Yesterday I finished off my 7 Day cleanse. The Torture finally ended.
This is what the week looked liked for me:
Day 1: I felt AMAZING! I didn’t even know I was on a cleanse.
Day 2: Things were still going good. I couldn’t understand why Matt was so tired because I still felt awesome.
Day Three: This is when everything fell apart. I had the WORST headache.
Day Four: The headache continued…I felt like my brain was trying to escape.
Day Five: The headache subside and I started to feel slightly normal, but SO hungry.
Day Six: Hungry. Hangry. I felt very apathetic about the whole experience and the thought of surviving one more day was almost too much.
Day Seven: Happy, happy, happy to be done!
All joking aside, the cleanse did help me with a few things:
- Clearer skin
- A flatter tummy (no significant weight loss, but definitely not feeling/looking bloated)
- Eliminated the mid-afternoon funk
- I’m no longer tired after eating a meal
- I feel satisfied with smaller portions
Cleansing works well when you find the right type of cleanse. After this experience, I don’t think I’d repeat this cleanse again. This was my third time using the same protocol and this was by far, the hardest. Next time, I think I’ll try a different method.
Are you inspired to cleanse?
