    Interesting! I did the same in April. I love good too much to be that strict on a regular basis, and also didn’t see any dramatic effects, but it was interesting and challenging. What is a food sensitivity test?

      It’s so draining right? Passing on the freshly baked bread was torture. The food sensitivity test is a blood test that measures your reaction to 96 different foods. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but I’ll be pulling those foods out (like eggs, avocado, strawberries) to see if it makes a difference, because like you, I didn’t feel 100% amazing after the month was up.

    I think what you are doing is awesome! I mean, I couldn’t do it, but it’s really inspirational, and these are nice bits of nutrition nuggets to keep in the back of my mind when I’m making meal choices. On another note, I don’t think you should be so hard on yourself about caring what other people think. Most people do. We are social beings and want other folks to want to be social with us, so oftentimes you just can’t help caring what other people think of you. I say, if you’re loving it, keep it up! Continue to be a messenger (not to be confused with a missionary) and surround yourself with supportive people. You may continue to annoy people, but chances are, those aren’t the people you actually want or need to be social with anyway.

      Thank you for the support and your kind words Ivy! You are absolutely right. It’s our nature to care and seek approval, and it’s not always easy when you make unconventional choices. That said, I have no intention of stopping and I’m having a great time working on something that I’ve always wanted to do!

    […] Food was my first challenge, and a topic that has long intrigued and conflicted me. Warm chocolate croissants, Margherita pizza, apple pie with vanilla ice cream – that’s my heaven. I should be able to enjoy these things. But having spent the better part of the past year researching and experimenting with nutrition and supplements, there’s no denying that food’s effect on the body are powerful and noticeable. I function better – I’m nicer, sharper, calmer, happier and allergy-free – when when I adhere to a diet that consists of colorful vegetables, healthy fats, high quality protein and lots of water (90% of the time, I do indulge on occasion). And as this process evolves, I’d like to think that my body and my brain will thank me for the investment, ten, twenty, and fifty years from now. […]
