I Can Do This!

Friday, July 12, 2013

I think that my body is finally adjusting to my drastically reduced carb intake and the withdrawal from caffeine/sugar is starting to lessen. I don't feel as bad as I did a couple of days ago and, although it still hurts, the headache is getting better. Although I am still craving sweets that too is a little better. I know that it just takes a little time to adjust, but it is hard. I am doing pretty good though. My main carb intake is in the form of fruit...watermelon, canteloupe, and peaches, so that helps a lot because I love fruit. I am trying to drink plenty of water, tea, and a little minute maid light for some flavor...though I am going easy on it because of the artificial sweetener. I keep telling myself that I can do this. I think that I will feel much better in a few days. :)

    Yes you can! yay!

Watch out for that rice and mac-n-cheese tho! You see how that runs up your carbs. (I'm a mac-n-cheese fanatic myself; and I'm still craving rice, alas).

And kick that low-fat, skinless, etc stuff to the curb. You NEED the fats when you're low-carbing. Don't fear the (good) fats!

    GREAT WORK!!!!!
Just know that it DOES get a little easier once you get through (or past most of) those withdrawal symptoms. I've been through this several times, so I feel like I'm your solidarity sister. ;-)

Keep up the good work. The fruits will help greatly and you'll probably even realize on your food tracker that you don't need any processed grains (or processed foods) to meet all the carb, protein, and fat requirements if it's done right.

Thanks for sharing, and keep up the good work!
