Alright, so we are finally about to be in a position, financially speaking, that I should be able to afford to really go "all in" as far as diet and supplements and all that.
I have made minor changes in the past that I've stuck with for the most part, but have had slips here and there. Like I do NOT drink milk anymore or use it in cereal. Actually I don't even EAT cereal anymore cause it makes me feel like crap. I have had the occasional soda, but after a long soda abstinence, see how it makes me feel, as well, which is not good at all! But other than that, being honest, I know I have a LOT of changes to make diet wise. I do at least hardly ever eat cake, cookies or anything like that anymore, which used to be a BIG vice of mine when I was significantly overweight. The last few days I have been very diligent in avoiding the bread as I get back into looking into these things- something else I cut back on but did not eliminate. I have not detoxed yet, as I am still nursing my 16 month old and did not want to adversely affect her by releasing so many toxins all at once. I was planning on weaning her closer to 2 when she won't really need milk anymore as I REFUSE to give her cow's milk as her pediatrician suggests. But I know that not cleaning up my diet is still doing us both a disservice and I am tired of making excuses, especially now that the financial one is out of the way.
So here's the thing - I KNOW if I finally take the time out to do the reading and research I will be motivated to make the right grocery choices and we are finally in a position to really do it and my partner is also on board with trying to eat whatever I cook for us as I am home and do all the meal prep and all that. He trusts me as I am the one always spending time looking into these things and I want to finally make the right choices and do what's best for my whole family. I've been putting it off for too long.
But where to begin reading? I see the recommended threads, but is there a good order to begin in? Or certain books I should invest in?
I don't need all the answers given right to me, just wondering if you all can help me find a good starting point, if possible. I've been reading a lot and seeing mentions of the Paleo diet, but having trouble finding threads that are more specific with all that entails, so I've been reading the past day or so about supplements I may need to look into in the next few weeks here for now.
