I have been sorting out all my clothes. I have tipped the entire contents of my wardrobe on my bedroom floor, throwing thing out that are too big and finding things that I can now fit into. It was genuinely a really great feeling.
Today I put on some jeans I haven’t worn jeans in 4 years, the reason is because I find them uncomfortable and there’s not much give. I like clothes that stretch.
The jeans I wore did not only fit but they were a little baggy.
It was still a good feeling though.

I can’t believe that I have been going for 80 days and lost almost 40lbs.
There are 8 rules to abide by on this diet, and number 1 is not to mix your proteins. The reason for this is because it produces different types of amino acids and your body takes time to process it. So it is better to just choose 1 per meal.

Weekends are so different than in the week. I find it a lot harder to exercise so I have missed my walk today.
When I eat food, Jenny tells me to take an apple cider vinegar tablet before hand. It’s good for breaking down the fats.
I take a tablet but you can also drink it or put it on salad.

Had training again this morning and I walked 2.2 miles on the treadmill, all on an incline.
I also did 150 sit ups followed by 20 minutes of boxing. My boxing was so much better than last week, I think my strength has come back.
Before I started this diet, I used to get really tired half way through the day, even if I hadn’t done much that day. Now I have so much more energy, I can last the whole day now.
I also used to have reflux which caused me great problems when eating. My food would cause acid from my stomach to come back up it would cause pain in my throat and on very rare occasions I would throw it back up. I have managed to control it for many years by drinking water between bites. I have found lately though that I haven’t done this for a while.
I am very happy with these improvements I hope they continue.

I was having a life group at my house today so I got out the biscuits, and its the first time in a long time that this bothered me.
I have had people really interested in my diet asking how I am doing it. One question that keeps coming up is why can’t I have milk because I need it for the calcium and strengthening my bones.
When I saw Jenny yesterday I asked about this, she said there is so much more calcium in the vegetables I am eating than you can get in a whole carton of milk.
I went walking with mum today she wanted to go a different route than just around the block. It was a nice change.

I haven’t seen the nutritionist for 2 weeks as she had been away. Today was the first visit since she got back. While she was away I managed to look through the information that she gave me when I started the detox.
The thing that caught my eye the most was that I have a very high level of Uric Acid. I asked her today what that meant, she said that if I had of continued at the same rate I would have eventually got gout, diabetes or even osteoporosis, amongst other things.
This has helped me understand why I have been recommended to eat certain foods and not others. Since the detox I have been eating foods that are more alkaline like vegetables and stop eating foods that are too acidic like red meat. This should bring my Uric Acid levels back in balance.

Went for another walk again, we didn’t have to much time as there were people due round in 25 minutes. So we did the shorter block, I don’t think I have ever walked so quick in my life. We made it back in time!
The rest of the day though I was so tired. I think I have overdone it over the last few days

So so happy that I am finally under 19 stone.
I was really shaky in the morning, probably because of the lack of food yesterday. After lunch I felt so much better.

Saturday 12th March 2016.
I have had a bad stomach for a few days now, this morning though it was particularly bad so I didn’t eat breakfast. 2 o’clock came and I still wasn’t hungry, I was however concerned about not eating anything. I rang the nutritionist and she said have a vegetable smoothie.
It was really disgusting and I had to really force it down, but it really did do the trick though.
I felt a lot better by the evening, I still wasn’t hungry but I did eat a proper meal.
I had only eaten 531 calories today.

Had another training session today, it was the first time I got my boxing gloves out since the detox.
I feel like I have lost a lot of my power. I don’t seem to have the energy that I had when I was consuming more calories.
I felt a little disheartened today as my weight really is not budging at all. I went out for a healthy meal for dinner. A change of scenery and new flavours really did help.
