I feel absolutely FANTASTIC! Alert and ready to start the day. It’s Wednesday morning. I kicked off with eating carnivore on Monday evening. My husband and I had a night alone, so we went out for a nice steak dinner. It was wonderful. However, I felt like absolute garbage yesterday!
I woke up fine. Three eggs scrambled in butter before work. I didn’t take anything to work with me because previously on carnivore, I wasn’t hungry throughout the day at all. BIG MISTAKE. I felt like I was starving by the time work was over and my husband, who’s off work at the moment, made me buttered shrimp that was hot and ready to go when I walked in the door. I requested he make a pound, because I was so hungry and figured I’d blow through that much and potentially still want more. Wrong again. I got about half of the shrimp down and just felt so sick and disgusting that I didn’t want any more. Throughout the day I had a headache that got progressively worse and 8 pieces of shrimp in, I don’t know if it was the intensity of the headache or what, but I just couldn’t stand the thought of one more bite. It repulsed me.
The headache continued to get worse and worse the later it got. I laid on the couch because I didn’t feel up to doing much more than that, and felt light headed any time I did get up. Thank God, the headache subsided overnight. I woke up this morning, around 10:45, and it’s been a lovely morning.
Like I mentioned above, last night was bad. I didn’t feel like eating. I felt really nauseous. Considering I put half my dinner back into the fridge, I didn’t eat nearly the amount of calories I should have. My Fitness Pal agreed, and wouldn’t let me complete my diary (see the warning below). To be blunt, I felt absolutely horrible, I’m not that concerned about losing weight that I plan to starve myself or anything like that. I did not consume so little food on purpose. I ate what I could, and stopped when I felt like I was going to throw up. Hopefully Day 2 will be different.
