Cleansing diets can be hard to do, but worth while. While on a cleansing diet, you don’t eat any food for 3 days. I know I don’t promote starvation, but this is a plan to clean all the grime out of your system. It gives your digestive system a break away from the food you put in your body every day. For 3 days you do nothing but drink special drinks. You may take something first thing in the morning to clean yourself out along with laxatives, or it may call for a special fortified drink throughout the day. It all depends on the plan you choose to follow. For 3 days you will do nothing but liquids. This is hard, believe me, I just did it. After the first 3 days, you are permitted to eat but have dietary guidelines. Only certain types of foods are to be eaten. This is for the next 3 days. Then guess what? You get to do the liquid diet plan again. With the same special drinks and no food.
This type of plan will burn fat off your body. It has burned fat off my belly, my hips and my thighs. I am wearing skinny jeans that were uncomfortable before I started this plan. I burned fat off so much that my regular jeans are starting to hang on me. I need a belt to hold them up. This feels really good.
How much did I loose in only 10 days? I lost 9 pounds. I am actually back at a weight that my hubby told me I looked good at a few years ago. I didn’t agree with him then and I don’t now. I want to loose more. I still have more fat to burn off. Shorts season and swimsuits will be here soon. I want to be ready.
I could just do the cleanse again, but my body doesn’t really require it. I should be clean. This cleanse allows my bodies digestive system to process fats better and pull on some of the fat that is stored instead on just the fat I am eating. I also need to eat different.
After those 9 days of the cleansing, you will not want to eat chocolate cake or candy right away. Not if you didn’t cheat through it. I know I went through far too much and I am seeing way too good of results to splurge now.
Today so far, I have had oatmeal for breakfast. That is an allowed item. Oatmeal is very filling and full of fiber. It will help enable you to burn fat. Right now as I am writing this, I am having a snack of pretzel sticks and some fruit I never knew existed before going on this diet. They are cuties. Little tangerine type fruit that is delicious. This is so satisfying to eat. I don’t feel like I am depriving myself. Now I do love potato chips, but they are only permitted one time a week. I will eat some maybe watching a movie on our special movie night. I do like pretzels though. Since I am only allowed 3 different cheat items a week, I may not eat the chips. Fried chicken does sound better to me. So far that is it for today. It’s only 10am.
Now for drinks. I didn’t like black coffee all the time but they say sugar is bad and so are most the artificial sweeteners. Through doing research for these articles, I found where a guy was promoting a program to burn fat that allowed the sweetener, Stevia. It’s 100% natural zero calorie sweetener. It doesn’t contain the harmful ingredients the others contain. Now I can sweeten my oatmeal too.
I also am enjoying lemonade. I am making it fresh. I squeeze a lemon on one of those lemon presses to get out the juice. Take on tablespoon full of the liquid and a bit of the pulp, add it to a cup of water and add one packet of Stevia. Not bad. It’s much healthier than drinking a man make diet drink. There I s something about using real lemon that helps burn fat. Even though it wasn’t on the diet plan, I figure making a drink using it would be good. Also adding a splash of lemon to salads help bring out the flavors of your ingredients and adds nutrition.
I plan on being on this diet for awhile. I would love to loose at least 10 more pounds and maybe 20. Even after I am done loosing, I need to learn how to maintain the level I want to be at. This is a lifestyle change I am trying to develop. The good thing about it is, other than the cleanse, I am enjoying it.Tags: drink special drinks, have you tried a cleansing diet, special fortified drink, special movie night, diet plan
