So my coworkers have talked me into doing this 21 days sugar detox with them hahahaha. Normally i am not a big DIET person, or detox person for that matter, i believe more in lifestyle changes. That being said i think we here in America, especially, consume way to much sugar, it is in everything!!! So ill do the “extreme” crazy diet then slowly add some of the things back in as i want to.
Also i am not doing the normal 21 day detox, i am letting myself have more fruit than they say becuase its summer and there is a lot of beautiful fresh fruit, i will make it so i only eat organic and from the farm though.
Saturday i fly back to Nevada for my mom’s wedding and to pack the rest of my stuff so all next week will be eating whatever is available while we pack. When i get back around/after July 4th i will start the full 21 days.
You can look here and here for some ideas about the 21 day sugar detox.
It is actually not as horribly bad as i thought it would be.
Here is as an example of the diet, oh and since ill be working out a lot i decided i will eat poatotes if i want to, but only homemade products made by me from real potatoes.
Breakfast: protien drink that is low carb and no added sugar. I also had french vanilla flavored coffee with full fat cream and no sugar. (the flavored coffee helped lessen the no sugar part for me)
Snack: a small banana, salad (mix of iceburg, veggies and romaine) with small strips of grilled chicken and pico de gallo for dressing, ready pack of organic apples, leftover corn with a smidge of butter garlic and pepper and some baby carrots.
The snacks were spread throughout the day.
Lunch: boneless, skinless, organic chicken thigh with brown rice. Flavored with italian seasoning, lemon juice, garlic and wine that had all the alcohol cooked out of it.
Dinner: Grilled Tilapia with potatoes and green beans
Are you going to try the sugar detox?
