I have already told you my 2013 New Years Resolutions. I mentioned that I am looking to lose another 10 pounds, but that’s not my only motivation. I also want to kick some of these habits that have been holding me back. My addiction to sugar and carbs has been my biggest deterrent to losing weight. I love sugar and carbs too much and have refused to give them up thinking I could get my idea body back without changing the overall way I eat.
As of tomorrow, January 1, 2013, I will be taking part in the 21 Day Sugar Detox. I watched as Rhea lost almost 100 pounds on the Paleo diet, but she started it all by kicking her addiction to sugar and carbs using this same 21-Day Sugar Detox.
I have downloaded the book, read it front to back (and then some more) and I’m ready to kick this habit! Starting tomorrow, Diet Coke is hitting the curb and I’m taking on the water again. For a solid 21 days, I will be eating a diet devoid of sugars, carbs and sweeteners. It’s somewhat of a Paleo diet, but I’m not versed enough on Paleo to know if it fits strictly with in the mold (or even if there is a mold).
I’ll try to check in here daily with my progress and maybe even do a video diary of the 21 days. I foresee headaches and lots of grumpiness in my future, but at the end, I look forward to not craving sweets and carbs 24/7 and finally getting over this plateau again!
If you want to join me in this challenge, let me know in the comments below and I’ll follow-up with you to make sure we’re both staying on track! You can also join the 21-Day Sugar Detox Facebook community for additional support.
