Totally agree that VLC primal can help folks heal from unhealthy eating habits. *raises hand joyfully!* The key word is heal. In all healing, there are setbacks. This was a setback, not a return to your old ways.
Be good to yourself! Vent for sure, it's healthy. But know you can *heal* from this with time and determination and a deep love for your own health.
I sound like a kook, but I don't care. It's a long journey for some of us and we need to be reminded to love ourselves a little bit.
All you hunky 2% body fat young dudes feel free to roll your eyes at me...but maybe take your shirt off first!
Hi Lawyerchick. Moving on is the most important part - don't forget that you might be hungrier than usual for the next 48 hours or so, and plan plenty of great eats that fit with your own specific plan. My go-to at times like that involves extra coconut oil and some bacon!!
"Unhealthy relationship with food" is far too harsh. What if it's cortisol from non-Grok stress?
Lawyerchick, if you're on 30 g carb, that's a HUGE improvement over the constant hard-candy snacking!
I'm thinking many you need an occasional carb day? 30 g is hard to sustain day after day after day after day. Just call it a "carb refeed" and start again tomorrow.
I've been slipping very badly myself, and have the bloat to prove it. And I'm not on VLC; I'm trying to stick to about 80 g carbs. I have to start again tomorrow too...
Some days I am just hungrier than others. And some days I am not. It sort of seems to work itself out. I try not to eat non-Primal, but it happens. There is the 80/20 rule. I strive for 100 but know I sometimes fall short. And when I do, I just decided that I have to accept the consequences, bloat and all, and not bitch about it. (not saying you are, I am talking about myself) I just have to accept it and move on. I am learning that sometimes it just isnt worth it.
The first time I actually carbed it up, was going out to eat after months of being a good girl, and weight loss slowing down, and after that episode, I actually lost weight. :cool:
awww thanks for the support guys! <3
[QUOTE=Sabine;958580]Hang in there, Lawyerchick. We all have these days. Just be careful with yourself tomorrow, so that it ends today. I would suggest a large protein and fat meal to start with, so you stop any rollercoastering in its tracks.[/QUOTE]
