I am on day 9 of cycle one and I don't know if this is related to the "cleansing" part of this cycle but am I ever having the weirdest dreams! They are so vivid and unlike before I started the diet, I seem to remember most of my dreams on waking. The other night I dreamt I was visiting the set of my favorite TV show, there is a bar set on the show and all the cast was there and they all sang "Oh Canada" to me! I actually woke myself up I was laughing so hard. The other odd thing about my dreams is that they often seem to be incorporating whatever I am reading, which is a bit scary particularly as I just finished a Stephen King novel. Yikes. I better switch to something light and funny, or better yet, a steamy bodice ripping love story. Hmmmm.
I'm still unsure of how the cleansing portion of the program works. I've never done a cleanse before and I always thought it involved a whole lot of ... well... an emptying out of the pipes if you know what I mean. Now on this program, going number one is not a problem, I'm running for the bathroom every 20 minutes it seems but as I have seen with many of you, number two is a bit more problematic. I did resort to red wine on Saturday to help things along but that is not really a long term solution, unless I move to France. I'm not too thrilled about taking laxatives and I don't know if we can drink juices that will help - if I do does that count as my fruit allowance for the day because of the sugar content? How is everyone else, um, getting along in this respect?
