So I didn't end up doing a 5th day review, because I was out of town. I instead did low glycemic choices for the day, which is what the program is anyway. I only ended up losing 2 pounds doing the reset, and am honestly very disappointed in my results. I hate to compare myself to others, however, most of the group doing this lost up to 5% of their body weight. I lost 2%.
Why did I only lose 2? I have no idea. On Thursday I got so sick and light headed. I really think that it may have something to do with the fact that it just was not enough food for my body. I may have been getting the nutrition, but as far as calories go, I really don't think I was getting enough.
This week I have been working on eating every 2-3 hours and making healthy choices. I did have a moment where I may have had 1 to many pieces of bread, but other then that I feel like I have do VERY well. I'm hoping to catch onto the grasp of doing a 80% good 20% whatever I want balance. It will definitely take some work on my part because I tend to lean to far to one side. Either I'm eating 100% good or 100% bad. I need to find that balance and know that it is okay to not eat perfect all the time.
Right now I'm in the transition phase. I usually have a shake for breakfast and leftovers from the night before for lunch. My snacks are usually of the fruit area.
I've been feeling pretty good on this, the only problem I have been having is every. single. afternoon I have been getting a headache. I know it's not a caffeine headache because i have been off of that for a couple of weeks now, but it is sure annoying! Any ideas?
