It was perfect timing that this 21 Day Sugar Detox came across my path at this particular time. I am so ready to be rid of the carb/sugar cravings I have been dealing with and finally conquer this beast!
Today is Day 1, and as proof that I have definitely been addicted, by the evening of this first day, I am already reeling from withdrawal symptoms. I suddenly got a migraine and severe upset stomach and had to just go to bed. It came on fast and all I wanted to do was eat some crackers! No can do on this detox!
I knew I had to push through this because, from past experience, I knew there was nothing seriously wrong, even though it felt terrible. I was simply experiencing a withdrawal from the sudden stop of grains and sugar I’d been so accustomed to ingesting. My body was jumping right in to healing mode and though it feels crappy, good things really are happening. I just have to see it through and not give up at the first sign of discomfort.
Another word on not giving up — people around you who do not see the importance of what you feel you need to do for your body may not understand, and may even hinder you. This is why it is super important to have your “why” firmly decided in your mind before embarking on something like this. Because the temptation will come to give up, and you will most certainly have people around you that say that what you’re doing is too extreme or not necessary. Just remember, though, when you do get through it successfully, you will feel amazing and you’ll be so glad you stuck with it!
