Wheat Belly 10 Day Detox – Day One 10/26/16
Thursday, October 27, 2016
I decided to de-grain myself to see if that gets my head back into place in regards to weight loss. Pasta, bread, muffins...the root of all evil for me.
Need to eliminate them for now. So I am doing the Wheat Belly 10 Day Detox to get back on track. No grains, single ingredient foods, and managing carbs for 10 days. I can do it for 10 days right?
On Tuesday I had prepared things for my first day yesterday. I already had made the WB Broccoli Soup a few months ago (tried this before but ended because of illness in the family) and that was in the freezer. I also made the focaccia bread recipe that is in the WB 10 Day Detox book so I could have it for dinner. DH wanted BLTs so I needed a bread replacement. I had nuts and veggies so I was pretty much set for the day.
What I ate:
B: WB Apricot Ginger Granola with homemade almond milk (yup made it myself!)
L: WB Cream of Broccoli Soup; one hard boiled egg
D: BLT on WB focaccia bread, with Miracle Whip***
Snacks: Coffee with heavy cream; Coconut Chia smoothie; cheddar cheese; almonds
I made it through the first day but not without difficulties. I just wanted to snack all day. Looking at what I ate, I didn't eat enough veggies. It also wasn't a lot. After getting home from a meeting last night, I just pulled out the cheddar cheese and almonds and started gulping them down.
I need to plan better for snacks and increasing the veggies.
For dinner I needed mayo for my BLT and was going to make a Paleo friendly one but didn't have time. I grabbed the Miracle Whip which is not WB or Paleo so fail there. I also popped a piece of gum in my mouth on the way to the meeting...another fail. Just didn't think about gum not being on plan. Sigh.
Overall...not a bad day but it is a culture shock.
