Well, we finished week 1 of eliminating some ingredients from our diet. Wow! We already notice a difference on some things. The biggest difference has been our hunger. We are just not as hungry anymore....especially at night. Our night snacking came to a halt. Taking out high fructose corn syrup, which supposedly makes you more hungry, was the trick. We saved on our grocery bill this week. I did not come home with any processed snack foods like Graham crackers, Teddy Grahams, chips or fruity snacks. None of it and not one complaint from the family. I make our granola bars and I make breakfast for the family. If I don't have time to make breakfast then we will have plain Cheerios or oatmeal. Those are actually fun because I let them choose what can go in it like a bit of honey, dried fruit, or some brown sugar. These are real good changes for us. Now the next hurdle is switching to whole wheat everything. I like my white flour, bagels, white rice and pasta, etc. This will be a gradual change but I think we can do it. Go Donatini family!


  1. Awesome! Way to go! It is a very tough thing to do, but SO much easier when you have the support of each other. Good luck :)

  2. Just curious - when you say you make breakfast, what kinds of things do you make? Looking for ideas here. :)
