Sugar/Dairy Fast


Hello fitness friends!  Sorry for the delay in posts- busy week!

I am embarking on a month of no sugar and no dairy in support of our fabulous trainer Kristen, from the main club. I did a siugar fast for 45 days in 2007 and let me tell you what- it was fabulous!! The first week is the hardest as your body rids itself of toxins caused by sugar intake. Since it’s a drug, you go through withdrawl symptoms like headaches, mood swings and cravings. After about 10 days, it becomes much easier as your body cleanses and heals itself. After 21 days, you will crave it no longer and should you ingest it, you will see what it truly does to your body. It’s nasty business. A lot of us have accepted living in a state of unwellness without even knowing it.

Milk, as you might know frompersonal experience, can really be a problem. As you age, you ability to digest and process lactose decreases. This can cause rashes on skin, exema, acne, IBS, digestive problems, and upset tummy. No fun. Milk can also supress your immune system and in some cases can act as inflamatory in your body, slowing down healing processes.

So, the challenge is on! Email me or leave a comment for more details of meal ideas and restricted items. If you decide to join in, there will be a special reward for all who make it to the end!!  Good luck!!

    • Awesome!! Pick your start date! You can sub most dairy for soy and all fruit is fair game! Sugar free items are not on the allowed list….:0(
      If you’d like, you can keep an online food journal at Livestrong.com to make sure you’re getting enough calcium and vitamin D from the foods you are eating. It’s going to be awesome!! Way to go girl!!
