- Better Sleep
- Energy Increase
- Better Digestion
- No More Sugar Cravings
There is one peculiar thing happening with me that has me scratching my head. It's not a problem so much as something to definitely keep an eye on, and it's this:
- Loss of Appetite
Breakfast isn't a problem. I feel peckish when I wake up in the morning, and I want to eat when my fasting period ends. But, despite needing the calories, I often find myself struggling to eat my second meal of the day, let alone my third. I'm often just not hungry, and, in an unusual turn of events, I don't particularly want to eat.
Oh, don't worry. I eat. I make myself eat. I'm all too aware of the damage severe caloric restriction has done to me, and I'm not willing to sacrifice my health, or my strength. Even more, I'm eating more calories now than before. I've upped my intake to roughly two thousand calories a day (though I need to do a quick calorie count this week to make sure that I am still eating enough. It's a lot of food, and I'm still not sure what, exactly that is supposed to look like).
Before anyone freaks out, this isn't the same as the disordered eating I had before. I'm not denying myself food when I'm hungry. I'm just... not hungry. I don't feel like eating beyond breakfast.
So, there's that. Happily, though, things seem to be going well. I'm feeling well, and healthy. I haven't had to stop martial arts training or weightlifting at all because I don't have the energy for it. So far, it's been going really well.
Right, I have videos to edit, a couple of books to write and other things that need doing today. Have yourselves a lovely Monday.
