So make sure it tastes perfect. Dont worry about calories, forget you diet and really put your heart and soul into this pulled pork. Don’t beat yourself up for tasting it. Heck, eat a whole pound! Its food, with loved ones. Enjoy it 100%
I appreciate the sentiment Lauri, I do. And normally, I’d join right on that wagon. However, the whole point of Phase 1 of this diet (which only lasts 2 weeks) is to reset your body’s blood sugar and cravings for sugar. This is especially important for me because I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which makes me feel hungry all the time AND makes me crave sugar because I am very resistant to insulin. Tomorrow will be day 6, and making it this far has been hard for me as far as temptations go. I know myself and if I give in once it almost turns into, “Oh what the heck I’ll eat 5 more and start over tomorrow.” And, I really don’t want to do 6 extra days of Phase 1. So, I’m counting myself out on this and I plan on making it again while I’m home during Phase 2. Phase 2 I’m going to allow myself one cheat day a week with the choice of 2 small cheats or one medium/slightly large one. So on that day, I’ll have the pulled pork, but without the bread I can’t have.
I really appreciate everyone’s support and cheering me on throughout this. Means more than I thought it would since when my family cheers me on I just feel fat.
