Wheat Belly 10 Day Detox Day 6 10/31/16
Tuesday, November 01, 2016
Tiredness was better today thankfully. I actually have energy. Doing a StepBet challenge which ends on Tuesday so concentrating on getting these last two days in. I have been doing it for about 6 weeks and I am not going to blow it now just because of not eating grains.
I cannot believe I am halfway through the 10 day detox and quite proud that I have made it this far. Usually after a couple of days I am giving up. But last night I was close. I wanted to give up. Scale was up a bit and that is discouraging. The book (and on facebook group page)has testimonies of people who when doing this detox lost 6, 7, 8 pounds. I had lost 4 and now 2 are back on. I know...the scale fluctuates and you shouldn't weigh yourself everyday. But I am a daily weigher. Always have been and won't be changing anytime soon.
I find I am snacking again at night. And not because I am hungry. I want something sweet (hence the figs) and nothing will satisfy me. But I am afraid if I eat something sweet I will want to abandon the detox and keep eating. I did buy cream cheese to make the Fat Busters the WB book has different recipes for. A lot of people on the WB facebook page keep talking about how good they are so I have to at least try them. I have been holding off on making them because as just stated...once I start.....
What I ate:
B: Beef stew (got some weird looks from DH when he saw me eating this for breakfast lol); coffee with heavy cream
L: WB Deep Dish pizza; lettuce with walnuts, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
D: ham; broccolini; peas with kerrygold butter
Sns: Butternut Ginger Snap smoothie; coffee with heavy cream; 2 deviled eggs; 3 figs; raw almonds
Decided after eating the WB pizza twice I think I will be tossing it. Was going to suck it up and eat the remaining two servings but can't do it. I hate to be wasteful but DH will not eat it either so tossing it.
