I’m happy to report that the cleanse went well. I feel healthier, have been sleeping better, and Helene even said I had a glow.
Aside from my glow, here are other positive changes:
Now that I’m finished with the cleanse, I’ve slowly started to introduce solids back into my diet. The other night, I had a few slices of mozzarella cheese, half an avocado, and a handful of cherry tomatoes for dinner. Tonight, I had a handful of cherry tomatoes and a baked salmon filet. I’ve really been enjoying simple foods that are unexpectedly filling. I’ve also been eating a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats and Lactaid in lieu of a meal or as a snack. I think the best part of the BPC was that it helped me kick start my summer diet.
There were times when I was very hungry, but it wasn’t that bad. The hardest part was sitting with coworkers while they ate lunch. But it was only three days. This was my typical schedule:
All the juices were great, but the ones I will continue drinking are the green juice and pineapple apple mint. The green juice will be adjusted by taking out all that celery. It left a peculiar taste on my tongue that I didn’t enjoy. The PAM was so delicious and easy to make. I will continue to drink juices in place of breakfast and sometimes dinner, if I can handle it.
If you’re wondering about whether or not you can successfully complete a cleanse – you can! Just keep some healthy snacks around you and munch when you get hungry. Just stay away from carbs and processed foods and you should be fine.
