Today is day 7 of my detox. It has been going pretty well. I haven't been hungry which always surprises me. My intestines are being cleaned out. (If you know what I mean...) I did still cook dinners for the family. Over the weekend there were big breakfasts, lots of treats and a big dinner all during my liquid days. I thought it would be tough. Some moments were but for the most part it went smooth. It really is a mind game. You have to want it more than the food. In the past, food always won out.
This is what I ate on day 1:
Breakfast: oatmeal, unflavored and an apple
Lunch: a tomato and an english muffin
Snack: a green pepper
Dinner: a pear, sm. potato and a cucumber
A total of 3 fruits, 3 veggies and 3 whole grains (the potato counts as a whole grain)
A similar menu on day 2 and day 3
Then day 4, 5 and 6 were liquid days
I had 2 32oz. containers of distilled water and 2 32oz. containers of lemon water.
That's it. Nothing solid just liquid for 3 days.
The lemon mixture was 1/4 cup of 100% pure maple syrup, 1/2 cup of lemon juice and the rest filled with distilled water.
day 7 and 8 will be just fruits and veggies no whole grains and 2 shakes.
day 9 will be fruits, veggies, whole grains and shakes!
I haven't weighed myself mostly because I have a crazy scale at home that I don't trust. I'm waiting for a weigh in on Thursday at the scale that I always use. It will be more accurate.
