The first week was interesting. From eating very little to 3 full meals a day plus snacks and protein shakes in between. Cutting out the sugars had massive changes to my body and mind. At times I had major crashes, I felt really down and it was hard to find the motivation to kick myself in gear. Although I am allowed coffee in my program, but I have decided as I'm detoxing before bed, I'm going to go full out on this and cut that caffeine also. At times I longed for the caffeine rush but with breakfast that consists of porridge and blueberries, that gives me engery throughtout the day but not in a caffeine, sugar rush way. A longer lasting source of energy.
So far, I must drink 1 pint of water first thing in the morning before I do anything. This massively has improved my alertness and I don't feel as groggy in the mornings. Then it's breakfast @7am. This is porridge with blueberries (I tried it with dates but yuk!) then my first protein shake. I am allowed to snack on nuts during the day until it's lunch time and this week I've stuck to having the same meals. My thought process is if I have the same meal, the same amount, I don't have to concentrate on making this and get get focus on my daily task. Lunch has been 4 scrambled eggs and 100g smoked salmon. Then another pint of water and my second protein shake.
Evening meal that I have to eat by 8pm has been brown rice, two chicken breast, spinach and 2 more eggs. I decided to funk this up a bit as I'm not a huge fan of rice. For this I decide to fry these all together with some coconut oil, some garlic, turmeric, paprika and at the end i poured in some Nando's peri piri sauce and finished this off with two poached eggs! I have to say, this was lovely. Final protein shake with another pint of water and a detox tea before bed.
All in all, this is a good program, I'm starting to feeling more sturdy ifthat makes any sense, Sam is very helpful. He's always there to answer any stupid questions that I have asked I have my gym program now
