I adhered to my vegan detox 14-day cleanse 75-80% of the time, and I feel pretty damn good about it.
I made a choice not to abandon my few scheduled Dine LA meals (though I ended up regretting it once, because my stomach had grown unaccustomed to so much rich food), and to not quit soda cold turkey.
I come out on the other side having drawn this conclusion: my health and fitness guy put me through this vegan hell so that whatever food restrictions and dietary advisement he gave me going forth would seem like a cakewalk (“Dairy substitutes? No problem, I ate kale every day for two weeks!” “Limited grains, and only the kind you have to get used to the taste of? Easy, I drank juice for breakfast for 14 days!”)
I’m actually excited heading into my first week of changed lifestyle eating. I had to plan out all of my meals in advance (I love making lists!) and three nights this week, I get to spend 45 minutes in the kitchen with my favorite person making - and enjoying - healthy means together. SWEET.
Check back with me next week after I remove soda completely. I’m fearful…
