I did a little research and the perfect cleanse for me jumped out! It was made by the guy from the documentary Joe Cross and Dr. OZ or at least it was endorsed by Dr. Oz hahahaha. It is a 3 day cleanse with a meal at the end of the day. They suggest only fruits and veggies for this meal but I am going to make a vegan lentil soup so I get a little extra protein from the lentils so I can still train for my half marathon.
I am going to do this for 4 weeks, every Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday will be cleanse days for me and I will do smoothies, juice, homemade salads, and keep it as free of processed foods as I can (on my budget) for the other 4 days of the week. I will start this Sunday and do it this week, next week (the 23rd) the next week (the 30th) and my last week will be a little different. I will be skipping Sunday the 6th and instead doing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday that week. The 6th is my BF and I’s 1 year anniversary and he is taking me out to dinner 🙂 and in full disclosure I plan on picking up a whole pizza just for me on my way to work or having one delivered the day of the half marathon lol. So that is 2 days I will be a little off of my eating but otherwise I am going to try and keep it as clean as possible.
