I fell off the wagon and I fell hard.
The last 3 days my calories have gone from 1500 max to neatly 3000 a day. I am back to binging at night, which is mentally and physically exhausting. I was up many times during the nights with digestive problems and my stomach was so distended ... Read more
21 Day Sugar Detox- What I have learned.
Ok so I did not make it to the 21 Days according to L1 completely but I did 12 and I am proud of that. I am choosing to look my new plan as a modified continuance of the program to fit my needs and ideas. Admittedly I slipped up, some supporters... Read more
Why the 21 Sugar Detox is not working for me..
Day 14 of the 21 DSD. Maybe my will is weaker then I imagined but after a strong Friday, I binged on Saturday on cookies while I was home alone.. I am still struggling with leg cramps, constipation and fatigue, and some even some pains in my ch... Read more
Reaching new heights
I am giving myself a pat on the back today. It is offically Day 13 of the 21DSD! Last night was a friend's birthday party at a pizza place, I was in a very negative place yesterday mentally. ANGRY that I had to order salad at pizza place, and th... Read more
Day 12 - First binge on 21DSD
This week I have been feeling a little better, although still having some problems with my stools, leg cramps and fatigue while on this detox. To remedy this I have started supplementing my fiber intake with chia seeds, and eating/drinking ferme... Read more
"I can't eat it" vs "I don't eat it"
I have always liked specific types of diet (vegetarian, paleo, herbal detox) because there are plans that outline what you eat. I do a hell of a lot better when presented with unhealthy foods that I "don't eat" vs deciding whether I "should" eat... Read more
The Fat conundrum
Progressively while on this 21 Day Sugar Detox I have become very tired and weak, perhaps due to the low carb in take. I have talked to a friend that carb cycles and also asked the author of the plan for advice. Both have said to up my calories ... Read more
Day Five 21DSD (day sugar detox)
Well week one is going splendidly so far. I have been eating close to Paleo as Diane Sanphilippo's 21 Day Sugar Detox has suggested. Suprisingly I have not had any cravings or temptations yet. I did however have my period all this week , so it i... Read more
I have been studying different health angles (again) for the last couple of hours (hydrocolonics, detox foods) and it occurred to me: maybe this skin rash is meant to be the kick in the butt I NEED to get off the sugar and carbs (and whatever el... Read more
Well it was tough week for me, as it is the week before my period. I exercised but I also binged almost every night and the sugar and carb cravings feel like they control me 100%. Bread and sweets make my skin rash much worse it seems, however ... Read more
A new way of thinking- Easter
Today I was blanching some collard greens before going to Easter dinner at my in laws and the leaves looked so beautiful, and fresh- the very essence of that spring feeling we are all starting to get around this time of year. It made me think..... Read more
Weekends are my low points. I wait for the weekend all week for a break but when I get to them I dont know what to do with myself and fall into a detrimental pattern without enough structure.
I tend to get sad, negative and tired.
This week... Read more
I have come leaps and bounds! The last 2 weeks I have mostly offed the nasty habit of snacking on sugary sweets at work that come in the form of baking, or gifts. It was hard at first and I got a little pressure from co-workers at first but peop... Read more
One step forward, two steps back. I recovered from all my viral sickness from December and got back on the gym wagon for 2 weeks but now my back is injured and I can barely move. I am too young for this. I am bored and stressed and keep over eat... Read more
