This is my second post regarding my new healthy diet/lifestyle change.
I find I really like how this program gives me a week to prepare for my new lifestyle. It may seem like you just want to jump right in but in the week of lead up gives you a chance to study and understand the program. At the same time I’m reading Fat Chance Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease by Robert H. Lustig M.D. I started it this morning and got 14% through before I had to go pick up my son from a class he’s taking. While I’m finding the book to give me more information than I want and am anxious for him to get to the information I want to hear about, he’s quite thorough in helping you to fully understand how the body, digestive system, hormones etc.. are all effected by food.
Today, for the 21-dsd, she takes you though where sugar hides. While I already knew these things it’s a good refresher and encouraging me to make my own salad dressings, mayo and sauces, which there are recipes for in the recipe section of the book. Also, you’re supposed to start thinking about your “Why” (everyone it seems does this “your why” thing) Why am I doing this detox. At the end of the week your supposed to actually write it out as you’ve been thinking. Here’s my why right now and let’s see if it changes as I learn new things in the remaining days Pre-Detox….
I’m currently the heaviest I’ve ever been. I feel the worst I ever have. I have fallen into bad habits of easy and fast what tastes good foods. I want to do this “detox” to re-train my brain. To cook healthy Whole Foods. For my cholesterol to go down and for my kids to learn good eating habits with me so that we can all take what we learn and make it habit. Just the way we eat. Healthy and full of energy.
