Okay, I recently went through The Sexy Chef Eat Clean Detox Plan which entailed me eating purely vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, and seeds. I gave my body a break from meat, wheat, and processed food. They went on sale and so I was able to avail of the 7-day program for P7,500 instead of the usual P8,400. Now a lot of you have been asking me what the effect was after 7 days — Did I lose weight? Did I feel detoxified? Anyway here’s a refresher on what kind of food I had for an entire week…
Mid-morning Snack: Atomic Carrot from Juju Cleanse
Lunch: Hearty Chickpea Soup (not shown in photo) & Romaine Salad with Pine Nuts and Cranberries with Balsamic Dressing
Mid-afternoon Snack: Pineapple Chips
Dinner: Refreshing Soba Noodles
In general, every meal was a pleasant surprise. I’ve never been vegan, much less vegan for one whole week, and I found myself getting excited over what I was going to eat next because almost everything was delicious. ALMOST.
Day 7’s lunch was THE WORST. Had they not served me this extraordinarily bland Veggie Vermicelli, I would have given The Sexy Chef Eat Clean Detox Plan a perfect score for taste. It was so bland I could not force myself to eat it even if I was practically starving. Luckily, it came with Rainbow Salad and Creamy Sesame Dressing which I wolfed down like there was no tomorrow. I knew I was going to regret not finishing it because wow, I would get really hungry in between meals when I was doing this diet plan. Still, I could not bring myself to finish it because it was so tasteless, kinda like a bunch of leaves and noodles boiled in plain water (which is probably what it was).
Day 5’s breakfast was strange. Wasn’t I supposed to be taking a break from processed food? Why was I getting soya milk in a tetra pack? I even read the ingredients. I’m pretty sure there were chemicals.
I lost 3 lbs after 7 days. Given the torture of being hungry all the time, I expected to lose more. It was hard. I would go to sleep hungry. I felt like I was always starving. I’d eat every single leaf, seed, nut, whatever plus I was on the verge of drinking the leftover salad dressing. Looks like I may have gained it all back by now because the very next morning after detox I had Spam Tocino for breakfast. I ate red velvet cupcakes and steak too. I was just so hungry for everything. It did not reset my taste buds, it magnified my desire for FOOD. I was always thinking of food probably because I would get so hungry.
When I did Juju Cleanse, I lost my appetite for the unhealthy afterwards and so I kept off the 3 lbs I lost in 3 days. I also went to the bathroom a lot more. I had better skin and I just felt lighter and healthier. So detox-wise, I would still recommend Juju Cleanse. The cost is nearly the same.
On a more positive note, The Sexy Chef delivers on time all the time. All the dishes were delicious too, except for Veggie Vermicelli. The portions were small and I wonder if it’s standardized for everybody, because I’m thinking what if I were a 6-foot tall 300-lb dude, would they still give the same serving sizes?
