Spicy Tuna Taco Cucumber Bites
TO MAKE: Peel 1 cucumber. Slice width-wise into about 1 1/2 inch slices. Carve out some of the center to create a bowl. Using a teaspoon helps with carving. Set aside. In a bowl stir together 1/2 cup tuna, 3 -4 Tablespoons cashew dip, 1 teaspoon chili powder, generous pinch of cayenne, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder. Add sea salt and black pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. Spoon filling into cucumber cups.
Repeating Or Extending The Cleanse
JJ doesnt recommend the full cleanse be longer than two weeks straight she says that you dont want to run the risk of slowing your metabolism so its important to take a break from the full cleanse and re-introduce whole foods into your diet. A break would be several weeks . However, two green smoothies plus a high-protein meal per day is very healthy and can be done for life.
If youve been off the 10-day cleanse for a few weeks and now want to redo the full cleanse or do it for longer than 2 weeks, you have to deliberately add more protein into your diet and be sure to rotate or use different greens each week.
Also, once you get rid of toxins and waste during your first 10-day cleanse, you will most likely lose less the next time you do the full cleanse. Normal weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week after the cleanse. By doing the full cleanse longer than 14 days, you run the risk of slowing your metabolism which will just make it harder to lose weight in the long run. If you need to learn how to lose weight after the cleanse, see below. Just trying to do the full cleanse over and over back to back is not the answer Its a jumpstart to weight loss After the 10-day cleanse, 1-2 pounds per week is normal and healthy. Detoxing should not be used as an extreme diet that is not the answer to long-term permanent weight loss.

Days Of Torture For The Promise Of A 10
Get more Spoon in your feed.
In the pursuit of that ever-so desirable summer beach bod, I found myself committed to trying the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse by JJ Smith. The cleanse is a 10-day detox of processed foods, dairy, meat, and caffeine to give your body a much needed break and allow it to work on others things AKA burn fat.
More substantial than a juice cleanse, the green smoothies are based with kale, spinach and other leafy greens and are then mixed with various fruit combinations, which make the smoothies quite yummy unlike their bright green appearance. The best part of the cleanse is that is not a starvation diet. In fact, it is encouraged that you snack between the smoothies when you are hungry. Some allowed snacks include crunchy vegetables like carrots, celery, cucumbers, apples, raw unsalted nuts, peanut butter, hard boiled eggs, and plain greek yogurt.
This 10-day adventure was said to be a challenge and one of the hardest things you can do. The benefits are not even going to show up until after the first three days on the cleanse. However after that hump, youre promised to feel more energized, sleep better, have less cravings and bloating, and of course, shed some pounds. JJ clearly states that this is not an end all solution. The cleanse is meant to reset your body and encourages you to continue eating healthy by incorporating smoothies into your daily routine. Read on to hear about my experience.

If you dont like ranch then just add your favorite seasonings. Its that creamy base youre going for!

A Delicious And Filling Low
J.J. Smiths Fat Flush Soup is designed to assist with weaning off of the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. This vegetable soup not only contains a few of my favorites things to eat , it restores the bodys acid alkaline and sodium potassium balance. Its packed with nutritious superfoods enriched with antioxidants and fiber that aid with flushing out toxins and fat from the body.
It does all of this plus its very delicious and keeps you nice and full.
The Reasoning Behind 10
The book says that the first step in losing weight is detoxification, to remove toxic overload from the body. Toxins stored in fat cells are difficult to get rid of through dieting alone. You must first detoxify the body. Thus, the most effective weight-loss programs should focus on both fat loss and detoxification, which lead to overall improved health and wellness. Raw greens can heal the body. You will detoxify your body through elimination of certain foods for ten days and reprogram your taste buds to desire healthy, nutrient-rich foods. The author states that after you complete the cleanse, you will never have to count calories or follow complicated or expensive meal plans or measure food again, as your body will naturally crave and desire healthy, natural foods.
