I’ve been thinking a lot about post-detox eating. As you can guess, cookies are on the menu, but besides the cravings I wonder how it will be. I’ve been warned that eating carbs again will make me bloat like none other! I’m not totally worried that it will be that bad, I assume it would be water weight. After a few days of eating right but including carbs I could get back to where I’m losing again. I’m actually interested to know how the first indulgence will go. Will I think even my favorite cookies are too sweet? Will I only want to eat one? (Doubtful) Will I not be able to eat as much carby food at first? I am very excited for carbs but I need to tread lightly at first. Then I can dive-in.
Don’t get me wrong though, I DO NOT plan on falling off the wagon completely. I will have my treats and social non-dieting weekends, enjoy everything. Then every other day of the week I will check my carbs, check my calories, and make sure that I’m still losing at a slow and steady pace. I have a long way to go and I will get there. The sugar detox is a nice booster and I will take a lot that I learned with me. But it’s not sustainable for a long period of time, at least for me. I will try my best to eat low carb any day I’m not in a social situation or celebrating little wins. I really believe in the calories in versus calories out and that’s what I’m going to stick to!
On to day 17.
