Full body detox days 8-present

I realized I haven’t updated the progress of my detox in over a week.

Well for one, I still don’t have cravings for sweet foods, though I do occasionally snack on a few chips here and there. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m no longer strictly raw, I’m more focused on eating cleaner. Like today, I had a slice of salmon fillet with homemade vegetable fried rice I made from scratch using short grain brown sushi rice. Added some sliced mushrooms, green pepper, water chestnuts, and threw in a few pineapple chunks.

The last time I weighed myself a couple of days ago, I had lost close to 10 lbs. For me, that’s pretty good for primarily just watching my diet. I only imagine how much more I might have lost if I had also incorporated a regular exercise routine in my schedule. I’ve heard & seen videos of folks losing as much as 60 lbs on this program. As exciting as that sounds, I don’t think I could take that drastic of a change in 3 weeks.

I have about 4-5 days left on this program. Would I do this again, maybe. I didn’t want to detox then end up going back to what I was doing before so I’m more focused on maintenance. I’m still making up my mind about buying a dehydrator. If making kale chips and the like will keep me from buying potato chips, I may go ahead and take the plunge, lol

Full body detox, days 5-7

The last few days I can say I’ve noticed a decline in my cravings for sweets. During the beginning of the detox I bought 2 pints of Talenti brand ice cream, which I love, (’cause it was on sale at a great price) I haven’t had the temptation to break them open. Maybe I’ve broken my addiction to sugar, I’m not sure.

I also know that I’m not cut out for living a 100% raw foods diet. Dedication to living the raw food lifestyle also involves quite a lot of time spent prepping meals. I just don’t have that kind of time to spend in the kitchen every day. But I’m dedicated to eating a cleaner diet. I added brown rice back into my diet, though it’s cooked food. I was getting bored with eating nothing but raw rood recipes and I was concerned about eating too few calories and messing up my metabolism.

I’ve also been debating back and forth about possibly buying a dehydrator. I like chips, (banana, potato, kale, plantain) but going back to buying potato chips off the shelf I feel is no longer an option for me. I’ll know by the end of the detox if I’m willing to make that investment.
