Hi Wildbear. Yes, I got that energised feeling this morning just walking out of the supermarket. I suddenly got the feeling that I could just take off running for the fun of it. No, I didn't, because I would have been running into people, but I suddenly knew the energy was there if I wanted it.
I've found that understanding why certain foods are bad for me makes it a lot easier to make choices about what I will eat. I've done plenty of low carb, but I assumed that was purely about weight and didn't really understand the nutrition and deficiency issues that are tied up with it. Now I get it and things like cheese that I would have thought would tempt me (dairy gives me major acne) just don't any more. I'm happy to find alternative favourites - like coconut!
