Before working with Terri I felt that I was already eating very healthfully, but wanted to try her …cleanse and see if it would feel any different.
Upon preparing for it with her, I found that one of its bonuses was that it also was a “whole body” cleanse in the sense that it made you take a look at other aspects of your life and how they integrate with your food choices, and choices we make in many ways on a day to day basis. Before the cleanse I often felt a “rush” of hunger periodically throughout the day, and assumed that it was just how my body worked.
• From the very first day of starting the cleanse I no longer had that “rush” feeling, but a calmer hunger instead. Plus I felt satiated longer. I didn’t find the cleanse to be limiting, even though it did exclude certain types of foods, but rather found it opening up to a whole world of other choices that I’d never tried before. Plus, since it was a one week commitment that I chose, I felt that 7 days was definitely doable.
• I felt that I had more consistent energy throughout the day, without lags………..by appearance I) feel that I did lose in places that I have not been able to lose before.
• I think Terri’s materials regarding the cleanse were very helpful. I also think the time she spent in our phone discussions, before, during and after the cleanse, talking about all if its aspects, and drawing out my personal trigger points to look out for, were very helpful. She made herself very accessible for discussion and interaction.
• I don’t seem to have the cravings I had before, or nearly as much of a sweet tooth–hard to believe, even for me. I also feel more of a general sense of calmness than before, even in my stresses, as though feeling more clarity. I do integrate other foods not included in the cleanse, but to a lesser degree than before, and continue to feel better, and find myself reviewing the discussions in my head that she and I had.
