Before I get started, I want to ask you a question.Â Tell me honestly what you think.
The last week or so has been pretty smooth sailing.Â I’m feeling great, lots of energy, wanting to get more physically active.Â I actually find that I have to slow myself down a bit because I don’t know how much longer I’ll be going without food.
This last week especially has opened my eyes up to how much rubbish we let our own kids eat.Â So there are certainly going to be a few changes on that front.Â The biggest one being, more veges.Â I’d don’t think they’re going to like it, but that’s too bad!Â Much like my own food habits (previously).Â They just eat the junk because it’s easily available.Â And they’re not into the habit of looking for a healthy alternative first.
Hunger â€“ Haven’t really been hungry very much at all.Â Still want to eat, but that’s still more out of habit than any real need.
Emotions â€“ Feeling pretty good on this front.Â In fact I think I’ve been a lot more patient with kids especially.
Mental Focus â€“ I just seem to be getting so much more work done than normal as I find it really easy to get focussed and started.Â Starting to knock off a few big jobs that I have been putting off for…. well lets just say a loooong time.
Physical Changes â€“ Over the last 4-5 days my weight seems to be stabilised around 84kgs.Â Some days it’s actually up a bit some days it’s down a bit.Â The only things going in are still salt and water, so it’s kind of surprising to me that my weight has stabalised.
A lot of people are starting to comment “have you been losing weight”.Â And yes, I have about 10kg now (93kg > 83kg).Â When I eventually get to explain what I am doing, it’s surprising how many people,Â look at me like a crazy person and write me off as a lunatic.Â But I guess ignorance has a way of creating fear in people.
Although weightl loss is the most noticeable physical change, it’s not really the goal.Â The primary goal is to detox and then in turn give me some time to break bad habits and think about the new food habits that I want to create.
My tongue is still really white.Â The photo below gives a bit of an idea what it looks like, but this photo makes it look quite pink as compared to what I see in the mirror.
One interesting observation.Â Even though I’ve been drinking lots of water (about 6-8L/day) my urine is still really yellow.Â I guess there’s lots of toxins to get out of my system and there’s only so many ways for it to get out.
That’s all for now, more next time.
