This post may get a little gross… just saying… because I am going to talk a little about bowel movements! Yay! Everyone’s favorite subject, right? No? Everyone ran away didn’t they? Oh well.
So in June, my diet was a little all over the place. I was definitely eating a lot of meat with almost every meal… and though I stayed pretty close to the calorie range I was supposed to be in (though sometimes a little bit too low), I wasn’t losing much weight. Then I started reading this Crazy Sexy Diet and discovered that animal proteins and dairy products can actually stick to your intestines! Gross. You can have anywhere from 6 to 10 pounds of ickiness in your body that isn’t even fat! So I have decided to start incorporating a crap ton of vegetables into my diet to the point I am only trying to have meat a few times a week and only once a day. Doing this for only a few days so far has helped a lot… I am a lot more regular in my bowel movements and I feel a lot lighter on my feet! I have also been doing a lot better with drinking water. It helps when I just have a large bottle of water that I bring with me so I can really gauge how many ounces I have been drinking. So far I have gotten myself up to about 75 ounces of water, which feels great except I always have to pee! Good lord.
If you are not passing a turd at least once a day, you may want to revamp your diet. Think of all that waste that is building up in your intestines right now! I was starting to go only every other day and it was driving me absolutely bonkers. I was even eating a lot of fiber so I had no idea why this was happening to me… but as of right now, it just seems like it was too much animal products just clogging up the system! Hopefully I am getting back on track… and we will see what sort of weight loss I have next Monday!
Told yah… it was a little bit gross! But I am feeling positive that fruits and vegetables will help me kick some serious butt this July! Unfortunately I need to get back into exercising and doing my 30 Day Shred. The sunburn is finally starting to go down, and I was tempted to do it today but I am going haying first… and that is quite the work out! So I am going to do that and then see how tired I am… if I can manage a quick work out after that, I will try it. If not, I am not going to push myself too hard seeing as I haven’t exercised for a few days now! Ooops.
So how many servings of fruits and vegetables do you have a day?!
Hope everyone has a great Hump Day!
