So I purchased a book called Well Fed 2 and that led me to Whole30 – a challenge to eat well for 30 days. This means 30 days without alcohol, sugar, dairy, and grains.
I already eat about 70% paleo, and I’ve never really been a big fan of grains. So I’m hoping this won’t be too much of a culture shock to my body, but honestly I’m a bit nervous.
I do love cream in my coffee and various kinds of cheese! And everything seems to have sugar in it. When I started really reading the labels, I couldn’t believe how many foods have this added in.
Another challenge will be giving up my OPC-3 (it has 2g sugar to make it more palatable). I’ve been taking this dietary supplement with bioflavonoids for years and have managed to avoid the common cold. Or was it due to my paleo-ish dietary habits? How will I know which has kept me healthy?
Perhaps this will help in that regard.
So we’ll see how I do! My husband is doing this challenge with me (whew!) so that should make it easier. I was able to give away all of our sugar-filled things. Removal of temptation is a big part of this for me.
Wish me luck!
