Default Phase 1 GO!

So last week I decided it's a new year and i've had it and i'm starting over again. Tomorrow marks one week of phase 1. It's been quite successful so far. Though the difference from my last attempt seems odd. Last time I really grooved that whole munching all day on good things bit. This time I have no appetite or desire to eat. I don't enjoy it, my portions seem less. I am taking care to eat enough that i'm not going unhealthily in the other direction. But the level of "i don't care" i've been having about food feels odd.

Also, i've had the runs for several days? Is this a symptom of the SB flu, or a coincidence?

Hello! It's nice to meet you.

I also had the not really hungry feeling on phase 1, I'm thinking it started around day 5 for me. I struggled with constipation though, and have always assumed that was why I didn't feel like eating.

I hope you'll be feeling great soon!

Welcome! I don't remember much about my P1. Your lack of hunger could have something to do with SBD flu. Keep checking in and let us know.

Best wishes!

I also am on my second Phase 2 and haven't experienced hunger and have had some 'intestinal' difficulties. I think perhaps it's just a symptom of making a food switch so abruptly. I've been taking pysillum and chia seeds and that has been helping. I'm thankful for the lack of hunger, so won't question it! You've had excellent results, congratulations.

Mistypaw! And congratulations for doing so well on your first week of Phase 1!
Strickly speaking for myself, I'd be thrilled not to have an appetite and would enjoy that feeling while it lasts.

As for your other "problem", it may be because you are drinking more water and losing weight, but I'm not sure. As long you don't have a tummy ache or are feeling ill, it will probably clear up soon.

Congrats on week 1 down. Tomorrow marks 1 week down for me as well. I have the opposite problem though, constipation. Maybe eat more protein?

Today is day 4 for me, and I have a wicked headache. I started a 30 day cleanse 9 days ago, so I can't really comment on the intestinal issue. Is it normal to feel like I'm in a grumpy, hazy fog?

Jumpin - ABSOLUTELY normal! I spent the first 7 days feeling that way - this week has been a huge turn around.

MistyPaw - the first time I did Phase I I had the same experience with lack of hunger. It IS disturbing - just feels wrong somehow. But given that I'm hungry ALL THE TIME this go-round, I would just count it as a blessing.

How weird. I am on Day 10 of Phase 1 and have the same problem! I find that I dont really get hungry. Unfortunately I think some of it is because Ive made some not-so-good food and the thought of eating it makes me cringe. I need to make some good stuff! I do enjoy the desserts though!

Thank you for your encouragement everyone! It's going well. I went off for one meal for my husband's birthday dinner, and I have to say... after not having carbs and sugars for a week... it knocks you over the head hard. I passed out! Going right back on plan though, and honestly after that experience, I have no desire to leave it!
