10 Things from 10 Days

Today is the 10th day of the 10 Day Gutbliss Detox that D and I are doing.  With how crazy work is right now for both of us, and the winter weather kicking in, meals haven’t gone quite as well as we had hoped, but I can tell you that we are feeling a TON better, and both of us have shed some “bloat” weight these past 10 days.  I have dropped about 7lbs, and D had already dropped 7lbs by day 5 (men!!).  We are both eating more now that we were, and feeling pretty good, too!  I am looking forward to adding foods back in and figuring out what exactly was the cause of the many issues I had been having, and that D had been having.  I’m thinking mine was gluten, and his might be dairy.  We will find out!  Adding gluten back tomorrow and will see what happens.

 

A quick 10 day recap for you…

 

10 Things from 10 Days of Gutbliss

 

  1. Wow.  Need lots of water with lots of fiber.
  2. Green juice in the morning works just as well as a pre-workout or coffee. I have had enough energy in the mornings (even with crappy sleep) to push myself hard in the gym.
  3. When you add ground flax seed and psyllium husk to smoothies, you don’t need protein powder or dairy elements to make you feel full.
  4. My PMS symptoms improved *exponentially*
  5. My skin is actually more clear. Attribute to added water or the mainly plant based diet?
  6. I miss cheese.
  7. I can eat more calories and lose weight if I’m eating the right calories. I’ve averaged about 2,000 calories a day on intake, versus the 1,600 I was having before (and not eating back workout calories).
  8. Apparently all rice is not gluten free… Only brown rice.
  9. I haven’t had a headache in 10 days!
  10. When I have a craving, eat it – just make it work. Example:  Turkey Burgers with guacamole and caramelized onions on sweet potato “buns” when craving a huge burger.
