I have stopped craving sugar, for the most part! I don't mean that when I see or smell cookies, I don't want them (I don't know if that will ever change). I mean that I am not needing something sweet for breakfast any more. I mean that I am not cranky any more about not having those sweets.
Also, I have so much more energy than I have had in a while. Being a student and being a busy one at that, I rarely have EXTRA energy. These last few days, I have felt hyper and energetic right until I crawl into bed.
Problems I ran into: days 3 and 4 SUCKED. I mean, all I wanted were carbs and sweets. I was lucky enough to have planned it on a good week where days 3 and 4 I could sit at home and be cranky. I recommend planning your first week wisely. Second, day 5 and 6 I didn't sleep at all. I am not sure why, maybe I was not used to all of the extra energy. NO SLEEP for two days. But, I am back to sleeping now and feel like a million bucks.
Best meals: Garlic-broccoli beef, 21dsd crackers, and almond flour pork chops!
Hints: Make sure to have your favorite teas on hand. Drinking tea really helps the cravings and gets you over that 3-4 day hump.
Keep plenty of your favorite 21 DSD friendly snacks on hand. If you get a craving, have a piece of that snack whether it be bacon, grapefruit, or the yummy green apple chips I found (in the photo above). Having a treat that fights the cravings is key, I found.
Do not walk through the bakery at the market... it is painful... ;)
Good luck on your detox efforts! I know I am really impressed by the program so far.
