Today marks day 7 and the end of the first week. I think since my house has been mostly Paleo since last summer and any non-Paleo eating was mainly when just eating out, my body wasn't quite as in shock as some people who have been posting on the Facebook page. For me, it was giving up something I wanted. For some, it can be as serious as giving up something like cocaine - no joke. Just take a peek at this article from Details magazine. Think you're not addicted - I dare you to give this detox a try then.

Breakfast, Day 7
I'm also learning to discover the breakfast that isn't sweet. I grew up on cereal, LOVE a good bowl of oatmeal, crave cinnamon rolls, can devour a stack of pancakes and stuff like eggs and bacon were always secondary. And vegetables at breakfast?? Unheard of!
I have lost a couple of pounds with this, but that really isn't the point. I do feel empowered, I feel lighter, I am definitely less bloated and I can tell my sensitivity to sugar is increasing - green apples are tasting surprisingly sweet!
So here's to two more weeks.. and don't forget to "like" my Coach page on Facebook and spread the word. My goal in 2012 is to help motivate others in both areas of nutrition and fitness!
