A year ago I was told my entire diet had to change. No more processed foods, no more veggies that I loved and much more.
As I look back, I am amazed at the turn around I have made and how much healthier I am! I can run long distances, I have tons of energy and I eat better than I ever have in my entire life. Sure, it was hard at first, but it has turned into a blessing.
Granted I wish I could eliminate the fact my throat could close up if I eat something I'm allergic to and I wish I could eat all veggies, fruits, nuts and beans, but I don't miss my old way of eating at all. No longing or desire to eat some Doritos or a huge sundae.
All in all, something that was negative has turned out to be a positive in more ways than one.
