Hi, today is my 4th day on Atkins. I feel less withdrawal symptoms than the days before, no headache in the morning, no nausea, less tired, just my stomach hasn?t got use to the diet.
First of all I woke up an hour late and got late to work. I didn?t feel like having eggs for breakfast so I ate a slice of cheese and of turkey breast.
The morning was Ok; I had a healthy lunch (veggies and chicken). After that and the rest of the day I started feeling grouchy and with lots of anxiety, I couldn?t stay in a place and was craving SOOO much for sweets and all of the prohibited in Atkins. Right after work I almost went and buy a cake and ice cream but I contained myself and drag to the gym thinking this would make me better. I was only able to do 20 minutes of bicycle and that was it! I couldn?t breathe very well after that, so I decided to go home. Then I made a stop in a grocery store to buy celery ,I think is high in fever and I haven?t been so good of my stomach since this diet, so I thought it might help. And in the grocery store, you know how all the BAD things pop to your eyes? I manage to get out of there with celery and the only thing bad is I got a 200 gram bag of PEANUTS. It say in the bag to have only 2 carbs witch 2 of them were fiber, so I thought ok, that is Cero Net Carb. Then got home and ate the whole bag in one sitting. I feel is going to be so difficult to continue the diet if I continue like this and can get worst. After that is like if someone put me in a race to eat I was hungry and wanted more, so I ate more veggies, chicken, cream , cheese, and even I fixed myself some shrimp with butter. That?s it for the day, but I must tell you, I didn?t had a headache today till after I ate all that.
I am not sure how many carbs I had for today, maybe 20, maybe 30? Because of the cheese? And of course all that must be lots of calories!
The good think is even I ate more of what I am allowed I didn?t got anything sweet and not in the list of allowed food, except the peanuts that I read you have to get them only in the third week, not the first !!
I?m so weak!!! I was even afraid of writing this post.
Thanks for reading, hope tomorrow I wake up with a better control of myself.
