Eight weeks ago I wrote encouraging notes in my planner, but honestly, I never thought I'd get to this one.
eight-week sugar detox challenge, and while it was definitely hard at times, it was also incredibly rewarding, and now?
*I have lost 7.2 pounds - this is incredible because it would normally take me twice as long to lose this (thank you PCOS)
*We haven't had white sugar in our house in five weeks and I don't plan on changing that
*We have natural sweeteners to replace the sugar (stevia, honey, agave, etc), but don't even use them that often
*We don't plan on going back to refined sugar anytime soon
*To celebrate us making it, I think I will try my hand at making Erin's Naturally Sweetened Peach Crisp
Ben and I are on a roll, and in order to keep our momentum going we're going to try a few more things to end out the summer. At the suggestion of my health consultant we are going to try one week of no dairy, and two weeks of no gluten. I can't wait to see what we learn in the next three weeks!
Have you ever done a detox? Was it successful? Any good non-dairy or gluten-free recipes you'd like to share?
