I decided to go cold turkey (pun intended) and stop eating beef, chicken, and pork. I bought a juicer - love it! And I started looking at vegetarian meals. The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to eliminate meat from my diet. The second thing I noticed was how good I feel! So now it's been almost a month and I am not missing meat at all - no cravings, nothing.
So here's my theory - I am giving my body so much in fresh veggie, fruits, and whole grains that it's not interested in any of the garbage that is in meat. The funny thing is that I do not crave salt as much or sugar. I don't have those evening urges to have something sweet and in fact sweet things just do not "turn me on" at all. I have a freezer full of Coconut Hershy kisses and Coconut M&M's and have no desire to have them at all!
Lesson to learn - give your body all the right stuff and you won't even desire the wrong stuff!
