Ultimate Reset Update – Days 8-14 (Second week done!) - January 14th, 2013

We just wrapped up week two on the Ulimate Reset.  One more week to go!  The biggest difference in week two was that we began eating all vegan.  Veggies, fruits, and whole grains.  No animal proteins including dairy.  Avoiding those things was not as hard I as I thought it would be.  But it was helpful to have a meal plan already established.   I hope to incorporate solid meal plans into our world after this process is complete.  My husband and I have discovered a few recipes that we enjoy (like Sweet Potato Red Pepper Bisque and Roasted Corn/Edamame Succotash) and at the same time we have found veggies that we do not enjoy (like Kale and Collard Greens).

Overall I will grade my husband as an A+ in this process and myself as a B+.  He has stuck to the program to a T.  I’m so proud of him. He as eaten every veggie asked of him.  Me…I have tried everything once and then skipped over the items I didn’t like (once I had a bite).   Self discovery:  I am not too adventurous when it comes to food.

Another difference in week two is that we added a Detox supplement.  We had to take this along with our other supplements 30 minutes before our meals, 3 time a day.  I will not miss this part.  🙂  It wasn’t the end of the world, but it wasn’t fantastic either.  We still each have 3 packets of the Detox left, so we are going to use it tomorrow just to finish the product.   The Alkanize (green stuff) is a supplement that we take daily throughout the Reset (it is basically a shot glass of grasses).   The first week I thought it was nasty.  Ironically this week I actually enjoyed it and thought it even tasted a little sweet.

This final week we continue to eat vegan.  The menu looks a little more strict.   Overall, I have still lost 5 lbs and my husband has lost a little over 8lbs.  We are both feeling energetic and not hungry (surprising). We just miss the things that we usually have in our daily lives.  But…only 7 more day to go!
