Day 2

Okay. Today is my second carb free day. It sucks. Right now, me body is both craving for more carbs and detoxifying, which means I'm snappish and nursing a nice, throbbing headache. That said, I've had migraines much worse that this. I can, after all, still stare at the computer screen.

That's actually why I picked to cut out on Friday. Day 1's sucky because of cravings, but Days 2 and 3 never go well, so they're best spent away from work. Hopefully I'll feel better by tomorrow already, but I'll have to see.

In the meantime, I'm drinking enough water so my system can flush out toxins faster.

Good news is that I lost 1.7 kg (3lb 12 oz) yesterday. This will mostly be water weight, as that's the first thing a body releases if you change your diet.

Hopefully I'll be getting into fat reserves in this coming week.

Weight: 104 kg (229lb 4.5 oz)
Total Lost: 1.7 kg (3lb 12 oz)
BMI: 35.99

Good luck Misha. Don't forget, you do need some carbs - the brain relies upon the energy you get from them, and you'll need the fuel if you're exercising!

I tried to go without carbs for 1 day and gave up on it..probably not even in 12 hours when I had some cookies at the end of the day. The thing about diets is they don't work because nobody stays on them. Long-term weight loss is about permanent changes, and you don't have to go hungry or even without carbs. The easiest thing to is just add more fiber to your diet, fruit, vegetables, oatmeal or oat bran. Then avoid all fried foods, ice cream, chips, no french fries.or anything high in fat. Avoid alcohol (it has a lot of calories). You won't be hungry or have headaches because you can always eat more fiber of some kind. This is a lot easier than dieting. Anyway, best of luck no matter what you decide.

You go girl! You are doing really well. I hate the withdrawal phase. It is so tough, but you can do it.
