Day 11 and Day 12 Post Cleanse

Hello. It’s the evening of Day 12 Post Cleanse. Here’s a quick run through of what I’ve had for the last 2 days. It was the same on both Day 11 and Day 12. It’s much the same as days 9 and 10 but just more calories really:-

• 1 litre hot water and 1/2 squeezed lemon & pinch of pink Himalayan salt
• 100mls aloe vera juice & 1tsp psyllium husk powder
• wheatgrass shot
• green juice (cucumber, celery, spinach, fennel & lemon)
• Orange juice
• Homemade vegetable soup (broccoli, carrot, aubergine, miso paste, celery, orange bell pepper, cauliflower, parsley and some spices)
• lemonade (made with 1tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbsp lemon juice, cayenne)
• 100mls aloe Vera juice & 1 tsp psyllium husk powder
• leftover vegetable soup from lunchtime
• Nighttime tea (lavender, chamomile, rose & holy basil)
• 50billion probiotic, digestive enzyme capsule
• About 1 litre extra water
Total calories: 650

I also did 10,000 steps and at home workout dvd.

I’m definitely looking forward to having more variety in a couple of days and having some raw whole fruit and veg. My digestion has been good so I think going slowly has been a good idea, but I’m ready to start eating properly and not just having liquid style food (soups, smoothies, juices). I want to crunch and chew some food! I think at the start of next week I’m going to add in some rice and maybe beans and lentils, sauerkraut and crudités. I was originally going to wait a while longer, but I feel that I’ll be ready to introduce these foods and I’m looking forward to eating a broader range of foods.

Hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend.

Day 15 and Day 16 Post Cleanse

Hello. It’s the evening of Day 16 Post Cleanse. Here’s a quick run through of what I’ve had for the last 2 days. It was the same on both Day 15 and Day 16:-

• 1 litre hot water and 1/2 squeezed lemon & pinch of pink Himalayan salt
• green smoothie (raspberries, cucumber, celery, spinach, orange, wheatgrass powder)

I’m still away from home at the moment, but heading back tomorrow. It’s been lovely being with family but it has definitely tested my willpower being around all the yummy treats and indulgences for Easter. I’ll be pleased to get back to my own home to escape all the treats. I’ve stuck to the simple way of eating and have managed with lots of smoothies and soups and some dried fruit.

I’ll weigh in on Wednesday to see how I’m getting on.

Bye x

Day 17 and Day 18 Post Cleanse

Hello. It’s the evening of Day 18 Post Cleanse. Here’s a quick run through of what I’ve had for the last 2 days. It was the same on both Day 17 and Day 18:-

• 1 litre hot water and 1/2 squeezed lemon & pinch of pink Himalayan salt
• Fresh mango
• Homemade vegetable soup (sweet potato, butternut squash, carrot, ginger, garlic and miso paste)
• Homemade vegetable soup (same as at lunch)
• Sauerkraut
• Nighttime tea (lavender, chamomile, rose & holy basil)
• 50billion probiotic, digestive enzyme capsule, multivitamin
• About 1 litre extra water
Total calories: 800

I also did 10,000 steps and dvd workout.

I had a big bowl of fresh mango for breakfast on both days and it truly felt like the best thing I’ve ever eaten! It was so sweet and juicy and delicious. I loved it! The sauerkraut in the afternoon was for gut health, but I actually have always liked the taste of it, so this was nice to have for variety.

I weighed in this morning and I’m exactly the same as I was at my last weigh in. So there’s good and bad (good that I have been eating larger quantities of food and I haven’t gained weight. Bad that I am still on a low calorie intake and I haven’t lost weight). It will be interesting to see how my weight changes over the next week and a half when I complete the “breaking the fast” stage and carry on increasing my calories by 50 every two days.

Here are my stats:

Start weight: 12 stone (168)
Weight after the MC: 8 stone 13.5 pounds (125.5 pounds)
Current weight: 8 stone 8 pounds (120 pounds)
Goal weight: 8 stone (112 pounds)

Day 19 and Day 20 Post Cleanse

Hello. Here’s a quick run through of what I’ve had for the last 2 days. It was the same on both Day 19 and Day 20:-

• 1 litre hot water and 1/2 squeezed lemon & pinch of pink Himalayan salt
• Açai bowl (frozen banana, blueberries, açai powder, wheatgrass powder, psyllium husk, aloe Vera juice, rainbow chard, all blended in my nutribullet and topped with some goji berries)
• Homemade vegetable soup (leeks, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, vegetable stock, miso paste, mixed herbs)
• Homemade vegetable soup (same as at lunch)
• Sauerkraut and avocado
• Nighttime tea (lavender, chamomile, rose & holy basil)
• 50billion probiotic, digestive enzyme capsule, multivitamin, B complex
• About 1 litre extra water
Total calories: 850

I also did 10,000 steps and dvd workout.

I loved the açai bowl, it was delicious and satisfying. As you can see, I’m still taking it very slowly and introducing new foods every couple of days, as well as still increasing my calories slowly. It will be a slow process to get back up to 2000cals but I really feel that it’s worth it to do it properly so that I don’t undo all the good I’ve done up until now. I have to keep reminding myself to be patient.

I will do another weigh in this weekend as it will be 3 weeks Post Cleanse, so it will be interesting to see how I’m doing with that.

