This week my husband and I started juicing. We saw the documentry FSand ND and it inspired us to add more vegetables to our diet. We are not doing a complete fast. We are having juice all day and in the evening having a chicken soup with tons of veggies. I can tell you that I have been going through a lot of emotions regarding food. I know that I use food for too many situations. I get stressed..I eat. I need comfort...I eat. I want to celebrate...I eat. I feel empty...I eat. The first day of the diet I could not shake the empty feeling I had in my body and all I could think of was that I needed something (food) to fill me up and make me feel better. But I was giving my body fuel so I then realized my connection with my addition. The next day when I got that empty cold feeling I drank a cup of hot green tea and it made me feel better. I got to say that I need to find a different relationship with food in order for me to be healthy and in return teach my kids healthy eating. It is a struggle eat day...and it seems to be something different each day. I find myself daydreaming of healthy delicious foods that I could make my family that would still be on our new veggie lifestyle. So that is a good thing.
