21 Day Sugar Detox – Get on it!

Regionals are over and I’m ready to do a little sugar detoxing.  With how much training I had been doing I had to ‘Dirty’ things up a little and add in quite a lot of white rice and oatmeal.  Why, you may ask?  Easy… Yams just don’t cut it in caloric density and I don’t have time (or stomach space) to eat the amount of food needed to sustain my muscle mass and energy level.  White rice and oats are two lower irritant foods I have dealt fine with in the past and high in glucose rather than fructose like fruit.

Using the principles I learned in CBL (refer to my post HERE how to Paleo-fy CBL) to increase my glycogen stores and I have to admit it paid off big time.  There was a point in time where I had totally depleted my stores, life sucked, training sucked and my overall performance took a severe dive! Surprisingly, I have read many a similar story from folks who jump on the Paleo Train and try to keep up their intensive CrossFit lives. Well, thankfully that degree of training is over for a while and I can get back to ‘normal’ eating (with a little red wine thrown in for pleasure).

Diane Sanfilippo from Balanced Bites has written an excellent program called “The 21 Day Sugar Detox”.  Many of you may think that I do not need to do a detox and you may be right but I’m going to do one anyway and tell you how it goes!  JOIN ME! I’m starting July 8th!

What I’m reading/trying

This book has been instrumental in getting my energy levels back with training. Whilst this is not Paleo, many of the principals can be adapted and still follow a very clean Paleo diet. Read my post on Paleo and Carb Back-loading HERE

About the Recipes

All the recipes you see on my site are made up by me, unless otherwise stated. I love to experiment in the kitchen and as you can see my photo's are not all fancy, they are usually taken with my phone just as I am about to dish up. These are real tried and true recipes that work, if they didn't I wouldn't post it. I hope you enjoy my cooking as much as I do.
