This week I have started yet another crazy diet in my bid to eat better and rid myself of my horrible tummy issues and also of those excess pounds I seem to have gained over the last few months. (I am currently tipping the scales at over 9st 7lbs which is insane given that my target weight is 8st 7lbs!)
The thing I have found challenging in the past is that “normal” diets are not extreme enough for me to really register that I’m on a diet and therefore I just eat normally. The main problem with this is that it hurts my gut. However more extreme healthy diets are too extreme and I just can’t stick to them so I end up over compensating by bingeing which undoes all of my good work!
This time, I may have come up with a solution. It starts off with a week of following this diet and then I will see how I feel. It should allow for a more gentle candida die off as well (see my Candida blog). I am eating raw for breakfast and lunch and then having a normal dinner. I have included fruit, herbal tea infusions and humous in the “raw” in order to make this bearable and so far, so good. It is Monday and I am not starving at work! I will update you about the weight loss on here and about the candida effects on the other blog.
Recently I’ve been lacking energy so I have also added probiotics, Vitamin B complex and Korean Ginseng supplements to this and already I am feeling slightly more alert than usual. However, I do expect the candida die off to kick in soon which will not be fun.
Anyone just looking to lose some weight, this might be a great, healthy way for you to diet as you can eat as much as you like so long as it’s good stuff. Oh and you HAVE to include veggies, just fruit will not make for a healthy balance!
