Since around New Year's I've been really limiting when I eat red meat. For those that don't know what red meat does to your body, and the toll it takes - read a book.
For those that know me, my favorite food (besides candy) is steak. And cheeseburgers. So it makes it really hard to cut out red meat. But I've done a pretty good job, along with alcohol. And I've started to turn a corner in my training.
I had half a burger on Saturday night and woke up sluggish on Sunday. Last night I had steak tidbits for dinner and again feel very sluggish today. I was trying to figure out why and a lot of reaons popped into my mind; overtraining, mentally exhausted from so much on my plate... And then I looked at my diet for the past few days. Now, I don't know if this is the reason I feel tired, but I would bet money on it.
From now on, no red meat. Okay, once a month to celebrate being a live.
