wel i have been 811 for 2 weeks now... and was going great until the past few days!
i have been eating 3000cal, much more than cronometer suggests, drinking at least 2L a day and sleeping well...
but my mood has dropped dramatically, my energy and exercise tolerance has dropped, my skin is breaking out again and it just seems that all the gains i made in my first week of 811 have gone and i am worse off than when i stated!
i am confused!!! help!!
i do agree wiht this.. and it makes sense
but why is it that freelee and DR say to eat 3000cal + and if u feel unenergised to eat more fruit!
ur information kind of contradicts with what they are saying...
Hang on there, I am in the same situation now. This is the detox part and I agree with Don.
Just keep going on! You can try to drink 3l of water instead of 2l.
I’m on my third week on this 811 diet and had a similar experience with my energy level dropping. Just recently, I added salt to my salad and felt like my energy had increase.
I’m hoping that Don Bennett would drop in again to determine if someone on the 811 diet would need a sufficient amount of sodium in their diet to maintain their energy level.
Thank you for the detail response and to answer your question regarding on what made me decided to add salt to my diet. Well during the second week on the lfvd, I did some research on why my energy level was dropping. I happened to came across a response from a forum (can’t remember the name of the site) that he or she added salt to their diet which helped them restore their energy. However, like you said, there could have been many factors that could have contributed to my lower energy level such as not enough calories.
Like always Don, thank you again for the information. I hope to continue to learn more from you and the others in order to become more knowledgeable.
