So far so good. Down 8lbs in 8 days and finally feeling the energy the book said I would. I will admit that the first couple of days while my body rid itself of the heavy toxins it had built up in it I didn't have much energy. I haven't exercised everyday but managed to get 4 days in last week. Today though - I feel very energetic and can't wait to get to the gym this afternoon and work up a good sweat.
I was getting a bit bored last week with the same food over and over again and then I re-read the Cycle 1 chapter. I think in my haste to get started I missed some very valuable information in that chapter. I made lettuce wraps this weekend and they were so good. The other thing I have found is the Epicure catalogue - they have lots of seasonings that are salt free and extremely low on carbs. I'm looking forward to making the Tazaziki with Greek yogurt when I get that spice. It's amazing what seasonings can do for food (instead of smothering things in cheese and salt).
Costco is my new favorite store to shop for produce - you get lots of it for a low price and it is great quality. Since we are eating a lot of veggies it definitely makes the most sense I have found. I'm excited to continue the journey.
Have a great day everyone!
