Veggie Flush- Results

I think the veggie flush went really well! I saw the scale move for the first time in a while, so hopefully it got things going. Because I missed carbs.

But hey 1.5 pounds in 2 days isn't bad!

Breakfast- Veggie Flush Day 1

POM Blueberry

The smoothie was a little bit tart- I might try more banana tomorrow.

Managing the plateau

The most frustrating part of trying to lose weight, is doing everything right and seeing zero results.

We hit the gym minimum 5 days per week, and do a hard 40 minute workout every time. I go on walks on my lunch hour, and I have restricted my calorie intake to pretty darn low- enough to keep my energy up and to keep myself out of starvation mode, but low enough that I should be seeing a change after 2 months of this. But this week, I weigh a pound more than I did last weekend, and the frustration is totally kicking in. In order to keep my motivation going, I need to push past this plateau.

So my plan is a 48 hour fruit and veggie flush- as in only fruits, veggies (and probably a bit of oil and vinegar dressing) and some tiny fancy potatoes, that i consider on the borderline of starch and veggie, because they are purple.

Davis is kind of doing this with me, he is cutting out dairy and starches, but eating meat still, because if we are using the broiler we might as well throw a steak under there.

This is the spoils of our trip to the grocery store:

Wish me luck!

48 hour veggie flush

This post is going to be short but sweet-

I am down 23 pounds since November, which is very nice.

BUT I am burning a lot of calories and working hard to do so, so I would like to do something to kick start the weight loss.

So On Monday and Tuesday I am doing a 48 hour fruit and veggies only flush.

I would love for people to join me, the plan is to eat all the calories I am supposed to, but only eat fruit and veggies. I think all the nutrients will boost my energy and get the weight loss going.
