I heard that drinking lots and lots of water can help with acne / skin condition
...my husband keeps reminding me I need to drink more than 1 or 2 bottles of water each day. I'm just so not used to it, and end up forgetting. In the past, I almost always only had drinks with my meals and not just throughout the day like you would with snacks. I need to get into the habit of drinking more water!
As far as the acne, though, I read up that it can be due to toxins leaving your system, especially when eating healthier or cleansing.
Dude, I farted so much when I first went vegan. NOBODY WANTED TO BE MY FRIEND! Lol
so don't worry, it's normal. It will last a few weeks. Also, I noticed that you're eating quite a few beans and lentils. That's good for protein, but not for the gas so much.
I would suggest just one thing: It would be best for you to eat a little more often. Eating small amounts more often increases your metabolism and keeps your energy up. If you can't do so at the moment, due to budget reasons, make sure you do this later on. It will help tremendously.
Buying local produce that's in season is a great way to get more fruits and veggies that aren't too expensive.
When you start your exercising, start off slow by taking a 20 minute walk everyday. I don't use resistant bands too often.. but I'm sure you can look up on the internet all sorts of different exercises.
Good luck with your progress ^^
Well, considering it is only me and my husband in our home, and we don't have many friends (except online), AND that we just keep farting in sync with each other...I don't see that as a problem for us!
I just hate that at first it smelled kind of revolting...
We figured since beans and lentils are cheap on our budget, it's a good way to go. That's our main problem. Our budget is just measly $100 in food stamps and $50 cash each month, and it can only go so far...which sucks! We're considering trying to eat less, though, as we have been eating a good bit, and I doubt it'd hurt us to eat a bit less and try to make things last a bit longer.
Prices are so costly at the stores near us! Though, hopefully when we move to Washington state, things should be better. We looked up places in the area where we're going, and they have a co-op nearby, so that might be cheaper on us to afford, hopefully.
Definitely doing resistance/weight training exrecises would help, especially with raising your metabolism. Then you'll burn more calories even while resting. For exercises I can think of a few. I'm not sure what type of bands you have,if they're closed or open, but you can do all sorts of things with them, I've used them in group exercise classes a lot. You can put both feet over the band, and then while holding it do bicep curls, overhead shoulder press, etc. Anyway I'm sure there are a ,ot of different websites you can find info and pictures of various exercises.
Eating frequently is important too, llike Marcina said. I have a habit of not eating frequently sometimes, and that's when I find myself tired and with no energy. Sounds like you're on your way!
Yeah, I'll definitely try adding that to my routine!
