I’ve joined an online personal trainer who uploads daily videos and meals inspiration accompanied by a few private messages a day to make sure that I’m motivated enough to stay on track. I rebelled this weekend but I am starting the new week with a fresh attitude and the determination to stick to it for two weeks.
I’m sure many of us have dieted before, from taking up the latest eating trend to doing it the old fashioned way of Eat Less, Move More. This detox is something completely different for me… High fat, low carb. That’s no bread, pasta, potatoes or rice. And surprisingly, no fruit or high carb veg like carrots. Now I don’t know about you, but I eat fruit to be healthy! And carrot sticks and hoummous. But this plan doesn’t allow me to do that. Last week I made it to day two before I started to struggle with a constant headache and an ever shortening fuse. I’m usually quite cordial in the office but the snappy Naomi came out to play! I’ve heard of low carb diets before but high fat certainly isn’t a route that I would have chosen on my own. We seem to be taught that fat=bad but I’m slowly learning that ‘good fats’ are a thing, and that they good for you.
I thought that I’d take the opportunity to blog my meals each day or so and give an update on how I find the next two weeks. After the detox is over I move into cycling my carbohydrates but for now, I need to stop thinking about them.
