Since I seek to cut down on the amount of sugar I consume, I’m also looking to cut back on gluten because wheat and other carbs turn to sugar. And I eat way too much sugar.
I’ve tried going “cold turkey.” It didn’t work.
Going from unhealthy eating one day to eating a completely clean diet the next just doesn’t work for me. I end up going overboard after a few days and eat a bunch of junk.
Over the course of several months, I plan to take small steps in the direction of change…
Step 1: Increasing my awareness of what I’m eating
Step 2: Replacing the gluten I’m eating with gluten-free equivalents
Step 3: Reducing the gluten-free processed foods I’m eating to a few days a week and replacing with more whole foods
Step 4: Reducing the gluten-free processed foods I’m eating to one day a week and replacing with more whole foods
Along the way, I’ll be publishing accountability posts on the blog. I hope you’ll follow along and hold me accountable!
Save Me From Gluten is monetized largely with Amazon links. Gluten-free food that doesn’t suck is nearly impossible to find all in one convenient place and lots of niche food companies have popped up that strive to make sugar-free living easier, so Amazon is my go-to place for stuff that fits in my new plan.
Over time, I want to eat a whole foods diet most of the time, at least 90% of the time so the processed stuff won’t be something I use as a crutch for years and years…I’m thinking months and months.
