To deduce sugar just cut out processed foods and eat heaps of freshly prepared salads and veggies. If you fill up on the good stuff you don’t crave the ‘naughty’ foods so much.

I started with increasing water. For couple of weeks I focused on drinking 2 glasses of water first thing in the morning and “clean” breakfast (for me it is eggs, avo, spinach, zuccini etc) Cutting out obvious junk. Drinking few more glasses of water during the day. Replacing coffee with green tea. After that eliminated dairy, wheat. Eating leafy greens with every meal.
The bloat and joint pain is gone. Now I have one coffee per day, occasional sweets and sometimes slice of good bread with breakfast. I fast often too. Dinner is around 6, breakfast not until 9-10am, often I dont eat dinner at all.

Did you follow a particular plan? Is there a book or anything that you used as a guide?

I looked into keto/ paleo. Paleo way website has great recipes. They are all wheat, dairy free. I loosely followed that. Heal book by Pete evans is pretty good. I have his book eat your greens too and it has meat free ideas. If you can see past his crazy I highly recommend both books to start.
I focused on water and thinking before eating. Fasting makes a big difference. I started with goal of not eating after 6pm and not before 9am. Water only. Made sure each breakfast was delicious, green and with eggs. Now I have daily coffee, occasional sugar, alcohol once a week. etc. I just make sure I keep track of my food and water. I fast more and try to make food count if that makes sense? I don’t want to undo my hard work with a random, poor quality junk.
There is a lot of information out there. For me that approach works best.

I went on a 4 week, 4 litres of water a day, lots of pineapple, and turmeric and pepper meals (pepper activates turmeric) pickled garlic, a lot of ginger in my food. Orange and ginger and carrot juices. Lentils and salmon.
Within four weeks my Cronic back pain and knee pain was gone.
I now routinely eat these foods and continued the diet with a less strict approach and my body has been healthier than ever.

No alcohol, dairy, coffee, sugar just leafy greens and veg protein only small portions every third day. Try to go for 2-4 weeks then you can reintroduce coffee or one glass of alcohol a week.

Did you notice any improvement to your skin? Mine is dull with premature lines so I’m hoping to address this with a diet overhaul...

I lost weight, had tons more energy to exercise more which then got me drinking 2litres of water a day and exercising 8 times a week. The toxins leave your skin through sweat so yes great improvement to skin and my sleep is amazing. It’s my lifestyle now I won’t ever go back. I don’t have old people’s issues and I’m 47. I’m fitter and healthier than my 20s. Inflammation causes disease we are not meant to eat an inflammatory diet. I also fast regularly.
