There is a big difference between dieting to lose weight and eating clean to get lean.
I think for a long time I’ve tried to diet to lose weight not realizing that it’s a bad BAD idea in my case because:
#1: I don’t need to lose weight
#2:I am a long distance runner (need actual energy to perform well during my workouts).
After much self-convincingI decided to start the Eating Clean deal along with tweaking my exercise routines. I will be focusing more on building muscle rather than losing overall body mass.
Thescariest thing about all of this is the amount of food I actually have to eat…….. and the fact that I have to eat every 2-3 hours. It’sscary because is new and I have never ever done this before. If I have to look back and point out a moment in life when I was eating clean: ZERO. I’ve tried diets and abstaining from fast food as punishment. Even starving myself from time to time in order to feel like I was actually going somewhere.
Did I get anywhere?Nope.
I am honestly still kinda lost with this new style, but we’ll see how it goes. So far it’s been two days and I have a headache from all the sugar withdrawals…. I drink way too much sugary crap. MY GOODNESS. I know it’s normal until my body levels off once again.
Other than that everything is fine. I have a 5.0 mile run later today so I’ll definitely see how that goes.
