I survived the #Whole30! Here’s how I did it, and how it changed me for the better.

I’m one of those people who can’t stop at just one bit of chocolate. How I envy the discipline of those people that just take an elegant mouse-like nibble, a normal plate portion, go out and “just have one”. But me? I’m an absolute in-or-out, all guns blazing, stuff my face, just come out of… Read More I survived the #Whole30! Here’s how I did it, and how it changed me for the better.

This is because… It can increase anxiety: Caffeine can… Read More I gave up coffee to see if it had an impact on my sex drive. Here’s what I found….
