DETOX: 21 Day Standard Process Purification Program
Happy St. Patty’s Day!
Today is an interesting St. Patty’s Day for me….mostly because I will not be consuming any alcoholic beverages. Why? You ask… Because 11 days ago, I started a detox for the first time in my life. I decided to write about it today because I’m amazed at how amazing I feel just after 11 days on this wonderful program. I’m not selling the product… it’s just an honest review. The reality is…anyone can detox, but most of us don’t know how…and most of us quit after a few torturous days. This program really is easy to follow.
The program I’m following currently is. Standard Process’s 21 day purification program. This is a very reputable company that has been around since 1929. They are a “Whole Foods” supplement company…meaning they believe in using the finest ingredients in their products.
Do yourself a favor and follow this program. I truly am amazed at my personal results at this time. Below are a few of the basic’s of the program…
1.Avoid all proteins for first 10 days(Today is Day 11…I’m excited to get some healthy lean meat into my diet again) After 10 days, you can use select proteins(primarily fish and lean meat).
3. Eat whole, organic(if you can), unprocessed foods…twice as many vegetables to fruit…but as much as you want…
4. Take whole food supplements(this is what your paying for)
5. Drink PLENTY of water
6. Lentils or Wild/Brown Rice (1-2 servings a day)
7.Oils-high quality(coconut oil, extra-virgin olive, fish, flax, Grape Seed)
8. Refrain from Consuming or Using-ALCOHOL, CAFFEINE, TOBACCO—PLEASE TAPER OFF THIS BEFORE YOU START….I had a nice headache for about a day and half…just mild though. I was a huge coffee drinker.
9. Refrain from consuming or using-NUTS/SEEDS, DAIRY, GRAINS(except wild or brown rice), Processed or refined foods
CERTAINLY: ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL BEFORE FOLLOWING THIS PROGRAM.
Supplements Provided are as follows:
SP Complete: for shakes…provides amino acids, essential fatty acids, and other vitamins to support intestinal, muscular, and immune health.
SP Cleanse: supplements…containing whole foods and botanicals that help the body’s purifying organs–kidneys, liver, and intestines.
Whole Food Fiber–add to the shakes
SP Green Food–supplements…contains organically grown whole food concentrates from brussel sprouts, kale, alfalfa, buckwheat, and barley grass.
You’re probably asking…How do you feel about it so far???
So far I have experienced the following…
10 days in:
Lost 6 pounds so far (Started at 221)
Sleeping Great!… I get at least 7 hours and I’m out like a light…WARNING…Deep REM sleep with lots of Dreaming…
I don’t wake up in the morning needing to have a pot of coffee before heading to work in the morning.
Clearer Mind…I’m able to get more things done…
Increased positive mental attitude(PMA)—You are what you eat!
Regular Bowel Functions (This was a worry…as most people need that coffee in the morning..haha)
I’m not going to lie…it wasn’t easy the first 3 days I would say. I had a lot of cravings for food, coffee, and of course a drink at night after a rough day…but I would honestly say, that after day 3… it’s been easy. I always keep some vegetables or fruit with me…bags of baby carrots help a ton…they are easy to carry around. My shakes usually consist of the supplements provided, plus a banana, frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, frozen strawberries, and a scoop of my own high-quality Whey Protein Isolate. I’ve been able to avoid having the lentils and rice most days…I needed them more in the beginning. Now that I have meat back into the program, I imagine it will only be easier.
If you’re looking for something new and effective to change your daily eating habits, to lose weight, or just plain…FEEL BETTER! I can’t recommend this program enough. It may change your life!! I will post another following next week when I’m closer to the end of the program or right at the end.
Cheers(with a protein shake), and Happy St. Patty’s!
