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%.

✨✨ Success Frequencies.

Let’s talk about them. Breathe them in. ALLOW them in. And then dial them TF in.

Are you ready?

There are certain ways of being, of operating, of thinking, and perhaps most in particular of expecting which are currently dictating your outcomes in every area of life.

You are, quite literally, coded. Programmed. Running on a frequency of … X.

With X being, well – whatever you see around you most days. Whatever you experience. Feel. Know to be true. Receive and hold onto. Receive and do not hold on to. Or do not receive at all.

There are certain things in your life which right now you can click your fingers and command to replicate, on repeat, and they do.

And there are other things which SHOULD be in your life, which you yearn to have in your life, which sometimes you get a glimpse or a taste of or even an entire mouthful, and then they’re gone, into the night, maybe never to return again, shrouded in mystery and frustration but yet at the same time that deeper part of you knows –

it’s not supposed to be like this.

It shouldn’t be.

I don’t accept it!

And I WILL move past.

You look into the future you see inside of you and you know that it is ALL real, ALL available, ALL true, ALL there for the taking. A virtual sushi train of wondrous life options, every one of ’em just a choice you can pluck off as it rolls on by! Don’t see what you want, not exactly? All you gotta do is ASK, and it’ll be freshly made for you!

Your belief around the impossible is OFF THE CHARTS.

And it always has been.

Your PROOF, of CREATING and ALLOWING the impossible is also pretty darn off the charts, if you do say so yourself. Which you don’t have to, because others do it for you!

It’s ALWAYS been this way for you, you’ve ALWAYS been able to dance between realities and choose the one you wanna keep.

But yet –

it feels, so much of the time, as though you’re teetering.

Teetering on the edge of will I / won’t I let myself FULLY go and receive, create, allow, BE –

or will I fall back into normal, into rules, into worries, into shoulds, into the dreaded dreaded fear that it’ll somehow all just stop working and I’ll find out there was never anything special about me at all, never anything wondrous about what I could do, and that I just somehow … fluked things for a bit.

Sometimes you’re CERTAIN which way you’re going to topple.

And other times you’re terrified you have no idea at all, and if you did you wouldn’t want to know.

But what you do know is this:

When things are working.

When things are flowing to and through and from you in the precise ways they should be.

When things are OH so yes.

When it’s all just coming together, the different areas of your business your money your life and YOU just rolling PERFECTLY, like a beautiful and impossible to replicate orchestra, pure MAGIC –

it’s not because of what you did.

It is not because of how you planned, followed the plan, did it right.

It’s not a list you ticked off that made it that you got to then GET.

It’s not because you followed RULES for success.

Or really anything at all.

It’s because you were playing life on a certain frequency. You were tapped in, dialled in, LEANING all the way in to something you can’t even fully describe but you KNOW when you’re in it.

You were, not to be too corny or cliche about it but we’ll say it anyway ’cause it’s true – one with life itself. Dancing the most beautiful dance of BEING FULLY YOU with the wind beneath your wings nothing other than God and truth and the very fabric of the universe, what else could it be?!

Put simply:

you had those Success Frequencies switched on to high AF, and you were using ’em.

Want to know how to do that more, in fact any time you choose, in fact with complete calm understanding of what it is you ARE doing and how to tap in and BE in that energy, that place, that receiving, at will?

It’s always been available.

It’s ALWAYS been right there for the taking.

EVERYTHING you’ve suspected this whole time is true.

And now?
We’re gonna get you understanding it (every last bit).

Living it (as naturally as breathing).

And UTILISING it to let life unwind to the places you’ve been waiting to be (the way it’s meant for you).