Bye x

Day 21 and Day 22 Post Cleanse

Hello. It’s been officially 3 weeks since I ended the Master Cleanse. Here’s a quick run through of what I’ve had for the last 2 days. It was the same on both Day 21 and Day 22:-

• 1 litre hot water and 1/2 squeezed lemon & pinch of pink Himalayan salt
• Acai bowl
• Homemade vegetable soup (leek, cauliflower, broccoli, watercress, garlic, parsley, miso paste)
• Homemade vegetable soup (same as at lunch)
• Sauerkraut, avocado, cucumber and tomato salad with apple cider vinegar and maple syrup dressing
• Nighttime tea (lavender, chamomile, rose & holy basil)
• 50billion probiotic, digestive enzyme capsule, multivitamin
• About 1 litre extra water
Total calories: 900

I also did 10,000 steps and dvd workout.

The avocado was so creamy and delicious! I could’ve eaten ten of them! I’m also noticing that the more I eat the more I want to eat, so it has definitely been a test of my willpower not to just immediately up my calories to a normal amount. I know it’s not the right thing for my body, so I just need to persevere adding in more calories slowly.

I weighed in and I’ve lost another 2 pounds, so it’s all heading in the right direction. :D
Here are my stats:

Start weight: 12 stone (168)
Weight after the MC: 8 stone 13.5 pounds (125.5 pounds)
Current weight: 8 stone 6 pounds (118 pounds)
Goal weight: 8 stone (112 pounds)

Day 23 and Day 24 Post Cleanse

Hello. It’s the evening of Day 24 Post Cleanse and I’ve only got the rest of this week to do and I can start adding in some more foods, like seeds, nuts, legumes, grains, etc and it will certainly make my eating more flexible and less restrictive. But for now, I’m sticking to my fruit and veg. Here’s a quick run through of what I’ve had for the last 2 days. It was the same on both Day 23 and Day 24:-

• 1 litre hot water and 1/2 squeezed lemon & pinch of pink Himalayan salt
• Acai bowl
• Homemade vegetable soup (roasted veg - sweet potato, parsnips, carrots, red onion, peppers, butternut squash, ginger, paprika, vegetable stock)
• Homemade vegetable soup (same as at lunch)
• Sauerkraut, avocado, cucumber and tomato salad with apple cider vinegar and maple syrup dressing
• Lemonade
• Nighttime tea (lavender, chamomile, rose & holy basil)
• 50billion probiotic, digestive enzyme capsule, multivitamin
• About 1 litre extra water
Total calories: 950

I also did 10,000 steps and dvd workout.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far.
Bye x

Days 25, 26, 27 and Day 28 Post Cleanse

Hello. It’s officially been 4 weeks since I ended the Master Cleanse and I have completed Part 1 of my Post Cleanse Plan. The last few days have been very busy, but I’m so pleased that I completed that first part. Onwards and upwards now.

Food wise, it was more of the same but I did add in some medjool dates (heaven!!) with breakfast. I’ve been feeling REALLY hungry all week so it has really been a challenge not to overeat and to stick to my calorie allowance and my simple fruit & veg diet.

Here’s a quick run through of what I’ve had for the last 4 days. It was more or less the same on each day.

• 1 litre hot water and 1/2 squeezed lemon & pinch of pink Himalayan salt
• Smoothie (berries, açai, wheatgrass powder, psyllium husk, aloe Vera juice, rainbow chard). Plus 6 medjool dates.
• Homemade vegetable soup for lunch (with varying types of veg each day)
• Homemade vegetable soup for dinner
• Sauerkraut, avocado, cucumber and tomato salad
• Lemonade
• Nighttime tea (lavender, chamomile, rose & holy basil)
• 50billion probiotic, digestive enzyme capsule, multivitamin
• About 1 litre extra water
Total calories: 1000 on days 25 and 26, 1050 on days 27 and 28.

I also did 10,000 steps and dvd workout.

I weighed in and I’ve lost another 2 pounds, so I’m absolutely thrilled with this.
Here are my stats:

Start weight: 12 stone (168)
Weight after the MC: 8 stone 13.5 pounds (125.5 pounds)
Current weight: 8 stone 4 pounds (116 pounds)
Goal weight: 8 stone (112 pounds)

So I just have another 4 pounds to go to reach my goal weight. I’ve lost another 2 inches off my waist in the last 4 weeks too, making a total of 13 inches lost off my waist :D

I’m planning on increasing my calories by 50 EVERY day instead of every 2 days as I feel that my body is ready for more calories and this will help with my hunger levels. I’m also really looking forward to adding in more variety to my diet, both for the physical health benefits to my body, but also mentally it will make things so much easier and less of a challenge if my diet isn’t so restrictive. I’m looking forward to cooking lentil and chickpea curries, having porridge with nut milk and nut butters, and just generally being more sociable around food.

The last four weeks have been good, but I’ve definitely found the hunger a challenge. When you’re on the MC you don’t really feel hungry (well certainly not after the first few days), so in some me ways this phase has been more difficult than the cleanse. But I am super proud of myself for not giving in to any bingeing and for sticking to the plan I’d laid out for myself.

I’m looking forward to doing Part 2 Post Cleanse and getting to my goal weight too.

I think I’ll check in once a week to update you and keep myself accountable too whilst doing Part 2.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Bye x

Hello,

It’s been a week since I started Part 2 of my post cleanse plan. I’ve increased my calories by 50 every day and I’m now on 1300 calories today. I’ve added in some fish, bone broth and some brown rice, coconut oil and almond milk. I’m starting to feel more satisfied with my meals and I’m finding the flexibility such a bonus. I’ll carry on increasing my calories and adding in more new foods.

Weight wise I’ve stayed the same, so I’ve still got a few pounds to go to get to my ultimate goal weight, but I think I will get there over the next month or so.

Hope you all have a great week.

Bye x
