sigh... Wednesday. Friday is supposed to be the end of my "three-week anti-inflammatory diet", and I am supposed to start adding things back. Problem is I haven't been as strict as I should be the last week. I was traveling last week, and am leaving for a family reunion tomorrow. I have been trying to both follow the diet my naturopathic doctor gave me, and stay low-carb at the same time. That really hasn't worked very well. When I can only eat chicken, turkey, fish, berries, vegetables (some), nuts and seeds, my options are really limited. I know some people successfully eat like that normally, but I just can't do it. So my carbs have been too high, and all my cravings are back with a vengeance. This morning I pretty much decided to throw in the towel, and start fresh on Monday... but I haven't actually eaten anything off the diet yet today. I'm worried I will turn around 6 months from now and wonder why I ever went off my plan.
So, for now, my plan is:
Today-Sunday: try to keep as low carb as possible, but not worry about the other diet for now
Aug 5-12: a solid week on my "anti-inflammatory diet"
Aug 12-21: add back one of cheese, eggs, gluten, every three days
Aug 22: back to my naturopathic doc to see what she says about it all...
Aug 26-30: Fat Fast to get back in ketosis before school (work) starts
followed by two weeks of Induction again.
The worst part? With all this crazy dieting, I have actually GAINED weight this month!!! arggg!
