Default Day 5

Oh my goodness I'm tired! It's day 5 for me on phase 1. I've done pretty good so far, but I am totally exhausted and my brain is kinda fuzzy LOL I went to the store and got some vitamins (Geritol believe it or not! It's supposed to be really good for you) to see if that will help. Any other suggestions? How long can I expect it to take for this to pass?

I'll be so glad when I get to phase 2 LOL

Phase one has a tendancy to make people feel very run down and tired lore. It's because carbs are supposed to be your main source of energy, and although you are still getting carbs from veggies, it's not nearly as much as your body is used to. It will go away once you start to introduce grains and fruits in phase two.

Until then, i have no idea what helps. I find drinking alot of water and excercising makes me feel more energetic.

Best of luck!

Try adding legumes and dairy to your day. That may help. Remember the food list WAS revised. If you are following just the book's list, you are missing good carbs. A multi-vitamin is a good idea but will take a while to work.
