I've just finished a ride and burst into tears. So I though it must be about time I ask for some much needed help.
After 10 months into HCLFV I am not thriving I'm not feeling like I should be. I'm tired most of the time my skin keeps breaking out my mental clarity feels pretty average if not worst most days. I stuff in the fruit during the day and then potatoes and veggies at night (rice does not digest well) averaging about 2,000 - 2,300 a day, I drink at least 3lts of water each day, and I always feel over full and gross there is no way I could fit another bite in. I was never overweight and now I am which is very disheartening.
I exercise 6 days a week riding, running and strength training. Im always moving.
I'm at the point where I think I may have to reduce the amount Im eating.
My man has been vegan consistently for the last 5 months is feeling the best he has ever felt, he eats less than me with a higher fat % in his diet which includes grains and bread. He has lost and is losing more fat and gaining heaps of energy everyday.
Has anyone out there had these issues and overcome them?
Hi Dana, I dont weigh myself so I have no figures to tell you. Although, I notice my tummy is flatter each morning and my work pants will do up now without a massive struggle like before. But that could be fluid or better digestion. If I do notice weight loss I will let you know :)
keep it raw it matters no idea how or why you left that part out
