Week 1 Day 5:
Last night I woke TWICE ravenous with hunger. I ended up eating a hotdog. So frickin hungry. It's like hunger on steroids. Nothing I ever feel during the day. I feel like I'm going stark raving mad.
This morning I had breakfast, typed it into FitDay and had much too low carbs again. So I added a cup and a half of green beans. I have simply GOT to start eating carbs in the morning so I don't have them at dinner. I need to save my protein and fat for dinner so I can sleep through the night. Whew.
I've been to three stores near my home looking for produce, trying to avoid the longer hike to the incredible health food store, but I keep striking out. Nothing organic, and most of the veggies too sweet for me. I'm going to make a concerted effort to get some decent vegetables today so I don't get caught with my pants down yet again.
I didn't realize how incredibly low carb I've been eating on GAPS for the past year and a half. I knew I should be following their protocol and eating more veggies, but I never thought to count my carbs or figure out how many I want to eat till now. My body doesn't seem to like them. They make me tired and hungry. All I want is protein and fat.
I'm going to give veggies the good ole college try, though.
It's 8:20a and I'm already wanting a nap. Post carb coma...sigh.
It's 10:30a. I ended up crashing for two hours. I'm starting to think I'm jumping up to too many carbs too soon. I'm not used to eating 50g of carbs a day. More like 15 to 25g. And then to eat green beans, which are so sweet...I think I just had a sugar crash. My poor body isn't used to it.
So I'm going to eat less carbs, and stick to dark green and totally not sweet ones for now.
