Happy Friday! I’m spending the day juicing.
In Crazy Sexy Diet, Kris Carr recommends a few all liquid days during the 21-day cleanse. At the outset, I was not so into this idea. What about my ravenous hunger? I didn’t think I could make it through a green smoothie and green juice day.
Twelve days into this cleanse, however, I feel differently. The crazy hunger for which I am known is gone, whether that’s thanks to all the extra water I’m drinking or the fact that my food cravings were probably just my sugar addiction screaming at me. Or my insane marathon training schedule. Or a combination of these. The point is, I haven’t really been hungry on this cleanse. I’m getting much more of the nutrients my body needs, so my cravings have subsided. And I feel great. So I decided to go for it. One day, all liquids.
In preparation, I stopped by Liquiteria last night and picked up two juices. I make my own often, but theirs taste so delicious that I thought I’d incorporate them in as a treat. In addition to these juices, I made three smoothies packed full of protein and greens. So far, it’s 4 pm and I’ve had two smoothies, 1 juice, 2 cups of herbal tea, and lots of water. Status: feeling fantastic.
