Thanks Hope! That was very helpful. And yes, it’s actually Meredith too.
I skipped the cleanse as well, as I already have a fast metabolism and ate every few hours to begin with. I didn’t think I could push myself that hard and still work full time on my feet!
Now, I felt a little confused on what was ok in the stage 1. Are the buckwheat and quinua ok in stage 1? I think I’ve seen it listed different ways on different sites.
I also quickly discovered that I must have a tree nut allergy, at least when having more than a few, but I’ll try the sunflower seeds as well. Thanks for the tip for the quick-make cereal too, I’ll check it out!
Congratulations on the baby! Good luck to you as well. Things are going much smoother now that I’m easing into it. Hopefully I can be strictly on the diet within the week!
