I'm about 1 month 100% LFRV and summer is starting here in NZ. I've had some amazing changes since being 811, well more like 955. I've been able to jog - ((very slowly)) - for the first time in YEARS! Better moods, sleep, no plaque build up on my teeth...
However today i freaked out a bit because i have gained weight since being raw and it's time to wear summer clothes - i'm not sure how much but my pants are tighter and my face is puffier.
I was low carb high fat for about 6 years before this, which kept the water off my body.
Now i feel like a wobbling balloon from breakfast onwards.
I see for others it lasted a couple of weeks. I'm scared this way of life/eating won't work for me like it is for others.
I have just come out of severe Chronic Fatigue so i am not fit yet, but i'm jogging/walking about 30 mins a day which is my maximum fitness level at the moment ....my lungs are puffing doing just that! I haven't been able to exercise for 6 years.
I'm guessing my body may take time to readjust and get used to using all the carbs?
Oh and i eat 2500ish cals per day.
Any advise or similar experiences?
