I ordered a 1 lb bag of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE). I did a lot of research before ordering this product about the pros and cons of consuming it.
Last night, my order came in from Amazon. I tried to get the entire DE into a mason jar, but my mason jar wasn’t big enough… I kept the rest in a ziplock bag until I can buy a container big enough to hold the DE, when and if I place another order…
I decided to try the DE before I went to bed. I made one cup with water another with OJ. (Both drinks were 8 oz and with 1 tbsp of DE mixed in.) I drank the OJ and gave the water one to my dad. I told him before, think of this as whey protein or soy powder, it’s gonna taste bitter, but you need to drink all of it. He drank the full 8oz of the water with DE. I told him once he finished, this will help with weight loss, give you more energy, help you sleep better, cleanse out your system, and will help with your memory. He said, wow and asked for another cup of the DE. I told him, that he was only allowed 2 cups, 1 in the morning/afternoon (depending if I was home or mom was) and a 2nd at night after dinner. OJ is definitely the better option… The DE doesn’t have a smell, but there is a slight gritty taste and a little bit of an after taste to it. I told my dad to drink water now until the after taste went away.
I kept waking up during the middle of the night to go potty; first was about 3:40a, second was at 4:45a, and lastly was at 6:34a. Every time I woke up, I felt wide awake and then would have to fight about 10 minutes to get back to sleep. Then I woke up at 8:05 am and decided to stay up.
I took the morning DE shortly after waking up. I weighted myself… I’m down 10 lbs since my birthday, 5 lbs since yesterday. YAY!!! (or 3 lbs since I don’t like to mess with my weight tracker…) I don’t feel or notice much of a change with consuming DE. I will keep ya’ll posted on what I’m going through over the next few weeks.
Until then… Hugs, Love and Laughter.
