Welcome to Day 8 of the Purification Program.
Congratulations! You are done with the SP Cleanse capsules. Well, technically you should have 3 capsules leftover (go ahead and take those this morning). If you have more than that leftover, you probably just missed taking them at some point. Not to worry. Keep taking the SP Cleanse (7 capsules 3 times per day) until you have finished the bottle. However, you should also introduce the SP Green Food starting today as indicated in the Supplement Regimen section below.
How Should I Feel Today?
After 1 week on the program, you should be feeling good. You should not be hungry or feel like you don't have any energy. If you do, you are most likely not eating enough vegetables during the day. Also remember that you can do up to 5 shakes a day. A key point to remember is that as long as you are eating healthy vegetables, you can eat as much as you want, so you should not feel hungry.
As you progress through this program, you may desire to add additional weight loss support products. You can do this during the purification program or afterwards. These products are available from Dr. Graves. Today we start a series of tips on what products to take for your body shape.
If your weight is generalized and you are heavy all over (typical hypothyroidism), the thyroid is most likely your weak endocrine gland. Discuss the following protocol with Dr. Graves.
1 tablet three times daily
3 tablets per day
1 tablet three times daily
If you have trouble taking all of the capsules each day you can try mixing them in with your shakes. The first 7 days this makes for a bit of an intense shake (mainly due to the cayenne in the SP Cleanse), however now that you have completed those, you might consider this if taking the pills is difficult for you.
Recipe of the Day
This is a perfect pick-me-up beverage if you feel hungry or tired.
2 inches fresh ginger root
2 quarts of water
Stevia to taste
Wash and peel the ginger root.
Grate it finely over a bowl.
Squeeze the grated ginger mash with your fingers to extract the juice. Discard the dry mash.
Bring water to a boil.
Remove from heat and add ginger and juice of 3 lemons.
Add Stevia and stir well.
Drink hot or chill for iced ginger lemonade by adding ice cubes and a fresh slice of lemon.
Don't forget the new protocol today!
