I've already posted here but though I'd officially introduce myself.
I plan to start SBD on Monday (family birthday party this weekend, so have to get that out of the way first).
I think I have a pretty good idea what I'm in for, as I've done a similar diet for health reasons before. Granted SBD (at least Phase 1) is even stricter, as I could eat fruits and nuts without limitations on my "health" diet.
One thing I want to avoid as much as possible are arteficial sweateners. I don't feel like they're healthy at all. SO my plan is to try without any sort of sweets, and if I really can not, have half a tea spoon of honey instead.
I need to stock up with veggies, allowed diary, meat and such...I'm very, very excited about this and it'll be a pleasure to be a part of this group, I hope to learn a lot from all of you!
