DAY 13

I feel pretty good. Down 8 pounds so far. I’ve found a few recipes that I like and that’s what I eat every day for the most part.

I went the first 7 days, adhering to eating “CLEAN” (breakfast shake, solid meal, dinner shake). I must admit I have gone rogue a few times since then and had food that was not “CLEAN” (cinnamon rolls, chicken pot pie, chicken and yellow rice with cream of mushroom soup, and cheddar and sour cream ruffles).

Let me be clear - I FELT THE EFFECTS OF THOSE YUMMY INDULGENCES. The cinnamon rolls and chicken pot pie didn’t bother me so much. The other foods, however, resulted in horrible allergies (sneezing, runny nose) and bloating the next day. There is no way for me to know if the problems stemmed from the rice, the dairy, or the potato chips (which also have dairy in the flavoring) because I ate them all on the same day! Next time I will only indulge in one at a time!

DAY 4

I felt wonderful this morning. I woke up earlier than usual, full of energy and no headache! Yesterday I drank lots of water and a strong cup of green tea and took an additional capsule of magnesium to try to get rid of my headache and it appears to have worked!

Green Tea with Lemon to start the day!

Reading CLEAN by Dr. Alejandro Junger, p. 107. As it turns out, you’re not doomed if you have “bad genes.”

Dinner Shake. A bit grainy. I think I’ll try to reduce the amount of powder next time. Honestly, I’m not even hungry right now so I’m not really concerned with the taste. I got full halfway during lunch too…maybe this program will start to get easier now!

DAY 3

Let’s play bad news/good news:

The bad news is that I still have a terrible headache that started yesterday. Also, I have been wheezing the past two nights after I have my dinner shake. I’m not sure if it is the kale or the nectarine that is making me wheeze (or maybe neither of them).

The good news is that I am down another half pound. Also, I got the Clean book today and I bought some brown rice protein powder that I will use in my shake tonight. Based on everything I’ve read days 1 through 3 are the toughest so I expect to feel better tomorrow!
