Thanks. It is so tempting to just do a quick crash diet to get rid of the extra 20 lbs, then work on healing, but I really know that it’s not going to work.
I’ve got symptoms of low metabolism and have had a practice of drinking a lot of water for years. Who knew?
I’m also trying to understand what to do when I am tired. For example, I had a good breakfast of all the major components, took the dogs for a 40 or so minute walk (my usual habit), and now I want a nap. I’m not cold though.
I originally gained a lot of weight in menopause and also began to eat to try to get some energy.
Right now I am also healing from an injury so I’m working on being patient and making sure I get nutrient-dense foods.
