30 Bananas a Day!

Diet Before HCRV

At the time I thought it was the right thing. I used to always overcount calories just so I wouldn't go over my 'limit'. I used to do 1 hour strenuous cardio, 1 hour heavy weights (body pump class) and then 1 hour of laps in my pool every day. I couldn't eat fruit because 'fruit made you fat'. I look back on it now and realise how silly I'd been but am happy that I no longer eat that way. I would eat like this everyday and if it wasn't fish it was egg without the yolk. Also my 3 hours of exercise always came after my salad I had for dinner and since I finished exercising usually around 8 I wasn't 'allowed' to eat anything but I always craved something sweet! I wonder why... Rather than fruit every once in a while i'd have around 150mls of no cal jelly. It was all like some sort of ritual. I was always soooo hungry and would lie to myself that it was a good feeling and learnt to 'love' it.. This sort of behaviour lead to psychological sorts of problems. All I could think about was food. I began to binge it was like I'd been hypnotised. I moved without thinking to cereals, pastas, meats it had me completely baffled. I was usually in total control what was going on! Well I thought there's an easy fix and sunk that one step lower. Then I began to develop a lot of issues emotionally and physically. Everything got out of hand. My hair was falling out, I began to get cavities (I brushed my teeth every morning and night!), my skin was dry, my bones hurt, I felt weak, developed depression, hormonal imbalances, digestive problems, severe cold sensitivity, severe mental fog and confusion and the list goes on and on. I now understand why it resulted in such an outcome, I just wish I'd come by this lifestyle sooner but hey, live in the present right! This is for all of those who think calorie restriction is the way to good health.

Would also like to add that even though I went from 70 kilos to 49 kilos within 5 months eating this way I rebounded badly (described above) and gained it all back within a year.
