My August Diet

So here’s the game plan for August:  I’m going to do the intermittent fasting from 11AM-7PM Monday through Saturday, giving my body a day to rest on Sunday.  I’m cutting out refined sugar including artificial sweeteners and alcohol for the next 31 days.  I’m giving myself a 31-day window because I believe that small goals are more attainable.

I know that hard core Atkins, Keto, and Paleo folks would tell me to cut out all forms of carbs as well, but I draw the line at refined sugar….for now.  I will do a compromise and switch to whole wheat pasta, brown rice, and Ezekiel bread for the white stuff, but let’s not get crazy here.  This is my experiment so I get to make the rules.

Allowed Foods:

Meats, dairy, fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, coffee, tea, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, sprouted bread.

Not Allowed:

Alcohol, white sugar, brown sugar, artificial sweeteners, honey, maple syrup, agave, cake, pie, pastries, donuts, candy, energy bars, Kind Bars, Slim Fast shakes, chocolate, ice cream, sugary cereals, muffins

I’m curious to see how this is going to go.  I hope I can do this.
