No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
After really dropping the fat from my diet the past couple weeks (it's been a process) I noticed a few things:
- Initially, a period of further detox. I thought I was done, but not quite. I would get these weird dizzy feelings in my brain just behind my eyes. They would last only for a second and after a about a week they went away. I also put on a few pounds. This seemed sudden and for no apparent reason so I chock it up to being water weight since now it's been purged almost overnight (and after a good sweaty workout). I also felt under the weather for about a week.
-I hadn't done any cardio in quite some time but I did the same routine I had done prior to being on 80/10/10 which was a routine of running up and down my basement stairs 20 times and then doing a strength exercise 3-4 times through. This was very hard to do a month and a half ago and I was dripping sweat last time I tried. This time, it was so much easier and my legs weren't burning, nor was I having to hold the railing for fear of getting dizzy and falling down the stairs. I was not completely wiped out afterwards either.
I'm really liking how I feel on this "natural" diet plan. Even though I don't follow it exclusively (yes, I had a bite of pizza last night and a V-day chocolate I shared with my son). There is a huge difference in my tolerance for stress and more energy late at night when normally I would get cranky and lay on the couch. I would definitely recommend this plan to anyone.
