Let me first apologize for allowing time and scheduling conflicts affect other posts about my(Dr. Joey) personal experience on the nutritional cleanse. Although it’s been a fair amount of time between blog posts, the results have been constant. The overall feeling I’ve had of increased energy, prolonged stamina during the day, and better mental focus has been a consistent status. Here’s a list of the variety of foods I consumed during the transition from no meat for ten days to chicken or fish every other day.
Breakfast options: Egg white omelet with spinach, chopped up bellpeppers, chopped up onions, mild organic salsa. The breakfast smoothie with cabbage, spinach, carrots, pineapple chunks, strawberry slices, and 1/2 cup of blueberries along with the SP complete and Whey protein complete.
Lunch options: Mixed season vegetables, grilled veggie scewers dirty brown rice under grilled chicken or salmon, baked asparagus with minced garlic and lemon juice sprinkles, green salads with bellpepper chunks and onion chunks along with pinto and black beans. Again, I emphasize those grilled scewers at logans were absolutely delicious!
Dinner options: The menu doesn’t really change from the lunch menu. When the hours got away from me, a smoothie was an easy choice to fall back on in order to avoid the “full” feeling to follow if bedtime was near.
This has been a great experience in my life to reclaim a better sense of control regarding food choices. I no longer look for the quick route, but enjoy the process of making up a delicious, nutritious meal knowing I’m making a deposit in my personal health account. Both my wife and I hope to inspire others to seek about the whole food process, rather than look for a quick fix only to fall back into the bad habits that pushed them further from health. I lost a total of 15 pounds throughout the 21 day process. What I am most proud of is no longer CRAVING a cup of coffee in the morning. I am not a hostage under stimulant control. It’s nice not to fall into the mindset I won’t be at my best if I don’t have a cup or two in the morning. I truly hope someone’s interest was peaked during these blogs and would like to talk more about this venture. Thanks so much for the chance to share our experiences with our readers!
