I just finished week one, 100% compliant with the rules. I gotta say, I loved it! For context, you should know that I had kinda hit the bottom of the barrel on overeating and drinking after about a month of traveling this summer. My weight was up, my energy was down, I was having sinus issues, achey knees, bags under my eyes. I am a distance cyclist and was struggling to keep up my pace. So because I felt so terrible, I was ALL IN. Another thing that helped was that I love to cook. I bought both editions of Well Fed, and tried everything. YUM! So I made a point to stock up on organic fruits and vegetables, I bought about 80 pounds of grass fed meat from US Wellness, and got pantry items in stock so I was set up to succeed. My treats were Kombucha, decaf coffee after dinner with steamed full fat canned coconut milk, and coconut water instead of sports drinks on my bike rides. Here are the changes I am experiencing AFTER 7 DAYS: The aches are gone from my knees and I can breath more easily during heavy exertion on the bike Sinus issues are about 75% resolved Swollen belly is flat again Bags under my eyes are gone, redness is gone Mental exhaustion and brain fog gone I can stay awake after dinner! I am still having trouble sleeping. And I still lack my normal energy while cycling. I have faith that those will resolve soon. One of my favorite quotes so far was from one of the daily email: 99% commitment DOES NOT EQUAL 99% success. Special thanks to David Humphreys who helped straighten out the problem I had getting the emails. They are so helpful.
