Day 202

It never ceases to amaze me how my body responds to what I am eating. Not just in terms of losing or putting on weight but also in terms of how I feel and my body's ability to eliminate waste.

Last week and the week before I ate more carbs than I've been getting over the past month and I noticed that I began to feel bloated, tired and became constipated immediately. As soon as I eliminated the carbs and began eating fresh unprocessed foods, the feeling of being bloated began to dissipate, I began to feel more energetic and got a regular bowel movement again, which I'm sure you will agree is a wonderful thing. This is not the first time I have noticed this, so it completely amazes me each time I return to eating things that I know will make me feel comatosed and constipated. The same principle that keeps me from sticking my hand in fire clearly does not work here.

  1. You are becoming so intune to your body. It's all about loving yourself enough to give your body the nutrients it needs. I try to do the 3 question rule. 1. Am I hungry enough to eat? 2. Will the food I am considering eating nourish my deserving body? 3. How will I feel physically, mentally and emotionally after I eat it?
    I am really enjoying your journey of discovery. How about some photos of how you are going so far?

  2. Thanks for showing me the light. I took a food diary of what I ate today and couldn't believe all of the carbs I was taking in. No wonder I am such a tank.
