My cleanse

November 9th, 2014 at 11:46 am

So I am doing the 21 day ultimate reset by beachbody. It's to cleanse and reset my eating habits. I don't know how it's going to go but I'm on Day 5 surprisingly and not hungry. It's supposed to teach me to eat no sugar, no caffeine, and eat whole foods mostly fruits and veggies.

What's the first week been like? Giving up red meat, all meat, dairy, sugar, and junk food. I didn't think I was a terrible eater but apparently I was. The hardest part so far has been giving up caffeine. I drank 1-2 cans of diet soda/regular soda/day. Now I usually get it on the deal of $2.50/12 pack but still it adds up calorie wise.

This new cleanse is making me feel very fiberous. I feel healthier I'll admit without the sugar, caffeine, and meat. But at the same time I feel stuffed from eating so much food because I'm eating a ton of veggies. The recipes and portions are large because they are such minimal food.

I have a bet going with my mom that I will see her at Christmas having lost 15 lbs (I wanted to say 20 lbs) but felt that was too ambitious. I'm not sure yet what I've lost but I feel like this is a big lifestyle change.

Will it stick? I hope so but I'm not sure. I can guarantee once off it I'll probably go back to eating dairy and some meat. But I might try to get off the carbs. I might also try to stop caffeine and sugar as suggested until 2015 since I'm supposed to wait a month until after the 21 day reset.

Right now the reset ends on 25th of November. My BIL is coming to visit on the 24th so we'll be probably eating out but I'm going to stick on my packing food and eating differently. I will try to post more about this journey.

My next challenge will be following the blog 100 days of real food.

    Did you have to pay for the program? If so, how much? It's great you are feeling so much better!

    Glad to hear it's going well! Try L-Tyrosine in the morning instead of coffee--it's supposed to reduce the caffeine withdrawal effects, and good luck with the rest of the program!

    My daughter uses Beach Body, they have very expensive programs and products, imo.

    Yes it was like $200. I made a bet with my mom. $100 was a gift for Christmas and $100 to see if I can lose the weight and keep it off. It's a one shot deal. I actually like the recipes and will probably keep many of them in place to try to help with overall weight loss and healthier eating.

    I haven't done that program, but I have a few other beachbody programs. Yes, they are expensive, but they are awesome! Really good for someone like me who doesn't have a gym membership, and needs some structure (somebody telling me what to do and when). That said, I have never bought any of them through Beachbody, I've gotten all 3 of my programs on Ebay for much cheaper! I'm currently doing a blend of P90X, Turbofire (best program on the face of the earth), and T25. Good luck with the program - you can do it!!

    Good luck! It takes a lot of willpower to keep up with things like that - but I feel like having a challenge structure gives it a small, incremental goal that can be accomplished. Once you get to the end of the cleanse you'll feel so good you wont want to go back eating willy-nilly Smile

    I got the insanity, t25, and hip hop abs from the library. They are great. I also got them from friends.

    I hope to make some of these lifestyle changes permanent. Probably why I went cold turkey. I want to stay off soda and caffeine. Sugar will probably be harder, but some of these changes I'll implement like eating breakfast and lunches I make now seem easy enough.

    Good luck! I just did the Three Day Refresh last week, which is sort of a mini-Ultimate Reset. After doing the TDR, I can safely say that I can never do UR haha.
