Eating clean – A two day experiment

As I get older, I’m starting to notice how my body isn’t taking to certain foods the way it used to. Dairy and fried foods are the main culprits I’ve come to realize definitely don’t sit well but sugar rich foods, especially cheap baked goods, are likely to be added to a “why bother” list of things I won’t eat.

Yesterday, I ate how I usually eat when I plan out my meals. I had oatmeal with chia seeds and a banana for breakfast, chicken breast with roasted vegetables and a salad with beets and zucchini for lunch and turkey tacos for dinner. Result: felt great!

Today, I had McDonald’s for breakfast and lunch, a donut around 10:00am and a monster energy drink after lunch that I bought at a gas station where I filled up. I haven’t had dinner yet but pretty much no matter what I eat, it will be a better choice than everything else. Result: feel crappy, falling asleep at 3:00pm.

I need no further evidence that my diet needs improvement and that my body is definitely responding to what I eat as I get older. I’m not even enjoying eating poorly so it’s obviously time to address the issue.
