7-Day Cleanse

7 days is a helluva long time to eat no real solid foods, and it might even seem like too long. How can that be healthy, you might think? Wouldn’t my body be going into starvation mode and storing more fat? Isn’t it just setting me up for binge-eating disaster or yo-yo dieting afterwards? And – most importantly – how in God’s good name am I supposed to survive a week without even a hint of nut butter, avocado, dark chocolate or red wine?! (And why would I want to?)

For me the most pressing question of all of those is the last one. I understand the cleanse and it’s nutritional benefits (about to share ’em with you :)), and I know it’s not setting me up for failure afterwards. Quite the opposite. But the idea of giving up 100% of my even healthiest comfort foods for a whole week? Very very scary. Not to mention (now that I’m halfway through day 4) very very insightful.

In the past 4 1/2 days I’ve desperately craved, in no particular order:

  • Potato cakes and dim sims
  • A huge steak with buttered green beans and a glass of wine
  • Donuts
  • Cadbury’s chocolate!
  • Jar after jar of nut butter
  • Cheese
  • Butter on my greens
  • Cream and raspberries
  • Souvlaki
  • Scrambled eggs and bacon
  • Fruit toast with jam and butter
  • Toast with butter and vegemite
  • Pancakes

And it’s not as though I eat all those things regularly! Some of them I never eat at all, so it’s interesting to observe my mind going through a desperate, almost clawing attempt to convince me I need to eat this stuff.

Actually, what I’ve found more interesting is that for the first 3 days these cravings were purely emotional. I wasn’t overly hungry, most of the time. I took my supplements and medical foods pretty much every 2 hours, and threw down some extra BCAAs anytime I felt truly starving, so it wasn’t really a physical need. I’ve also found it quite fascinating to observe how my mind works in terms of associating certain events or times of day with the ‘need’ to eat certain (even healthy) foods.

Anyway, I know you’re curious about what I’m doing here so here’s a basic outline:

the 7-day nutritional cleanse revealed!

  • The Charles Poliquin 7-day cleanse is something I learned about over a year ago, but was unable to attempt due to breastfeeding. When I first read about the cleanse it seemed truly INSANE, but I have to say that now that I’m doing it I don’t feel as though it’s as brutal as what it looks on paper. The long lists of supplements make it look kinda scary, but really we’re talking a small handful with each meal.
  • The reasoning behind the cleanse is that fat gain is primarily caused by stress, by toxins, and by malnutrition. When you follow the cleanse 100% you deal with all of these issues. Some of the main benefits (providing your cleanse is designed properly for YOUR needs), include resting the GI tract, liver, pancreas and adrenals, improving sleep quality, increasing sex drive and mental clarity, ridding your body of food intolerance, and – of course – improving body composition. Stay tuned for more of my photos as the week progresses.
  • It really is a ‘quick fix’, but it’s one that only supports and enhances nutrition and health, and it’s one that is absolutely worth it. Bloody tough though 🙂

what to expect

Aside from the above listed goodies, you’re also going to notice your mind feels clearer (usually after about day 3), your skin improves, and your stomach will shrink down noticeably. If you struggle with portion control then that will certainly be taken care of by the end of the 7 days!

But what about the downsides, I hear you ask. Well, it is full disclosure, isn’t it. Here’s some of the stuff I’ve founds tough/curious/worth noting:

  • I honestly think the hardest part is dealing with the psychological aspect of having to sit down with other people and watch them eat. This is actually even harder if they’re eating a truly wholesome meal, because there’s always a level of your mind thinking ‘how frickin’ stupid that I can’t eat lean organic protein and salad with avocado’. Remember the purpose and the benefits girls … of course if your nutritional history was 100% organic clean foods then you probably wouldn’t need to do the cleanse, so unless that’s the case just push that little demon back to where it came from.
  • Of course there’s no rule that you have to sit with other people while they eat, but for me that was important. It’s not about shutting yourself away from the world for a week. One of the major benefits for me is proving to myself that I don’t need to eat something just because it’s there, and that I do have the power to take absolute control of my food choices.
  • You have to be absolutely regular with your nutrition intake or you will turn into a grump evil bitch and then probably pass out afterwards. Planning is key.
  • It’s important to train on the cleanse (modified training), as it helps move the lymph and further detoxify. Yesterday I was patting myself on the back a little that I hadn’t needed a nap yet on the cleanse and actually hadn’t found it physically too tough. And then I did legs. I was seeing stars by the 3rd set of squats and my whole body was shaking after a piddly set of leg extensions. The RDLs nearly killed me, and when I went home I literally passed out for an hour and woke up feeling like absolute death on a plate. This is when the actual physical cravings set in, I needed some fat or protein. I was completely drained, really struggled to get off the bed and downstairs. I had my supplements instead which actually helped a lot, and went to bed extra early. This morning I woke up at 5.30am feeling refreshed, hungry but not dramatically so, and clear-headed.
  • There’s lot of other stuff I’ve noticed but I’ll save it for the next post 🙂

details!

Okay, so before I tell you what the cleanse actually entails it’s important to note that these dosages vary from the recommended use on the product label. Also, you should never try this cleanse without the supervision of a qualified healthcare or Biosignature practitioner, and the cleanse is tailored to each person’s needs and Biosignature. So you wouldn’t take exactly what I take. Finally, this is not usually something to jump straight into without an existing nutritional and supplement plan! Unless you have robot compliance and extreme motivation, because it will of course provide extreme results if done 100%.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

    Is there an ‘on a budget’ version where you can just use a couple of the supplements? Would the results be similar?

    1. Kat says:

      You could do just 2-3 days instead of 7; that’s still very worthwhile. The thing is though, when I worked it out the supplement cost is not going to come in much more (and for some people less) than a week of proper food.

  2. Gemma says:

    Hi Kat, just wondering what a BCAA is?

    Gemma

    1. Kat says:

      Branch chain amino acids 🙂

  3. Gemma says:

    Thanks Kat, also I am curious to know what ingredients are in your yellow drink in the pic at the top? I’ve been trying out Charles Poliquins meat and nut breakky and as soon I can afford the supplements I will do the 7 day cleanse too.

    1. Kat says:

      It’s called Inflam pX; great for gut health.

  4. Beverley de Valmency says:

    Roughly how much would a 7 day cleanse cost? My Biosig trainer mentioned an estrogen wash – is this something similar? Thanks, Bev

    1. Kat says:

      I’m not sure what he meant by that. It would be between 300 and 600, depending on the correct protocol for you.

  5. olive says:

    Im on day 6 of the 7 day charles poliquin cleanse and i agree with everything you have stated above. It really is tough. But its worth it, ive lost a couple of kilos which really wasnt what i did it for so that was a bonus. Ive got such a clearer mind.

    1. Kat says:

      Awesome Olive, nice work!
