for a couple days. Day 43 Monday December 26
Christmas season has been very busy this past week so I have not been able to get on here. This season comes once a year and I basically let loose and just enjoyed it all. I admit I feel sluggish and lack the normal high energy I always have when I am focused on fruits and veggies. I still am getting healthy fruits and veggies in me during this time and amazingly for the first time in years I have yet to get sick during the winter season. Many, many of my family and friends are catching colds or flu's. They should try my diet for 30 days and they would be blown away. ;-) I can't wait for the New Year to start so I can be done with the Holiday Goodies! Just a few more days!
I am started a new journey and new blog January 1st so please VIEW MY NEW JOURNEY HERE.
