I’m sleeping incredibly well – which is a surprise because I thought I always slept well! I’m mostly waking up really well, and craving, of all things – water!
I thought I was nuts or imagining it, actually, but yesterday spent some time with a girlfriend who reported the same thing!
She was inspired last week to try the sugar-free way as well, and she’s dumbstruck with the results! I’m surprised I influenced her to sugar-free actually, because I’ve never been able to persuade her to do anything else (not that I try to persuade friends, really, I don’t think…? :)). For example, she still weighs herself, the legacy of the many diets she’s done, like most women.
So her greatest delight is that in just the few days she’s been doing it, she’s lost 3.5kg – that’s about 8 pounds. She is *thrilled*! Have I lost weight, I think so, I’m noticing a change in the way my clothing fits, but it’s a long time since I’ve been on scales and have no intention of acquiring that hard-to-break habit again! Weight loss is not my goal, it’s a side effect – getting my brain and my motivation and energy back is my goal – so far, so good.
Another side effect I’m thrilled about though is that my youngest daughter has decided to try this way of eating as well! As a student of TCM, she’s been fascinated about the biology information and she’s extrapolated that info into energetics – so she’s experimenting with her won body – what else does one do? LOL. She’s a typical not-looking-after-herself student, and the detox is goign hard. She doesn’t like tapping so she’d whiteknuckling through it, reporting that she feels ‘odd’, noticing that her back, head and knees are sore. Knees? Yep, the kidney meridian runs through the knees, so clearly her kidneys are kicking up and doing some great blood cleaning!
What else? Oh yes – I made one of my favourite meals the other night, roast garlic chicken with roast veges (I’m a simple girl :)) Dished up my normal amount, which was not huge anyway. And couldn’t finish it. Seems my appetite regulation has kicked back in, on cue, just like it’s supposed to when you give up sugar.
I’m so impressed with the changes I’m feeling during this process, that I think I’ll run a 30 day program supported-by-EFt and live calls, in January. If you’re interested, shoot me an email….
