      For those of you who have transitioned to full compliance, how long did it take for it to feel normal?

      Great question!

      It’s going to be different for everyone, depending on their food history and what they’re currently doing now [food, exercise, mindset, etc.].

      Zane was strict when he started, and the detox symptoms/struggles lasted about 3 solid weeks. My detox was a little different — I eased into things, so my detox symptoms/struggles were kind of all over the place and would come and go.

      What I can tell you [personally] is that I never got back to my “old normal”. I now feel a “NEW normal” which is sooooo much better than anything I have ever felt!

      One crazy thing that I found when transitioning is that since I eliminated so many things at the same time, [nicotine, caffeine, meat, dairy, refined sugar, oils, and grains, etc.] I didn’t know what I was truly craving at one time. All of it was just rolled in together in one big detox. I knew I was craving something, but wasn’t sure exactly what it was… so before I figured that out I just ate some healthy plant food and the craving went away. 😉

      My new normal started happening about 3-4 weeks after my transition and constantly got better and better the following months… and once that started happening I knew I wasn’t going back to the old normal. Currently, I just feel normal… but if I experienced what I feel right now 4 years ago, I’m sure it would feel like a high. I just feel great… all the time. 🙂

      Thanks for this thread. Great to know in 3-4 weeks the Detox cravings should pass.
