And the ah-ha moment arrived when I realized I HAD been on the right track … I just needed to combine them and do the program with all that I had learned … together! **lightbulb**
I am on the Homeopathic NutrihCG program … a kit with the homeopathic HCG Plus drops, dynamic greens powder, detox supplements, thryroid support, and ketone strips to track how my body is doing within so that it maintains an alkaline environment. In addition to that I see my doc weekly for a bio impedance analysis which is an accurate assessment as to how much fat is lost (to make sure it’s not muscle that I am losing) … and among other things that are fascinating to the docs, the test shows the balance of water in my body … aiming for an even amount of hydration IN my cells as well as outside my cells … the task is to get the numbers as close to 50%/50% as possible … yayyyyy!
I’ve had several instances where I just wanted to scream … and I rebelled by not drinking water … “coffee, tea, or me?” … or water … those are my options … and the next day, I was immediately rewarded with an increase of a number on the digital scale … ahhhhh that’s how that affects me when I don’t drink water!
It’s not always been easy … 500 calories in a day takes some work to figure out how to best organize them … I found that I enjoy a meal at mid day … I mean actually eating food … so I consume the most calories between 11 and 2 … and my liquid meals in the morning and maybe again in the evening … are usually 100 calories give or take a few … so I feel satisfied when I eat once a day … and drink my other meals as my body responds with hunger pangs … which has been rare … I now drink my protein and greens between 9 or 10 in the mornings … that’s when my body asks for nourishment … and rarely in the evenings …
One evening when I was working until after 10pm … just before going to bed, I did have hunger pains … so I did have a protein drink at that time … what is new is that I am working with my body and am learning just how it feels when it’s ready for refueling … funny thing that I noticed … I no longer eat something just because it’s a particular time on a clock … or out of boredom anymore … and although it’s very restrictive and ONLY 500 calories … LOL … I am not feeling hungry in between … the body is being retrained to fuel itself from stored fat while normalizing the metabolism … it’s all very fascinating to experience this …
Some might react in shock … “WHAT??? ONLY 500 calories a dayyyyyy????”
**chuckling** … it is funny really … I may have reacted in the same way just a short while ago … knowing that this is just not “right” … and now that I am experiencing how that feels … I am amazed at the clarity in my mind … no muddled thoughts, remembering more, being “on” with such a precision … totally freakin’ awesome to experience this … truly how does it get better than this???
OH I do have my days where I dream of dairy … good cake … or something of the sugar variety … I have a soft spot in my heart for gummy candy … and once I acknowledge it … even when presented with some … it is an easy choice to say ‘no thank you’ … and stay on plan … I am unsure what shift has happened in my being … 49 years with a huge lack of will power … and now it is suddenly strong … I have no idea what the difference is … I am just grateful.
My suggestion to you??? Keep going … keep searching … continue to follow your knowing … you are right on track … and it is perfect for wherever you are in this moment … just keep seeking … and you will find it.
ohhhh ... day 27 and I've released 19 pounds
