About 2.5 weeks ago I posted about improving my eating habits. I was feeling sluggish, tired, worn out, and probably a little grumpy.
I contacted Namrita for advice on a multi vitamin. Her advice for me was to skip the vitamin, for now, and focus on more fresh fruits and veggies, and to consider some Quinoa and salmon for added protein in my diet. There were a few other recommendations but that was the gist of it.
So, I went shopping. Bananas, apples, broccoli, cauliflower, tangerines, etc. All sorts of raw foods. And I started eating them. Carrots instead of chips for lunch, a tangerine first thing in the morning...well, second after coffee. Banana for a snack. ( on a side note, bananas make me gag, they are mushy and smell stanky, but if it will help me feel better, I'll give it a shot).
2.5 weeks later, I am excited to say that I feel really good. I have more energy. The mid afternoon slump is gone- except when I spend all of Sunday cutting through the forest with a chainsaw.
Another thing I have noticed is that I feel better on the bike. My energy is more sustained and when my body starts to run out of fuel, the sudden bonk that I have gotten used to experiencing, has become more of a mellow and slow onset of hunger. And this is quickly remedied by eating, or avoided by remembering to eat regularly.
My advice, eat more fresh fruits and veggies, simple.
