17 weeks and counting…

Seventeen weeks ago, I made a decision that turned into a lifestyle change. After being tired of the extreme bloat that accompanied any dairy meal or product I consumed, I decided to detox for a week. During this week I would only eat vegetation.

I felt my body needed a break and this was my attempt at giving it one. Well one week turned into two. Two into three. Before you know know it, I was 8 weeks in and not missing meat AT ALL. That is, until I heard someone mention fried fish. I then decided that I’d sparingly reincorporate seafood into my diet. What does “sparingly” look like?

That worked for me up until about 2 weeks ago when I decided to remove seafood from my diet again. I am now back to eating 100% plant based. Today makes 17 weeks since that first week.
