Sooooo, today marks week 7 of my high carb journey, not 100% raw, cut out rice 3 weeks ago, have been eating steamed potatoes regularly in the evening (best quality local organic/home grown) none the less they are bloating me out, so I'm going to try and cut them out as I know they are not meant to be a transitional tool.
I have had NO overt fat for the past 7 weeks, not so much as a,pine cernal in sight, freelee & DR did this for 2 yrs solid??
Anyway, I've been reading that fats help regulate hormones, I've been totally out of whack for months now, I have been cramming in the calories, aiming for 3000 a day I'm 21, 5'4" @ 147lbsish. I am doing yoga, walking, occasional jogging, cycling etc.. All moderates I've been dealing with image related social anxiety for a number of years now, I've put on 14lbs in the past few months, detoxing in my face. It's got to the point where I can't look at people in the eye, or even talk propperly sometimes.. This is getting really hard for me as every step I take in the right direction seems to take me further away fromy peers and social inclusion. My moods are all over the place...
You could always add in some avocado. It's 80/10/10, not 95/5/5.
I would recommend trying to cut out all cruciferous veggies, they make me feel sort of how you just described... I really would just try all normal lettuce like iceberg, romaine, or butter leaf, plus your normal fruits... I bet doing that will calm you down a bit... If I eat cruciferous, it makes me feel crazy...
I've heard people say that. Guess it's a real thing
try and see what works for yourself
see how you feel with avocado & nuts /seeds
and see how you feel without them
Have included 1/2 avocado a week, as for my emotional state, I'm still dealing with my body dis-morphia, I had to stop myself from crying 10 times today standing behind the till @ work, I just keep getting bigger and bigger. Or maybe I'm not, maybe it's in my head.... I have signed up to get some counselling anyways.
I think your biggest problem is yourself. You need to CTFU and work on PMA Lyra.
1/2 an avo a week is not going to do anything for your emotional state on a physiological level. Thats purely psychosomatic. Its like the trick of putting a rock in a runners shorts during a race to mess with their head. They will waste more energy thinking about the rock, getting rid of it and then thinking about why you did it. At the finish line you can just laugh about it but you defo got an advantage over mentally weak runners on the sly.
Sounds like you really fried yourself for many years. Relax, CTFU, drink a quart of water before breakfast each morning, go to bed near sundown and meditate in savasana pose. This will put you on the right track mate. :)
