Overall, I am really enjoying this. I was a little tempted last night when I made toasted ravioli and tortellini for the rest of the family, but it was only mild temptation, because I felt so full, it was very easy NOT to give in. I feel like I have bad breath, no one has complained, but when I run my tongue over my teeth, they feel coated. Makes me want to brush my teeth several times a day. I find that I don’t care for the aftertaste of anything with celery in it, so it prompts me to drink more water to get that taste out of my mouth.
Answers to questions: I am losing a little more than a pound a day. I have plenty of energy, I am sleepy tired, but not body tired. This is my 1st full week back to work after holiday break, so I would be sleepy no matter what I was doing nutritionally.
