I was going to blog about my experience from day 1, but I'm going to be honest. Days 1-4 were rough for me. I crashed on my face. Please don't worry if you are thinking about doing this Crazy, Sexy thing, too. My crash and burn was from (1) cutting out certain pharmaceuticals, and (2) not doing a sufficient job of weaning myself off coffee. I can't stress the importance of slowly doing this.
I feel amazing.
Better than I have in a long, long time. An illness I have been battling is phenomenally better and going in the right direction. I've cut back on all medications, and no more sleeping pills. 1-2 cups of coffee per week. No sugar. No gluten. No dairy or animal products. 1-2 glasses of wine per week. About 80% raw food, and 20% cooked super-duper healthy food. And I absolutely hate it when diet people say this, but I'm not hungry and gnawing my arm off all day. No pizza cravings. There was a weak moment walking through Costco's bakery, but I smelled everything and moved on.
Thanks for the inspiration and advice Shannon. ;-)
