Well, today marks the first day of D-Tox. My goal is to share with you how I'm feeling for the next 14 days of D-Tox, if I feel any different, side effects, what I'm eating, did I fall off the wagon etc.
I started the day with 1/2 scoop vanilla protein, 2 scoops FiberMend and 2 scoops of Mediclear mixed with some almond breeze almond milk.
Fiber Mend - "Encourages optimal digestive function and elimination by promoting beneficial microflora/bacterial balance in the gut. Supports weight management efforts and helps maintain the body's normal inflammatory response."
MediClear-SGS - "Supporting tissue repair and regeneration, this rice and pea protein powder helps eliminate harmful substances in the body. Added vitamins, minerals, amino acids and botanicals aid in the detoxification process and promote healing."
Because of the vitamins and minerals in the MediClear, I've stopped taking my regular daily vitamins by recommendation, but continue to take my fish oil.
The mix is a bit grimey by texture, but the taste isn't too bad. No real side effects except for a little stomach discomfort, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Since I didn't get any food prep in over the weekend, I failed to bring lunch. Since this really isn't that restricting as far as food goes, I was able to go to Chipotle and get a bowl with rice, beans, steak, lettuce and then I added a little greek yogurt on top as a substitute for sour cream.
You'll notice that a lot of the non-approved items start to repeat themselves in the different categories. The thing I do like about D-Tox so far is that it is not at all a food restricting detox. It's more of an elimination diet which is exactly what my Dr. ordered me to do about a month ago. I've waited this long so I would have less temptations from cabin weekends, gatherings, games, etc.
Snacks for the day were my usual cashews and apple.
Dinner was a chicken breast with salt and pepper and a couple boiled red potatoes. I was making chicken wild rice soup for my lunches for the week, so that brought my macros to where they needed to be for the day while I munched on carrots, chicken and 'taste tested' the soup.
Still no side effects from the shake in the morning. Not sure if that's a good thing or not...we shall see!
