Today is the first day of my Shake Diet Detox. This is a new beginning for me in a lot of ways.
Firstly, up until now, I’ve been vehemently against shake diets. When you have any kind of nutritional qualifications, just looking at the ingredients on these things would be enough to make you want to eat the packaging as a healthier alternative.
However, I do feel like years of putting just as much effort into my cheat days as the other days of the week have left me, shall we say, clogged up and sluggish.
The other thing is, I have a baby now. I have a child who will grow up copying me and learning from my example. I think it’s important that he learns from an early age that replacing solid food meals with formulated shakes is a perfectly normal and healthy thing to do. After all, half of his diet is liquid and in all honesty if I could get half my nutrition from being attached to a boobie, I’d do exactly the same thing!
That seems like a win any way you look at it!
So I had my final meal this morning and I made sure it was a good one: Speedy Pancakes from our 21-day Quickstart Meal Plan with chocolate sauce. Because let’s face it, if you’re going to have a final meal, it should have chocolate sauce. The fact I put chocolate sauce on everything is neither here nor there.
I’m only gutted I didn’t have any bacon.
Here’s the plan I’ll be following for 7 days:
For Breakfast and Lunch I’ll be replacing my usual food with a nutritious weight-loss shake. If you haven’t worked out already, I love chocolate, so I’ve gone with the “Chocolate Silk” flavour.
Also because the shake doesn’t come in bacon flavour.
In the evening I can eat a big salad. Lots of leafy veg here to let all the micronutrients flush my system of horrible toxins.
In between I am actually allowed snack bars if I do feel hungry, but my rep has assured me the protein in the shake (the powder serving has 10g and you mix it with milk to make up the nutrition deficiencies boosting it to 19g per shake) will keep me fuller than a centipede’s sock draw, and with 26g of sugar per shake, I shouldn’t be short of energy.
On top of that I’ll be taking some capsules too. There’s three different ones I have to take daily – Fruits, vegetables and berries. They’re “harvested when they reach perfect ripeness, and then carefully treated using a patented process for a maximum intake of healthful ingredients – every day.”
BOOM! Take that food.
This is going to be a real journey for me, not just physically, but spiritually too. I’m challenging a lot of my own scientific beliefs and taking a leap of faith, but it is the scientific method to test before drawing a conclusion. So it’s only right I give this a fair shake. (See what I did there…?)
But here’s the best bit…
You can do it with me!
I have a bunch of shake and pill packages here and I’m going to GIVE AWAY 5 of these to the first 5 people who contact me through this link to say they want in:
I expect to lose 7-12 pounds in this 7 days alone. Just click the link above and you can get in FREE before I put this on sale.
Right, just 2 hours until my first shake. Whether you’re coming along for the ride or you want to just watch how I get on, wish me luck! 🙂
