Out of necessity, I decided to do a month of zero overt fats on the 80/10/10 lifestyle. Too many bodily pains happening after the cruise and a couple weeks of high fat eating.
I felt good about the decision, and so far the first half of March I’ve felt very good. Some headaches and hormonal issues initially.
I had 2 “cheat days” where I went back to cooked food, mainly vegetarian/vegan, but I feel fine about that. In fact, I have a lot of hope that I could eat like this forever… mainly 80/10/10, with low fats, and then an occasional cheat day when some occasion comes up.
My desire to exercise has increased, and my stamina has increased. This week I did Zumba dancing for 60 minutes and took a 1.7 mile walk in the drizzling rain.
I can see myself continuing on for several months like this, perhaps adding in one avocado per week or so.
I don’t want to rush the detoxing, since it can be a bit painful at times. I think slow and steady is a good idea for me.
My daily food logs are posted at http://www.rawjenni.wordpress.com for those curious about what an 80/10/10’er eats every day.
