August 1 Reboot Day 8 Results

Results are what this fast is all about and at this point  it’s time to reveal some of the positive  physical changes that are taking place.  First of all I’ve lost 8 more pounds since starting the fast, 20 pounds in all since changing my eating habits in April.  The rosacea on my face has gone into remission and the excema on my left hand is clearing.  My knees are less stiff and painful but still hurt.  Sleep is much better, sound sleep versus waking every 2 to 3 hours.

The best result I think is the cleansing of my taste buds.  Fat, salt and sugar tend to overpower the flavor of food, masking it’s taste.  Usually it takes 2 weeks to clear the palate so that you can experience and appreciate the flavor of fresh vegetables and fruit.  I have a heightened experience of taste now that I didn’t have before.  Fresh corn unslathered, sun ripened tomatoes, sweet cucumbers, peaches that taste almost perfumed and mint from the backyard are incredibly delicious and I’m not craving fat, sugar and salt either.   The juices made from these gifts of nature are delicious and satisfying.  Waxing poetic over vegetables and fruit, a great unexpected outcome!
