today is day 3 of my sugar detox. i’m grouchy. and tired. and snappy. and lethargic. and depressed. and fat. or at least, i feel fat.
my digestive system has been a little… out of balance as of late thanks to all the pie and sugary coffee and fast food frenchie fries and soda pops i’ve been imbibing. out of balance as in; my tummy hurt so bad 2 nights ago that i thought i was going to die. yeah, that bad. i felt like i was exploding from the inside!
so, a sugar detox it is. my poor hubby is already sick of me boobing about how all i want is a bowl of coco-roos. i don’t even like cereal! but all things sugary look fantastic to me right now!
just a few more days. just a few more days…
the rules of my sugar detox:
- no refined sugar
- no fruit
- no starchy sugars like potatoes
- no hidden sugar, as in bbq sauce
- no bread or other grain products
it’s pretty much a 21 day paleo eating challenge.
basically, if it’s sweet, it’s off limits. my only excusable offence is yogurt because i need the cultures to normalize my system. it’s definitely cheating because i could get a really good, well made sourkrout and get my cultures from there, but it’s expensive and i’m a po’ people. so, yogurt it is. now i could also do plain yogurt, but it just tastes awful! the only way to make it palatable is to add lots of honey and vanilla extract. so, back to square one: vanilla yogurt.
wanna try the detox with me?
