Disclosure: It hasn’t been 10 days, but I wanted to write something at this point, after 7 days. I know some of you are trying to be more healthy, so I’m posting some thoughts.
Let me cut to the chase, and then some thoughts. First, this is a week for me with no coffee, no alcohol, no soda, and almost no food. I’m amazed I got here. I’ve lost 12+ pounds from when I started.
I’ve been doing the Green Smoothie Cleanse with my wife. For the last seven days, I’ve been subsisting on
- green smoothies (I get 64oz/day)
- decaf tea (green and detox)
- hard boiled eggs
- peanut butter (and cashew butter, which is really good)
That’s it. I drink about 4 of these a day:
And these smoothies, usually in 3-4 chunks.
I’m hungry often, but mostly I’m unsatisfied. It’s a mixed bag for me. I’ve lost weight. I think I’m slimmer and healthier, but I also think about food. A lot. All the time.
I also think about how I think about food. I realize it’s comfort for me, and probably need to take less comfort and be more careful.
It’s been an interesting week. Three days to go and then I’ll be back on a semi normal diet. There is a transition with one smoothie and then better eating. I’ll try that a bit, but I spend 10 days traveling for work, which will be tough. At least I’m more aware of what I eat and what I can tolerate with regards to hunger.
