As I posted on Tuesday, my fiance and I decided to kick start our healthy eating and exercise plan for the wedding with the Can Can Cleanse. With a little over three months until our wedding, we didn't want to do something drastic at the last minute, and instead go gradually. This cleanse is only for three days, and includes teas, juices and soups, so you are never in starvation mode or feeling too weak.
Being someone with not the best willpower against food (I'm Greek, it is hard to turn down a great meal), I thought I wouldn't be able to make it. Thankfully I did, and I saw amazing results. I did lose 4.5 pounds (fiance lost five), my skin looks more radiant, and I slept ten hours each of the three nights. Without going into too much detail, as I mentioned, this isn't one of the cleanses that makes you sick. You can do all your normal activities, work, etc. I had a very busy week, and I had no problems at all.
I wasn't able to work out per my usual routine, but I did walk and do yoga. As of right now, I still haven't eaten (you kind of don't want to disturb the peace!), but I'm about to re-introduce my first solid food , a hard boiled egg. So excited!
The philosophy of this cleanse is to give your digestive system a rest, and to re-program your outlook on food. I went to the market yesterday to have meals for the weekend, and I was pulling things from the shelves that I would never have in the past.
