I’ve been on this diet for about a week and a half. It is Tim Ferriss’ “Slow Carb Diet”. It is a lot of protein and a low amount of carbs. In fact, with the exception of Saturday the only carbs I eat are beans. Sugar and carbs are one of the most addictive things we eat and when you don’t eat them you get withdrawal symptoms.
I’m having withdrawal symptoms. I have felt them coming on for a couple of days but today I’m very dizzy, light-headed, irritable, and antsy. It makes me just want to eat a piece of bread. I do have the cravings but I’m fairly good at dealing with cravings. I do not like feeling this way. If I can make it through this week and next then I’ll probably be ok after that. In the past, once I got through week three I did really good. In fact, after a few weeks eating carbs on binge day makes me feel sick.
I never mentioned this on Sunday but since I’m on the subject of binge day on my “Slow Carb Diet” I did not gain any weight on binge day this week. I’ve been losing weight slowly but I think it was mostly due to the fact that I ate a can of beans that had sugar in the ingredients. This is why it is so important to read the labels on your food. They’ll put sugar in nearly anything.
On a shameless note, I’m looking for funding for my Kindle book project. Please take a look at my IndieGoGo Campaign and share with your friends!
