swainy_26 Posted August 8, 2014 Share Posted August 8, 2014 I am currently on Day 8 and wasn't thinking straight last night and didn't prepare anything for my lunch today - thought I would go buy something as a treat for myself. Went down to the local spot that offers all sort of good food choices thinking it would be easy - I was wrong. Wow. I never realised how many foods I would've just choosen before without thinking of things other than 'healthy' and 'unhealthy' could be detrimental to my health. This place does a lot of gluten free and dairy free options but things were marinated already etc. etc. so I went for a plain steak sandwich omit the bread and cheese...now I am thinking I probably should of asked them to omit other things too...I asked for extra lettuce and some tomato and they served it up to me in salad bowl so that was great but it also had beetroot and onion relish in it. I am not sure whether the beetroot was fresh so I don't know if it wouldv'e had any preservatives in it if it had been canned and I had no idea what was actually in onion relish until I got back to work and Googled it! Would this be considered as a fail for me and have me having to start the 30 day process again? I really hope not as I have done so well to get this far and I really thought I was making a choice that was good for me and the program and isn't that part of the point? I started this program as I have previously had experiences with IBS and was able to 'cure' it using Herbalife products and I was wanting to start having more whole foods over products. My main intolrence is dairy but I am feeling so much less bloated only at day 8 so I think reducing grains etc. has been a big bonus too! Help?!
