This is the last day of the first week of the challenge. Congratulations to everyone who are still powering through. It has definitely been a challenge. This next week will be a little bit more challenging. You may be going through different thoughts and emotions of why you are doing it. Some may have been doing it strictly for the prize. Others for pure health reasons. Whichever reason, in the end, you are disciplining yourself for a better way of life in regards to your nutrition. Hopefully, you are experiencing things that you are able to notice and remember. Processed foods are not the best for you! I love a quote from Bob Kincade - "Have you ever read the ingredients on the packaging of bread? I don't even know what half of that stuff is ."That's pretty scary coming from a heart surgeon. I guess the bottom line is "everything in moderation". We know that the consumption of processed sugars leads to the constant release of insulin in our system which leads to our bodies always storing. So if you are looking for a certain "look" then don't consume.If youre looking for optimal health than eat lean protein, fruit, and vegetables. No it's not easy But it is better.
For those still in it continue to keep accurate score. Check the board to make sure you are on track. Good luck.
