This is the story about how I changed my life by eating clean whole foods.

The Decision That Changed My Life!

Finally, I met my current boyfriend who was all about eating natural whole foods. He mentioned that the additives and preservatives that are in the foods I eat could be causing me to get toxic and was me to bloated and gain unnecessary weight. I kind of just took it lightly at first. But, then I started researching this on the web. I fould lots of information on how bad these additives and preservatives where for your body, and it is being sold to us everyday. Of course Fast food is obvious but, in our supermarkets? Bad for us? No way. Well, yes way!

It was then that I realized that the food that we buy at the regular supermarket is packed with chemicals and hormones. This is so bad for us but, they just keep selling it to us with the latest gimmick or whatever they can think up to sell us more food.

That is when I chose to eat clean. I said, no more chemicals. I started out slowly introducing myself to whole foods. I stopped using sweetener substitutes first, then I cut down on sugar, soda, coffee, bread, and dairy.

I started shopping at stores like Trader Joes and Whole Foods and most of my diet is organic vegetables, fruit, nuts, fish, some meat (no hormones and free range), very little bread, green tea, water, low dairy (almost none) and now I do the bulk of my shopping at these stores and just pick up a few things at the regular market. but, I really read the labels now.

I feel better than I ever have in my life! I don't ever get upset stomachs, heartburn, bloating and my allergies are almost non existent! I think it is because I cut way down on dairy products.

I am losing weight and I don't feel deprived at all. If I want something like chocolate, or some ice cream, I make it a special treat once in a while. But, I always make sure its organic! :))
