Recently I had the pleasure of reading two of Natalia Rose's books, Raw Life Force Energy and Detox 4 Women. I was so inspired that I wanted to embark on her cleanse, however I felt I needed support. After going to Natalia's website, I found the contact information of her protoge, Ana Ladd-Griffin and got in touch with her. She is warm and encouraging, knowledgeable and very down to earth. I will be working with Ana through the next few weeks as she coaches me along this cleanse. Ana helped me get started and has made me feel as though I have support and someone rooting for me, it's a huge comfort. If you would like to reach Ana, you may do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the course of the next few weeks, I will share with you my journey by posting my food intake and relevant information. I'm filled with excitement and also a little trepidation. I'm exuberant over the prospect of feeling better and having more energy. I'm a little bit scared (I don't know why exactly), but I am going to do this. If anyone else is doing this, I would Love to hear from you! If anyone wants to join me, welcome! Here we go, day one.
Morning wake up:
Green juice consisting of broccoli stalks, lemon, spinach, celery and carrots and a tiny dash of stevia. Normally I put apples or pears in my juice, but no fruit for now. The stevia added that slight sweetness I wanted. I almost forgot to take a picture!
Lunch: Big Salad with carrots, cucumber and a smashed avocado with lemon, salt and stevia, sweet potato with just a smidgeon of coconut butter, salt and pepper.
I was so full after this I thought I couldn't possibly be hungry again later, but around four I felt like my blood sugar was dropping. You know that irritable slightly shaky state? (blood tests have shown there is nothing wrong with my sugar levels but...). So I had four squares of dark chocolate while another sweet potato was baking.
Dinner: A repeat of lunch.
