It was the Best of Times, It was the Worst of Times!

Last time I wrote, I told you about the 3 week vegetarian eating plan I was embarking upon. Today marks day 22...and finally I am back to a regular diet. I'm not gonna lie, it was tough. Especially when confronted with BBQ ribs and chicken, pizza and food from cookout. But I made it without cheating once, and it was well worth it!

Physically, I am very pleased. I've lost 7 lbs in 21 days and I feel cleansed and healthy. Our bodies long to eat food that is unprocessed, in the form God gave it to us.

I've discovered a new appreciation for beans, vegetarian chili, canned diced tomatoes and home made, pan-fried polenta. I've also discovered that I need to find an effective remedy for gas.

I've realized that my high sugar intake had made me tolerant of the taste of overly sweet things. After being on sugar detox for 3 weeks I notice a huge difference. I am going to continue to try to keep my sugar consumption to a minimum.

I can drink and enjoy black coffee.

I am very proud of you. It sounds like you are doing well on your weight loss. Keep it up . Keep the faith. Was it hard to detox from sugar? My biggest challenge is Chocolate. How did you do it?

Yes...the sugar Detox was hard. But, I have found, especially now that I'm allowing it again, that the more sugar I consume the more I crave. So , my goal is to really cut back for good. And, I think that's the key. Do you like dark chocolate? That has less sugar and, in small doses, has some health benefits.

Thanks for your comment!
