I have been feeling a bit lethargic, anxious and had trouble sleeping lately and I thought I would give it a try. What have I got to loose? I worked it in when Tyler was away for work so I wouldn’t have to cook him dinner or be tempted by food around me. This is my best tip for this diet – avoid distraction. It didn’t help that I work in a kitchen and will spent the majority of the week baking cookies, bread and cakes. Being a vegetarian, I am told that I do not need to detox like meat eaters do, but honestly with the amount of cheese I eat. . . Maybe it’s a good idea! I am writing this log daily so you can see how I was feeling at each part of the diet. Wish me luck!
9:00am - Feeling tired after a crap night sleep. Tyler wasn’t home and I was convinced that someone was trying to get into my house. LOL. I have made up the first shake. Initial thoughts are, wow ’Do you like Pina Coladas? something something rain’. It is quite thick once you add the water, like something from Boost juice.
12:00pm – Eye has started to twitch. Hungry. . . need coffee. Get a hold of yourself woman!! I have progressed onto my 2nd shake and am fighting through the lunch cravings. But seriously, if someone put a toastie in front of me right now, I’de eat it. Feeling distracted and keep walking out of a room looking for something but then forget what it was.
12:30pm – Green tea. Nom.
1:00pm – Having trouble stomaching the shake. Tummy hurts and will to eat bread is getting far stronger than hate for fat thighs. Fantisizing about breakfast on Thursday.
1:30pm – Ate sandwich. It was delicious. Hung up my detox suit. Possible New Years Resolution of will power.
I think you should know. . .
- Sip the shakes slowly! Everytime you feel that hunger pang, have a sip and chase it with ice cold water so you don’t get too sick of that taste!
- I don’t really like the mix of coconut and pineapple so I wasn’t thrilled about the flavour but the way it filled me up was great!
- Make sure it’s cold! I left mine in a bottle and then put the bottle into a jug of iced water. To make it a bit more appetising, put it in a glass with a straw.
- I highly doubt it will make you look like the lady on the bottle… unless you already look that way.
