I'm dealing with holding water like a sponge today, have no clue why and it pisses me off. hehe.
The ONLY thing I've eaten today that isn't part of my regular diet was a few spoonfuls of fat free cool whip. Everything else has been kinda the same stuff I've been eating all week - tuna, oatmeal, salad, broccoli, protein shakes, etc. This is the same stuff I've been eating for weeks, so I can only assume it has to do with me getting my period soon because if it had been caused by food, I'd have gone through this before since the food is the same...
what i hate most about this is that my arms and my face (not to mention my belly) feel swollen and heavy...
True. I sometimes experience it when I eat my meats before my veggies. Craig has explained it to me before, but I forgot why I am suppose to eat them the other way around.
Oh really? we're supposed to eat veggies first and then meat? Funny, I do that, but I didn't know it was a GOOD thing. I just do it because I like to eat the least favorites first, and finish it off with what I like best on the plate (which is usually the meat!).
I think so...I like my meat better than veggies, so I tend to eat that first. I think it is do to how foods digest or something like that.
If I remember correctly it is that the veggies (carbs) help slow down the digestion of the protein, keeping you full/satisfied longer, and not making you feel hungry again too soon... i'm sure there's a scientific explanation, but that's what I think was the gist of it.
would I be able to get that GNC? or something like that?
lol GoalGetter I know how you feel, I feel like that every day!, so I drink more water and it just makes things worse and I end up going to the :toliet: at least 3x during the night. it's either the 60+ grams fo fiber I eat every day, or it's a combination of all the water/food, can't wait till I get off this damn bulk
I am feeling bloated too!! My period is coming, YIPEE!! I may try the stuff Robert recommended!
Hey! Good morning!
Well, that makes two of us. I hate this. My period is coming just before EVERY four-week measure date. So when I'm going to get weighed and get my BF measured, I'm friggin bloated! ARRGHHH!
I would have loved to try the product Robert recommended, but honestly, I needed some kind of immediate relief, no time to order, and wait for it to get here in a few days. By then I'll most likely not be bloated anymore. But I am going to order it regardless, just to have for next time this happens.
That aqua ban didn't have any effect on me last night whatsoever. I slept through the night, despite having drank a bunch of water before going to bed (and no! I didn't wet the bed! haha!).
Today I took one of those time-release Diurex pills after breakfast as indicated on the packaging. I'm on my third liter of water, and just as many trips to the bathroom, and I've only been up for a few hours. Hopefully this will do the trick!
I couldn't even finish my lunch. I have no desire to eat, though usually by this time I'm more than ready to wolf down whatever I brought. I'm thinking this diurex pill also works as an appetite suppressant. it's got caffeine.
i've honestly never cared too much for water manipulation or whatever you want to call it...guess its because i never competed or anything. I just either try and drink water whenever i can (like during commercials or boring parts of movies, or everytime i get to another chapter or something), or i'll be hardcore and carry around a gallon with me everywhere.
