Entry Six: Love is the way.
Continuing this journey into the unknown, I know I shouldn't be, but I've been measuring myself every day. And today, everything was actually down a bit. Weird. Considering I've overshot the 3K goal pretty much every day. It's probably just water weight though... I'll see what the scale says tomorrow. It'll be a week since my last weigh-in.
Another crap night's sleep. Think I drifted off around 11.30, and woke up at 4! Tossed and turned til nearly 6, then got up. More night sweats. Not as bad as previously, but I felt really chilly when I got up.
The funny thing is that, in spite of eating 3.5K cals yest, I was a little bit hungry going to sleep.
Sleep and food are strongly interlinked for me. If I'm remotely hungry I sleep badly. And every time I sleep badly, I'm ravenous, which usually descends into a binge. Not today however... I ate a lot, but I eat a lot every day now - ha I think that's the reason I didn't binge - I knew I could just have what I wanted, when I wanted. Also tried to do something relaxing for myself instead of banging my head against a wall trying to work - went for acupuncture

I was ravenous today. Before I even left the house this morning I had raspberries, three bananas and a potato. After cycling for a very short time, I started to get hunger pangs. I had to have lunch at 11.30, and I was really craving... fat! I basically had a BS crash, which I haven't had in ages. It was way too many carbs, and not balanced enough for first thing in the day.
I'm going to cut back on the Alfalfa supplement from six pills to two. I didn't realise it stimulates thyroid, and acts as a natural laxative and diuretic. I don't want the effects of what I'm doing to be overly influenced by supplements.
Tired and in bed late.... zzzzzzzz

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
