Week 2-3 have been a challenge, not sure if it is due to the diet or because of how busy I have been. Regardless I have lost the energy spike I saw last week. On top of this I have become bored with the food selection and feel as so everything is just sugary.
As most know I am not one to focus on negatives. “Within every negative situation there is always a positive” Now that we have got all the negatives out of the way let’s focus on the positives =) My body composition has improved along with being able to sustain energy levels for longer periods, I have especially noticed while surfing, I last longer with a bigger wave count along with a quicker recovery.
Nearing the end of my third week I finally got around to getting a probiotic (Dairy-free) and Aloe Vera juice. I view this intervention as my turning point. My energy returned and began felling on top of the world once again. I was bouncing around with so much energy. It was the most amazing feeling! I don’t know if it was a coincidence or not but this intervention made all the difference.
What are Probiotics and Aloe Vera Juice:
Probiotic: Are live microorganisms that provide friendly bacteria which help your gut flora preform optimally. You can get probiotics from supplements, as well as foods that are prepared by bacterial fermentation. Probiotic foods include yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi and others.
Aloe Vera Juice: Active aloe Vera leaves are reported to contain over 200 enzymes and amino acids. It improves gastrointestinal function which help give a greater feeling of health and well-being, as well as increased energy and balanced weight management. Due to the natural detoxifying abilities it supports digestive tract through increased protein absorption which improves bowel regularity.
