I know, I know. That is a photo of a book about detoxing from sugar and I am reading it, in a pub, while drinking wine and planning on eating a burger for dinner. What can you do? Don't worry though, this was last week and I was drinking wine to celebrate life and to prep for the upcoming detox. That's right, on Monday I started a semi-version of this detox, as a bit of a challenge and also because I am worried about the sugar that is sneaking itself into my daily life. It's all about eating cleaner, more protein and vegetables and nothing processed. You are supposed to start off basically eating chicken breast and broccoli for 3 days, but the idea of that brings me down, so I kinda started on week 3, when you can eat some dairy and oats in addition to the chicken breast and broccoli. I am not going to say that it is super easy and fun, I love cake and with this detox I can't eat cake, and the idea is that this is for life. FOR LIFE. But I am not 100% sure I am feeling that idea just yet, although the book states that you stop wanting anything sweet after a little while and then you would never want cake again. I am doubtful and therefore I plan on giving myself a cheat day every week, so I can go to a restaurant and eat my body weight in cake if that's what I want to do. Does it sound like I am really into this? Didn't think so.
