Purification Program - Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the Purification Program!

The most important thing to remember today is why you are going through this program.  Keep your mind focused on your goals and remember… it’s only 21 days!  Let’s get started!

How Should I Feel Today?

Usually, the first day is not too bad.  You should experience some minor cravings, but most people don’t really notice too much on the first day.  If you are a heavy coffee or soft drink user, you may begin to experience some withdrawal symptoms from the caffeine or sugar.  This is perfectly normal and should subside over the coming days.  If you experience a terrible caffeine headache, you may try brewing a little organic coffee and taking just a few sips, (Don’t overdo it here), and the headache will likely disappear.  You should find you only need to do this for 1-2 days maximum and then you should be off the coffee altogether.

Weight Loss:

For those wanting to lose weight, you should notice a loss of about 1 pound per day during the first week or so.  The best way to determine the loss of body fat is to measure your waist as well by using a measuring “tape” right around your belly button.  Suck in your gut as far as you possibly can and get your measurement.  You will repeat this every week throughout the program.  The average ‘inches lost’ around the gut ranges from 1-5 inches during the 21-day program.

Remember to limit your intake of fruits because they contain fructose.  Ideally, for weight loss, your fruit consumption should be almost zero and limited to only berries (which have a very low glycemic index) in your shake. Apples are also low in glycemic index.

Exercise:

During the next few days you may not feel up to much exercise, but as soon as you can begin some moderate exercise.  This is not the time to train for a marathon, but daily exercise with sweating is tremendous towards helping you lose weight!  An evening walk is a good place to start.  Once you gain more energy and strength start to lift some weights. If you want any great ideas for effective and fun types of exercise – contact Dr. Karen
