So my boyfriend and I were going to start a cleanse… We both really need it and went grocery shopping Friday night. Saturday was “the day”, we were eating vegetables and some fruit, and water…that’s it…by 3pm I was so angry and starving and he wasn’t doing too well either. We both decided this was far too drastic. WTF were we thinking!!???!!?? We agreed on a more balanced lifestyle and we would continue to do it together.
Moral of the story, if you are changing your eating habits DON’T GO DRASTIC! You will most likely be so miserable that you won’t stick with it. Start small. Cutting out fast food and soda for us is HUGE without much sacrifice! (and think of the $$ we’ll save!) We have 6 kids between us. Switching out wheat bread instead of white, exchange 1 or 2 of the sweet snacks we buy for popcorn, no soda options, more natural juices, more salad, they will eat it! You just have to provide it! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really have a problem with our kids eating sweets, I’m not that crazy with it. But, the healthy options should out-number the sweet options.
Trust me, our angry and hungry versions of ourselves are no good!
