Kate C Mayone Posted November 1, 2014 Share Posted November 1, 2014 Hi All, Excited to announce I finished my 61st day today. I plan to start a slow reintroduction later this weekend. I'm interested in testing out dairy...greek yogurt vs. heavy cream vs. ice cream. I will eventually include natural sweeteners and chocolates back into my diet but I'll try to hold off as much as possible now. Trying to see if other foods trigger the sugar dragon first. My long term goal is to stick to a whole30-ish at home plan and just ease up when I'm out. Last time I experienced some strange throat dryness and swelling when reintroducing foods so I'll be paying closer attention now. Some things I'm surprised to have learned.. It's easier than I thought to give yourself more sleep every night - just do it I don't miss cheese I can go two months without drinking alcohol Coffee was my friend (albeit crutch) this time around I've kicked most of my mindless eating habits except for when I'm food prepping I'm a lot nicer and more patient when I'm not 'on sugar' - my coworkers will attest The 'fish and broccoli' test is a great way to decipher hunger v. cravings...use it I didn't really lose much weight (maybe 8 lbs) after two months of strict eating - and that is totally okay - I feel and look great! Keeping a journal not only kept me accountable but helped me be more mindful of when/how often I eat/poo My bowels still aren't sorted out entirely but they aren't as bad as they were before either My sugar dragon is still sleeping in a cave somewhere but I really hope my magical cat and unicorn duo can keep him at bay Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
