Still have plenty of energy on Day four of 1,000 calories a day. I had a sandwich for lunch and a banana for a snack. I ate Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower for dinner then berries with whipped cream for dessert. I was able to workout on the exercise bike today- increasing resistance every three minutes for 30, then decreasing every minute until I was back down to resistance of one for a total of 40 minutes.
I’m glad tomorrow is the last day because this is a pretty restrictive diet and I really just want to have a big meal. I’ve been eating a lot more vegetables which is awesome for several reasons: more fiber, more energy, and less hungry overall. This week I’ve had many temptations, but I’ve stayed on point with my goal. I’ve noticed that I’ve been less tired and in a better mood. Could be a number of reasons for that. There are so many moving parts when it comes to health, nutrition, mood, etc. My gastrointestinal issues are been SO much better. I don’t feel the pain and uneasiness like I normally do. I may have to adopt this diet in small stretches to alleviate some of my digestive issues in the future. It will take several trials to see if this actually helps me feel better or if it is a coincidence. Only time will tell! 🤞🏼
