Far out it’s going to be difficult. BUT I CAN DO IT.
I can not eat any added sugar
Or gluten (no grains at all actually, regardless of if they’re gluten-y!)
Or alcohol (Weh Rekordelig I’ll miss youuuuuu)
for 30 days.
Like. ONLY proper, organic, sustainable meat.
And vegetables (and fruit, and some nuts and good oils and stuff). And that’s it.
But I can do this, not a problem.
The hardest part (apart from having MAKE THINGS) is having to turn offers from people down. I feel so awkward when people are like “come for dinner” or “let’s go out” and I’m like… sure… but I probably can’t eat anything you’re eating.
Also working at Donut King. Because there is not a SINGLE THING that I can eat/drink in that store. NOT. A. THING. Which is pretty crazy when you think about.
Lol, prepare for some food related vents.
Also, if you spam delicious looking food, I may have to temporarily unfollow you :P
This sounds really interesting! I am a bit confused though - like I can see why no sugar, and cutting out overly starchy carbohydrates, and easily why no junk food or alcohol. But why no legumes? Aren’t lentils meant to be like super healthy? And Quinoa is a seed, not a grain and meant to be quite good for you. Can you have caffeine? (Tea, coffee, etc.)
Is this like a 30 day cleanse and then get back to your life (but hopefully you won’t want bad stuff) or it meant to be like a 30 day trial and then stick with it afterwards?
Sorry for all the questions I just can’t work out where they are coming from with some of the stuff. But it’s only a month, so I’m sure you will not die from lack of lentils :P
Anyway, good luck with it!
Thanks Liz! I don’t mind the questions :)

There are definitely ‘good’ things that are being cut out, I’m aware. I’m not entirely sure specifically why, but I just figure that for a proper ‘reset’ it’s necessary to forgo things that are usually good, for a more rapid (aka, just 30 days) change.
It’s a ‘just 30 days’ kind of thing, but with a ‘hopefully you won’t want bad stuff afterwards’ kind of thing. At least, that’s what it is to me. Definitely going back on grains and dairy afterwards (but gradually :D)
The real trick is keeping up my calories, it’s going to be really easy to accidentally eat way under my proper 1200 calories if i’m only eating certain portions of vegetables and meat. I’m going to get back into tracking them, so that I can make sure I’m eating enough.
I’m still unsure if I’m allowed to have salt and pepper. And as I start thinking of what meals to prepare today, I’m concerned! I must look into quinoa as well :D
