I feel GOOOOOD today. Not kidding, full of energy, full happy tummy, healthy. And the bloating has gone down.
4 days in, I take this as a good sign.
It also doesn't hurt that I've shed some lbs, and two people have complimented me on looking "lean" this morning - I'll TAKE IT. TWICE ON SUNDAY.
Let's talk about the shakes:
I have heard a lot of griping about the shakes and, well, maybe I'm just not picky but I kind of like mine. I might have to make one for Haynes and see if she likes mine better, bless her heart she is NOT enjoying them!
They are thick - I'll give you that. But I dunno...that makes it more filling to me? Hell, I am weird.
Liz's current shake:
1/2 cup plain soy milk
1/2 small banana (too much nana makes it like gummy and funktastic - beware)
1 scoop protein powder (100% whey / chocolate)
1 Tablespoon Psyllium Husk (fiber)
*Special thanks to Dr. Ashley Group for lending me her amazing blender. It is getting a WORKOUT sister!*
The shakes definitely keep me full...I truly feel like if I WERE to eat, I would be miserable. It's definitely a departure from eating real food but I think it's an adjustment...but all in all, I have found it to be OK. Not terrible. Don't ask Mary Beth Bassett the same questions - she does NOT like the shakes!
I would love to hear what other people put in theirs? Heidi mentioned that she uses the banana and that others were using a scoop of greek yogurt which seems smart because of all the good microbial stuff up in there. I bought some fruit to experiment with but, for now, my recipe seems to be working.
Ask me on Day 15.
