I did a cleanse!
Yes. I have gone crazy! I did a cleanse. Three days of smoothies full of fruits, vegetables, and other healthy stuff.
How and why, you ask?
How - I had been chatting with a friend one week about weight loss and feeling healthy. The next week I saw her and she said she and another friend did this cleanse and she felt great. It's Dr Oz's 3 Day cleanse.
Why - because I felt icky! And I just needed a kick in the pants.
Here's how it worked:
Breakfast was a smoothie with raspberry, lemon, water, banana, spinach, flax seed, and almond butter. It was pretty good. Tart but good. Then you take a probiotic and your daily vitamin. When I read about why people take probiotics, I felt like I really need that in my life.
Lunch was just gross, but I chugged through it. Celery, kale (but I used spinach), lime, green apple, avocado, almond milk, coconut oil, and pineapple. On day 3 I ate that as a salad. Much better!
Dinner was blueberries, mango, coconut water, flax seed, kale (again spinach for me), lemon, and cayenne pepper. The cayenne was op much. I also ate this as a salad one night. Matt even liked it.
During day 1 I felt very tired all day. Day 2 I had a headache and felt tired. Peppermint oil helped a lot. Day 3 I felt great! Overall, I feel like I've gotten a handle on my over the top sugar cravings and I've lost some weight. So it was a good thing.
