Day 21 - Feeling the Pressure

One of the most challenging parts of the Challenge for some people may be relaying to others what exactly it is that you are doing. Once you explain this, you may meet with all kinds of objections and even insults. Over the years, I’ve had so many clients, subscribers and friends nearly throw in the towel because of the pressure they felt from others. This is precisely why I’ve started this online community so that people can share their experiences with people who understand what they’re going through — a support network when nobody else will support them.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I apologize for not keeping you more up-to-date with what I’ve been eating. Over the past week, I’ve been adding more seed grains. That would be grains like quinoa and buckwheat. Today, I added barley — a glutenous grain. So far, all is well with both, but I did notice with quinoa especially that I had some difficulty controlling myself. Then again, it was a fairly light dinner for me of wild caught low mercury salmon, quinoa and sautéed spinach.

Speaking of spinach, I took an interesting series of pictures the other day at the local supermarket. It underscores everything we have been discussing throughout this Challenge. Since it’s the off season for many leafy vegetables, I had to buy some frozen veggies to make up the difference. I walked and walked and it was only at the very end of the 3rd aisle, that I found frozen veggies and less than half of those were organic. One entire side of an aisle was dedicated to ice cream and the side of another aisle was all dessert. Still another side and a half were frozen dinners and other not foods. In light of this, do you think that meat and fat are really the culprits in the American diet? Seriously, somebody is eating all this frozen stuff.
