The official date for the cleanse to begin is January 10th. That'll be the first day of my 21 day Adventure Cleanse! But today the pre-cleanse began. The rules for this week are as follows:
-Slowly remove coffee. Cut back to one cup a day by the end of the week.
-Cut back to no more than two alcoholic drinks a week and choose organic red wine.
-Drink lots of purified water.
-Reduce meat consumption to 3 to 4 ounces twice a week.
-Phase out gluten and dairy. Include no more than 3 servings of each over the week.
-Completely cut out processed sugar and refined carbs.
-Double up on the greens and have green juice a couple of times this week.
In addition I'm getting my cabinets in order, bagging up my supplements, making a couple of massage appointments, dusting off my rebounder and journal. Among other things :)
I'm using Kris Carr's "Crazy Sexy Diet" as my guidebook for this cleanse. I love Kris. She totally rocks!! I've watched her documentary "Crazy Sexy Cancer" over and over, whenever I've needed inspiration. I'll write more about her later.
