7/8/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 9. July 2012 05:24

If you have been following the 'clean eating' philosophy that I've described in my blog over the last 2 weeks(ok, the chocolate isn't exactly  on target with the plan, but remember, I told you,  chocolate was the issue I'm still actively working on), you may be seeing some changes in your body.  You may already be noticing a sensitivity to the taste of salt, and more precisely, how much excessive salt is used in canned soups, pre-packaged snacks/foods, and drive thru fast food.  For example, when you first think of having almonds(previous to changing your eating plan), you may never have chosen the unsalted, roasted kinds.  But now...delicious!

One negative( and yes, embarrassing) side effect of changing over to 'clean eating' is- more than normal gas.  This is due to eating more fruits and veggies.  It takes a bit of time ( and some Tums or Gas X) for the digestive tract to stabilize.  Try eating yogurt with probotics, or a colon probotic supplement.  I'm confident though, that longterm, this condition will improve and the benefits from increased vitamins and fiber will improve your overall health!
