Clean Program Reset for 2018!
GUESS WHO JUST FINISHED the 21 DAY CLEANSE?? Meeeee: D
During November and December I was eating out, traveling a ton and indulged at holiday parties left and right so I was CRAVING a HUGE reset going into the new year!
I can't even describe the amaazing energy I get from eating clean. I literally FEEL ON TOP OF THE WORLD and I MISSED that.
I chose to do the 21 day Clean Program again because I wanted to have that healthy feeling from the inside out. It's a regimen I feel comfortable doing because a) you're getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs, b) it's conveniently packaged so you can take it on the go and c) you get to eat all the healthy foods you want!
When I first tried this cleanse last year, giving up COFFEE was difficult, I had headaches, fatigue, anxiety etc. but after sticking it through- I never picked up a cup of coffee again and it's been 9 months now! I have a soft spot for this program because of this. Not only was I reaping the benefits during the program but I took with me a new habit of not drinking coffee which has been nothing short but amazing.
I'm not going to lie, it was hard not being able to eat GLUTEN. I didn't realize how much of it I was having in my daily diet (toast w eggs in the morning, UDON, pasta, etc) so substituting that with rice and finding a yummy gluten free bread helped a lot. I also talked to my other friends doing the program and that motivated me to keep going. Other foods I gave up during the cleanse were DAIRY, BEEF, EGGS, SODA, ALCOHOL, and PROCESSED SUGAR.
The Clean program consists of Clean Shakes, Clean Probiotics, and Clean Supplements that help your body eliminate toxins, allowing it to heal itself. I never felt like I was starving because I was able to eat nutrient rich foods like whole veggies, leafy greens, whole fruits, berries, wild fish, organic chicken, turkey, brown rice, quinoa, avocado, and coconut oil and more.
During the program I stuck to my regular workout schedule...gym-based, weight-focused toning on the Sweat App. Because I was working my muscles harder than usual I wanted to make sure I was eating enough calories and protein. Although the program suggests eating a hearty meal just for lunch, I was also having a meal on top of my shake for dinner and it encouraged me to get creative with my shakes and meals so I didn't get bored!
As you can see in just 7 days my skin texture dramatically improved. It looks dewy and smooth and I also saw huge improvements with my digestion. Looking back I didn't have any bloating or gas issues either which was soooo nice. When I accidentally cheated and had cheese on something I felt the consequences IMMEDIATELY- so it felt good not eating foods that my body was intolerant too. Other benefits I saw were toning up my stomach waking up easier, and more energy.
After the 21 days you are encouraged to slowly introduce food groups back in to help you target what might be causing bloating, indigestion, brain fog, headaches etc. I notice that when I eat processed sugar I break out and crave more sweets and when I eat dairy I get a bad stomachache and bloating. I'm so happy I did the cleanse because it's inspired me to eat more mindfully everyday and get back on track to feeling good alll of 2018!!
