Cleanse: Days 1 and 2
What have I been eating for 2 days and how do I feel? It has been a combination of the following (sticking to the 2 X as many vegetables as fruits)
Supplement shakes: 8 oz. Rice Milk and 2 tbls of mix. Mix is from the standard process cleanse and contains proteins from whey, flax and rice. Additional ingredients include powder and extracts from brussels sprouts, kale, barley grass, alfalfa, soybeans, grapes, carrots and red wine.
On my salads I've been mixing my own dressing of balsamic vinegar, garlic, lite olive oil, lemon juice, pepper and celtic salt.
I've experienced a range of feelings over the course of 2 days. I believe, that while I'm not doing the cleanse on the level of a 10, my body is still detoxing to a certain extent. I've experienced a few headaches but all have been cured by drinking 8-16 oz of water. I've experienced a bit of ... well ... let's just say my body is LOVING the food I'm giving it and refusing to let it go (also trying to cure this with excessive amounts of water).
I feel healthy. I am proud of the discipline I've had over the last two days and feel positive about today! One day at a time and I accept the challenge.
Starting tomorrow, I will be able to add a serving of brown rice and a serving of lentils to the cleanse. That will make for a filling meal after 3 days of veggies and fruits!
