We had already made a lot of dietary changes over the last few years.

I had already stopped drinking caffeine, artificial sweeteners, and most processed foods.

I've made it the full thirty days, and here's my takeaway.

People talked about increased energy, clearer skin, and fewer headaches.

Truth be told, I was a little skeptical because anything that sounds like a cure-all is usually just snake oil, but I was excited about challenging myself to eat healthier and to break some bad habits.

I mentioned at the beginning of this month that I was doing the Whole 30 challenge.

Sharing many of the principles of the Paleo diet, this eating plan eschews grains, dairy, and sugar for 30 days.

An average 12-ounce soda has 10 teaspoons of sugar in it. That also doesn't take into account that sugar can be lurking in everything from your ketchup to your bacon and that there's mixed science on how the body processes different types of sugar (such as HFCS).

For me, this 30-day challenge put all of that into perspective by making me realize that I don't need any of those added sugar ingredients.What I ended up making was this: I began to see all of these whole foods as possibilities that I never saw before.I adapted recipes (once putting peaches in a turkey meatloaf) in ways I never would have considered before.Upon closer examination, I think I probably have a dairy sensitivity, but I wouldn't have made the connection until I eliminated dairy. Since I wasn't actively trying to lose weight, I didn't avoid the more calorie-dense foods that the Whole 30 people suggest avoiding if you want to see weight loss. I fully expected my weight to remain about where it was.I ate plenty of avocados, sweet potatoes, and fruit. I don't think that weight is a correlated indicator of health.I also realized that a meal didn't have to be a meat with two sides as I'd been conditioned to think.
