Since December 29th I’ve been partaking in a somewhat gruesome cleanse for the purposes of restoring my body to full health. The past six months have been a roller coaster of failed health for me, and I thought it was high time that I did something about it.
There are so many out there to choose from, but I decided to go with an anti-fungal cleanse to see if fungus was the culprit for my ailments. I’m happy to report that after a month of eating on veggies, meat, nuts, eggs and plain yogurt, I feel exponentially better! Now I’ve moved on to stage 2 of the cleanse, and I can eat green apples, oatmeal, beans and brown rice again.
Giving up coffee and sugar was pretty challenging at first, but I’m so glad I did. I feel great, and am now contemplating what life is going to be like after this cleanse. Will I give up white sugar forever? What about other stuff? I suppose it all depends on how my body reacts once I start eating more fruits and carbs, but for now I’m seriously considering a permanent life change. We are, after all, what we eat.
Yesterday I stumbled upon 25 reasons sugar is bad for you. It’s hard to make a case for continued ingestion when science points towards failed health as a result of consuming it.
In other news, I started making my own yogurt, and I’m having so much fun with it! It’s so easy, cheap and delicious- you should give it a try if you like yogurt!<!–p>
