It has successfully gotten me through my first week of the 21-Day Sugar Detox. Really, it was the perfect meal that was so versatile that I ate it every single day by changing it up a bit. I ate it with Grain-Free Yuca Cheese Rolls, then I ate it over steamed broccoli, then I ate it as a chili mofongo (green plantains & bacon), and then I spiced up my morning omelet with it. Success. I was almost sick of it the last day, but now 2 days later as I’m typing this up I’m already itching to make another batch.
Speaking of itching (and burning) DO NOT touch hot chiles and then touch your genitals afterwards. Not good. Oh, my poor boyfriend. This time around I remembered to wear protective gloves so at least I wasn’t in pain like him the rest of the night.
My first week of the detox went really well until day 8 hit. I was at work and one of my customers said his regular Coke tasted like Diet Coke, so automatically I went back to investigate it- by sticking a straw and taste-testing the Coke & Diet Coke. Bad idea. I didn’t think anything of it that day but then the next day I woke up with severe sugar cravings. It was like day 3 (the worst of my detox) all over again. Almost so that I was thinking of pulling a guns-blazing “F*UCK IT” move by gorging myself on Haagen Dazs. That was the same day my coworker brought me my favorite cheat meal, gourmet Mojo donuts. Which of course I refused to eat. Ugh.
Anyway, I feel much better today. Thank God.
So is anyone else having issues with the 21DSD, or are you guys passing with flying colors? Leave a comment with your day/progress!
