Yesterday was interesting. In my quest to recover from fatigue - I am eating more.
Yesterday was 3K+ calories - raw all day with a cooked low fat vegan dinner. I will also be sure to drink 2-3L of water daily and sleep a minimum of 10 hours.
After breakfast (10 bananas + 7 dates blended) - I felt full - and my hands/body really heated up.... my head continued to be in a fog.. and energy/ambition was not great.... however.. when I did something.. I had plenty of gas/power??
I repaired a sprinkler - this requires digging a hole in the TX clay soil... no fun. I went through that TX gumbo like a hot knife through butter ! I helped paint, cleaned the patio, back washed the pool, mowed the lawn....took a nap after lunch... (~ 1 hour)...
Last PM after dinner... i collapsed and was soundly asleep before 7pm.... after 12 hours of slumber (nice and deep).. I feel a bit better today.
Rode my bike hard this am (my legs are feeling it), did pushups, situps, curls, rows - followed with a breakfast of 6 soaked dates, 10 bananas, am now having a salad after my shower... I can feel my body heating up again.
Conclusions? Too early at this point to tell .. had some power and energy.. brain fog was persistent and I needed a LOT of sleep.. my intuition leads me to believe this is quite positive at this point... will continue my 3K+ journey... today will be all raw...
All the best - RD.
