Your body will revolt when you don’t.
I learned this the hard way last night. After bowling league, Damien asked if we could get something to eat before going home. I should have gone with the first choice, Subway, but didn’t. We ended up at Taco John’s per my husband’s request and Damien’s final agreement.
One soft taco, some Potato Oles with nacho cheese and a little bit of soda later, we were on our way home.
Not so bad, right?
I’ve made a lot of changes to the way I eat in the last couple months. The biggest one is to cut almost all prepared foods out of my diet. My body has been happier with me, working better and feeling better. Losing weight is a bonus.
With these changes, I expect a bit of a reaction when I ‘splurge’ on prepared foods.
I was not prepared for the night ahead of me.
Every two hours, almost like clockwork, the bathroom was my friend.
My body was making quick work of disposing of the offending foods.
And I was not reacting well to this.
Twelve hours later, I feel much better. I treated myself to a small amount of greek yogurt with blueberries and strawberries. My body seems happy again.
The moral of the story: Years of eating processed crap and your body will mildly revolt when you introduce healthy, whole foods to it. Keep your body happy with healthy, whole foods on a regular basis and the one time you indulge in that nasty, processed crap your body will revolt in a way that will make you regret your momentary lapse in judgement.
