Training Issues

So historically, I’ve had two problems with my training:

  1. diet
  2. consistency

Both of those are issues that are being addressed. Right now, this post concerns diet, and my big change therein. I’ve stopped the Pipeline o’ Crap that was polluting my body and have started eating healthy and have cut way back on my soda intake. I’ve also started in with taking various heart-health vitamins, and the EP-NO and Optygen again.

I’m pretty pleased with how that’s going. The downside is, my body hates it — stomach is rebelling and the digestive process is all wonky. Thus, I feel the need to publish a direct and open email to my digestive tract:

DEAR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM,

I HAVE RECEIVED YOUR MESSAGE REGARDING THE INTAKE OF HEALTHY FOOD, VITAMINS, AND SUPPLEMENTS. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WHILE I EMPATHIZE WITH YOUR PAIN AND SUFFERING, I WILL BROOK NO FURTHER ARGUMENT ON THE MATTER.

IN SHORT, YOU’RE STUCK WITH IT. NOW FUCK OFF.

LOVE AND CUDDLES,
DAN

Hopefully that’ll work. Because man, I’m getting sick of this. (Pun only partially intended.)

  1. It’s like the episode of The Simpsons where they started eating healthy and the whole family got sick, except for Lisa. That was great. Anyway, I can tell you that it takes anywhere from several weeks to a couple of months for the body to adjust to a healthy diet. Hang in there. It’s worth it.

  2. ‘Hang in there’ is indeed the key. Your stomach has learned to secrete certain chemicals when ‘food’ happens; now that the nature of ‘food’ has changed, your body has to learn to use different chemicals – because broccoli and Wonder Bread need different juices. Let yourself fall off the healthy wagon, and your stomach will go back to the old stuff.

    You’ll also likely feel weak and ‘off’ for a while, since your body’s having trouble pulling nutrients from the broccoli.
