prairieportia Posted September 24, 2014 Share Posted September 24, 2014 Hi all: I am on day 26. All is going well. I have not noticed dramatic changes, but I had already eliminated grains from my diet and never ate a lot of processed food. I've enjoyed the sense of control this plan has restored, and have learned that fruit, nuts, and seeds can be dangerous for me. I will probably continue to eat this way most of the time, in hopes of getting down to my fighting weight. I never had any big health/digestive/inflamation issues, so I don't think that the reintroduction of the various prohibited foods will have a dramatic effect except for occasionally causing me to over do it, calorie-wise. Anyhow, sleep has been a challenge for me, since I work full time, have two young children including a nursing infant, and my husband travels for work a lot, leaving me alone to handle all household chores and childcare when I'm not at work. Since starting this plan, however, I've gotten even less sleep, because I need to stay up and prepare all of the next day's meals. I try to get ahead of the game on the weekends, and make extra for lunches, but there is still usually at least two hours of dishes and cooking every evening. Making mayonnaise, making ghee, prepping veggies, cooking meat. And this doesn't even count pureeing fruit and veg for the little one and getting that in little containers, and washing the bottles from daycare! Or the laundry or other housework. And then the baby wakes to nurse. Aaaah! I want to keep this up past 30 days, but I'd also like to get to bed before midnight, since I have to wake up at 5:30. Love to hear your ideas and experiences. Link to comment
