This is a rather odd topic I know but some people actually don’t know why and how they are clogged up. xD Naturally, fresh fruit and vegetables are natures way of flushing out the system. Even if you think you can lose weight without fruit and vegetables or they are too complex to think up ways to cook them, remember, it’s okay to eat many of them raw! (Except maybe potatoes). No-one will think you’re weird if you’re out on a bus nomming an apple, well….they might if you’re deep-throating a cucumber while attempting to hide from view in the back seat….
GROSS OUT WARNING : – GUYS LOOK AWAY IF PERIODS GROSS YOU (THOUGH KEEP IN MIND, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND/WIFE/MISTRESS/FANCY-BIT/ LIFE-PARTNER/RIGHT-HAND IF SHE’S GRUMPY) AND SCROLL DOWN TO THE SAFE ZONE xD
Periods. Awful, messy, moody, depressing things. You’re emotionally charged and losing blood. Damn right you’re pissed of, but that’s not all! You can also get constipated due to the hormones going “I don’t fucking know :D”. One of the ways I learned to help is eating more fruit and vegetables and heaps more water. You’re flushing blood out so the body clings on to every last bit of water it can so drink more. Lean meats like grilled chicken are always good but especially good now for replenishing lost iron in the blood, and milk replaces the calcium to reduce cramps so that’s something to try to. Banana’s are good for extra potassium too! Simply put, even though you feel like crap and want to eat chocolate and crisps, you’ll feel better with healthier food. I heard that it can get worse as you get older though so if it gets completely out of control, maybe check with your doctor, perhaps it might be the onset of IBS? p.s. Online doctors are NOT a good idea.
SAFE ZONE (For the cowards out there :P)
It’s always a good idea to eat a little salad with every meal. A lot of people think that if you have salad with your dinner then you don’t need to have salad with your other meals. My boyfriend’s parents helped me learn a neat little trick 20% meat, 40% carbs and 40% vegetables. For EVERY meal. It helps you stay regular. Remember, not going enough can cause bowel cancer among other things due to the bacteria… (Ew!) and makes for a very grumpy person! So keep nomming green 🙂
That doesn’t mean cut out fats completely!!! That’s impossible, just keep paying attention to what you are nomming!
Oh, I’m also gonna post what I ate today for reflection purposes…. and in case anyone is interrested 😛
FOOD DIARY – 22/06/2012
Breakfast (at 12.30pm)
boiled and chopped up egg (in a cup) with four crispbreads – 200kcal
I was disappointed in this because I boiled the egg for too long and it tasted all dry and blergh! I settled on eating it anyway due to hunger. It was okay, but it could have been much better .___.
Snack (at 3pm)
Two Packet of Crisps – 200kcal
Yeah so I had an accident. They were there and I was bored and there was nothing on the telly. I need to get out more and stop lurking near food!
Pasta with peppers and mushrooms in a tomato and basil sauce – 300kcals
REALLY REALLY YUMMY! It made up for the iffy overcooked breakfast. I’m proud of this because I managed to stop when I was full and binned the extras that I could not finish so that I wouldn’t be tempted later. my stomach must be shrinking.
Crispbreads (x 2) Cottage Cheese, Ham and Salad – 160kcal
Drinks with countable Kcalories
Two x Glass of Milk – 200kcal
Worth it 😉
After having that pasta, I’m stuffed. It’s 8pm and I don’t think I’ll need anything else for the night. yay!
