The RESET Ends…A Peek Inside My Master Cleanse
by Rochelle Griffin
Here I am at the end of Week 3 of my master cleanse…thank goodness. This week focused on revitalizing and heading into a completely 100% fruit/veggie diet. For me this week was extremely tough mentally and physically. I’ve always said that I’d be truthful with you during these three weeks, so I will honestly tell you that I was HUNGRY this week.
By the second day, I was beginning to feel deprived and knew that I could never be a long-term vegan. Don’t get me wrong. The recipes, for the most part, were good. In fact, Keith made some awesome baked cauliflower that…no joke…tasted to me like burned marshmallows over a fire. I began to actually hallucinate about food. :O I just started to feel like I was on a diet and I didn’t enjoy that part. I was also beginning to miss working out. This last week definitely took every ounce of my perseverance to make it through. Without group support, I’m not sure that I would have lasted this week.
I started to become very tired of just having fruits and vegetables…bored in fact. Grains were an option for dinner and we always included them. I DID get creative with my fruit for breakfast and snack by baking them with cinnamon, which was fabulous. It tasted like pie filling but without the guilt! I also added in chia seeds daily, getting creative by making my own cashew milk to have with them. I simply needed more calories.
As with last week, Keith had to doctor some of the flavors. I’m not a fan of curry, so he came up with own recipe for the Curry Cauliflower and it’s an absolute keeper….remember it tasted like marshmallows!
It’s interesting because some people in my group found this week to be their easiest. This is why I tell you that you cannot compare your journey to someone else’s. It simply will not look the same.
Things I learned from Week 3 of my master cleanse, the Ultimate Reset Journey.
- Bundle up. I was colder this week than any other…and I’m NEVER cold.
- This isn’t a starvation diet. It’s OK to add in more food.
- I will never be able to be 100% vegan.
- Fennel is NOT my thing.
- I LOVE chia seeds with cashew milk.
In addition, I lost another 1.5 lbs for a total of 9 lbs and Keith lost 0.2 lbs for a total of 8.8 lbs. We both went yesterday and had our blood-work done. I will be doing a Post-Master Cleanse blog post next week once we get our results back. At that point, I’ll recap my thoughts on ALL three weeks, plus post our before/after pictures and our before/after measurements. In addition, I will explain our lab results and what they mean, what we feel we gained from the master cleanse as a whole, and IF we’d do it again or even recommend it to you.
