1. Lay off all sugar. No chocolate, no baked item, pastries
2. No fats, no dairy; not even yogurt
3. obviously, no meats.
4. no snacks, nothing salty.
I realized I was eating a whole bunch of items that were not satisfying. Even a little bit of these foods, were not doing my body any good. I also realized that my stomach got very flat. Right now, I was living on ginger ale, and some saltines. I couldn't think of putting anything inside me that was sweet or gooey.
By the next day, I was starting to gain my energy back. I was off the couch. I lost 3 pounds, but I felt better. Since 10 days, I have been laying off all sweets and snacking. I found out that I am glucose intolerant. It was the yogurt, and dairy products, like cheeses...yuk! Guess what, since I haven't had the sweets or the carbs, I am not craving them anymore! Is this magic???
My belly ache for 7 days was the best cleanse of my life!
