Purification Program - Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Purification Program

 Question: “If you travel and are away from your blender what can you do to make your shakes?”

Here’s a tip for you…

  1. Measure out the correct amounts of each powder (SP Complete and if you are using it, Whole Food Fiber) into a single snack bag for ease of transport.
  2. Pick up a cold 16.9 or 20oz bottle of water (spring water if available) and drink half of it, leaving the remaining 8-10 ounces for your shake.
  3. When you are ready for your shake, pour the contents of the snack bag into the water bottle.  If you are worried about spilling, you can cut one corner of the bag, effectively creating a funnel.
  4. Shake vigorously and enjoy!

How Should I Feel Today?

Today will likely be a continuation of Day 2.  If you are feeling a bit awkward and not 100%, this is not uncommon.  Hang in there, as this should dissipate in a day or so.

If you have a coffee withdrawal headache, go back and look at our suggestion on Day 1 under “How should I be feeling today?”

Don’t be surprised if old symptoms you haven’t experienced in years begin to return during the program.  They should be of short duration and are considered a beneficial sign that your body is purging toxins and repairing underlying issues with your health.  Old injuries or conditions may resurface for anywhere from an hour to a day or more.

If you do experience any reoccurrence of past injuries or symptoms we’d love to hear about it!

Weight Loss:

Your weight on the scale will vary a bit, but have no fear, this is completely normal.  Don’t stress over whether you can see a difference on the scale yet.  Remember to stick mostly with Cruciferous Vegetables and minimize your fruit intake.  Not sure what Cruciferous Vegetables are?  Check out this article on Wikipedia.org.

Tip:

Healthy Fats – Naturally saturated fats such as coconut oil, avocado, butter – all these products are best if raw and organic. Once you are done with the Purification Program, you can add organic nut butters such as almond or cashew and organic eggs to this list. These fats not only help you burn fat but help your appetite feel satisfied.  These fats are ESSENTIAL to health.

Getting to Know Your Supplements:

Did you know that Gymnema is an Indian Herb used for over 2,000 years and literally means “Sugar Destroyer” (Gymnema Sylvestre)!  This makes this herb especially effective in reducing carbohydrate cravings and is a helpful addition to the 21 Day Purification Program.  If you would like to read more about this incredible herb from India, clink on this link.

Reminders:

Remember, don’t cheat… hang in there!  Eating even a small amount of “unapproved food” can cause inflammation and slow down the results you will receive from this detoxification.  If you are getting too fatigued, make sure you are eating frequently and then try increasing the amount of SP Complete in your shakes.  Also, as always, drink plenty of water.  This will help clear toxins faster and avoid constipation.
