I haven't posted for a bit and probably won't do too much for the next ten days while I detox. No, I'm not detoxing from illicit drugs, I detoxing from a completely legal one - SUGAR! According to the book The Blood Sugar Solution, 10 Day Detox Diet sugar is 8 TIMES MORE addictive than cocaine. Now, I eat pretty healthy already, organic, gluten-free, but this takes away ALL things that turn into sugar or spike insulin in your body or possible food allergens. If you are overweight, you have a sugar addiction, even if you don't eat sugar. Grains, potatoes, bread, junk food, diet soda, etc., etc., etc. all trigger insulin in your blood. So no sugar or sugar substitutes (worse than sugar by Dr. Hyman's opinion), no caffeine, grains (including wheat, rice, quinoa, corn, etc.), or dairy. Just lots of whole foods, clean protein, lots of veggies and good fats. Also some exercise and relaxation.
I promise to return to quilting soon, just need to take care of me and my husband for a bit. Wish us luck!
Color Me Quilty!
P.S. I have NO affiliation with this plan, book or doctor. I just wanted to try it out and thought I would share.
