Congratulations! We are approaching the end of the Elimination Phase (week 1) and the beginning of the Clean Phase (week 2). That means we are at the halfway point of the 14-Day Healthy You Challenge! As we enter the next 7 days, please do not hesitate to post questions or comments on the event page or main Facebook page. Your questions and comments will continue to help everyone along the way.
The Clean Phase is a seven-day continuation of the final day of the Elimination Phase. During the Clean Phase, you will continue to eat a diet free of sugar, wheat, dairy, process foods, diet soda and artificial sweeteners, red meat and alcohol. That means that we are eating 100% clean this week.
During the week 1, you may have experienced symptoms of withdrawal. But don’t fret! The Clean Phase focuses on nourishing your body; during this phase, your body should start to feel lighter as excess weight comes off. You should begin to feel more balanced and alive. Your thoughts may become more clear and focused. You will likely feel more vibrant and energetic as you reach the end of the clean week. Although this week will likely prove the most challenging week, it will also be the most rewarding.
As we prepare for the Clean Phase, please find the meal plan and all accompanying recipes for this week below. Click here for a shopping list of all the items you’ll find in the Clean Phase meal plan. I hope this allows you to shop and plan for next week’s meals (days 8-14).
