I finished the 10 day cleanse! And I am happy happy happy to say goodbye to that barfy fiber drink.
I’m officially on day 12 and I am feeling really great.
Thoughts on the 10 Day Cleanse portion: Minus the fiber drink, it wasn’t terribly difficult. I had one bad day where the treats here at work got me — cookies! chocolate covered pretzels! cookies! but otherwise, I did good following the meal plan and working out. When I got on the scale yesterday I was down 4 pounds! That’s great progress in my book. I did eat fairly normally. Eggs, toast and some fruit for breakfast, lunch was some chicken and veggies or a salad,and dinner was more of the same: meat and veggies. In 10 days I had 3 diet cokes = total! Normally I would’ve had close to 20 diet cokes in 10 days, so that is huge!
Max Phase: With this phase you skip a meal at breakfast and instead drink a meal replacement shake. These shakes are pretty good! I got the chocolate mocha flavor and it does keep me full for quite a while. The major change here is the supplements. You take A LOT of supplements here.
Morning = 4 pills, 30 minutes before lunch = 4 pills, Lunch time = 8 pills, Dinner = 2 pills. Just with the pills and all of the water you need to chug to get them down you feel full!
My biggest challenge will be over the next week with Christmas this weekend with my side of the family and then hosting my in-laws for Christmas Eve/Day.
Fingers crossed for another 4-8 pounds in the next 2 weeks. I’d be a seriously happy girl!
Now if treats could stop showing up in my cubical!
