Jeanne and I will be doing a weekly check-in from now on. Below is a quick ‘how we’ve been’ so far …
I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how easy it’s been to eat carbs – they’re everywhere! Maybe that’s why so many people are hooked on them. Three things that have come up so far are the following: I have a bigger appetite, I’m thirsty more often and I’m sneezing more. Whether or not these things are because of my high carb diet remains to be seen, but hey they’re there so I thought I’d share them. What do I miss the most? Seattle Coffee Co’s muesli cup with real Greek yoghurt, local honey and the best muesli I’ve ever had.
I’m doing well so far on the high fat/protein diet! It’s been easy enough to eat within the parameters, even when dining out, although I will admit that for the first few days I did feel somewhat restricted and I still miss being able to enjoy cupcakes and rusks! Energy-wise I feel a little tired (weak) but this could be due to needing more salt in my diet as it has a natriuretic effect.
