Day 3 was the worst day for breakouts! I began getting some breakouts on my chin and around my mouth area. Everything was seeming to come to the surface!
CLEANSE DAY 4:
CLEANSE DAY 5:136.4 lbs.
By day 5 I was feeling wonderful! My face hurt because of the hard knots of funk that seemed to be popping up but again, many say that is just the toxins removing themselves. The first day of the detox I was a bit hungry as I was not used to going without some sort of meat. The goal was not to loose weight but to detoxify so I basically just ate as much of the recipe that I wanted. I got a little tired of smoothies every morning so instead of making a smoothie with the ingredients that the detox prescribed, some mornings I just ate it raw. I needed a little crunch in my life! I had a baby four months ago and while not the goal, the detox seemed to get some of that baby weight around my hips off pretty fast. In the end, I did loose 5 lbs and got down to my pre-baby weight!
You can get the Amazing Grass Detox here on Amazon! In my research, it is cheaper on Amazon than in most places. I found two options a regular size and then a larger size.
Now, to address one other issue. I am HORRIBLE when it comes to breakfast but I have learned in this cleanse that fueling your metabolism is HUGE for total body health. My main issue with breakfast is that I have no time to make breakfast, I do not like breakfast food, and I am usually not very hungry when I first wake up. Well this detox totally changed that! I wake up ready to hit the pantry!
With Sweet Home Farm’s breakfast products, I have found my match! While I love their Erewhon cereal I rarely have time to enjoy a bowl of cereal, therefore the granola is the perfect substitute! I keep a box of Sweet Home Granola in my car and one in the pantry so that I NEVER miss a breakfast and I always have a snack. I am super eager to get back to enjoying this mixture of goodness Sunday morning when my detox is over. I love all of their flavors but my favorites are the french vanilla and maple Pecan! I love that their products are NEVER made with preservatives, artificial colors, or artificial flavors.
Here is a variety pack of my two favorite. $26 may seem a little steep but this is a large carton. Like the size of a carton of milk and best of all, it is a small business that you are supporting. Small businesses are not able to mass product like big manufacturers therefore they do not get to take the liberty of volume price cuts. Rest assured that you are helping out a local American family.
I am ready for my next step. Now that my baby weight is off, I need to focus on re-texturing the skin on my belly and thighs as well as add some abs back! I decided to join the It Works club to try out their Defining Gel and Body Wraps. I was totally skeptical about the body wrap but I learned that there is a longer term result with it as the ingredients that are absorbed help to break down fat cells!
