So hear you go my friend...
1. Eat real, whole natural foods, single ingredient foods as much a possible
2. Eliminate food from a bag or a box (aka processed foods)
3. Keep daily sugar intake to 15 grams or less (including fruits)
4. Eliminate alcohol - it's only 7 days...tough it out
5. Drink 3-4 liters of water daily
For each meal, combine a serving of lean protein (like 2 ounces of extra lean beef, 3-4 ounces of chicken, turkey or fish, 3-4 slices of turkey bacon, eggs, or 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter) with a serving of fruit and/or vegetables. You can also add in one snack a day (ie, raw veggies w/ 3 tablespoons of hummus, hard boiled egg w/ an apple or orange, 1/4 cup almonds, 1 apple w/ 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, etc.)
1 cup raspberries = 5.4 grams sugar
1 cup strawberries = 6.7 grams sugar
1 cup blueberries = 14.7 grams sugar
1 medium banana = 14.4 grams sugar
For my first breakfast, I tried the plan's berry berry green smoothie recipe (which had water, ice, unsweetened almond milk, protein powder, blueberries, strawberries and spinach). I've recently started drinking green smoothies, so I wasn't scared of the thought of adding spinach to a smoothie (or even the weird color that resulted from the combination.) However, this one was not one of my favorites, as it just wasn't flavorful enough for my taste. I'll definitely keep green smoothies in my meal plan, but I will be trying different combinations throughout the week.
Overall, Day 1 left me feeling a bit hungry. And since I eliminated my daily iced coffee (with creamer and sweetener), I did have a bit of a headache by the end of the day. I also overlooked the "one snack" reference and added in another snack to squelch the hunger a bit.
If you're interested in the full plan, just leave me an email in the comment section and I'll send you a copy of what I'm working from.
