Hi Susan, I am just checking in to see how you did this week? I did e-mail you but I don't know if you got the e-mail. Every time I get on this site my computer slows down. I mean REALLY slows down. Linda 1764 days ago
Before I posted this, I thought I was the only one with this malfunction button! I'm getting back on track today. All the trigger foods are gone, and I am focusing in staying in range, watching my sodium intake, and drinking lots of water to flush out that sodium.
Thanks for the friend add. I've added you too.
Rotational diets, yes lots of those around with varying methodology, but it boils down to very low calorie ON, then an OFF week of almost normal and back again. Many diets work in some kind of cycle, but they usually explain it as helping you to adhere with more flexibility. I don't need flexibility... I need a plan! So I stick to what works then it stops working and I scratch my head. Not once has it ever occured to me (or been explained) that there was a physical reason for a regrouping week. Good grief!!
I understand not being hungry and that's part of my problem too. I eat so many veggies that I'm not ever hungry. That's how I was undereating and even when I knew I needed more calories I couldn't stuff them in. Note to self: eat more chocolate. Haha. I hope that information is helpful to you. I'm completely amazed by what I have learned and the physiology behind it. I've never had a diet book explain it and now I feel like I might be better equipped to finish this. 1828 days ago
