I know I’ve said it many times, but I am so so happy with all the 21DSD results! Everyone lost weight and inches and saw many other benefits as well. I hope you all are transitioning to a nutrition plan that can work for you long term.
It was REALLY difficult to pick a winner and I really enjoyed looking through all the results you all sent. Reading about your journey and the changes you saw through the 21 days was really amazing and inspiring.
One person’s story in particular really stood out to me. So here is a brief version of her story…..
About a month before our challenge started she had been diagnosed as borderline diabetic and put on the prescription Metformin to regulate her blood sugar. She also committed to this challenge despite the fact that she would be going through surgery on the very first day of the detox. She felt pretty bad during the first 4 days, but she stuck with the detox even through her recovery process when I’m sure many of us would have given up (myself included). By day 5, she was back in the gym post surgery, had stopped taking the Metformin and was feeling amazing. In her email she sent she said;
“After that everything just started falling into place. I just kept having amazing days where I felt better than I have in, well, maybe ever. I also had the best week I’ve ever had at CrossFit.”
Feeling better than you ever had in your whole life is pretty awesome. And going from a diagnosis of pre-diabetic to regulating your own blood sugar successfully by eating the right foods is amazing. You just can’t argue with those results.
A few more quotes from her email that I thought were great;
“I have never given up artificial sweeteners before. It has been eye opening. I never thought I’d ever be happy not having Splenda. I think Splenda was keeping me from really tasting food. Things that don’t normally taste good to me, taste good now. I’m amazed!”
“There are so many more awesome things that have happened since I started eating this way and they include:
Learning how to chop things
Learning how to cook healthier and better
Learning about why certain oils are bad to cook with and which ones are good to use
I lost 2 inches
I lost 11.3 lbs
My clothes are getting lose
I kicked my Diet Coke habit
I kicked my Splenda habit
I can drink black coffee now….I never thought this would happen
I’ve had some amazing food
I love shopping at Whole Foods now”
