Fast and body broken
I should have been scared to eat.
I ended my fast, and it has been a nightmare... I could not poop for days. Finally yesterday morning I was so sick of it I did every trick in the book.
I had two laxatives, 4 fiber pills, fiber cereal, coffee, and a juice drink. Then FINALLY I had a BM, but it wasn't anything too helpful.
I don't know what I did wrong.
I guess after 5 days of easy flowing, my body was not ready for other foods, and I should have eaten only RAW fruits and veggies and REALLY watched every bite I put into my mouth.
I have also been retaining water like a mofo. I know it's because for 5 days I had NO sodium whatsoever. Then when I stopped my fast and had minor amounts, my body wasn't used to it, and POW! Major bloat.
According to my scale, I weigh the same as I did before my fucking fast already in two days. I know it's waste and bloat, but it makes me feel awful looking at it. My stomach looks huge and even though I've been drinking tons of water, I can't seem to get back to normal.
SO, lesson learned.
I WILL be fasting again. I enjoyed it and my body responded really well to it.
Only in the future, I will be taking it slower. I will not shock my body afterward like this, and I will give it time to recuperate. And I may rethink the liquid choices... I think if I had thrown in some chicken broth I would have been better off.
Today's planned eats:
B: Water. Tons of it.
L: Yogurt and fruit.
D: Chicken and veggies.
Everything prepared as plainly as possible!
My goal over the NEXT 5 days is just to get back to fucking normal.
Think thin ladies.
