It’s day 5 using their sample Phase 1 menu. My grocery bill was $100 higher than usual last week purchasing these foods. The detox headache and fatigue has decreased considerably. My older daughter, who has health issues, is doing the diet with me. She eats so little normally that she is able to gain weight on this diet, a real blessing for her. I have lost 2 pounds so far. I hope your diet is going well.

The foods on the sample menu must be too sophisticated for a farmer’s wife. I was unable to choke down some of the smoothies; other recipes containing ginger root or turmeric were too spicy. I am looking forward to my own menu using the approved food list, starting Monday.

Just before Christmas, a bracket broke in the back (I currently wear braces). The office (a 1.5 hour drive) was so busy that they were unable to replace it during my appointment on Tuesday. I had missed a snack and a meal, so my younger daughter and I stopped at a bar and grill before seeing a movie. The garden salad with grilled chicken was perfect! I had the balsamic vinaigrette dressing on the side so I could limit myself to 1 Tb. After arriving home, a quick evening snack kept me satisfied until morning. It was a good day.
