Day 3: I have been going through some insane junk food cravings. Pizza, chips, French fries, cookies, brownies, and foods that I don’t even eat anymore! I didn’t realize how badly Vegan junk food affects the body. Just because it is Vegan, doesn’t mean that the cookie is magically more wholesome than a non-vegan cookie. It is still full of sugar.
I am also realizing that processed juice or even pressed juice isn’t as healthy as it should be. Yes, the vital nutrients are absorbed faster in the gut however it lacks fiber. And because of this, the fiber is not there to slow down the absorption of fruit sugar. Essentially it hits your bloodstream just like soda pop would with the same insulin response. Which means everytime you down liquid sugar without fiber, it turns right to fat. This is where I see the importance of smoothies as they retain important fiber to slow down and process natural sugars the right way within our bodies.
Day 4: I am down 5 lbs! When I started this diet I was a very well rounded 162 lbs and today I weighed in at 157 lbs! I expected to lose weight but not this much so quick! My body is also definitely detoxing as I am waking up very sweaty and rank, however, I feel better physically. So I will take it!
I have definitely been experiencing an energy crisis the last 4 days. I feel like a cell phone battery operating at critically low. I know this will get better and I am just pushing through it the best that I can. I know I will feel worse before I feel better, as that is generally how detoxing goes. Much love to all those that are on this journey with me! Xo
