I made it through my first week! And... drumroll please... my weigh in reveals -5 lbs. Hooray! One week of watching what I eat, has gotten better results than 6 weeks of an intense exercise regimen. Let's see what happens this week when I combine the two.
For the past week, according to the Standard Process kit directions, I have been taking 2 SP Complete shakes per day, 7 SP Cleanse capsules 3 times per day, and 3 Gastro Fiber capsules 3 times per day. I also added a parasite cleanser that I got from my Aunt, which is called WRM, and I take 2 dropperfuls of this 3 times per day. Hey, go big or go home, right?
The hardest part of the capsule regimen is that you have to take them on an empty stomach. Which means I can take the pills, wait an hour, and then eat, OR I can eat, wait 2 hours, and then take the pills. I am allowed to take the shake with the pills... but it is unclear if I can still take the shake if I am mixing the powder with fruit so I still try to stagger it.
Starting today, I take 5 capsules of SP Green Food, two times per day (this replaces the SP Cleanse capsules).
I am not going to sugar coat it, this is probably too regimented for some people... and it is hard to do unless you feel pretty committed. I am proud of myself for making it through both parties yesterday without slipping. My only "cheat" from my list of foods I am able to eat, is that I have used canned organic tomatoes and organic tomato juice in the Gazpacho and in the Poblano soup... along with organic Vegetable Stock. I checked the ingredient lists for hidden sugar, oil, or other ingredients besides vegetables, and did not see any so I am ok with this little change (the diet calls for fresh or frozen only).
Thanks for the support!
