Hi everyone just wanted to say I am starting the BSD on Monday as I have around 20kgs to lose and just so fed up with a little bit of weight loss, putting it back on x 1000 and just generally feeling like crap. Not had a diabetes diagnosis yet but my BM’s suggest I’m in the pre-diabetic range and we have a family history of Type 2 diabetes so trying to head it off before it becomes an issue.
My question is this, I am very active – my job means I am standing all day (nurse) and I walk on average 15000 steps a day. I used to do lots of intense exercise but that has tailed off in recent years. Can anyone here tell me how they feel on the 800 calories? I expect the first 2 weeks to be a bit of a shock to a carb addicted body but I would really like to get back to running and lifting weights again by the end of the 8 weeks. Does that seem realistic?
Any advice for a newbie who is very nervous about being a failure would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
