I want to begin by letting you guys know how supportive the emails that you sent were. I enjoyed reading them and appreciated the information, encouragement and support.
I have been actually doing the challenge for 2 weeks (I got a late start.). I had no problem or withdrawal issues by giving up grains or dairy. It felt pretty seamless in my life to begin this way of eating.
The first thing I noticed was that I did not feel hungry all day like I usually did. There were times when my head wanted something to eat and I usually grabbed a handful of nuts or an apple, but I didn’t think about food all day. I also noticed that I slept better and more soundly. I felt physically good and had a good amount of energy during the day.
I lost about 3 pounds so far and although it isn’t a great deal of weight, I will take it. I find the concept of eating this way very interesting and plan to continue.
I noticed this Fourth of July weekend when I ate foods that I haven’t had in weeks and had an alcoholic beverage that I didn’t feel as well and actually didn’t sleep as well. I am back on track today and I guess the real test will come when I go for my physical in August.
Thanks for sharing this program and all of the great information you have sent!
