This afternoon Miranda texted me with a question about her new diet.
Question: I have enjoyed a heaping portion of Primal approved foods, yet my body still feels like it needs something. Normally I would eat a snack, but I don’t feel hungry at all. Could this be sugar withdrawal?
Answer: Yes. You are probably experiencing sugar withdrawal. It takes a good three weeks for your body to get accustomed to all the changes in your diet. If I were to offer an alternative to a sugary substance, I would recommend herbal tea. There are some fruit flavored herbal teas that offer great flavor without adding any carbs or sweeteners to your diet. You can purchase herbal tea at your local supermarket or opt for the loose leaf tea options at a specialty shop.
