If you know me, I love food. And if you’re reading this I am betting you do too. It’s hard to change your way of eating for some people. Not any ONE way will work for all. Here are some options for you to try:
1. Start out slowly. Try eliminating sugar. Sugar is added to all kinds of processed foods and drinks. When you read the labels, don’t worry about the percentages section, look at the list of ingredients. Sugar can be disguised as dextrose, sucralose, Splenda, cane sugar, turbinado sugar, etc. if it is on the list, pass on it.
2. Take the middle of the road. Eliminate sugar AND grains from your food intake. There is a very helpful podcast out there by Vinnie Tortorich. A cancer survivor who educates on the no sugar/no grain lifestyle. He talks in detail about this on his podcast. (Caution: rated R!). Vinnie Tortorich podcast
3. Go all in…. 100%. Try it for 30 days straight. Get rid of everything in your pantry and refrigerator that causes inflammation in the body. No sugar, no dairy, no gluten, no alcohol, no legumes, no soy, no grains, no processed foods. Get the whole30 book and read the whole thing!
