Started Clean Program


I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Mine is just flying by. I realized today that I have only 20 days left of school! So excited, but not for the finals...yuck!

Some of you may remember that I had bought the book "Clean" by Dr. Alejandro Junger and that I went on to buy the clean kit. I was planning to start the 21 day total detox after my half marathon. Well, I started yesterday. The basis of the program is to have two shakes a day, one for breakfast and one for dinner and eat one meal at lunchtime. There is a simple list of foods to include and exclude and pretty much has you eating a very clean diet. The kit includes the supplements that Dr. Junger recommends. 

Yesterday I made a shake with the Tropical flavored powder and added a mango. It was pretty good. For lunch I had a salad and later snacked on some raw almonds. The dinner shake was the chocolate orange flavor and I added cherries. 

I have to say that I do have a bit of a headache today, I'm sure it is from not having coffee in the morning, which I have replaced with green tea. Lunch today was some quinoa with cauliflower, asparagus, beets and some Raw Coconut Curry Soup, which is a Cafe Gratitude recipe that I love and have made several times. 

Through this cleanse I am hoping to feel lighter, have more energy, clearer skin and to reduce my cravings for starch and sugar. I will keep you posted on my progress. If you have not read "Clean" I recommend it, it is a great book. You can do the program without buying the kit as well. 

One quick thing before I go... after I received the kit in the mail one if the "wellness coaches" from Dr. Junger's company called me to see if I had any questions about the program or needed any support. Pretty amazing... when was the last time you got service like that...never!

Hope you have a great day! :)


  1. I have read the book and found it very interesting. Lots of raw food in there but not all of it.

  2. Hello! Question - how can you fully do the program without buying the kit? My friends have pointed me at some comparable protein/fiber powder but not sure about the pills...

    Thanks for your insight!


  3. Lynn,

    If you purchase the book "Clean" he tells you exactly what to eat and not eat. It is pretty much a shake for breakfast & dinner and regular lunch.

  4. This site was... how do you say it? Relevant!! Finally I have found something which helped me.
