  1. Well done Rebecca! You’re feeling better and lost weight too. Anout the quiet board, I’ve been checking in every week or so. I want to do another round but haven’t committed yet. I like the anonymity here, I just don’t trust FB or IG to be anonymous.
  2. @MadyVanillaHi there! You're not alone. I re-started on Oct 1 too, didn't even get through Day 1. Sugar is everywhere, as is bread and fast & easy dining options. I second @Rebecca001. It's tough though, to get into the mindset. Good luck, here's to your success.
  3. I had some insomnia last night, for approximately an hour some time long before dawn. I woke at 7:30, got up at 7:50 to walk. Day 5 Thursday June 3, 2021 M1: sweet potato with 1 slice prosciutto and 1 egg all pan fried in ghee, banana, 3 oz pineapple juice, vitamins, Omega 3's M2: BigAss green salad with chicken, avocado, grapes and walnuts Snack: Larabar M3: oven roasted potatoes, onion, carrots, celery, red pepper and cauliflower with bbq steak I was dragging my feet this morning with very low muscle energy. I recognize this feeling - my body is switching from
  4. I woke up with a small headache this morning, thinking it's a bit of carb flu. I had a fairly good sleep, woke at 5 for a bit, then woke again around 6:30. I got up at 7:30 to walk before breakfast. Day 4 Wednesday June 2, 2021 M1: salad - romaine, spinach, iceberg lettuce, cucumber, celery, tomato, grapes, blueberries, chicken, walnuts, PK gg dressing, vitamins, Omega 3's M2: l/o soup from yesterday (chicken & veg), celery, 2 boiled eggs, banana M3: shepherd's pie with ground beef, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, crushed tomatoes, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, ghe
  5. I'm feeling even better today. The sluggishness is gone. My energy is still not great, but without the heaviness I expect my energy can only increase now. My sleep wasn't bad but not good either. I woke at 5am and again at 6:30am and after reading and falling back asleep both times, I woke up at 7:45 but then stayed in bed reading until 9. Day 3 Tuesday June 1, 2021 M1: sweet potato-white potato-carrot root mash fried with ghee, 2 eggs, 1 slice prosciutto, 3 oz pineapple juice M2: soup with onion, celery, carrot, l/o chicken from last night, diced tomatoes Snack: pecans
  6. I'm already feeling better - less sluggish, less headache-y and less feeling of over-stuffed-ness in my belly. On waking up, I felt groggy despite a full sleep, about seven or eight hours. I read for an hour before getting out of bed. Monday May 31, 2021 M1: 1/2 sweet potato, 2 slices of prosciutto, 2 eggs, handful of strawberries M2: spinach salad with avocado, steak, 3 strawberries, balsamic dressing, water with a dash of pineapple juice for flavour M3: chicken thighs topped with mango salsa, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots Exercise: 2km walk before breakfa
  7. Time for a reset. I'm hoping to lose belly fat , mental fog and overall sluggishness. I'm also hoping to overcome emotional eating and eating out of boredom. I feel I've been poisoning myself with too much sugar. Sunday May 30, 2021 M1: fried egg with l/o green beans, potatoes & onion, steak, tomato, vitamins and Omega 3's M2: salad with romaine, avocado, chicken, green grapes, cucumber, strawberries, walnuts, PK gg dressing M3: small repeat of M2 with a few extra strawberries, 3 oz pineapple juice NSV: a successful day food-wise and I didn't snack between meal
  8. Never on their own, only ever baked into cake or muffins. I've been living in a cave all these years maybe? LOL
  9. I have never thought about this, but I guess eating warm bananas is a thing? Thanks for posting, I will give this a try! Congratulations @Semi on your anniversary.
  10. Oh, those cakes look so very good. My hope is to learn to shush my Sugar Dragon on demand, so that I can enjoy things like you've shown here and not be drawn into an ongoing battle. If you can continue to turn down all of the temptations, you should expect to feel Tiger Blood around this time next week. For me it was a game changer. It feels so good that I crave to have it again. I had excellent sleep, woke up early (6:00am) and felt immediately awake and wanted to get things done. I had steady high energy until bedtime (10 or 11pm), then went to bed and fell asleep almost immed
