Day Two

So day two is just about over for me here. The hunger pains were there, but very, very light today. This morning I had some cramping that was not too bad, but it was evident and irritating. I had a fear that I was coming upon that time of the month and wouldn't be able to do this during that. As far as I can tell, that is currently not the case. It was probably just my bowels trying to move.

Speaking of which, they haven't moved much today. I've had a few "rabbit turds" if you will, but no big movements. Kind of frustrating, I want it out!

The big thing today though is my mouth. It was feeling kind of mucusy and sticky earlier today. Then at one point I stuck out my tongue to look at it and noticed it was white. Now, from time to time tongues get white, but my whole tongue was a very bright white. I even just scrubbed my tongue (which I have never gotten in the habit of doing before bed, sadly) and it is still gross looking white. And even still, a white tongue is not healthy. They should be a pinkish color. It is like a residue on my tongue or something, really gross feeling. Then when I was driving back to school tonight, I noticed my teeth felt weird. The best way I can find to describe it is my mouth feels how it does after I eat a banana. I don't know if any of you experience this, but eating a banana makes my teeth feel kind of gritty and just gross. Guess my body is using any avenue to get rid of toxins. That is very true though, because my armpits smell funny at the end of this night. And my occasional farts have just been putrid and rotten-esque. Which normally they aren't THAT bad. Too much information? I hope not.

Then at youth group tonight I had a kid waving a pizza in my face. AND - we took the kids to Baskin Robbins for 31 cent scoop night. Honestly though, it didn't bother me to have about 20 people standing around me eating ice cream. And I really like ice cream!

One last thing, my sense of smell is very acute now. I was walking into the Target on Schoenherr and Hall Road and could smell food from Outback Steakhouse at least a football field away (and across the road). That was weird. But I find it nice smelling the foods. And it isn't hunger that makes me want foods, it's that I want to taste them!!

But, it's all in the name of cleaning out my body, and hopefully wiping away some fat reserves :]

CLASS/New Adventure

First of all, new class details:
Saturday, May 10th from 2pm-4pm
Same as before with the food thing, so I am copying and pasting those details....
Since this will be a long class during dinner time [kinda], how about we do a potluck? Everyone please bring something to eat to share with everyone. [I can't guarantee I will be making any food, and you will see why in a few paragraphs.] Cost is still $2/person.

We will be talking about Herbs and Muscle Response Testing. Please bring along with you any vitamins or supplements that you are taking or would like to start taking.

I look forward to this and hope you can make it out. Let me know. Thanks!

So for my "new adventure" - today my father and I embarked on the Master Cleanse. 21 days of drinking our special concoction [fresh squeezed lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper in water]. This is the first time i have ever done it and my dad has made it 14 days when he did it before. Needless to say, this shall be interesting. I will definitely keep you guys posted on it. I will be posting more in general anyways because school is over on Friday. =] As for now though, I am really hoping the hunger pains will go away. And I can't stop thinking about food. One day down.....20 to go

Next Class

Hello everyone. It is getting down to the wire here with my other school, thus my complete lack of anything on here! I'm really sorry! Just wait until May and I'll be all over it =]

As for my next class, I am planning on Saturday, May 3rd. This class will be at my house and will cost $2 per person. The plan is for it to last two hours because I have to discuss two different topics. The time is currently to be determined because I do not know when I work that day yet. I should be finding out soon though and can let you know. Hope you plan on attending. Any questions let me know! =]

Sunday, April 6, 2008


First of all, let me begin by apologizing for my lack of entries. I am trying to finish up things here at my other school, so I haven't really had the time or effort to invest in it. But that will come back once I graduate (May 3rd - day of celebration indeed).

Next, remember how I said I would test the Vitamin C theory out for the next "aunt flow" visitation? Well, I am walking proof that it is effective. I usually want to tear open my abdomen with an old, rusty knife in order to take out my uterus on the first day. That is the pain I experience. I am happy to report it has been two days and I have not ingested even one pain killer (by now it would be at least 12 that I have taken! I know, excessive). I have taken approximately 4,000mg of Vitamin C each day and some extra Calcium and Magnesium. Don't get me wrong, I can still feel what is going on in my body, but it is not a debilitating pain. Thank God.

Moving on, protein. Protein is essential to your body - for rebuilding tissues, making enzymes and hormones and many other things. The thing is, some people think eating a lot of protein is beneficial. Unfortunately that is an incorrect assumption. The excess protein gets in the way of ones health. Protein naturally leaves an acidic ash when broken down, so too much of it will cause the acid in your body to build up and become toxic. The best way to keep your body on the alkaline end of things is to eat 80% alkaline foods - so plants/fruits/veggies/grains - and 20% acid foods - any animal products and a very FEW fruits. That would go on to show that those high protein diets do not much more then make you acidic inside and much more susceptible to disease.

Excess protein also disrupts the osmotic balance of the cells. Osmotic balance is essentially the equality of pressure between the fluids on either side of the cell membrane - inside and outside of the cell. When it is out of balance - because of an excess of protein inside the cell - the cell brings in more fluids. This is done in order to re-balance, but also to dilute the intracellular ("inside the cell") protein. This process of dilution is a "standard procedure" the body has for dealing with abnormally high amounts of any substance inside the cells. When a cell brings more water into it (and it is not usually just one cell doing this, several cells in an area will all have an excess of protein so will all bring in extra fluid), it results is something far too familiar for some of us - fluid retention (or edema). That would explain why someone I knew went on a cruise and ate a lot of different meats and proteins that his body wasn't used to and his legs swelled up. Makes sense now, doesn't it?

Next time, we will talk about how protein makes you feel like you have more energy. But is it really giving you energy? We will also discuss how excess protein is potentially hazardous paired with exercise.

School next weekend, that means another class to come soon! =]
