ProLon: Day 1

Tomato Soup

Tomato Soup

I got started bright and early this morning with my ProLon kit.  I had to switch and have the soup for breakfast and the L-bar for lunch, because the soups cannot be microwaved.  The Minestrone soup was surprisingly tasty and somewhat thick, so I felt full afterward.  I also took the two omega-3 supplements, made the spearmint lemon tea, and grabbed one of the liter-sized bottles of water that I vowed to drink everyday this week.  I then headed to work for my ER shift.  I was fine all day until about 12:30, when I started to get a little hungry.  I had the L-bar and the kale crackers and I was fine again.  Both of these things tasted so healthy, it felt good to know I was putting that kind of fuel into my body.  I also took the two NR-1 nutrient supplements.  Around 5pm, I remembered I had the olive packet and the second L-bar as an afternoon snack, and had those.  This snack made it seem like I was getting quite a bit of food, for a fast.  At 7pm, I started getting hungry again and even became a little bit anxious about the whole thing.  I ate the choco-crisp bar on my way out of the hospital.  I also developed a headache at some point around then.  Dr. Kahn told me it was acceptable to eat a few cucumbers and celery if you get hungry on the first day.  So when I got home I made the Tomato soup mix, and I also ate 1/3 of an English cucumber and 4-5 stalks of celery.  The soup was great and adding the raw vegetables helped a lot.  I took some Advil and I’m going to bed feeling pretty good about my first day.  I feel lighter already.
