So today was day two of the GM Cleanse aka Veggie Day!
“Day Two starts with a fix of complex carbo-hydrates coupled with an oil dose. This is taken in the morning for energy and balance. The rest of day two consists of vegetables which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fibre.”
Today was easier than yesterday because I actually enjoy eating veggies. So although I was still not as satisfied as I would have felt eating a cheeseburger, it was better than yesterday.
When I woke up I was starving. The nice part was I noticed that all the fruit I consumed yesterday got rid of a lot of my bloat, so I felt good about that. I weighed myself before I ate or drank anything and I lost about 2 lbs since yesterday.
So off to the kitchen I went to get my one baked potato that I am allowed on this cleanse. I was only allowed to put a little pat of butter on it and I added some pepper 🙂 It was so tasty and satisfying after being deprived of food yesterday.
I worked from 1pm-8pm today. Before I went to work I filled up on some broccoli and asparagus. Besides dealing with this cleanse I am going through some stressful issues and unlike most people when I am stressed, I am no longer hungry. I experienced less cravings and instead I had a bad headache throughout the day. I kept on chugging that water to try and make it go away.
For my dinner I headed over to Whole Foods again on my break and I loaded up on veggies at their salad bar. TIP! If you stick to the lighter items the salad will be a decent price, but watch out for those heavy items because you will end up paying for a very expensive salad. For my salad I loaded up on kale, spinach, arugula, and turnip greens. I topped them with mushrooms, peas, jalapenos, and baby corn. I dressed the salad with apple cider vinegar and olive oil. I also got a few pieces of squash and eggplant from their hot food bar. It was delicious and I felt very satisfied.
I also got a grilled artichoke for 99cents! Woah! …………..Here is the bad part, I cheated with a little tiny bit of ranch to lightly dip the artichoke in……. I think my cleanse will still run its course…. 😉
Anyways after work I was starving again and I came home and had some more broccoli and asparagus. Throughout the day I also chugged through those 10 glasses of water. When one hears 10 glasses they are just like “that is sooo much water” but I actually drank through the glasses pretty easily. Water not only helps with flushing my system but it also keeps me full between eating. So all in all, it is really helpful!
That is all for today. I will keep you posted tomorrow night! Please like, comment, subscribe and pin this page! I would love to hear any feedback!
