This one was a complete 180. Everyday and every meal/snack was basically a treat.
To prepare for this I did a cleanse day (see video below)Â followed by a day of fasting, so just water and salt (good salts, no table salts). Then to recover from my treat day I will do the same. Although sometime I flip the orderâ still attempting to figure out which one works best.
For the recovery for this one, I think Iâm going to need a little extra. Iâm going to be doing 3 superfood shakesÂ (recipe below), followed by a cleanse day, followed by at least 4 day water and salt fast. The longest Iâve fasted was just over 67 hours, so we will see. I actually fasted for 84.5 hours.
I gained 13.5 pounds while on the cruise ship (177 to 190.5), and actually 15.5 pounds total for the vacation from Saturday to Friday.
Cruise Breakfast Food
I hadnât seen this weight in almost 5 yearsÂ since before I first started nutritional cleansing. Look a little better now then when I didâ just a little bitâ¦â¦..
After my fast I dropped back down to 181.8.
I posted a few of the pics of the food I ate. First time eating a hash brown, bagel, englishÂ muffinÂ in over a decade 🙂
Every day I always started off with a workout. From Friday to Friday I worked out, so 8 days in a row. I never recommend that, especially when weight training. But I basically went back to a bodybuilding split routine so I didnât really feel worn out. Plus with all the surplus in calories I neededÂ it. I always attempt to workout even more when traveling as well, because itÂ 1. Gives me a good start to the day 2. Makes me more mentally sharp 3. On this trip helped me clear all those excess carbs* 4. Keeps my discipline of waking up early and not falling too far into âvacation modeâ. The gym on the ship opened at 6 am, so I actually did get to sleep in a little.
*Â Working out helps big time with making you more insulin sensitive. So when you do eat carbs you are able to process them and bring the blood sugar and insulin levels down quicker. I always so if you donât workout, the only carbs you should be eating are fibrous vegetables. You got to earn your carbs with a workout (if you are going to eat them at allâ¦..which is the best option 🙂 because eventually (for the majority of people) if you continue to eat a high carb nutrition plan then your bodyâs ability to process will diminish which will lead to health issues down the road. I always say we are not supposed to grow older and die from some chronic disease. We are simply supposed to die because our cells get too old and we go happy and healthyâ not suffering in our final years.
The other thingÂ I did while on the ship and enjoying all the food was I drank 3 of my superfood shakes aÂ day with Ionix and a serving of greens. Ionix is an adaptogen drink designed to fight stress and inflammation. Even if Iâm doing super low carb, I still usually am drinking this. Greens is a powder that in each serving has about 30 servings of vegetablesÂ in it. This was basically my nutritional insurance, as I did forget to bring my vitamins.
When I'm at home, I will always add extra fat usually either coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil. Usually 2-4 tablespoons worth.
Overall the cruise was a great time. Highly recommend it.
Still working on the experiments and finding what works best for everybody.
