Hormone Reset - Tweaks I am Making
I am on Day 5 of The Hormone Reset Diet, currently on Sugar Free, resetting my Insulin. The stuff I am sharing today, began Day 1, but I am just now getting time to write about it.
Dr. Sara sells her protein shake and fiber powder that you can use for the reset. To be honest I am not using them at all. I have been using my Young Living Power Meal as my shake. The reasons I chose Power Meal were that I had it in my house when I started and I had already researched the product. With two weeks left of school, I did not have the time or energy to research another product. So I used what I knew and had. I am also not using any fiber powder. In my body, fiber powder acts like glue so instead of cleaning me out, it stops me up. I have gone back to using my Young Living ComforTone. It is kind of like doing the cleanse I did last summer, but with a specific dietary plan to go with it. I cannot wait till weigh in and measurements on Saturday. I can tell my stomach is smaller, quite a bit smaller.
One of the hardest things for me is eating a pound (or more) of vegetables a day. I don’t really like vegetables that much. But I am committed to doing this. She wants you to eat vegetables with every meal. I decided to do six ounces a meal. I keep telling myself “I love eating vegetables”. Now this is said with dread on my face and a scowl on my face. As the week goes, it is getting harder and harder. I am not sure why I decided to start this the last two weeks of school - exhaustion, lack of energy, a little crazy or all of the above. I need to research new and interesting ways to prepare veggies, but really don’t have the time. I guess, I can look up recipes as I have a few moments, pin them on Pinterest. Then when school gets out, I will have more time to learn how to prepare them. For now, I will just keep eating the vegetables – a pound of vegetables – every day. Did I tell you how much, “I love vegetables.” ?
I have begun pinning veggie recipes on Pinterest. If you follow me, they are under my Clean Eating/Paleo board. If you don’t currently follow me, you can follow me HERE. As soon as school gets out, I will start trying them. I will do recipe reviews of the ones I try.
