Yeah that's right, my current goal is to lose fat (whilst retaining the muscle that I have). It's soy protein that I take. I think one of the main causes for my sickness is when I am under a lot of stress / extremely depressed. Been fine for a while physically, and mentally coping. It's when I start to go off the edge mentally that I get sick, at least that is the pattern that I've noticed.

I'm on a three month venture no wheat, soy, sugar, or processed food except for the 27th of each month.
It's good to have company.
Good eating to you.

I have bought a supply of celery and carrots, but actually just haven't been that hungry in between the shakes! Will be eating them though, especially on training days that's when I am hungriest and need snacks

So, you basically ate soy protein and vitamins yesterday? And you were killing yourself with the interval training? I think you said it right there. And how many times have you heard that this is healthy to do this to your body? It is healthy that you are starving it (not of protein or vitamins :mrgreen: ), but also asking it to do stuff that is way beyond what it wants to do? Very smart of you!

Luckily you are young and forgiveness is in the hormones and your DNA (which is still elastic with many telomeres yet to be taken off with each division). Just look for the signs of basal metabolism slowing though: weight loss plateau. Or sickness in physical, as well as mental, aspect as your body argues with you.

Eat like you give a damn about your health 8)

Yesterday (September 2nd) I had:

Afternoon: protein shake
Afternoon: protein shake
Evening: Bowl of kidney beans
Night: Plate of raw carrots


Today is the 3rd of September - check the dates of my posts. It's 2:45pm. I'll have something else to eat later. I feel great. Legs feel the workout after the interval training - as they should. If you don't feel it afterwards you haven't done it right. My heart / lungs are fine during the training, don't suffer the asthma that I used to years ago.
