I am on day 20, and honestly, I can't wait for it to be over. I have a real mental block about homemade salad dressings. I don't know why, but I do. And normally I eat an average of 4 salads per week, but I haven't had salad at all. I did lose those pounds I gained back, so that's good, but overall, I don't enjoy this way of eating. I miss beans, condiments, and oatmeal.
I do REALLY appreciate how this broke me of sweets, soda, desserts, etc. and cheese. I don't even love cheese, so why was I putting it all over my salad and soup? It's fine without it. I can't wait for my 10 days to be over so I can start using my favorite salad dressing (that is still dairy-free) and oatmeal. I will continue at least through Easter to be wheat and dairy-free.
Alcohol is a whole different beast. I miss it only second to salad dressing. I will keep that out until Easter as well, though.
I thought I would get this raging energy or feel so much better, etc., but I don't. My major positives are my eczema completely clearing up due to the dairy being gone and the breaking of the sweets addiction. The physical addiction, mind you. I still think about dessert or diet dr. pepper at every single meal, although now I feel like I could avoid it.
