Udi has asked me to take the 14 day Gluten Free challenge. I have decided to give it a try.
Why am I doing this?
Motivation #1: I want to see if I can do it. I have never gone on any kind of diet. I have always believed that if you control portions, eat your fruits and veggies and stay active (Playing volleyball a couple days a week counts right?) you do not have to go on a diet. BUT as I get older I am starting to notice that I am going to have to do a little more than that if I really want to stay in shape. So since I have never tried to stick to any kind of “diet” I think I would like to see if I can.
Motivation #2: I want to see if I feel better. I get headaches more often than most people and I am curious to find out if changing my diet to gluten free will help? I also want to see if my body will feel better, and have more energy.
Motivation #3: I want to know what it is like. I have known many friends who are on gluten free diets. I really admire anyone that can be disciplined enough to stay on a diet. I have partly never tried a diet because I want to be able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want. I have been too scared to commit to a diet because I do not want to fail.
Motivation #4 I like to get free stuff. I must admit free stuff can be a little motivating. Udi is giving me free products and coupons for free products to help in my gluten free challenge.
I need your help…
I can not do this alone. I need your help. Here are some ways you can help me.
Help #1 Join me in the challenge and comment on how it is going for you. (Monday Oct 8th-Sunday October 21st)
Help #2 Leave some suggestions in the comments of food that I should eat during my challenge. Feel free to link to gluten free on Vitacost.
Help #3 Share links in the comments to recipes that are gluten free.
Help #4 In the comments give me some tips you have learned from any kind of diet not just gluten free.
I am going out of town this week so I will start my challenge on Monday October 8th- Sunday October 21st. I will blog about my progress if I am seeing feedback and interest from YOU!
If I look at this post in two days and have 5 comments or less I am NOT going to do the challenge. If you guys do not care I think it will break my heart and I will not be able to go through with the diet.
So I am putting it out there… DO YOU CARE?
