Week one report on the “clean food” diet – after the first week of eating only foods with no added sugar, no white flour, no potatoes. Now, for most people this might not be a big deal but for me, sugar is like crack cocaine or crystal meth – it is ultra addictive. Back in college I was a known sugar-freak. Since then I’ve kicked it, and then gradually gone back and tried to only partake on holidays or special occasions and such – but it’s almost like they say with alcohol. If I stay away from it entirely I have much more success because the craving gets more and more remote.
Shmoopy can eat one piece of candy and forget about the rest. Not me – it’s definitely “You can’t eat just one” with me. So, clean food detox for the past week. How has it been? Not as bad as I thought. And the results so far are great.
This week I have more energy, better ability to concentrate and the “need” for sugary / floury foods is much less. I’m more productive at work, and yet I feel less stressed. I’ve been working out better as well. All around it’s been very positive. I’m going to try to keep this up.
