Good morning. It has been a while so I thought I would post. I have been doing a sugar cleanse with my dearest friend. It is so much easier when you have someone to report to! It is a lot like the South Beach Diet but this is what it is....
You can eat whatever protein you want and only green veggies the first month. That means no sugar, bread, pasta, baked goods, chips of any kind, no milk or dairy except for cheeses. NO fruit. All for the first month. It basically kills the Candida that grows in our bodies. Candida is like a yeast infection and it feeds on sugar. Most people have it. It is what makes us crave carbs. Kill it the the cravings stop.
I have bought sugar free treats to curb the sweet tooth and that really helps. I have sugar free jello and pudding and have even bought some sugar free candy. It really helps in the afternoon!
Last night I was weak and HAD to have something that was not protein or green! So I cheated with an orange. It was wonderful!
We started on Monday. I have gone running (if you can call it that) 3 times and I have lost 2 pounds. I try to drink a lot and take a daily vitamin that is really good. It is that liquid one from Costco. I love it. You don't really have to limit the fat intake with this "cleanse" which I really like! I can still have my ranch dressing which on other diets, I had to cut out. I hated that because I really don't like any other dressing much. I like Ranch on salads, to dip veggies in and things like that.
So, most of the time, it doesn't seem like I am restricting myself. For dinner the other night I made baked salmon which the kids devoured, steamed cauliflower with Parmesan cheese on top, and a really good salad ( which I am famous for I'm my family).
So...there it is. A sugar cleanse. A nice name for a diet! ha ha. It is working and every day I crave the sugar less. I am losing weight and eating healthy. That is all I really want. I don't care if I am skinny. I want to have endurance. I want to be strong. Able to run without having to stop or die from it. I want to be able to hike without being out of breath. I want my clothes to feel good and not be too tight.
Thank you Tash for doing this with me. I sure love you!
