Day 4 and here I am!
After a bout of sever irritability a good friend of mine suggested I meditate. So i did. I don't alway take advice from others, in fact it all truth I very rarely take advice from others. The inner rebel in me runs a mile in the opposite direction just to prove I can. Doesn't often work in my favour! Anyway this time I listened and began my day with a beautiful walk in nature and mediated before work. And although I was super tired from my late night last night I felt pretty good all day.
I feel that a lot of the good feeling had to do with my diet. I had a couple of meetings on tonight after a long day of work. So I packed an enormous bag of fruit and veggies and carted along my juicer to work also.
Food for the day was a morning juice of green apples, a couple of radishes and some carrot. - don't think I'll juice radish first thing in the morning again. My stomach felt pretty weird for a while, but eventually settled after eating some bananas.
Snacked on medjool dates (YUM) and perfectly ripe bananas and permissons. You know they're perfectly ripe when they have the black spots on the skin.....
snacked on lots of bananas. even made a banana, celery and lettuce smoothie.
in the afternoon before my first meeting around say 5:30 I made about 700mls orange carrot and celery juice. It was amazing and kept me buzzing and attentive during my meetings until I managed to get a few late night potatoes into me.
Im am most certainly ready for bed now. But still feel alert. Its the thing I am noticing the most from my high fruit high carb diet. I feel more ALIVE. I kid you not! And when I eat enough I don't crave sugar or even the salt cravings are less as I make sure I include lots of greens in my diet. Celery is quite high in natural sodium.
Day 4 and I feel good. My body is going well. A girl at work is often concerned with my sugar intake from all the fruit and bananas and juice. Well the proof is in my belly. Yes, I am bloated after A BIG glass of juice, but it goes down. My digestion is easy. I don't get problems related to food that I used to such as cramps, gas, burping etc. All the things that used to seem so normal, I am barely noticing these things with my diet. I feel good. I feel alive and my body feels good and certainly not putting on weight with all the calories from fruit.
I would call this diet the ALIVE diet. ... Nite for Now XX Claire
