  1. wow you are cutting so much out! Good luck but be careful all your sugar intake out all in one go. My friend did a no sugar detox and she went cold turkey and it was bad for the first couple of days (over all it was good!)

    • I know! I found myself very hungry after day 2. I’m making some substantial soups (that I will post this week), but if I feel I need a little sugar I have agave I can put in my tea. Thanks for your comment!
