Can I Eat That? And Other Things (A Healthy Lifestyle Post)

One of the most important things I thought about before deciding to do Isagenix was: Will I be able to eat regular food still??

The answer?

YES!

Even though I’m doing a “strict” diet, I’m still eating real food.

I’ve been sticking to having at least one meal a day under 600 calories that is good for me. At first, I thought 600 calories wasn’t enough. Then I did some research…

A lot of salads, sandwiches, soups, and meals with protein and veggies are well under 600 calories!

I also love doing rice or green bowls with avocado and making your own is easy. And guess what??? Most of them are under 600 calories! 😍 When I’m out, I like to go to Freshii. Most of their bowls and salads are under 600 calories and are a WAY better option than other fast food places.

Today I got the Oaxaca Bowl from Freshii for lunch and I was literally dancing in my seat while I was eating it. (My coworker can attest to this, she was giving me a WTF face the whole time I stuffing my face).

I also really love to go to BGood. My favourite thing is the Southwestern Chicken Salad:

LOOK AT THAT.

SO FREAKING GOOD.

And it’s under 600 calories!!

Just goes to show, if you do just a little bit of research and thought into what you’re eating, you can make 600 calories go a long way. (And taste delicious!)

 

Now for the first week I was doing this, it was a little hard. I’m not going to lie.

I wanted cake.

I wanted pizza.

I wanted a Richmond Station burger (Heaven).

But by the 2nd week, my body started craving other things.

I couldn’t WAIT to eat my veggies and hummus.

I was SO EXCITED to eat my cherries.

I appreciated the taste of healthy food so much more.

My whole body had changed.

I had a lot more energy than before and I felt stronger after my workouts.

And I wasn’t bloated!

I honestly had no idea that you could go through the whole day without feeling bloated. I thought it was normal.

BUT NO!

So life is pretty good.

Some things I got in my first Isagenix order! :

With the kit I got from Isagenix, I got a lot of great things to help me through cleanse days, I got snacks to have between shakes or meals and supplements to help boost metabolism and digestion. I also got a blender and of course, the shakes!

This is just a few things that I got in the kit.

I love everything that I got in this kit but I especially love the Cleanse for Life. If you’re like me and your body LOVES vitamin B6 and B12, it’s going to love this. It’s full of it, amount other great ingredients and every time I have it, my body feels SO good. (I used to get shots of vitamin B12 so it’s nice not having to anymore!)

I also got a great schedule for regular days and cleanse days that my friend gave me, so it’s easy to follow along and know when to have all of these products.

If you want to know what else was in the kit, shoot me a message! I’d be glad to tell you about it 😄

 

OH! And guess what flavour came out today??? Peach Mango! I already ordered one and I won’t be surprised if it sells out. It looks delicious. I’ll let you know how it tastes when I get it!
