What would you do for a million bucks? Would you be willing to live in a tent for 1 week? How about live in prison for 1 month? Would you be willing to move away from friends and family for 1 year? Well, thankfully you do not have to do any of this to feel like a million bucks, just stick with the purification program for 21 days! Hang in there!
How Should I Feel Today?
Don’t feel discouraged if you feel a little less than 100%. As your body continues to purge toxins that have gathered over the years you may feel a little groggy, experience a mild headache and fatigue and perhaps even become irritable. Don’t worry, this won’t last forever and should pass in the next day or so.
Also, today or tomorrow is often when the cravings start to kick in. If they do, remember these tips to help curb the cravings:
- Add Gymnema Tablets (2 twice per day) if not already included
- Have a little “Good” fat like avocado
- Try a little “Approved” protein like lentils (1 cup per day or 1/2 cup of wild or brown rice)
Remember, no potatoes of any kind except sweet potatoes and yams. If weight loss is your goal, you should even limit those to ½ a serving each day. For more details about what to eat during the program to optimize weight loss, please see the document “Diet with Focus on Weight Loss Support”.
Remember, no canned fruit or vegetables. Frozen is fine, but fresh (and organic if possible) is the best as it increases the value of the program. The one exception is canned tomatoes for recipes (although fresh is preferred), but make sure to read the label. It should not contain any sugar, high fructose corn syrup, wheat, etc. In fact, it should basically say “Tomatoes and water.”
