AL-30 Posted July 21, 2016 Share Posted July 21, 2016 Hi everyone, I'm on day 11 and last night I almost had a break down and ate a bagel. Agh! I'm feeling better in regards to no GI upset and feeling lighter, however I am feeling very sluggish, lightheaded at times, and sometimes I feel like I can't think properly. I know this sounds like I'm not getting enough carbs, but I'm use to eating small portions. I eat until I'm full. I do not like this feeling. My body feels deprived and I feel like I really need to eat some more carbs. I am always hungry a few hours after I eat. I have decided that my hunger is not a craving, I'm actually hungry. Not sure why since I eat a lot until I'm really full. It's also really hard with two small kids at home. I am prepping my meals so much I feel like I'm spending most of my time in my kitchen or thinking about the next meal. I love to cook, but it's getting taxing. I'm even having trouble with brain power to write this. I'm also worried about all the protein I'm eating and my kidneys. I know this is not the Atkins diet, but eating this much protein is not good for kidneys or your gut, especially red meat. I'm trying to drink a lot of water, but not sure if I'm doing damage in the long run. What are your thoughts on this? I know I'm in a rough patch right now, and I'm looking forward to having the benefits of the diet and this so called "tiger blood", but I'm not sure I can make it there. I'm also going camping this weekend and the thought of prepping and trying to figure out all my meals as well as the family's this weekend make me just want to take a nap. Sorry, i know I'm kinda grumpy and really not motivated. I guess I really need some encouragement and proof that what I'm doing is a good thing. Thanks.
