Eat What I Want? .... Not Really!
Saturday, January 19, 2013
I am wanting my "wanter" to change, but contrary to my previous blog, I can't eat what I want and still have the results I want. How do I know this? I stayed in my calorie range even though I ate sugary treats for 3 days in a row this week with no weight loss.
I ate healthy for 36 hours and dropped a pound in water retention. I am not diabetic, but when I eat sugar my body stores massive amounts of fluids, this in turn suppresses my immune system and Wah Lah, I now have a cold. I know it was water retention because my body has been letting it all go!
I have had my suspicions about this in the past but this time I made a science study out of myself. In order to see if I am correct, I will try this again ....in a few months. Normally, I stay totally healthy while family all around me is sick. I know of course that the immune system has a big say in the matter of health. The lymph system is part of what protects us and is also what will store fluid. I can really tell when I am retaining fluid because my calves get hard and normally they have some softness to them.
We do have to each figure out what works for our body. I figured this one out! Sniffle, Sniffle.
