Day 7 of 30

I actually got a really good night sleep last night. For me on a LC diet this is unusual. One of the side effects I usually get from cutting my carbs this low is a lack of sleep. The last time I tried this I pretty much stopped sleeping after about three days. I credit the structure of Protein Power and the focus on adequate nutrition vs the "eat when hungry" concept of my previous efforts. In retrospect I was probably starving myself of needed nutrients, and sufficient protein. Physically at this point I'm ok. I feel neither lethargic nor energetic. My mental clarity is up, yet their is still some fuzz around the edges. I don't think I'm completely adapted to the lower carbs yet. My ADD tendencies are diminishing, but I'm still easily distracted. Could just be my nature.
