My time seems to never slow down!
I think last time I emailed you I said I was trying more starchy carbs in the morning, but I think those are hurting me more, by making me crave more carbs….so I’m still trying to find a happy medium when it comes to carbs and providing energy.
The past week I have been back to feeling pretty tired during the early mornings and early evening hours …
Dear Feeling Pretty Tired,
PLEASE keep a food and beverage journal for at least the next 3 days. Then send it to me so I can have a peak …
* I am wondering if you are eating more sweets, sweetie? From Halloween onward we tend to slip in a little and a lot of sweets. These raise us up and drop us flat and craving more and feeling tired.
* I am wondering if you are drinking enough water – at least 8 glasses a day starting with 1ST thing in the morning.
* I am wondering what your blood type is? If you are type “O”, the most common blood type, then I recommend that you get off of all wheat and dairy and add more meal into your diet.
Tired in the morning points to allergies – the most common allergy triggers are wheat and dairy. You can easily substitute Ezekiel bread and ezekiel or buckwheat cereal (for the wheat) and Almond milk, goat cheese and yogurt (for the cow dairy). Try this for a week and see how you feel.
Tired in the early evening points to Toxin Overload. Drinking more water, with a squeeze of lemon, can help clear out your system enough to notice is your are feeling better and need to do more … (and you probably will, but after the holidays.)
Final note (until I hear from you!) Add more protein into your diet. Protien cuts the carb cravings. (Beef, seafood, tofu, beans, eggs, yogurt, turkey & apple sausages (yum!)
Energetically yours! Viveca
