Day three has been the easiest day thus far. Knowing that I could eat “freely” so to speak was big factor into how smooth the day went. I felt like I was back to a normal routine but being able to have lunch and dinner.
My shakes tasted better and went down easier. I didn’t feel like I had as many unhealthy food cravings as I did days one and two. My lunch consisted of ground turkey and a sweet potato, dinner was garlic chicken with mixed vegetables. And the best thing I had all day was a shared snack prepared by KC, a rice cake with mashed avocado on top. YUM!
For me I made the decision to have my snack mid-morning instead of at night as I find the shakes to be filling and they satisfy any late night cravings.
In case you are dying to know my boyfriend did have his Pappas bowl? Yes, he sure did! Food traitor. He still takes the shakes and supplements daily, but he is missing out on the full benefit of the detox by eating unsanctioned foods. Sean is the perfect example of why it is important to fully commit to the detox. If you only half do it then you will only see half the results and might even fall back into old habits after. So in the words of Ron Swanson “Don’t half ass two things. Whole ass one.”
So if you are doing the detox and you find yourself cheating, now is the time to step it up and get back on track. Make the commitment to follow through on the next four days.
PS. It’s been really hard to resist coffee. Patients have been coming in with coffee and the smell alone drives me crazy. BUT I have not consumed any coffee or tea which I am very proud of.
Day three started off with a wicked headache. That quickly dissipated after I got moving.
The cravings were intense at night. My son had a Dion’s turkey sandwich for dinner and it looked sooo good. I cheated and had one Ruffle chip L… but only one. I consoled myself with a Perrier and a salad with blue berries, lettuce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and red pepper flakes. Bring on Day 4.
