21 Day Sugar Detox: Day 1

21 Day Sugar Detox | Vibrant Life Army Wife

Happy Monday friends! I wasn’t originally planning on posting today but I just wanted to let those of you know who don’t follow me on instagram that I’m starting a 21 Day Sugar Detox today! If you have no idea what I’m talking about you can learn all about it here.

Between our cruise and going out to eat a bunch since my husband got home, I’ve gotten a little out of control in the sugar/carb department. Now don’t get me wrong. I am in no way a low/no carb person. I love me some sweet potatoes and don’t even get me started on plantains. But I find that when I eat too many carbohydrates, whether it’s in form of sugar (like honey, maple syrup, cane sugar, etc.) or starchy vegetables or fruit, I just continue to crave more and more. And often I satisfy these cravings with the wrong kinds of carbohydrates, as in paleo cookies, muffins, etc. I am on team paleo treats in that I believe that they can have a place in a healthy diet as long as it is in moderation, doesn’t take the place of other more nutrient dense foods, and that there are no other health issues or serious fat loss goals. But this doesn’t mean that they should be happening on an almost daily basis… I told you I’d gotten out of control. So basically I am doing this program in an attempt to reset my sugar/carb cravings and get back on track with my whole foods, nutrient dense way of eating. This is my third time doing this program and I’ve great results in the past (even last time when I quit on day 20 because I really wanted some hash and the “Good Morning” beverage at 24Diner).

So for the next 21 days I will be filling my plate (and my belly) with a whole bunch of vegetables, meat, and healthy fats with a few green apples and a sweet potato or two to fuel my workouts. I will probably share a bit about my experience here but for more information about what I’m eating on a daily basis make sure to follow me on instagram!
