So when you think of a cleanse what comes to your mind ? I usually think of drinking some green stuff 3 times a day and starving. When I found out this was a 21 day cleanse I thought wait I should just go on the show survivor and win a million dollars if I am going to starve myself. Then I got the documents and read through them. I realized that this cleanse was not about starving myself, this cleanse was going to be about eating whole foods and figuring out types of food might not react with my system so well.
It is more of what they call an elimination diet. Days 1 -7 you are eliminating red meat (ok I can deal), gluten (yikes), caffeine (double yikes), and sugar (holy hell). However, I also read about what I could eat, I could eat eggs, chicken, turkey, beans. I would not be starved, I might be deprived a bit but I would not starve. Ok I am in, I can do this !!! Bring it. You take some supplements from Shaklee as well. The vitalizer which I already take, garlic (if you have a high candida score), the fiber plan, and liver dtx. Sounds like a lot but not really.
you also have to drink an alkaline broth. a cup a day, boil a bunch of greens and then drink the water (not so tasty but just a cup can't kill me right?)
So I warmed up a bit yesterday but today I started. The scary part is I felt pretty good. Green tea is tasty. I even ran 3 miles today and felt full of energy. I am just starting to get a headache and that is to be expected. I am really excited to be doing this and seeing how my body reacts. I have never done any type of cleanse. Oh and I bought some Glutino pretzels and they taste great.
So Day 1 is almost over, will be having turkey chili tonight (sans any sour cream and cheese) some more green tea, and maybe a few pretzles...tune in for Day 2 where i have the challenge of a luncheon party and ordering a meal not just making it.
