30 Bananas a Day!

Feeling incredibly frustrated with the weight I'v put on.

I don't really know where to begin, because I've said it all before tbh, I just hate being at the beginning, I do want results now! 

I am seeing some results. My skin, in general, looks much better, I've got to stop picking at it/worrying about it and just get on with it. Still n  ot washing my face with soap, just using water, seems to be working a treat, my boyfriend says my skin is looking much much better, and so does everyone around me. I think so too. 

Just feeling a bit pathetic, as I'm bigger than I was, even though I've got less body fat (I think). I've cut out all overt fat, no nuts, no seeds, no avocado, no coconut, nothing for the past 5 weeks (5 weeks today). I'm just going to stick to this until Christmas, where I am going to celebrate with Freelee's corn and avocado chowder. But for now, avoiding anything with fat in it, and just upping the sugar.

Also having to read up on dental hygiene, as I do have problems, I think it should be made obvious to the people who see people not brushing with anything, just using water, that they may not have any of the dental bacteria that excrete acid anymore.

On a brighter note, I have found a brilliant wholesale market in Manchester, which I will be visiting on a frequent basis. 

Going to get on strava and start running again properly, got my first decent nights sleep in a long time last night, watched durian rider re: no sleeping excuses, and reinforced that I need to sleep, did it consistently, won over my ego. 

I suppose it's just frustrating looking at pictures of me 6 months ago when I had clear skin, a slim-ish body and confidence because of such things, and now I look and I have acne, and I'm podgey... 

I'll get there in the end.

Anyway, WEEK 5 DOWN! I have eliminated grains from my diet, I occasionally eat steamed potatoes, that's it on the cooked food front. Have been eating lots more salad. Will get back on chron-ometer soon. 

Onwards and upwards.

Hi, I've seen people who do the 80 - 10 - 10 and eat the cooked veggies (ie. your potatoes) and though they primarily eat raw, they exterience weight gain. Try this. For 2 weeks, do not anything cooked at all. Eat 100% raw, low fat of course. Stay away from dried fruit, anything juiced. Just simple whole raw ripe fruits and lots and lots of green leafy veggies (at least 9 cups, hopefully blended in a vitamix) You should a) get lean and thinner b) have a great noticeable improvement in your skin. 2 weeks..if you do try it. Let me know about your adventure and your results!!!

yeah i think you might have been underweight to begin with.  use exercise to get strong and tone up but you look really amazing in all your photos.

Just had a look at your photos and you look great! Definitely don't seem overweight & the acne is barely noticeable. Your boyfriend's a lucky guy! Keep doing what you're doing.
