Day 2 of Dr. Oz’s 3 Day Cleanse

So, I’m on day 2 of Dr. Oz’s 3 day cleanse. If you missed day 1 you can find it HERE.

The bath was fantastic last night and I slept well.

The night before I sliced up a banana and measured out 1 cup of raspberries and froze them both for the morning drink. It was SO much better this way. I actually could drink this in lieu of breakfast several mornings a week.

Ok lunch. I COULD NOT fathom trying to get the two glass lunch drink down again. So I switched it up. I eliminated the cucumbers and celery from the drink itself and it was actually quite tasty. Then I snacked on the missing cucumbers and celery all afternoon. I know that more vitamins are released when juicing, but I just couldn’t do it. I did however chew everything really, really well. :)

So it’s a cheat, sort of.

Dr. Oz 3 day cleanse 006

Once again I had a really busy day so there wasn’t a lot of time to think about food and I didn't need the afternoon “snack” drink. I wasn’t hungry. Hubby says given that Dr. Oz has 30-40 pounds on me I needed to keep in mind that perhaps a smaller person doesn’t need all the food. Made sense to me.

By 3 pm I was really tired. This was difficult as I still had so much to do so the afternoon was a bit of a challenge. I did finally lay down for 20 minutes and spent the entire time thinking that the people who commented “I have SO much energy!” must have been lying.

I did not suffer any headaches but I wanted roasted chicken in the WORST way.

What food do you dream about?

Dear Laura, You are very, very brave. It is so hard to be on a regimented menu even for 3 days. Switching it up a bit was a good idea, The crunch of the celery would have helped me a lot!

Lets see, I cannot remember dreaming about food, except when I can't have it! Ha!

One more day! You're a brave woman.

You can do it Laura! Good idea about the lunch drink. Drink lots of water too - that will keep the headaches away.

Sounds like it is going well, and you are finding the right ways to tweak this cleanse for YOU! I have been craving roast chicken lately too. But way too hot here to turn on the oven. xo

I grinned about being tired. That's generally the effect starting any diet or such thing has on me. Then, I get the surge about three days in. Hoping for your surge today.

What do I dream about? Oh, that's easy. Fettucine Alfredo with shrimp and scallops. It's my favorite dish in the world, and since it is a heart attack on a plate, I have it rarely.

But that doesn't keep me from dreaming.

Good luck on finishing up! I find that any time I'm told NOT to eat something, suddenly that's all I can think about. I've never tried a cleanse, but have thought about it.
