I spent the past couple weeks on TImothy Ferriss’ 4-Hour Body Slow Carb diet. It’s not for me. I’m eating too much fat and protein and I don’t care for the lack of variety. I’m at the point where I don’t want to eat anymore because I’m bored. I also don’t like the cheat days (though I will continue with them in a modified way because I do see the merit).
I find it too hard for me to recover from the cheat days. I eat sugar then for the next few days all I crave is sugar like an insane, sugar-manic vampire bat.
With the juice fast I was taking in too much sugar; with paleo I was too tired from not eating enough carbs; and with slow-carb, I’m uncomfortable and bored. I don’t have a gallbladder anymore so I’m not a fan of all the fat I’ve been eating. My weight loss actually slowed as well because I wasn’t eating in a way that felt normal and comfortable for me. I was forcing myself to eat more food than I would normally consume.
I’m going back to my 1972 Weight Watchers inspired retro eating plan for my Spring Fling project. I’m going back to eating delicious grapefruit, and rye bread; two of my favourite foods.
So I thought I’d bring you up to speed, dear reader. It’s frustrating but you got to find what works even if that feels like starting over all the time.
