Okay, so I've been a pretty bad newbie ... :( I've been trying to stick to LFRV, but I have kept giving in to cravings for cooked vegan food or worse, chocolate. :(
HOWEVER! After watching Freelee's latest video on transitioning to LFRV, I really like the meal plan guidelines she layed out and I am newly inspired to do a 30 Day challenge. Starting with being raw till supper and then having LFV cooked food like potatoes or sweet potatoes appeals vastly to me. I just need a buddy, and this is the best place for me to look for one. :) Is anyone interested? We could even form a group if possible!
Peace, love and seasonal fruit!
Yes, if I use it at all I will probably just take a look at its content and do the journalling-type exercises on paper. It's too bad it is a little hard to access, but still a great resource.
hey everyone (beginners and others) ! I have a question:
Do you guys feel dizzy ? or did you feel dizzy at the very begginning of the program?
headaches, feeling sleepy after a meal of bananas and berries... are those symptoms of detox? (I eat less than 10% fat these days)
thanks for your replies!
Hey Loloford - no, I haven't experienced that ... but I haven't gone through detox either. I do feel sleepy at times from a big carb-up ;D I think that's normal at first. But I don't know about the more unpleasant things you mentioned.
is it because we are not used to carbing up?
and the headaches appeared just today... maybe I need to exercice, I didn't lately
I expect that's the reason, yeah. Plus, the feeling of fullness from eating large amounts of fruit and veggies is likely to make one drowsy.
Personally, I get headaches when dehydrated. I'd suggest loading up on the water, keep a bottle to sip at all times!
yes I sip all day long (and pee twice per hour :-)
we'll see tomorrow, and hopefully those symptoms will cease
if anyone else experiences something please tell!
Best wishes, feel better soon! And keep us updated! :)
thank you RGA!
Today was much better and i started the day with a 1.2 kg melon breakfast, after which I felt dizzy and sleepy so I added 2 persimmons and I felt better.
I didn't wait to be hungry today and I had large meals (well, they were large for me) and snacks of dates before being crushed by hunger. and that worked, I think I missed some calories yesterday.
Today was also my 4th day totally 80/10/10, but it was not easy, I have been tempted to reach for my son's snacks, but I resisted, yay!
have a nice week end everyone!
That is all so fantastic!
I haven't seen persimmons in my area yet, can't wait for them... :)
I just want to share my excellent experience so far with mono-meals. I have been having trouble with overeating the wrong things (like LFCV food, or low-water fruit like dried dates) so I decided to really go for monomeals, instead of mixing even two kinds of fruit at a meal. It worked today! I had pears for breakfast, bananas for lunch, and finally a big salad (mixed veggies, but I think that's okay for supper) and felt more physically AND mentally satisfied. So glad I'm wrapping my head around really doing 80/10/10 the best way. =)
I totally agree with you.
we must load for breakfast, otherwise we cannot hold on through the day and tend to feel weak or binge on fat.
As I don't like bananas very much, I mix them with blueberries or a mix of red fruits, it's much easier for me.
how many calories do you have when you do that? pears are not very heavy.
I would normally have more, but I had yoga in a couple hours so I only ate a few pears. Yoga is *impossible* on a full stomach. I carbed up straight after getting home though!
