High Raw Detox Update
I haven't posted in a while about my high raw detox, but I am still going strong. I thought I would spare you more endless pictures of salads with avocado and baked sweet potatoes but I do want to let you in on my progress. More pictures will follow as my food options expand.
Slowly I am getting more energy, yaay! That and doing something about chronic migraines were my hopes for this cleanse and I think I am making some headway, more with the energy levels than migraines but even a little progress is great. I'm feeling very level.
My clothes are loose and I just feel all around better--emotionally, mentally and physically. The detox was for four weeks, but I am not going to stop there. When something is working, and you feel good, you don't want to stop. This way of eating is practical and enjoyable for me though I will be adding nuts and more fruits and occasional other things.
I don't miss the gluten and think that is something that will be gone from my diet permanently. My mindset about food has shifted. My 'cheats' have not been cupcakes, but cannolini beans, macadamia nuts, brown rice pasta and mango (all in very small amounts). I'm great with that and feel happy that I am not desiring baked goods or anything I consider unhealthy. Will check in with you again soon, thank you for your support!
