My husband wanted to "jumpstart" his plan to get healthy and asked me to do a cleanse with him. I have done a fruit and vegetable cleanse in the past, but initially I wasn't too thrilled with doing another one (it's been many years since my last one). But, my husband said if I didn't do it with him, he probably wouldn't be able to go through it. I thought about it, and being the good wife that I am ;-) decided I could do a 9-day cleanse.
If anyone is interested, we are doing the Isagenix 9-day cleanse. It looks awesome, but I just hope I can survive the full 9-days. I am a pretty disciplined person, so I am thinking I'll make it. The first two days are "cleanse" days - that means only the cleanse with an accelerator, plenty of water, and some of their "snacks." I think those will be the hardest 2 days. Then, we get 5 days of shakes plus a lunch consisting of fruits, vegetables and protein. That is followed by another 2 days of cleansing.
My plan is to post our progress on my blog. I am taking before and after measurements - which I will share at the end.
We are in prepration phase tonight and my husband is full of questions - and complaints. Now mind you, he is the one who wanted to do this! He asked if he can have a beer during anytime in the 9 days - of course the answer is NO - are you crazy! He opened up the "snacks" and said he thinks our cat's treats are more filling than these. I was able to comfort him by telling him he could have an apple or 6 raw almonds or a celery stick if he got really hungry. Yes, my husband is off to the grocery store as we speak to buy a dozen apples and celery sticks (he already has the almonds)!
