I am 3 days in so far and I have already felt the positive affects of adapting my diet. Not only am I down 3 lbs (I was up to 166 from all of the inflammation and slowing of my digestive tract, and I was originally down to 161), my headaches are delineating, digestion is improving(I am pooping like crazy, which for me is awesome), bloating is going down and overall I am not as fatigued.
So basically, I am a Liar.
I said I would blog everyday. I said I would blog the good, the bad the ugly. And that is what I want for this site. Truly a no bullshit approach to healthier lifestyle lead by food, but not limited to just that. It emcompasses it all. And hence the name Eatthewholeegg.
It will happen.
You can’t avoid it forever.
Someone will ask you to go out to eat with them. Friends wanting to get together. Family wanting a fun night. Something to celebrate. Maybe you are just too lazy to cook. In any case,
Me in the green
What's to come?!
So, before we begin. let me explain....
We have seen everyone's Before and After pics and had that surge of emotion that comes with seeing the dramatic transformation in someone else and think to ourselves, "I CAN DO THIS!!". The motivation, however, tends to be more fleeting; especially when you are faced with your food nemesis and good old motivation takes a vacation and you are back to where you started.....
And maybe you did decide to bite the bullet and go for it with great success and achieve the pinnacle of health that you set out for yourself. Congratulations!! You worked hard, said no to food nemesis and got through the tough stuff. Only to find yourself, so many months or years later back to where you started...or maybe...you are actually worse off than where you started. This is the cycle so many of us know all too well.
This is where my story begins. I am worse off than ever before.
