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.
