Last time, I 'fudged' the rules, because I trusted my husband to have read the book - he was supposed to be leading us in whole30 while I was trying to get a 45 day yeast cleanse program down! HA! I knew something was wrong when he didn't know what ghee was! ;-)
Anyway - this time, 'I' read the book - and the FREEDOM!!!
I know many folks are torn up about the 'rules' - but for me, with health issues, all related to inflammation, this book, this woe, is FREEDOM!
And, after reading the book FOR MYSELF, I realize several of the food issues that I have had...ways that I have cheated(I was the queen of weight watchers cheating back in the day!), and that it is NOW time to get serious!
I realize that I have been feeding myself poison...even in moderation! I HAVE BEEN POISONING MYSELF! I think it is a pretty sound rule "DO NOT TAKE POISON" Some poisons kill quickly, and some, a long drawn out way. I want to stop this crazy way, and the RULES are not shackles for me, but are like road signs for me to go the right direction!
I'm 52 - over half way to 100. If I live to 100, I want to be healthy, fit, and sound of mind!
Making these choices now will impact my then...and I hope that it is not too late!
Thank you, Robin, for speaking out on the 'rules'!
