OK, so I started this 100 days of whole foods challenge Monday and I already went down a notch on my belt! It was absolutely the easiest thing I've ever done.
The rules are that you don't eat anything processed, that's it.
So, I had to replace my Caramel Macchiato with a plain latte, which was surprisingly easy considering I'm practically addicted to them. It is a little hard to figure out what to eat when I'm used to having a frozen meal once a week and protein bars for breakfast every day.
I basically substituted nuts and fruit for breakfast and tuna instead of lunchmeat and it's been pretty easy. Of course, I'm only 4 days in. But, I'm only 4 days in and already my body changed!
It could just be that I lost that bloat or inflammation that comes from eating a lot of sugar and processed whatnots. And I feel good. I haven't felt really good like this in ages.
Honestly, I started this thinking I'd give it a week. Just 7 days and see how it went, because I was afraid it would be a real burden and maybe not very reasonable for the life I live. I'm getting more committed to it now though, seeing how it's actually made meal time much easier. I'm not trying to decide what to eat - it's like, can I peel it? then I eat it. LOL
