Cura Romana Update – Six Months After The Program Finished

Thursday, August 4, 2011 by Amanda

After being pleasantly surprised that my body had handled a few excesses while on holiday, I found myself back in a daily routine although away from home still as we temporarily relocated to Wellington after the February earthquake. I proceeded to push the boundaries. It was like an old habit or mindset clicked in me and said it was OK to continue with the excesses.

After 3 weeks of this, I started to remember that it’s not only about the weight. My energy and inspiration were being hindered by my food and wine choices. Helped along by an earache, I realised that I wasn’t really listening to what my body needed. I was back in my ego saying “I can do whatever I want. Just watch me.”

Although I didn’t like what was happening, I seemed powerless to stop it. For about 8 weeks, I went through fits and starts of sticking to the foods my body likes and NOT. I started eating foods without testing them first and I found myself gradually putting on weight (almost 4kgs). During this time, I was very tired and grumpy. Eventually, I stopped to think and realised it was probably the wheat. I immediately went back to only eating foods I knew were OK and I lost 2 kgs in 2 days.

I have decided to do another program of Cura Romana to get down to my ideal weight and to really cement into place the benefits I received first time around. I also look forward to the cleansing, simplicity of the meals and clarity I experienced last time.

How do you notice when you are off track? What do you do to get back on track?
