    I’ve personally not felt that.

    anyways day 4 now 🥳🥳🥳
    ​​​My cardio was a lot worse than it is now but I wasn't specifically trying to improve it the way I am at the moment.

    ​​​​I don't want to be pushing myself to my limits (the way I have been recently) while knowing I'm eating in a way that's damaging my cardiovascular system. Have I personally noticed a difference? It gives me a lot more confidence to force myself through barriers (now and in the past) when I know I'm trying to keep my heart healthy (along with du'aa and reliance on Allah Ta'aalaa, of course.)

    ​​​​​​Put it this way... do we want to wait till we're busy doing cardio exercises at full intensity when the effects of regularly damaging the heart strike? :|

    "For 50 years, saturated fat–found in meat, butter, cheese, and many baked goods and fried foods–has been demonized as the no. 1 dietary villain in cardiovascular disease (CVD). Yet decades of research show that sugar is actually even worse for the heart than saturated fat. In fact, a diet high in sugar triples risk for fatal CVD, according to a study published in Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases earlier this year. Excessive sugar intake also raises risk for diabetes, obesity, chronic inflammation and some forms of cancer."

    well day 3 went well. And I actually didn’t get any chocolate for flag day so I didn’t have to be put in a position where I might waver.

    I was quite a few days into it but took a few liberties and 'stretched' (shall we say) the limits a bit, so I decided to reset on November 1st.

    Going to need to stay on this and have cardio in good condition, not just for football but now for something else I've restarted... Otherwise I'll be regularly getting destroyed by people just from pure exhaustion.

    PS, there was a slice of French toast in the kitchen earlier (which definitely had sugar in it) that my hand was hovering over for a little too long. Need to build up the resistance again(!).

    Do try, sister. It'd be excellent if sister went on this again... Seems there are other sisters now also starting.


    Now we just need a few brothers...

    Eating sugar just makes me look so puffy which makes me feel like I gained weight even though I didn’t and I just hate that.
