I am done with my last Cleanse for this month. I plan on doing one cleanse weekly next month. The swelling from the bursitis is going down, though I am helping it along with some Alieve. My stats this cleanse are not nearly as glorious as the last cleanse. I didn’t lose 4-5 pounds in a week. I have pretty much maintained my weight loss. I have read a LOT of blogs and other postings about people stagnating at a certain weight, and realized that (even though I took a few days off of running this week) I am not consuming nearly enough food. You see the Isagenix shakes are 260 calories. So two of them come to 520 calories. The one apple I have been eating is about 50 calories. The snacks are about 30 calories per serving– so all told I’m consuming well under 600 calories for breakfast and lunch. With a 400-600 calorie meal at supper, I end up eating between 1000-1200 calories a day. When I am running, I burn around 400-500 calories (which negates the shakes). So I decided to add a 200-300 calorie lunch into the mix. This way I am consuming around 1300 to 1600 calories during the day depending on what I eat. We shall see if that has any effect on my weight loss. I also upped my flush tablets to two tablets at night instead of one. I figure anything I do can’t really hurt me too badly, as I am not eating junk food. Most of the foods I am eating are low-carb, gluten free, and low salt. I have had no sugar, no alcohol, and no processed foods in over 11 days.
