Sorry, I didn't post yesterday. I have Bible Study on Wednesday nights and was too tired afterward. So, I am happy to report I am feeling good...way better than I thought I would feel the first week. Don't get me wrong I have been fighting a headache since Tuesday and sometimes my neck gets really sore but nothing I can stand. Who knew even my neck liked the Diet Coke!
The eating plan is going well but it's a lot of work. Many trips to the grocery store and lots of reading labels...and lots of prep work in the kitchen. After this first week, I think things will get easier. Hopefully, I'll get the hang of it.
There are a few things I want to report so I'm going to bullet it out. Here we go:
*I am shocked at how good I feel. I can feel a difference. Like I said before I don't feel bad but I
can tell a difference.
*I am shocked with my lack of food cravings!!! I figured I would be going crazy for sugar or junk
food by now. I'm not. The only time I really kind of want something I can't have is when I smell
it. Like today I smelled a cake baking. I wanted cake! Then, when I walked past the smell I was
*I am beyond shocked that I have not caved in and had a Diet Coke!! I am proud too! I do miss
but not that bad. I've drank only water since Monday night. I did buy some herbal tea today
and I'm looking forward to that. I need something besides water.
*Phase 2 stated today and ends tomorrow and will be my least favorite phase. High protein, low
fat, and no carbs. I'm not a big meat eater in the first place. But, I can manage for two days a
*Even though I'm not craving Diet Coke I do miss the lift it gave me. By 8:00pm I am so ready
for bed. The book says this will improve as your body detoxifies more and you adjust to no
caffeine and sugar.
*There is soy in EVERYTHING!!! Well, almost EVERYTHING! My friends, soy is not good
for you! I actually thought it was. I'll post more on that later but I am just shocked at
how foods and drinks contain soy...tea, tuna, bread! Those are just a couple that
really surprised me.
That's all for now. I'll be back tomorrow or Saturday with another update and I'm also going to
write about "mindless" eating. I had a revelation about a few things today.
