Hello! I have hit day 3 of Dr. Gundry’s Plant Paradox Program and feel all sorts of different. First of all, I lost 5.6lbs within these three days, so that’s exciting! I am mood swingy… one moment I feel great, and the next I feel icky. That’s definitely my body going through withdrawals. I feel like I have more energy though… I woke up at 6:30 am without an alarm and just sprung out of bed! I think I’m not having extreme withdrawals because I was eating Paleo before this. I started this blog/Instagram to hold myself accountable and keep going. (Geez I do sound mood swingy up there)
Some background on me… I am 21 years old, I am getting married to the love of my life in a year, I just graduated with a degree in Digital Journalism and I’m a Social Media Coordinator. I did hardcore Paleo two years ago and lost 30lbs. I gained it all back because I kept cheating and going on and off it. Although I was eating “good,” I wasn’t losing weight and keeping it off and I had horrible digestive issues. My Mom and Dad introduced me to Dr. Gundry’s book, “The Plant Paradox,” and I was instantly hooked! I felt like Dr. Gundry knew me. I started the diet (I like to call it “lifestyle”) the next day.
So, it’s day three and I feel pretty good. My face is breaking out from the diet change but that should go away soon. I am less bloated and losing weight so quickly! I’m having fun creating new meals and going out of my comfort zone by eating new foods.
Food… It was super hard for me to stomach that grocery bill. $85 there… $125 there. Doesn’t seem like I bought that much but the quality was there! Grass fed/finished, pasture-raised, organic…mmm!
My mom said a great thing, “your grocery bill will be more but you’ll save on medical bills in the future.” She couldn’t be more right.
Anyway, I’m excited to start this journey and I hope many of you follow along for the ride. My website is a work in progress, right now, but follow along my daily life on Instagram!
