Krisz Posted October 28, 2014 Share Posted October 28, 2014 Hi all, I'm at the end of day 22. Have done well on the programme, I think. Have managed to stick to 3 meals/day, following template recommendations, on most days. There have been a maybe half-a-dozen days where I had a bit of extra fruit in the evening or during the day (e.g. papaya, mango or berries - about 1/2 cup). And perhaps my portions are too large.. but they always fit on the plate and I can keep going until the next meal without ever being starving/ravenous. Biggest positives for me thus far - no afternoon dips, love that I'm not a slave to food anymore (i.e. eating only 3x per day rocks!), steady mood & energy levels & yes, better sleep :-) Felt slimmer first couple of weeks too. My troubleshooting now is that I feel quite bloated from yesterday and now today & lost my appetite/ enthusiasm for food over the last few days... a bit over meat (I'm sure I'm not the first to say this).. but on the other-hand, enjoying eggs a bit more. Is it normal to have bloating at this stage of the game? What are generally the most common culprits? I feel like I'm eating more salt .. because of seasoning of meat/eggs etc.. so I'm also balancing with lots of water (about 4-5L/day) - I'm 5'9''/ 190+ lbs... and its hot and I'm active with the kids .. so I don't feel that this is too much... plus I'm thirsty!! like a lot more than usual. I'm also breastfeeding my 8month old girl - who still nurses 4 times a day and at least once a night... but shes been ill so more nursing and less sleeping last 3-4days. also less exercise/ walking than usual I would be grateful for any advice/ ideas/ encouragement / reassurance that tummy will feel better !
