So one of the things that I’ve always had problems with is eating healthy meals. I have a horrible, horrible sweet tooth and to make matters worse, I’m addicted to caffeine. This is compounded by a job that frequently sees me hitting up the vending machines for a “quick lunch” to get me through the day while I work at my desk. Ultimately, this is really bad for me. Since starting at my current employer, I’ve packed on 15 pounds, and that’s not cool.
I decided recently, that I want to clear out my system a bit, so I’m taking two weeks, starting this Sunday, during which I will be completely avoiding the following:
- refined sugars (especially high-fructose corn syrup)
- fried foods
No, I don’t intend to actually starve myself, or anything like that. But I do intend to do this for two weeks and see how I feel at the end of it. If it goes well, I’ll go through the rest of June, and probably keep going after that. Because I really need to.
