3 Day Detox Fruit Flush Diet - Day 2 -
Helen Nguyen | On 30, Apr 2012
Today is Day 2 of my 3 Day Detox Fruit Flush Diet. I woke up in the morning feeling hungry, usually I can easily ignore it by just staying in bed and fall back to sleep. But today the hungry feeling wasn’t like how it usually would be. It turned into a stomach pain. You know, the feeling when you haven’t eaten for a long time. Then you stop feeling hungry, all what’s left from it is the pain of hunger and that was what I had. So I had to forced myself to get up and fix something to eat.
8AM: 2 cups of cantaloupe
10AM: 2 cups of strawberries
12PM: 1 banana
2PM: 2 medium apples
4PM: 1 large mango
6PM: 3-6 cups of raw, fresh leafy greens salad with 1/2 avocado and 1-2 tbsp of olive oil. You can also have it with 12oz of whey protein shake. Use 5 tbsp of whey in the protein shake.
I had mostly the same like in the diet menu, except for the salad. I had my salad with cucumbers, no avocado nor protein shake. I can’t stand the thought of swallowing that protein shake again.
Today’s mood was different from yesterday. I didn’t feel lightheaded, but the headache was still there and it lasted pretty much all day. Other than that, there was that stomach pain. It wasn’t bad, it was tolerable but at one point I got really sad, for no reason. Well not completely for no reason but it shouldn’t affect me that strongly. So I’m not sure is it because of the diet is making me more emotional?
This weekend I didn’t feel motivated, there were things need to be done but I couldn’t lift myself up to that stage that I could start doing things and moving around. The first day of the diet, I still got a bit of energy. But the second day, I just wanted to crawl back in my bed and stay there. And that’s what I did, not all day but for a good few hours.
Now towards the end of the night, the stomach pain is gone. My mood is somewhat up-lifted/normal, still have a bit of headache. By the way, my stomach is super flat now – like it doesn’t have anything in there anymore. The flatness may look good, but I can’t wait to the fruit flush diet to be over.
Oh, but funny enough, I don’t have any cravings. Sure I thought about all kinds of food and coffee. But surprisingly I’ve been able to stick with the diet and not having any serious cravings…yet. I also noticed there isn’t any remarkable change in my skin either.
