I am 5 days in to trying out the non calorie restricted HCRV. Previously was restricting calories to about 1300 a day (I'm a small frame and 5'3" female), but then fell off the wagon, assuming my body was retaliating from the low amount of food I was eating, for 2 weeks and gained back all my weight eating cooked food and processed sugar :/
To my surprise my detox symptoms this time around are a lot different. This time around I have noticed much less energy and a slight headache. I have been eating A LOT of dates to keep me from eating cooked food, about 90% raw right now. I am wondering if cutting back on the dates and increasing sweet juicy fruit would help?
it's really surprising to me that the dates are causing trendiness and headaches while other fruit like bananas and apples wake me right up and make me feel vibrant and energetic.
