Day 21

Welcome to Day 21 of the Purification Program.

Well, the final day of your purification program has finally arrived.  Don’t be tempted to come off early, STAY STRONG and finish out the program.  After all, you’ve worked this hard for 20 days.

How Should I Feel Today?

On your final day of the program, you should find that you are feeling great and probably thinking a little bit about how you are going to miss how wonderful you have been feeling.  Well, the wonderful feelings do not have to end.  If you apply the tips I have been sharing and extend your newly developed habits into your everyday life, the good feelings can continue.  Remember how much energy you have now and how well you have been sleeping.  Once you start to reintroduce foods and resume some of your old habits, think back to this point and you may just find that a Coke or Twinkie just isn’t worth it…

Weight Loss

Do you want to continue losing weight even though the program is ending?  A simple tip is to continue using SP shakes as meal replacements.  You can replace up to two meals a day with shakes depending on how aggressive your weight loss goals are.  Your other meals should conform to the 40-30-30 rule.  40 percent of calories from carbohydrate, 30 percent from protein and 30 percent from fat.  A chicken caesar salad is a good example of a meal that meets these percentages.

Reminders

Have you acted on all of our recommendations?  If you have, you are prepared to conclude the program and move on to the re-introduction of additional foods.  If you haven’t, or perhaps you couldn’t get an appointment with your doctor for a few days, remember, you can stay on the program as long as you desire.  It is actually quite healthy to continue doing SP shakes and the other supplements daily.  Suggested dosages are below, however, you should also consult with Dr. Carlson to ensure this is the best protocol for your situation.

Recipe of the Day

Blackened Ahi Tuna
