So we have 5 more days left on this 21-day detox diet.
I have to say that the first week was awful. I was in A MOOD.
No caffeine. No massive jolts of sugar. No peanut butter. No bananas.
But somewhere right around week two, I stepped on the scale and suddenly it all seemed reasonable.
Now I'm flat-out enjoying it.
Fruit and protein powder smoothie for breakfast.
Lunch is the big meal. Fish or chicken with brown rice and a huge bowl of veggies.
Snack- apple with almond butter.
Dinner.....pulverized soup. And then NOTHING ELSE.
I feel real, genuine hunger in the evenings. But I'm starting to like it because I know its eating away at my excess fat reserves. That's whats doing it for me. That and the drastic reduction of sugar in my diet.
I think I'll stick with this for a while. I'll still do some oinking out on weekends. I'll still eat candy every now and then. But during this phase in my life, when I have babies and can't spend an hour working out everyday, this is good for me.
I feel good.
