So we are on week two of this lovely change of diet scenery and I'm doing really well. I'm not craving anything sweet that the odd banana can't fix. But I am admittedly getting tired a little more maybe, but that's either because its freezing or because I'm bored of eating the same food so I'm eating less.
I've realised that I'm still feeling the comfort of being able to just eat bread whenever I wanted to which would give me a really good carb boost but I can't do that any more and I've not found a replacement food that is helping me. So yes I've been getting tired and in all honestly a lot more hungry! But I'm ignoring it sometimes which is not good. I was so tired yesterday that I had a potato!!! Shock Horror! Now Paleo seems to be hazy over the potato thing as a couple of years ago it was a no no but now some people do eat some, so I'm not sure. But it did help me get an energy boost for a while in all honestly and its not a grain so I'm letting it slide.
I'm not having any caffeine at all now as I'm about to embark on a Liver cleanse along with a friend which sounded like the net step for me so I figured why not. Now, I have to be VERY clean eating for this but I can have potatoes and brown rice if I need it as it doesn't produce sugar in your gut, so if I'm feeling pants I know I can eat these carbs if I need to to help me feel better, Even if this is really a not part of my Paleo diet, but I need to live my life too so I will see have to see how I feel and play it my ear. I'm interested as to how this is going to work and how I'm going to feel as I've never done this kind of thing before. I have had a major detox before but not with things pushing the crap out of me, possibly literally! Well we shall see.
But with all this happening I've decided this week is the week where I dust off my juicer that I love so much and get making some scrummy green juices and the odd smoothy and I've got my coconut water and almond milk at the ready for all kinds of filling drinks that I can enjoy. Not sure why its taken me this long to get my finger out with these things but I guess when you are just so used to working away, it can be easy to forget to look after yourself as much as you need to too.
Hoping that you are all still off the wagon or at least doing what you need or want to, to feel better about you.
