Purification Program - Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of the Purification Program

Just a friendly reminder: corn is not a vegetable, it is a grain and there are no grains allowed on this program (with the exception of organic wild or short grain brown rice).

Also, remember that although something may be healthy (such as beans and nuts), it may not be allowed during the purification program due to other factors (such as potential food allergens).  So, with this in mind, remember: no beans (except lentils) or nuts of any kind.

How Should I Feel Today?

You should be feeling more energetic today and the cravings should continue decreasing.  Many have expressed that they have not only learned to ‘tolerate’ the shakes, but have even come to enjoy them.  Yes, yes, it’s true!

We mentioned yesterday that your sleep should be improving.  You should find that you are able to fall asleep easier, enjoy more restful sleep, and are able to sleep through the night more often.  The good news is that this should continue throughout the Purification Program and beyond (as long as you maintain some of your newly forming good habits).

Weight Loss:

If you haven’t started exercising yet during this program, now is an excellent time to use some of your returning energy and start.  Remember, exercise is an essential part of losing weight during this program. If you need some great ideas or locations for a variety of exercise options – please call or email Dr. KarenJ

Tip:

To increase your detoxification level, consider experiencing a far infrared sauna.  We are lucky enough to have a beautiful facility at Conscious Touch right in our building at 6 Maple Street, Northboro: http://conscioustouch4urhealth.com 508-320-5360. Fees range from $25 – $35 or can be purchased in packages. It’s a great way to spend time with a friendJ This type of saunas detoxifies much deeper than a regular sauna.  You can read more about it at http://www.sunlighten.com/infrared-sauna-health-benefits.html

Reminders:

Don’t wait to get hungry.  Waiting increases cravings, lowers your blood sugar level and can lead to fatigue.  Try to have your SP Complete Shake first thing in the morning and keep some approved snack foods around to munch on to keep your blood sugar and energy levels up.

Recipe of the Day – Guacamole

Ingredients:

2 Organic Avocados- peeled and mashed

1 clove minced garlic

1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

½ chopped tomato (use less if diabetic)

Salt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

 Directions:

 Mix all together thoroughly and put avocado seed back into bowl to prevent turning brown.

Tip: although you can’t have tortilla chips (always a favorite with this dip) you can enjoy a nice crudité with your guacamole by slicing up some raw vegetables (or using them whole if you prefer).  Whole cherry tomatoes, sliced carrots and celery are always favorites.
