Weigh in day! I'm out of the teens. Forever. It's been a good week and I am looking forward to another good week. The plan I am on is going well. I am eager to see how my body responds to week 2 of this new plan.
I've received several questions about this plan. Be assured that I am meeting my nutritional requirements and am not starving myself. Feeling hungry and starving yourself are very different. I've been full or stuffed WAY more times in my life than I've been hungry. Stuffing your stomach beyond capacity certainly sounds more dangerous than a few tummy hunger grumbles.
I also do not feel weak, fatigued or tired. I don't feel that I am doing anything extreme or dangerous.
Granted, the point of me doing this is to lose weight but it is also satisfying a curiosity for me. This actually isn't a dieting method that I have not previously believed in. I also didn't know much about it. I've been doing some research and finding out about it and learning more about nutrition. I'm curious what it is going to do and how my body will react during this time and what will happen after. Again, it's not dangerous, I'm fine.
Is this the best way to diet? Who cares. It's healthy and it's working.
