Anyway, I'm doing a 30-day vegan cleanse. The premise is to flush your body of toxins. I'm to stay away from 5 things: animal products (meat/dairy/eggs/fish/etc.), alcohol, caffeine, sugar (including tropical/citrus fruits), and gluten. I have found that I must have had an intolerance to gluten because all the stomach issues that plagued me before have since went away. I'll probably continue to stick to this plan to some extent afterward, with the very occasional slab of meat. :)

that sounds like a great (but difficult) plan! i have about 12 vegan cookbooks at home that aren't being put to good use because most of the recipes incorporate soy which my FI can't tolerate but maybe i could do vegan lunches at work and cut out the rest of the junk. except caffeine, i would cry :)

Thats where the real results are!!! I have a muscular body so I weigh more than I look. I concentrate on my measurements and body fat percentage. The scale definately can fluctuate...I lost 6 pounds over night one time... I weighed myself one night before working out and i burned about 600 calories during my workout-i went home to bed-didn't eat anything- then i woke up in the morning-didn't eat anything again, worked out again-burned another 600- and then weighed myself...6 lbs lost.... all water weight lol
Well yes of course, muscle is far more dense than fat but it's funny because I used that excuse for a long time to justify weight gain (when I'm sure it was some muscle) just found it easier to measure like you mentioned.

Wow! 6lbs overnight?! How did you workout, no eat, sleep then workout again? I would have died of starvation!

That's interesting about the soy. I've learned on the cleanse that soy is much harder to digest and it is recommended not to have it, unless it's tempeh (a fermented soy cake). I have a lot of issues when it comes to digesting things correctly. I've been eating nuts as snacks and raw is better than roasted, but it seems neither really agree well with me. It's a learning experience!

Sure, here's an example of what I might have in a day:

Breakfast - granny smith apple and cashews or leftovers
Snacks - raw cashews, hummus & veggies
Lunch - cauliflower-carrot soup, kale salad
Dinner - stir fry, quinoa tabbouleh

I've been cooking a lot. I think that's the biggest improvement of all!
