Posts Tagged ‘low carbohydrate diet’

Today I woke up with a lot of energy and my mood was really positive. This is my second day of not feeling very nauseous and so I seem to be adjusting. The other thing I have noticed is that my nails have suddenly grown really white and are much stronger rather than been all brittle. Also I am no longer using my asthma inhaler. So lots of these things make me happy. I found I was just not hungry during the day. But I have felt very minor cravings tonight but totally manageable. But it is always scary to feel those cravings because I worry that they will get worse. I know I should just eat more but I am still set in that calories matter mindset. 

My exercise routine is going strong. I noticed that I was a lot more consistent today. Usually when I exercise I start off with a bang and my heart rate stays quite low and so I have to keep turning up the levels on the treadmill then after 10mins I get tired and I slow down. But today although I didn’t get to the high levels I just cruised for 20 mins and still burn’t off the same amount of calories. So it seems that my heart rate is no longer fluctuating and is remaining a lot more stable. 

I find I am eating a LOT of eggs. But the thing is they are just so cheap and they make the most efficient low carb snack I can find or think of. I should really buy a few chickens and save myself some money:)
