Daniel Fast day1

Monday, February 25, 2013

I am starting a 21-day Daniel Fast today. It was recommended by my Dr. so I can get the crap out of my diet. No sugar, no processed foods, no meat. I have been gluten-free since the new year, so I will continue that as well. I have my recipes printed and went grocery shopping yesterday. I know I have the tools I need to do this- and I know I won't starve, but for some reason I am still scared. I am not sure what I am scared of exactly. I'll report back soon!


I made a delicious gluten-free vegan vegetable soup for dinner. My 3 year old son sat down to the bowl, smelled it and said "MMMMM" he actually ate it all! My hubby said "I could eat like this every day". I felt satisfied after dinner and didn't have a snack after that.
I had a headache at night, and ended up taking some ibuprophen at 3am...but other than that I would say Day 1 was a complete success!

    Sounds great! You might have some withdrawal symptoms but be aware that will pass. It's funny, sometimes you need quit the junk to lose the cravings.
    Anxiety is normal anytime you change from the routine, so relax while your body adjusts, you'll be glad you did.
