- not hungry! Not obsessed. Not stuffed. Im just full, feeling well and can get on with other stuff than worrying about my next snack
- brain fog is gone! Im so calm and think clearly. Im more patient.. as im not hangry or at the mercy of fluctuating blood sugar
- im happier as im taking control of my life, that negative self talk is replaced with pride and hopefulness
- confidence already improved - i know im not harming my teeth - my skin clears, my gut is happy - my anaemia is improving - my period is a breeze (i was younger then, 24, Im 28 now but a diet heavy in soy messed my period and gave me PMS.) I really think low carb improves my hormones and mood.
I just have more energy and feel less achey.. my joints pain settles down.
Agree completely about being able to get on without constantly snuffling for the next snack.
Also my mood stabilises and improves hugely - I now really notice when I eat carbs, especially refined ones, that I get a big mood dip a couple of hours later, which I suspect coincides with the blood sugar crash.
I’ve also recently started running and read an estimate that for every 10lbs lost, your speed increases automatically by around 20 seconds per mile, which would be great as I’m possibly the slowest slow thing ever.
I've suffered for YEARS with the after effects of a severely frozen shoulder (I had less than 10% movement in my arm at its worst point and agonising pain!). Whilst the shoulder has now (after lengthy physio and an operation to reduce the calcification) 'defrosted' I have suffered acute pain in my neck, shoulder and shoulder blade muscle area for several years. I have NO idea how or why, but for the past week I've had no pain at all...first time in years...I almost want to cry with the relief!
Other changes: I'm usually an excessive trumper (😳)...no more! It's as if my insides have finally righted themselves 😂
Migraines...gone from one or two a week, to not even a headache!
Tummy not bloated and a general feeling of being so much happier (I'm in my 50s and have a stressful job, long hours, which can make me a bit grumpy 🤷♀️)
Not too shabby a change then, overall, in two weeks!
