The question people ask me when I tell them I am about to cleanse is "why". I also hear I can't give up _______. Well my new answer is "It's taken 2 years to get here, but I am actually looking forward to it". I have had several health problems over the past few years so now food and diet is not just about losing weight for me anymore. Actually I don't care about the scale or the numbers anymore. I pay attention to it but it does cause me stress or fear any longer.
You know the old saying never talk about sex, religion and politics at social gatherings, I think you have to add diet to that. We love our food and do not think about taking it away from us. I am lumping coffee and alcohol in this group as well. People get very passionate about their diet. Whether they are on a restrictive diet or not. Ask anyone who is Gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and just tries to eat a whole food/organic life style.
Hey I am not looking forward to not having Starbucks for 3 weeks. I may go there for a herbal tea but I love coffee. But I want to feel better. I want to have energy. I want to be focused. So if that means abstaining from a few vices for 21 days, I am all in.
