Firstly I would like to apologies for my next instalment in my blog being two weeks apart. I have excuses but they mean nothing. The last two weeks however has drawn positives, providing reflection, grit and determination. Sugar cravings have been a real challenge to beat. I have to say I'm doing well and I think my body structure reflects on all the effort.
I believe the new diet has gone well today, I've been as strict as I can but it hasn't been easy. My breakfast was full on and seemed to last me most of the day. I'm not quite sure if its a good thing, so I think I'm going to speak to Ricardo (Harmony Nutrition Guru) and see where we can improve. I felt extremely tired by 3 o'clock and this was when lunch was.
Being a firm believer in practicing what we preach, I've decided to blog for you my metabolic typing. My girlfriend Lara has kindly agreed to do the same.
We'll be 100% honest and hopefully it will give you a bit of insight in what to expect if you were to really give it a go.
This weekend I had an in depth discussion with a family member regarding medical theories, research and medication. Our views were opposite to some degree, but I just wanted to highlight some simple ideas on how becoming more well read on a subject will help to inform and allow for better judgement. The discussion was related to what popular belief was on diets, medication and the way in which products are advertised.
