It is the fourth day of my food change. It has been easy. I was sick to my stomach the night of the first day but I don't believe that was related. The good news was the next day I did not go for sugars and comfort foods like I used to do when sick. I eased back into food and ate wisely according to my parameters.
What I find is that I don't have any carb cravings when I eliminate certain foods, and I feel more relaxed and calm. And focused. Eating carbs and sweets is distracting. Sometimes I feel like I am missing something in my diet, I miss fruit but I will add that back in later on after this two week stabilization period. When I feel like I am missing something it is really the recreational aspect of eating, so I reach for a book or do something. Or I have a drink of water or a cup of tea. I am not missing nutrition because I am getting enough of that. It is the habit of snacking. It has been quite easy.
I prefer eating like this. So I will keep on doing it!
