You might be missing your favorite 'old' foods, or still getting used to some strange 'new' foods.
Around three weeks I start to get the hang of it:
- having the right foods in the house,
- knowing what I can and can't eat,
- learning that 'cheating' makes me feel bleh (be it bloated or uncomfortable)
By three weeks, I am more into the groove and have a food routine that works and the 'cravings' for the forbidden foods star to go away....
But whatever it is, don't beat yourself up. The best advice I ever had was to see a change towards healthy eating as adding things rather than taking away. For example adding a green smoothie every morning. This can be your only step... because once you start adding the healthy stuff, there becomes less room for the not so healthy stuff, and it even becomes less attractive because the healthy stuff makes you feel better.
It sounds strange, but it is true - the more healthy foods you eat, the more your body starts to crave them. You and your body make a great team!
So whatever your current diet is, don't stress and worry, but try to add one extra healthy thing to your eating routine this week... and see how you feel!
