I was skeptical, but natural peanut butter beats the old-fashioned stuff by a mile! I don't buy any other kind.

I am with IAMFIRMIN...I am finding cheat days don't work for me. I do have an occasional "cheat meal".

Over time you will find the clean eats make you feel so much better the food you crave now will become less and less appealing.

Use the mindset that you are NOT cutting out foods--but rather "replacing" them with something clean. For example: natural peanut butter for regular peanut butter or whole wheat flour for white flour. Start slow and build on it.

Good luck!



Quit making up excuses and "JUST DO IT"!

I grew up in a house where the adults drank alcohol all night. It wasn't considered a big deal, just what adults did. I didn't want to go there, didn't need the calories or the other effects. However, I'm not giving up fine wines or an occasional cold beer, but the key word is "occasional."

Also, since I'm saving myself the approx. 500 calories a day of the alcohol, I have an approx. 150 calorie dessert each night. Right now it's mostly Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches, but I'd like to find some other, fresher alternatives.

So... my journey is taking me to truly evaluating my eating once again. I have made HUGE changes over the last few years, but this one that I'm considering is going to be BIG too!!

I'm really looking at going to eating clean. BUT... how do you do it all the time? Do you ever get a "free" day or treat yourself? How does that work? I'm just not sure that I could actually eat ONLY clean!?

Help!!
