This one is called Red Dawn
This is officially my 6th day on this juice cleanse diet. Whew!
I've already blogged about Day 1 Breakfast and Day 1 Lunch. But I must admit that I never really stuck to this diet alone (sorry!) because... well... I really felt so hungry! Oops! Although I did manage to just eat a cup of rice, a bunch of microwaved green leafy vegetable (saluyot and kangkong), 1 egg and 1 small baked milkfish which lasted me one whole day each day of this diet. It's still pretty healthy albeit limited. Plus one egg a day prevents breast cancer by 12%!, did you know that? I read that somewhere before... And when I need to work all night, I just make a veggie and tuna sandwich with cheese (So I guess I can really never go Vegan... I just love egg and cheese so much!) The rest of the time, I was taking my vegetable and fruit shakes. The regular food was just there when I really can't take the hunger pangs anymore. Coz when I get hungry, I get gassy and my tummy blows up like a balloon. That's one of the downside of having GERD which is why I can never manage to get a flat tummy no matter what I do. But lo and behold, after Day 3 on this juice cleanse thing (coupled with one regular meal per day), my tummy does look a bit flat these days. Plus I lost a few pounds too! Yey! It also helps that I've also been caffeine-free for 6 days now which means less acidity in my stomach therefore less gas and less bloatedness. I wish to continue that. I feel so much better without caffeine in my system! I feel more alive and awake! Weird huh? Well, that's coz the enzymes from the fruits and vegetables I've been ingesting are giving me so much nutrients that my body really needs.
Anyway, I'll share with you here the rest of the recipe for the 7 Day Juice Cleanse. If you have enough discipline in yourself to stick to it, please do. Don't be like me so you can experience all the healthful benefits it has to offer. As for me, at least my body is getting used to it now. I've been craving less and less for the usual food I eat which is a good sign. I'll continue incorporating the vegetable and fruit shakes in my diet and perhaps one day I'll just be surprised that I've given up fish, rice and dairy too. (^_^)
This one's called Dr. Oz's Green Drink

- I usually add water so it's easier to blend.
- When it gets bitter for my taste I put a little honey.
Here's the rest of the recipe starting dinner for day 1:
