I like fruit. I've never been a fruit eater preferring to get my carbohydrates in a simpler form...white bread, pasta, sugar. I could never develop a taste for it...until now. Yay Whole 30.
Eating like crap for a few days really did lower my immune system. I was reading "It Starts With Food" last night and it turns out that it CAN happen. Shit.
Crap tastes like...well...crap. The food we ate on the road (mainly McDonalds) not only didn't appeal to me when I thought about it, it mainly tasted like salt, chemicals, and cardboard.
Eating sugar for a brief period did not make me lose my mind AND it did not wake my beast. If I'm honest, it didn't even taste that good. I mean...it was good...but when I weigh all the bad stuff with a little bit of taste...it just wasn't worth it. I'm also not craving it. Hmmm..,
I guess I thought that by eating garbage I would undo all the good I had done and go right back to my old habits. Not true at all. If anything, I craved the good habits I had cultivated and wanted to get back to them as soon as possible.
So to those of you just getting started, hang in there for at least two weeks. Apparently our bodies are smarter than we are...
