Stop doing it and see the difference!
I had guests this week and a bit of a family party. It was fun, kept me busy so I missed a day of running. I was disciplined at the party and avoided the carbs.
But the day after leftovers ………
I succumbed to a large slice of chocolate cake and some other stuff. Crusty white baguette mmmm. Afterwards I felt too bloated and sluggish to go for a run. Then the next day I missed a run as I was busy.
Today I made it out and did a nice 5 Mile walk/run at my HR. When I got back I experienced ‘runger’ despite having a big lunch an hour before going out. I haven’t had that for ages. I knew that I hadn’t been running anaerobic ally so I can only guess that I’d upset my newly fat adapted metabolism. I ate (no carbs) then fell into the sleep of the dead on the sofa. I’d left all that behind when I started doing MAF/ low carb.
It just goes to show how well this MAF thing works for me😊
This expereince just re enforces for me that I really don’t want to eat lots of cake, even if it does have chocolate butter cream frosting😋 I’d rather feel energised.
It has been so unexpected for me that changing my diet would make me feel better. I have experimented with my diet before, vegetarian, vegan, low fat, calorie counting, intermittent fasting, But this is the first time I have tried something and found that I don’t feel hungry, I feel better and I’m losing a little weight. ( I lost weight on the vegan diet until I worked out how to make cakes without eggs and butter!)
Have you ever tried to give up sugar and four based products?
if so did it work for you and how long did/have you maintained it?
