Prophylactic self-isolation for menu transformation. Day 36th.

What I mostly hear around (while scrolling social media and reading my friends’ messages) is that we gain in weight by minimum 2 kg during this lock down. Even those who are doing sufficient sports at home, even those. The reason is simple as that: all the goodies of a grocery store are now available just beside in a kitchen! Who brought them there, ah?:))

We gained those two kilos in a form of undigested food inside a stomach and intestines, that’s all. We just stay at home with that additional food inside of the bodies. Fat layer or muscles-to-fat transformation is a loong process, not an outcome of 2-4 weeks, no chances:) Let’s get that clog out of there! (and not clogging repeatedly:))

Our bodies are designed by Nature to consume SIMPLE food, with absolutely no mixtures at all. And more so, to consume for well-feeling, not for feeling tired or off-energy to grab a dose of caffeine afterwards.

Have heard, feeling hungry causes only the one (1) problem – hunger feeling, while feeling [ful] / [fu:l] ?:) causes a hundred (100) of problems. Well, I tried to find out for myself just 20 sequences of being full, from a rigorous observation how I feel within last 15 months.

Here are my 20 (21) sequences of being full (the list could be continued so):

  1. Constipated
  2. Headache
  3. Feeling tired constantly
  4. Getting tired quickly
  5. Need for unnatural energy boost (in a form of sugar, caffeine, or cakes)
  6. Dry skin, my skin feels like a desert when I am overeating
  7. Dreams, any kind (I know the feeling of blessed sleep with no any dreams, just total relaxation)
  8. Irritated to any external stimulus (a call, a talk, an alarm, other people)
  9. Internal, deep dissatisfaction with myself, which starts just after wake-up in the morning
  10. Dissatisfaction with myself spreading all around, and it is hard for positive person to remain positive than, which leads to:
  11. Internal battle of overthinking and judging myself and everything around: “bad” or “good”, “wrong” or “right”
  12. Tongue plaque
  13. Apathy
  14. Reluctance to do anything, laziness
  15. Desire to complain
  16. Feeling of uncertainty and fear in regards to anything that comes to a mind at that moment
  17. Weight gain
  18. Non-productivity in daily life
  19. Further craving of junk or healthy food (it does not matter which type:))
  20. Swollen face
  21. Oversleeping for 8-9 hours

People, seems that those 20 (21) symptoms are with us on a daily basis and never were abroad!:)

The list could be continued, but let’s finish it for today:) Honestly, I have never thought that being half-hungry is a blessing, until I tried. Don’t judge me (see clause No 11:)), being on self-isolation I went on vegetable juice fasting for two days for the simple reason to start feel better than before.

It is not a first time I am trying to go on half-fasting, and believe me, it is always hard, but mostly mentally. After several-to-ten attempts, one could see a tiny progress, and that is enough, there is no place to hurry, stay calm at home:).

One could be disappointed (however, see clause No 9 and 10) that getting out of those common 20 symptoms is impossible for him, in his circumstances, how he thinks. However, the power of human is in a process, not in a result. Making first (but not mentally fast) steps takes you to another lever, and there is a beauty… “A beautiful thing is never perfect” – proverb

As I am a human, and therefore, not perfect, here are my 12 mistakes while diving into vegetable juice fasting:

  1. Forgot to drink more water than usual. As a result – a headache, because less toxins were probably washed out but circulating in blood vessels all day long
  2. Made a version of “heathier” vegetable juice by adding turmeric root and cranberries (gave slightly bitter unusual taste). Good idea is to ride ONLY on already known tastes, like beetroot with carrot – amazing and sweet!
  3. Overload myself with household works.
  4. Forgot to be on a fresh air most of the time (I have a balcony, I needed to go there, that is for sure)
  5. Was dealing with a writing of long blog post. Yeah, mental activity should be paused on (half) fasting days
  6. Have put an antenna on my head by scrolling on social and mass media news. Relax, only relax, baby
  7. Cooking tasty dinner for homemates. (Better to announce a light dinner for everyone and make just a simple salad for others. You could be surprised, but many times I heard, a good salad makes everyone satisfying:))
  8. Drank a herbal tea in the evening with 1…2…3…4…5 teaspoons of honey. Honey honey, when it comes, I know for myself, half-fasting is over. Next time will try to withstand a honey attack:)
  9. Overthinking about the feeling of being hungry. (Better to relax with a positive book or relaxing hobby)
  10. Made sports and power exercises. Gush, half-fasting days are for relax, only stretching and breathing exercises are acceptable and welcome
  11. Saving of constipation clog before the start (one should think about enema, or plant-based laxatives, at least, before the start)
  12. Went to sleep later (and therefore did not allow for a body to feel deeper relax)
