Maybe...don't focus on what you're giving up. Just look at what you're gaining. :) By allowing your body to use its own stores for food, you are cleansing yourself of every icky thing you've ever given it. You're "starting over." And that can be pretty intimidating, and the fast can be difficult, but it's all part of the journey towards a happier and healthier future. It's necessary if you are to seek the highest vision of yourself. If you are unhappy eating processed foods, and it seems like you are, then no need to mourn them. You can learn to detach yourself from your senses and retrain your brain to desire the healthy stuff.
My personal issue is with cheese. I f**king love cheese. But I don't want it in my body. So everytime I have a thought about cheese, especially while on the fast, I redirect my thoughts to apples, or nuts. If I keep doing this, I will eventually forget all about the appeal of cheese because I have trained myself to think and like different things. And I don't tell myself, "I'm never eating cheese again," because that is extreme. I don't know what the future holds. I know I like cheese, so rather then swearing off cheese for life I will just change what I like. I will fixate on things like apples and nuts and fresh greens for breaking a fast rather then cheesy pizza like I did two nights ago. And you know, that pizza might have tasted goooood going in, but my taste buds lied to me. My stomach hated what I gave it and made me suffer for eating what I did, no matter how it tasted. You just gotta go by your gut...
Human beings are highly trainable creatures in mind and body... we can do this. :)
