I was doing so good ... but last night I thought I might scratch someone's eye's out if I didn't put something in my mouth and crunch on it. Needless to say, my boyfriend was afraid to get into bed with me. I must have looked into the fridge about seven thousand times ... finally, I pulled out a bunch of Celery and just started chompin' down. That led to a can of garbanzo beans mixed with red onion, oregano, cayenne and a hint of EVOO and was all finished up with 2 tblspns of NUTELLA ... never have flavors exploded in my mouth or have I been so content. WARNING!!!!! DON'T DO IT. My ass is exploding like Mount St. Helen and I feel like an alien is about to bust through my stomach. The strange thing is, I was still 2 lbs lighter this morning.
Oh well, haven't quite decided what I'm gonna do from here. I'm thinkin, I know cayenne and lemon are great for the body so i might just drink h2o,lemon and cayenne (minus MS) during the day and a healthy, light, live, fresh dinner. Sort of like the slim fast plan ... what say you all?
LOL...well, I can admit to being there in my dreams. There is a jar of olives in my fridge that wont stop yakking at me and I am afraid to touch the bottle until my resolve is a tad stronger. I'm on day 17 and the house filled up with people and food last night here too and the smells were so tempting. I will admit to "licking" a corn chip and then throwing it out figuring the smidgen of salt was not going to hurt me and I needed to know if I could survive it or not. It helped....so thanks for the warning about bum explosions. That image will stick with me whenever I reach for my own NUTELLA! I dont see why you cant do what you are suggesting, and treating it as a modified juice fast, its just not The Master Cleanse anymore.
Thanks Zoe. I hope you make it to your goal. I'm actually back on it ... I had headaches all day, I was tired, and the dark circles under my eyes were already back. I'm just gonna act like it never happened and do another 15 days and then a lvr/glbldr cleanse.
