I have decided to do a little no sugar diet for 2 weeks. What? Crazy I know. What sparked all this? A Facebook page I found this morning. This woman cut out sugar for 8 weeks and had amazing results. Here is her fb page. She suffered from hypoglycemia and an auto-immune disease. I have these same issues in some form or another. Check out her website about autoimmune diseases, I find it so helpful.
This is perfect timing for me. I am mentally ready for this challenge. After going on the raw milk cure for 10 days and feeling AWESOME I can’t stop thinking about what permanent changes I need to make in my diet for my long term health. As a SAHM I am easily persuaded to eat the leftovers and bake all day, because I love cooking and I have all the time in the world. Sometimes I feel like good food is calling my name. I also have a 4 year old that loves to bake, so I am like what the heck… let’s make some cookies. That is a fun activity right? Of course, but then cookies are my favorite treat and I have no control, especially when I make my favorite chocolate chip cookies. I always have a few too many.
So this is my time. I am going to start by following this no sugar diet for 2 weeks, but I have 1 modification. I am going to allow fruit. I will keep my fruit consumption down, but I am keeping it in for now. I am not ready for no fruit- but maybe I will be in 2 weeks. I will reevaluate. My goal is to do the diet for 8 weeks, but I don’t want to stress out about it so for now I am just signing up for 2.
No more HONEY. No more ORGANIC SUGAR. No more fresh fruit juice. No more CHOCOLATE. AHHHH!
Another note~ I am also taking out gluten. This is going to be harder than it looks.
No more WHITE FLOUR. No more TORTILLAS. No more SANDWICHES.
Why the torture? Because I woke up this morning w/ a double ear infection and major sinus congestion. That is torture to me.
Scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese for breakfast.
1 cup milk for snack
Smoothie for lunch. Yogurt, strawberries, banana, ice
1 cup milk for snack
Dinner. Rice. Cooked Carrots. Roast.
1 cup milk for snack.
~At the end of the day. No more congestion and no ear pain on either side. I was treating the ear pain w/ a few remedies, but I know diet can really help also. Last night I slept sitting up because the drainage was so bad, so this is great for me. 24 hours and I am already doing better. These fast miracles are what I love about cleaning up my diet.
~Not too bad today. Am I READY? I hope so because this post makes it official! I can’t be a quitter or a loser!
Ready. Set. Go. As my 4 year old would say. You can do it Mommy.
