Day Seven of The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee

Oh Wow! I made it through day seven of The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee and I am stil going strong. I am actually feeling better in that I have for some time and I’ve had absolutely NO upset stomach… NOT ONCE, during this entire week. Usually I have to drink Gingerale to calm my tummy several days a week. So, what I have been eating obviously is not really good for me! Something at least?

So, how do I solve this challenged? I believe I will stay on the cleanse diet and gradually add in one of the food items that I had been eating on a regular basis (obviously it is NOT my morning oatmeal) and find what it is that upsets my tummy and delete that item from my diet, even if it is a favorite. And I will also continue consuming more COLD Filtered Water than I had in the past.

Now that I am done with the cleanse I looked at the brochure that came with it and it suggests adding a MultiVitamin and a good Protein Powder to your diet. I am adding Shaklee’s Vita-Lea Gold (with Vitamin K), Herb-Lax, amd NutriFeron (an Immunity booster). My protein choice is Shaklee’s Life Shake Plant Protein Powder (see below) that I wrote about on Day 6 (Friday). You can find any of these items in my online store at: Any and ALL orders will be Greatly Appreciated.

Life Shake Plant Protein Powder
also comes in Soy as shown in this image.

It has been a pleasure sharing my experiences as I participated in The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee.

Day Six of The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee

I’m almost to the end of the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse and I have used so much Dental Floss that I thought it important to mention that you might want to make sure you have some around when doing the cleanse. Why? With all the veggies that I’ve consumed during this Cleanse I have managed to wedge lots of small pieces in between my teeth and Dental Floss has been my salvation.

Today was like most of this week. Oatmeal and toast for breakfast with one cup of coffee. 16 ounces of COLD water with my MORNING pills and supplements.

As I went through my work day I snacked on Fuji Apples and COLD water. Lunch again was as pictured in my post on Day TWO.

On the way home I picked up more Organic Blueberries and Strawberries. I really like the way my Oatmeal tastes with them on it and seasoned with Stevia so I’m going to continue eating it that way even though the 7-Day Cleanse will be completed on Saturday.

My snack this afternoon, at home, was half of an Avocado, celery sticks and apple slices.

For my evening meal I think I’m going to have a smoothie using Shaklee’s Life Shake Plant Protein Powder, a Banana, frozen berries and a cup of Coconut Milk.

For those who are interested, I still am having NO headaches from cutting WAY back on my Coffee intake and my personal energy level is actually better than before starting The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee. I was afraid that only having fruit and vegetables would not be enough to keep me going but by adding in occasional salads, a banana, some beans and LOTS of COLD water… Life is GOOD!

And yes, the “Cleansing” has NOT stopped. By the end of the week I expect I will be “squeaky clean” inside if my trips to the bathroom are any indication. Reminder to those who want to do the Cleanse… have plenty of Toilet Paper on hand. You’ll need it! But then, that’s a good thing and a big part of the purpose of doing The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee.

Hopefully I’ve covered any questions you might have. If not, my email address is below. Feel free to ask questions!

Tomorrow will wrap this up and THEN WHAT? Doing the Cleanse and then going back to doing what I had been doing would be self destructive… to my way of thinking. So I will begin taking a really good Multivitamin and having a smoothie every morning (after my oats) to ensure I get enough protein in my diet. More on this tomorrow…

Day Five of The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee

Welcome back. Day Five is just about done and I had good energy ALL day long. I had the same breakfast as the last two days and took the MORNING pills that come in the pack of The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee. LOTS of Filtered water with those pills and my regular supplements. Yes, still just ONE cup of coffe… down from sometimes four or five cups a day. Amazingly I am having NO withdrawal symptoms or headaches!

Throughout the day I constantly snacked on sliced apples, carrot sticks, broccoli and cauliflower and MORE Cold Filtered water. By mid-morning nature called and I am pleased to report that things are getting back to more nearly normal shape and color. Hope that’s not “too much information” for anybody but the purpose of blogging throughout the Cleanse was to share how I have been effected by the cleanse and since a major thing that happens during a cleanse is your personal “sewer system” gets cleaned out… I’m reporting on that as well.

My evening meal will once again be a large salad seasoned with oil and vinegar with Cold Filtered water followed by the NIGHT pills from the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee.

“I had hoped that I could report success with having slept all the way through last evening but I believe I was still consuming LOTS of water too late in the evening and that feeling that tells you… “either go now or you’ll soon swim to the bathroom” came over me and that was my wake-up during the night. It was certainly NOT from nerves, sleeplessness, wrestlesness or anything else.

That’s all I have to report this evening.

Check back as I wind down the last two days of the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee.

Remember, if you would like to do a cleanse and ‘Reset’ your systems… you can find the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse on my website at: There… you should click on SHOP. Then click on PRODUCTS. Then scroll down to Healthy Solutions and to the far right you will find the 7-Day Healthy Cleanse.

Day Four of The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee

I must be getting used to this change to my diet because today I didn’t feel like I was going to starve! Breakfast included a big bowl of oatmeal with Blueberries and Strawberries and two slices of whole wheat toast – plain! I did have a small cup of coffee while making breakfast and drank water with the meal. After breakfast I took the MORNING package of pills for The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee and my regular supplements.

Through the day I drank lots of filtered water and occasionally snacked on slices of a big Fuji apple. Lunch was similar to Monday’s… just MORE! Again, no sodas, no chips (my normal) and no chocolate.

Once home I finished the second Fuji apple and a few pieces of carrots and cauliflower that were left in my lunch box. Again, followed by LOTS of filtered water. Yes… all that drinking does make you go real often but then… if you read the article I gave you the link to on Monday (Day Two) you know why drinking lots of cold water is really good for you. Weight loss and loss of hunger.

This evening I will have the ‘other half’ of the salad package I opened last evening. To spice up the salad I shaved in Sweet Onion and ran a couple of cloves of Garlic through my garlic press and tonight I will add some sliced cherry tomatoes. Seasoning is Balcamic Vinegar and Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

All this is followed by the NIGHT set of pills for The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee and my regular supplements.

So, what am I noticing as I progress through this Cleanse? First, I slept the night through last night. That’s NOT a normal occurrence for me so I am hoping for a repeat performance tonight. I’ll let you know. Second, I do believe I had more energy today than normal. During this holiday season work is hectic, the pace is non-stop and I was able to perform at a peak level all day and not feel tired at all. Aside of getting rid of all the water I am drinking, trips to the bathroom let me know that I am doing the right thing by participating in The 7-Day Healthy Cleanse by Shaklee because… I can tell that there MUST have been “old stuff” that needed to be cleaned out and this Cleanse is doing that for me.
