I got to the end of my third day and I just thought, this is crazy!!
I can't go another five days with no protein, I just can't.
I have high fasting insulin as it is and I started to get quite dizzy and vacant and then I nearly fainted and Blair said "fuck this, eat something".
I have wanted to do this cleanse for ages but in reality, it sort of goes against what I want to achieve in the short term - which is a healthy attitude towards food, my body and my self esteem. This is just counteracting it as I am obsessing about all the "food" around me. So I will leave this cleanse until I am at the point of feeling comfortable in my body and, to be honest, I am on anti hypertensives, diuretics and anti depressants, and should have consulted my doctor before starting this. At least I haven't cracked the herbals yet so Blair might do it when he in a good space.
But, I do feel pretty great and have woken up this morning with the healthy fruit and veges still implanted in my mind and had a beautiful, fresh pineapple, mango and raspberry with organic unsweetened acidophilus yoghurt smoothie. MMMMMMM.
So I think I will continue on with all these fruit and veges but will need lean steak, chicken, fish, eggs and legumes, gluten free bread (when desired) and other essentials to survive (is wine essential, surely it is??).
In other news:
