Yes, this weekend it was an total abandon of dieting. I even made cookies. They were very yummy. Shortbread type with lots of black sesame seeds.
This week will be a continuation of renewed attempts then. I still have not lost any weight - so, obviously I am not doing the right things. Maybe I am at the end of the dynamic phase of weight loss.
Before I started with this blog, I did not count calories, just cut out very starchy foods, and sugars, and lost 2kg.
I think I am going to try a higher fat/lower carb/med protein approach.
My personal biochemist (my dad) tells me adults need very little protein, children need more per body mass because they are still growing. I will take that into consideration.
My cravings have been better the last two days. I got my 'period cravings' quite late (during menstruation, unlike the usual pre-period chocolate cravings) and I did not crave chocolate - but I did crave something sweet. Hence the sesame cookies. I tried making the damage as little as possible, by substituting white sugar with brown sugar and molasses, used butter (not margarine) - still used white flour....
Yesterday, I had my fourth enema. This morning I had the most beautiful poo just after I got up from bed. I did oilpulling just after the coffee enema, and the oil became totally emulsified, and very thick. Like soap. I was thinking that could be due to the stimulatory effect the coffee has on the gall bladder, because bile emulsifies fats. And that affected my oil pulling. This morning I did not do an enema, and the oil stayed much more oily. I pulled the same amount of oil, for the same amount of time.
I thought that to be interesting.
I have read some places ppl do not 'believe' in calorie counting. I do not understand how one can loose weight without restricting food. Sure, detoxifying the liver may help your body to rid of fat which might have stored toxins, but ultimately, the goal is to shrink the fat organ, and for that to happen, the fat organ has to become the source of energy. And since food is the source of choice for energy, food intake has to be less than usual in order for the body to resort to an alternative source of energy - the fat organ.
Having said that, I once met a woman who had apparently lost an huge amount of weight, just by cutting out salt from her diet.
So many fat cells, so many ways to make them shrink.
I will put my ticker back, once it has ticked.
