Feeling The Difference...

So I never bought into all that mumbo jumbo about sugar being the devil and making us all feel worse without us realizing it... until now.

I've been off Sugar, Alcohol, Caffeine, Gluten and Animal Products for a week now and I feel completely different.  Seriously.  I'm not going to get all cliche and say it's "like the wool has been pulled from my eyes"... but I feel like a new person.

I have more energy even without caffeine or sugar... I get more done... I feel better.  Of course a lot of it is probably that I'm not as hung over... eating more vitamins and actually putting real food in my mouth instead of the crap I was eating before... even my attempts at eating healthy were laden with sugar and I still drank soda daily. 

Yes, I've seen some negative aspects of this cleanse- my skin is breaking out like crazy... and my digestive system is confused by the new diet I think.... but they're minimal in comparison to how I feel right now. 

It's like I'm on meth.  A veggie high that still fucks with your skin.  2 weeks to go.


  1. I hear that a lot of people experience breakouts when they are detoxing. Supposedly it'll run its course. I'm with you, though. My body and mind both feel better on this kind of diet. I've been riding a month-long caffeine high thanks to rehearsals and the resulting not enough sleep. I look forward to weening off it soon.
