Today was my first day of a completely caffeine-free day and still doing fine, so far. I am sipping some Coconut Oolong tea sweetened with liquid stevia.
Had a protein Greenberry Shakeology shake for breakfast made with almond milk and also had a Chocolate Shakeology shake for dinner, along with a tablespoon of almond butter. Usually add peanut butter, but due to fungus on peanuts (per Dr. Junger and the Clean book) they are not in the program. I will miss my peanut butter.
Lunch was my main meal and I ate Indian food at Rasoi, on Hope Street in Pawtucket, RI. Delicious! I had Shrimp Saag and a little rice, although I remembered after no white rice, so will keep that in mind. I passed on the garlic naan and still felt I ate plenty to fill me without feeling stuffed.
Another day or so of easing in and then I will start the plan in full force.
I have decided to experiment with myself to find if any specific foods are bothering my digestive system, I am experiencing allergies for the first time in my life and starting thinking it may be a food I am eating.
I found Clean by Dr. Alejandro Junger and will begin the Elimination Diet part of the program for 3-4 days beginning tomorrow. Then I will do the 21 Days of Clean to, well, clean out my system and detox.
Then when I begin adding foods back in I will hopefully find the annoying culprit and eliminate that particular food from my everyday diet. And the jump start with weight loss will also be a plus.
I will be posting every day for the full 21 days once I begin them on Friday. Easing into the plan for the first few days. Off to the grocery store for some good clean food!
