As many of you know I’m in the middle of my Detox/Purification Program (day 8). I had planned on blogging before this but we’ve been a little crazy around the office. While it hasn’t been easy, I’m actually doing better than I anticipated. My energy levels have high, I’m going to the bathroom normally, and my cravings, while there, are subsiding more each day.
For those who don’t know, the eating portion of the program goes like this:
I can eat as many fruit and vegetables as I like.
I drink two smoothies a day made with fruit, vegetables, SP Complete, and a tsp of fish oil.
I can have 1/2 cup brown rice or lentils per day.
Starting day eleven I’ll add 3 oz of chicken or fish, 2-4 servings per day.
I haven’t been hungry. One thing that I have noticed that I didn’t expect is that by forcing me to read food labels, I am discovering that food that I was previously eating that I thought I was healthy really wasn’t – lots of additives that didn’t need to be there. When I resume full on eating after the program I definitely know what to start eating again and what to stay away from.
