The past two weeks have been pretty interesting. Getting the body to switch fuel can be a bit challenging on the energy front. The body goes thru a lot of changes being deprived of carbs.
We are loving the food and the recipes are fantastic. This diet is flexing my raw food making muscles, even though some of the recipes are cooked, I’m just loving being able to make food again!
I’m up really early for work. My energy is pretty good in the morning however, the afternoon is a struggle. I experience different levels of tiredness, feeling dizzy, and have various levels of headaches from time to time. I’ve been spending my time making food and relaxing. I haven’t been able to write for a couple of weeks, but I’m finally feeling a little extra energy. I try to remember to take enzymes because of the increase in fat intake has made my digestive system a little off and tummy upset.
It’s our second fasting day. I order green juices and a kale salad for breaking the fast later in the day. In addition to the veggie juices, we also enjoy Super Woman Coffee and tea during the day. I find it a lot more difficult fasting for one day a week than the whole week we did the juice cleanse. Last week I kept looking at the time to see when I was going to be our next drink and found it difficult to wait for our salad. Today hasn’t been as bad as last week, but I’m looking forward to 4:00 pm to have our salad!
Last Saturday our energy was really low after fasting, so I’m thinking at least for now not to plan on a big day for tomorrow, Saturday.
Even though some of the symptoms of going keto are uncomfortable, it’s like a science experiment and a day to day what will happen next! It’s kind of exciting!
Happy Fooding! 😀
