Prolly, bot not as much as you get from just diving in. Personally, and everyone is different, but I think flirting just prolongs the cravings and detox and not wanting to give things up. I dove right in and the only time I have eaten a nasty food (dairy) was when I was at a restaurant and they put cheese on the plain bean burrito that I ordered. Anyways, do what feels right to you. If you start with flirting, chances are you will start to feel good and want to feel even better. :)
Thanks, peasandlove, I guess I have really started further than flirting. I am in the process of eliminating all meat, dairy, and sugar. Only day 2!!! Thanks so much for your post. Its nice to know I am not alone and with friends who have "been there!!"
Flirting can be nice though ;) Everybody is different and thats why there are several ways to go...
Just do what fits you (your ways, character/body) best. There was just one post about someoene who said that for her slowly gradually is best because ortherways it dont stick... And I was vegetarian for a long time, than throw out milk from my diet and much much later cheese and everything else...
Im 2 weeks meat free and 3 hours dairy free. For me I'm finding it easier to eliminate 1 thing at a time. Dairy for me is going to be the hardest i think. I'm having a Soy Cappucino at breakfast and I LOVE it! The soy milk makes it taste nutty which is really good. Tonight I'll try my MILO with rice milk and see how I go.
In the beginning I used to go to stores and just spend a lot of time looking at the new foods, reading labels and looking for new vegetables etc etc It was great fun, a real exploration :) What ever you do, enjoy it!
