The Post soulmatefood Juice Cleanse Food Diaries



As promised; here are my adventures in eating since my juice cleanse finished 7 days ago. In terms of weight, I've regained 2lbs but I am 75% sure that's due to hormonal water retention! 



My skin is still significantly better, my sleep is vastly improved and I am able to have JUST ONE snack if I have to have a box or packet open. That is pretty huge. The extended cleanse experience taught me how to sit with cravings and ride them out, as well as self control!! I am eating every 2-3 hours and it's working out great. In terms of my eating habits, this is probably the longest I've ever managed without totally freaking out and going on an epic weight loss mission/purge-fest. 



Anyway, here's what I've been mindfully munching away on:

I'm going to keep track of what I'm eating again. It used to be terribly triggering but now it's serving as a reality check when the anorexia demon starts trying to convince me that I've vastly over-eaten. 



5 days of juice was totally worth it! :)
