This is the start of my 2nd month on the slow carb diet/4HB. My blog goal is to focus on different things each month – suggestions welcome! In January I was focused on cutting carbs/fruit and eating as outlined in the 4HB. I wasn’t super strict with dressings/sauces – as long as I was having a protein, veggie, and legumes.
This month I’m going to keep it up, get a little more strict, add some exercises, and try the cold therapy/ice water. I read somewhere that the ice water is KEY. I’m on day 2 of brain freeze upon waking, but I’m doing it. I forgot to use an ice pack on my shoulders last night…but I WILL remember tonight. Or I’ll just go outside – our low tonight is supposed to be around -1* (Hello Arctic Blast). Or….I’ll stick with an ice pack.
If anyone out there has their own 4HB blogs, please send me your link! I’ve become addicted to looking up other people’s blogs and following their progress – I’ve learned so much from other blogs and I feel like it’s kind of like a virtual support group.
If you are on Facebook, I HIGHLY suggest checking out: http://www.facebook.com/4HBParticipants This group has provided me with so many answers and support and in general I think of them as my personal cheerleaders Another group I just joined this last week is: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_103604729716668 which is the Tim Ferriss 4HB Discussion Group. I believe this is a newer group, but just as welcoming. Are there any other groups on FB that you are a part of? Let me know!
Here’s to continued progress!
