Cleanse:Day 10

Finally my 14 day cleanse is winding down....I'm just finishing day 10!

Today I've been craving bread. A nice warm, crusty loaf of Italian bread just out of the oven, slathered with butter.....*drool*. Okay, back to reality.

Tomorrow starts the final stage of my cleanse, re-introducing foods back to my diet and checking for a reaction:

  • Day 11: Rye
  • Day 12: Dairy
  • Day 13: Cheese
  • Day 14: Wheat
After eating the re-introduced item, you check for reactions such as stomach upset, gas, fatigue, or even sinus congestion. This can indicate a food that you are sensitive to and may want to limit in your regular diet. Dr. Turner also suggests gradually adding beef and pork on days 15 and 16.

Since I started the cleanse I've lost a total of 3.5 pounds. I have also noticed increased energy, especially while exercising. Considering the time change last weekend to "Spring ahead", I find this especially notable.

Tonight for dinner I made a yummy Thai Green Chicken Curry. Look for that recipe in a future blog post!
