I agree. She is in wheelchair now with cast. It will be at lease couple of months before she can stand on her own. Since her spirit is low, I afraid that she will go for some "comfort" food. She told me today that she is craving cakes and burgers.
Thanks for the advice. I agree that health is more important than weight in the long run.
First of all, I'm very sorry for your friends accident. One of the biggest misconceptions with this diet & lifestyle is that it only works with exercise. Exercise IS important for everyone - however I have read statements such as without exercise this diet will kill you ….. Which is completely ridiculous.
If the body needs to rest and repair it will not use any less calories than when it was exerting itself with activity - this is why we feel tired & why the body is giving us pain signals/warnings when we move something that is injured.
This diet is perfect for healing - it will not do your friend any harm to have a week off fill up on lots of lovely fruit, and put activity into something such as reading, working on interests etc -(which also require sustinance!)
Also if the body does not need quite as many calories on the odd day - then thats ok, if your friend doesn't feel like eating then best to listen to your body - what you shouldn't do is not eat because you are scared your eating too much `(but essentially still hungry).
Drink lots of water, get lots of rest, don't worry about exercise. I am very clumbsy and following these rules I've healed all sorts of fractures and injurys without intervention.
Hope this helps!
