The whole Animal situation distracted me, and I never really talked about how I felt after the potato cleanse, and if I noticed any results. I didn't weigh myself, and although I did take my measurements at some point, I never took them again. I do know that some weight was dropped because I had to go in another notch on my belt, and I can see a difference, especially in my problem area, the abdomen.
I noticed when I was eating only potatoes that my digestion felt ON POINT! I don't normally have digestion issues, and I take probiotics and drink kombucha, but man I learned there is something to eating mono meals. I noticed it very quickly both times that I did this cleanse.
Another benefit I noticed was increased energy from all those carbs. I could feel my muscles humming and working. It felt like I was giving my body what it needed, so it was going to do right by me.
I also felt like my skin looked a million times healthier. I had a vitamin c glow for sure!
I also really appreciated each meal. Especially if I would have a big green salad for lunch. Man, that crunch was everything!
All in all, it was a great experience, and I will do it again. I liked how I felt so much that I have made several trips to the store for more potatoes. I have oven fries cooking right now for breakfast! I feel satisfied and super healthy when I eat potatoes, and I wouldn't have known it if it weren't for this cleanse!
I've also learned to appreciate simpler foods. I have some gardein treats in the freezer, and I thought I would bust into those after the cleanse, but I don't crave them. I went for tofu! So, I think if anyone struggles with junk food addiction, this would be a great way to retrain your taste buds.
And, for anyone who like me cannot find the new vegan Ben&Jerry's, I called the Ben&Jerry's shop yesterday, and was told that anytime between March tenth and the seventeenth the stores here in Seattle will have the pints for sale!! And she said it would be some time after that that it should roll into grocery stores. I guess it's making it's East Coast debut first. It's made in Vermont, so I guess that makes sense. Anyway, if anyone reads this on the West Coast, just know that we will have our day in the sun too!
