Can you hear it, are you listening? Well can you and do you?
So many times I am guilty of not listening to my body especially when it comes to nutrition. I shared this with a friend as she shared she was not seeing results from a diet she was 100% in tuned to and noted weight gain and fatigue. We discussed the non scale victories and she denied so many and now she was getting depressed. I then asked how long 6 months. Was this necessary yes. There are so many times in change especially nutrition and workouts we look for “sudden change” , “immediate results”.
There are many that notice a change within a week and it is exhibited for others- GOOD FOR THEM. I’m not one to see rapid results and so many others are standing, sitting next to me on this one. I do (my opinion) believe in 4-6 weeks there should be at least one, always looking for more(that’s me too). If your body is sending signals indicating no, you note depression, getting ill and your PCP cannot find anything abnormal nor any of the other specialist and YOU believe it’s the change in nutrition just stop.
I know I’m no expert but what happens if you STOP evaluate for a few weeks to determine if the symptoms disappear. This is exactly what happened to my friend. She stopped the specific diet and in 2 weeks begin feeling energized, a weight change (decreased) and there were a few other rewards .
Every diet is not for everyone, every ones results are different. We as I have had to do tweak my nutrition many times. We just need to find out what works for us and our body as well as listen to the body. The body does speak to us, we just need to listen.
