Hi there, my name is Tracy and my husbands name is Mark
Hi there. My husband and I have just started using the NB for the first time on Monday of this week.
I have a question about being tired after drinking the shake. Should someone feel tired after drinking a NB shake. My husband gets really tired after lunch. This may have nothing to do with the NB shakes as we have been eating non NB shakes at lunch time. He is at work and I am a stay at home mom. I am not tired at all, but since we have started doing the shakes since this past Monday, my husband gets really tired in the afternoon. On Monday when he was off he needed to get a nap. So far this past Tuesday and Wednesday he has expressed to me that he is tired after lunch when he calls me at home. And then he expresses his tiredness when he gets home from work. He works 9 am to 5 pm. He really had no tiredness issues before we started the NB shakes. Him and I have talked about this tiredness issue and we just can't come up with any real ideas as to why this is happening to him. In addition, for lunches we are trying to eat what is left in the fridge and cabinets so as to not waste the food we have bought before we started doing the shakes. The shakes consist of 50% organic spring mix (lettuce, kale and spinach) always, and a mix of any of these on different days - organic strawberries, banana, organic frozen mango, organic frozen pinapple, frozen rasberries for me not Mark, organic chia seeds, and organic goji berries. Mark and I really would like to be able to do 2 shakes a day namely at breakfast and lunch and the a healthy dinner but money is tight and we are trying to finish all the food we bought before buying foods that are tailored toward the NB system.
So here are our biggest concerns:
1. Mark getting a full night's sleep without waking.
2. Mark not being extremely tired after lunch.
3. Losing weight
4. Eating our ways to more healthy lives. Mark's mom and dad's sides have had heart disease, blood pressure problems and cancer (his mom died in 07 and grandmother in 93 of cancer), and diabetes. Mark has been tested for all of these without any concerns. He is 34. Tracy's mom and dad's sides have been healthy for the most part.
Any input toward this message would be very helpful and much appreciated.
Mark and Tracy
PS. Here's to a better life!!!
