I've been inspired by those here who are eating 2500+ calories and reaping the benefits. I want to do the same, so I'm setting a challenge for myself to increase my calorie intake to 3000.
Right now I'm barely scraping past 1800. I've been adding dates to my banana smoothies to get the sugar in. Mangoes are really helpful right now too.
Today is only day 2, so my immediate goal is to get between 2000-2500. Then 2500-3000, etc.
I will say this - last night I had the soundest sleep in a long time. Rock on.
I was planning to start this on Saturday, but the hell with new year resolutions.
When I mentioned this to DH, he commented on how tired I get towards the end of the week. Pretty much like clockwork. I hadn't even realised it happening so consistently..... I guess over the last few weeks/months he's been noticing. Not a great role model for lfrv right now. Being the only vegan in my social group (with only one other vegetarian), I have more at stake than "just" my own health.
I gotta say though, I've never had a more enjoyable challenge than to eat more fruit :P
