Thank you for any help and advice in advanced.
Have any of you hit a wall during this diet?
By hitting a wall, I don’t mean on weight loss but on not being able to continue. I’ll explain:
I’m on my second week in the BSG, hoping to make it to week 12.
For the past few days I’m finding eathing the food I have made for this diet more and more of a chore. I’m finding more and more difficult to eat it. For example, last night we had a thai curry with cauliflower rice. I just couldn’t do it… I was shuddering with every bite and finally I couldn’t physically get it past my lips. The more I ate the more nauseous I felt. Finally I pushed myself to eat just the chicken, because I was hungry, but the nausea wouldn’t let me eat the rest of the food… I really struggled after that to keep the food in, I was so nauseous.
I have not deviated from the diet other than to have a bit of cheese or a half a teaspoon of peanut butter, to stave off the hunger cramps between meals, but my sugar level has now gone from 6.1 mmol/L (110 mg/dl) last sunday, to 6.9 mmol/L (125 mg/dL) today (4 days later). Unfortunately I don’t have data of BS at the start of the diet.
Today I’m really headachey, even though I’ve kept my water consumption, and the thought of eating another piece of lettuce just makes me shudder and my stomach roil. Not sure how to get out of this funk, or if I just need to ride it through and it will get better, like marathon runners.
Please, any help, advise or just sympathetic shoulder would be greatly appreciated.
