At this point, 75 days in, I can honestly say that I don’t feel all that deprived. I feel like I’m on the road to good health.
The only difficult part of sticking on the diet for me is the rest of the world! I can’t leave the house without having garbage shoved in my face – advertisements, fast food joints, the entire grocery minus the perimeter :p Friends making shitty comments, all of that. If it were just up to me, I would be fine just making my veggies and eating at home…I start feeling deprived when I see others having what I can’t have. It’s just a mindset. Sugar isn’t even that tasty, it’s just a drug, you know? It’s good because it gives you a hit and it’s sweet.
Sure, I look forward to the day that I can go out to eat occasionally or have a piece of fruit, but right now, the biggest pain in my ass is just dealing with society and society’s inability to let someone be healthy in peace :p
