I did it. I survived. For two weeks, anyway. As a recap, the last two weeks meant no dairy, no gluten, no soy, no eggs, no corn, no peanuts, and no artificial sweeteners. To be honest, it really wasn’t that bad. Considering I already eat pretty healthy, I didn’t miss a lot of things. It definitely helped… Continue reading The Virgin Diet: End of Cycle 1

But over the last few years I’ve really come to understand that weightloss and being healthy is a life-long change, not… Continue reading That Low GI Life
New month, new obsessions!
