Syndrome X and Red days

SpaceAngel

I have just realised why I lose more weight when I am having Red days! I suffer from Syndrome X
which means I have to eat foods low in GI and I think thats why I lost so much weight on Atkins. I cant process refined carbs like pasta and white rice. I cant beleive it's taken me this long to realise why red days are better for me and why I am so hungry on Green days!

So anyone out there who is having Green days but is feeling tired and sluggish, you could also have Syndrome X.

The main symptoms are:-

Apple shaped (all your fat is mainly on your tummy)
Skin Tags
Funny skin patch
Fatigue
Mental Fuzziness

I get this! I realised when I either gained or stayed the same when I had more Green Days than Red. I still have 1-2 green days a week, but no more than that!

This is why I only do red days. I don't burn carbs off very well. it took me years to work this out, but this might be the reason I've only lost 1 pound in each of the last two weeks. I've been eating more carbs even though I've been on red days, I've been having carbs as syns, particularly Alpen lights. I've not had any this week so far, so we'll see at WI on Tuesday.

I lost so much weight when I did low carb but its too restrictive so I find that the red days work really well for me. I have wholemeal bread as my HEX and a HIFI bar is probably the highest thing I eat, although I have noticed that I feel pretty crap after eating it. Why its taken me so long to out 2 and 2 together is beyond me!

Syndrome X is another name for a medical condition called Insulin Resistence Disease. I was actually diagnosed at the DR's. I would never buy anything for weightloss off the net! You never know what your getting!

I done curves diet at the beginning of the year and tis low carb but not as restricted as atkins, i lost more weight on this diet but found it too expensive after a while. Its really just like doing mainly red days but alot more protein. I really enjoyed it!

I am not very good at having my HEXB's so I do eat quite a lot of protein. The problem with Atkins is that for it to work you need to be in Ketosis, although this seems to have changed now from something I was reading the other day. Your allowed more net carbs now. The only carbs I have are my wholemeal bread and HIFI bar, which is fairly minimal in relation to a Green day!

Glad you discovered this spaceangel. Maybe that is what is wrong with me too, i'm so lethargic, but i hate red days, though when i do a red day i feel full of energy.

Red days can be hard, but when I'm struggling, thinking of things I can eat, I suddenly realise that there is loads you can eat on a red day, if you want any ideas, just let me know :D
