yes you did in a way.
it has combo interests to it that suit your journey.
dizzy and weak is not waiting to adapt. it is you are not eating enough food issue.
can I ask WHY did you go to 2 meals per day off your 6 or so you were eating? Did you force this change?
another thing is nuts and chicken salad ain’t real food HAHA What you need to do is if you want no breakfast food, what do you want and when? Fry up a big old cheeseburger and take it to work and can ya heat it up or of course you can eat it cold but key being food is your life to your body. The meat protein and fats will heal and repair and re-balance hormones and take you to better health but when it requires food to do all this work, it requires food and it shows you that you aren’t giving it enough thru weak and more light headed, that is a sign to eat!!
5 wks is early. to me it sounds like you are not eating enough food point blank. I say eat all you want when you want, keep that focus on meat/fat intake, the carbs is ‘what gives the belly full bloat’ and I can say I can inhale a 1.5-2 lb ribeye steak and never feel that ‘icky full Thanksgiving day horrible gut stuffed feeling’ if I eat no carbs so…what you eat is a key on how well you do eat thru the day.
think of it like this, your car is saying it will sputter on low to 0 gas. your body is showing you the sputter thru light headed, weak and it says FILL me up WHEN I show you this. You put 1 gallon of gas in your car you go a short amt of time and sputter comes again, not a long ride on low fuel…you put in 10 gallons of gas and your car will drive smooth, efficient and longer as it should til the next fill up
I am not a morning eater, never was but when my first meal time hit, I ate like a hound dog, BIG FOOD and if you can do that, that is how most will do best.
it is tough in work environments but if you got a break room, bring a cooler of darn great meats you love and more and ‘have that break you deserve’ at work and EAT! sometimes it is tough to fit our eating personality into our day thru our work schedule etc, but you do that, yea you will find you will be alot better faster. take care of you, won’t take alot of time in your day for a great meal, but you do that, it means you show your value to you and your body and you will start to change even more into great benefits and feeling better longer and all of that stuff when you get longer on plan.
you are putting too much ‘dieting info’ into this change. Key is friggin’ eat and eat well and even if ya don’t want much NOW when you do want it, eat super well til happy as a clam…that is what changes us if we let the body direct us
wishing you the best and always rememeber, eating and food intake is what heals and changes us, restriction and scheduled food intake and all the dieting baggage is what ruined us.
