The Plan - by Lyn-Genet Recitas- Day 1

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

About 2 years ago I came across "The Plan" By Lyn-Genet Recitas . She encourages a person to go on a 3 day cleanse to remove inflammation and toxins in your body. Then you slowly "test" how your body reacts to other foods after eating them by noting weight gain or loss in addition to symptoms you feel in your body. She stresses that the number on the scale is just an indication of how your body reacted to the foods you ate.

Somethings I am going to watch while eating The Plan
- weigh loss
- sugar cravings
- complexion
- emotional stability (especially PMS)
- joint pain
- depression
- sinus stuffiness
- heart burn
- Tiredness
- bloating

Yesterday was DAY 1. I was spot on eating what I should I was hungry and irritable between the meals though. I drank my water for the day. I was tired after lunch and did sneak in an hour nap. I felt much better after that. I felt bloated and gassy most of the day but I think that was TOM coming.

I weighed this morning and I was down 1.2 lbs so yesterday was a friendly day for me. I also woke up before my alarm and feel alert and awake- instead of wanting to stay in bed. I bought some dandelion tea last night to enjoy in the mornings. I was really looking forward to it this morning and it was good!

This is a long haul process and I need to keep going, not look for quick weight loss.

I am a part of a professional choir that bases about an hour and a half from here. We are traveling to Duke University to perform this weekend. I will do my best with eating and get back on track on Monday when I return. I will stick with my No wheat, Sugar or Caffeine while I am gone and finish reading The Plan book.

What are you doing today to get your closer to your goals?!?

    Great first day! I love The Plan, did it January 2013 and got back to my all time low. Need to start it again as i gained a few pounds over the summer and "fudging" it doesn't do the trick.
    Today is my day 1!

    Looking forward to reading more of your journey with this!

    I really love the organic dandelion root tea from the Rebublic of Tea! I buy it regularly. So tasty!

    So much fun to be in that choir I bet!

    Sounds very "interesting".... I will look into this 'plan' thing... but I have learned that just eating healthy and in moderation is the BEST WAY TO GO!!!

    I will check it out though. Glad you are doing well. emoticon

    "the number on the scale is just an indication of how your body reacted to the foods you ate." This is very true for me and food sensitivities were key in finally getting my body to release and eliminate the fat. It can be a trying process but so worth it. Stick it out! You can do it!

    So glad you had a good Day 1! Isn't it wonderful when you wake up in the morning and you get out of bed easily? Have a good and safe trip!!

    You can do it girl! It's all about trial and error, you try something, see if it works, if it does, bingo, you stick with it, otherwise, time for another plan!
    Keep us posted and keep sparking!
