Starting another day off NOT wanting fruit in the AM. I don't want sweets...I want FOOD. So I ate leftover lentils. Then I realized there is probably something to the recommendation of having the fruit sugar give you a lift. I was dragging. I needed that fructose energy. But...the day must go on and I have to get to work today.
mid morning snack
Glugged down the 8 oz of drink and 2 supplements. Back to work. Did I mention I'm hungry?
sadly, as often happens on days I work, I did not have time to eat. You would think not a big deal when you are in a limited calorie cleanse...but...I need to feed my cells some nutrients. I do drink an insane amount of water and green tea so I stay hydrated.
Oh goodie, another supplement and berry drink. At least it is tasty!
I was so hungry for fish-the only protein I'm allowed now in this phase aside from lentils. I went to Whole Foods to grab some to grill and happened to notice they had plain white fish with lemon as an item on the ready-to-eat hot bar. Ooh, I'm in! To not have to wait any longer to eat I will just load up my container with raw cucumber and cooked carrots and snap peas. I layered raw beets and raw zoodles on the bottom and put 2 roasted sweet potatoes in there after I scraped off the onions and peppers clinging to them. I grabbed 2 days worth so I can eat tomorrow too. As I got home and dug in I realized fish is clearly NOT something to get from a hot bar self serve station. Dry, flavorless and clearly sitting there for awhile. Ok Heidi, lesson learned. Be prepared. Don't wait till the last minute for food. At least the veggies hit the spot. Went to bed hangry. I just read that days 5-7 are the hardest in this cleanse. Great.
