According to J.J. Smith, author of the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, “Ninety-five percent of people who lose weight on a fad diet gain it back in three to five years. So, you’re changing your eating habits for life, retraining your taste buds to desire and crave healthier foods!”
Yesterday was day four. It occurred to me today that I was able to make dinner for my family and not crave any of it! It wasn’t a fancy fare. I made hamburgers in the oven – my mother was visiting and said they were delicious. If she compliments anything it’s golden! When she said that, I realized that it never crossed my mind to have any. Instead, I ate roasted vegetables. They were cooked just right and the flavor was amazing.
Right now, steak and gravy is slow cooking in the oven and I am not craving it at all – even while smelling it. Why? Because I am not on a diet and I am changing my eating habits for life. Fourth day of the cleanse and I no longer desired sugar or fat. In fact, hamburgers seem a little gross to me at this point.
I feel liberated!
