Due to our work schedules, hubby and I eat around 8-9. We are unable to eat earlier due to work restrictions. I wake up not being hungry so I feel the food is not being digested. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Is it ok to continue to eat this late? Thanks for your input!
I have a similar problem. Would love to hear suggestions too :)
It is fine to eat late, not ideal but not a major thing. Not being hungry in the morning is common on HCRV. As you adjust to eating so much volume it will get better. What works for most is to drink lots of water first thing in the morning and then doing at least a few minutes of vigorous exercise and then to go ahead and eat a few bite slowly and chewing well or if eating a smoothie swishing well, a decent desire to eat should set in. If this does not work then you can try eating easier to digest meals the night before, mono meals of juicy fruit are best or maybe try just lettuce with your fruit.
This is great advice. I would love to do monomeal or a simple smoothie for dinner but I fear getting those veggies in since I do only fruits throughout the day. Should I maybe do veggies for lunch and then finish the day off with fruits only?
If you have smooth digestion, that should work. Or add lettuce to your mono fruit meal. Otherwise if you really have slow digestion you can skip the greens for a few weeks or juice them.
Thanks so much! Excited to try this for the next few days and see how it goes.
Yay! Let us know how it works! :)
