Camille Ho Posted November 6, 2012 Share Posted November 6, 2012 So, I'm on day 16 (day 9, if we count the restart) and I am starting to get really bogged down by all of this. I'm waiting for my Tiger Blood and other amazing results, and they're just not showing up. I mean, there are small improvements: I can go without snacking now (sometimes it's a miss in the evenings, but for the most part I'm good) which is pretty big since I used to eat every 3 hours or so. My energy levels are fairly balanced, but not off the charts high. I've got enough energy to *mostly* get through the day without the afternoon slump, so I think this means I've switched to burning fat for fuel, which is also good. I'm not bloated anymore, which is fantastic. Weight loss remains to be seen, and even though I know it's not the goal, I will be upset if I don't lose anything. I know I'm impatient, only being two weeks into this, but I'm not enjoying it anymore. I love going to the Farmer's market and knowing that we're buying responsibly and eating completely whole foods that are natural, but DAMN I miss sugar and carbs (grains). I'm not kidding, they are ALL I want lately. I know my period is due to start any day now (TMI, sorry), so maybe that has something to do with it, but...I just feel like this is a slog and I am working so hard to "just get through it", which is not what I wanted out of this! I'm kind of disappointed, because I believe in eating this way SO MUCH, but I do not enjoy it. I am forcing vegetables down my throat, and crying when thinking of how to get fats into my meals without just downing an avocado. Maybe I'm in a rut, but...ugh. Just ugh. I think the hardest part is that my husband feels the same way, but I'm trying to keep a happy face and talk about how great this is because I'm the one that convinced him to do this, and I don't want him to go completely off the rails when we're done and just decide that eating this way is too expensive for the lack of results that we're seeing. I really thought this was going to help us in so many ways--my digestive issues, his skin issues, energy, sleep, etc and I'm just not seeing it.
