Day 1 is complete! I will say, they kind of made it easy on day 1 with fairly standard food choices. For breakfast I had eggs with kale and whole wheat toast. Lunch was a big salad with tons of veggies, and I used red wine vinegar as dressing. Dinner was 8 oz. of salmon filet with a lemon basil marinade, with boiled red potatoes, and steamed asparagus. For me, when I'm "eating right," my daily diet looks something like this. I took the day off from work to make sure I was on track, and cleaned the house and took care of a lot of Beachbody business as to make sure I wasn't tempted to eat something out of the diet plan. In retrospect, I should have had a snack as suggested in the afternoon, as I was pretty hungry again around 8:00 (I had to eat dinner at 5:00). I decided to have a greek yogurt, plain, non-fat, right before bed. It was only 100 calories and is a good choice as it digests rather slowly into your bloodstream.
The supplements were pretty easy to take. Before meals, you take the optimize, oxygenize, and mineralize supplements. That seems like a lot of supplements, but oxygenize is just a dropper bottle that you put into your water which contains iodine, chloride, sodium, and chromium. Mineralize is pure Himalayan salt, so by putting these two in your glass of water you are just adding some trace minerals. Optimize is a pre-biotic/pro-biotic blend. Once a day you take the alkalinizer, which is a green powder of supergreens that you mix with a little bit of water and can take as a shot. I have to say, this was not so tasty! But is just a small shot so it wasn't so bad.
I didn't feel any difference during the day, however I am writing this on the morning of Day 2. Surprisingly, the scale moved down 4 pounds overnight. I'm not going to say "I lost 4 pounds" because I know that isn't what happened. But it does go to show that my diet had gotten out of hand, whether I was retaining water, or what, from what I was eating daily, and having a "perfect" diet day and taking the supplements seems to have already had a shift on my body! I have lots of energy, my legs are a little sore this morning, but I did do some crazy working out on just Wednesday. The book said I might experience chills and mood swings, none of that so far! So here I am on day 2. The diet shouldn't be took difficult today, as I approach the first weekend I anticipate the first couple of challenges.
