i'm an addict

On Tuesday I started the Whole 30. It's a detox where you don't eat grains, dairy or sugar for a month. I've been reading more and more about how much sugar is added to stuff, and goes by a different name on the label, that we don't even recognize. Researchers are saying they used to think it was fat that caused us to be unhealthy, but it's really all the added sugar that's in so many products at the grocery store. I just watched Fed Up, a documentary by Katie Couric, and it was really eye-opening.

If you're interested in doing the Whole 30, you can read the rules here. I'm only on Day 3, and I'm not going to lie, it's been hard. They say sugar is as addictive as cocaine, and I was definelty having sugar withdrawals today.

Hopefully after these 30 days, my cravings for sugar will go down. One can hope. I will keep you posted on my progress!
