Detox: Day 3
I might as well update with the end of my detox, since I’ve finished it! Here’s what I ate:
- Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, hash brown patty, coffee with almond milk, 1/2 banana (other half fell on the floor, sad face)
- Lunch: NOTHING, too busy working, grar
- Dinner: Over easy eggs, hash brown patty (I’m obsessed with these currently), sauteed onions, 1/2 avocado, glass of cranberry juice
- Snack: Coconut milk ice cream
I even cheated a little at dinner, since I cooked my eggs and onions with a little bit of butter. Oh well. After this day, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to end my detox at 3 days, or go on for 5. I ended it at 3, and have eased back onto grains and dairy slowly. Happily, it’s taking less food to fill me up, even after only eating smaller amounts for such a small time period. I’m also trying to take the focus away from carby, cheesy crap when planning my meals, and I’m satisfied with less. I’d say the experiment was a success!
Today’s calorie count came in at 1,315 with a nice carb deficit of 44. Much better, even with the skipped lunch.
