I have to get this off my chest. Last night I saw a friend of mine who decided to make a change with her weight. So she decided to buy the Acai Drink??? I don't understand exactly what that will do for her. Then she decided to get on a no sugar, very low carb diet. I think she can have like 15g of sugar a day and no more than 30g of carbs. Are you serious!!! When I saw her she was obviously not feeling well at all. She said she's been very angry, depressed, hot tempered, nauseated, severe headaches, achy, and extremely weak. She's been on this for almost 2wks.
I looked at her and said "Honey, this isn't healthy!" If you are feeling this awful, you may drop some water weight and a few extra pounds but your body is going into starvation mode. As soon as you begin to eat normally again, you will gain it all plus some more. I have been on my journey for the last 2yrs and lost 40pounds. Now I have 40-50more to go, but I have been successful. She looks at me like I have no clue what I am talking about! REally??? So frustrating.
People are so desperate, that they do the most idiotic things. Why would you continue if you are feeling that awful? Makes no sense to me. I told her to eat healthy and clean, she will lose the weight. Do you think she'll listen....no.
