Oops – I Went Off Plan

Oops – I Went Off Plan

Perhaps the biggest question we get from the Contact Us form has to do with making a mistake or making a poor food choice.  Here are the 2 most common:

1) I ate “bad stuff” or “the wrong things”

2) I went out drinking with friends. What can I do?

The answer is the same for both.  Get back on plan immediately, and don't look back.  Go forward “on plan” and eat correctly.

As long as you are “on plan” 90% of the time, you should do fine.

Thought I would share a little “secret recipe” that has really worked for me.

If I need to jump start myself back in gear after a “hiccup”, here is what I do.  This is just my personal method, but it has had great results.  I have a meal that is very high in fiber and nutrients.  I try to have something very colorful that has the freshest and best looking veggies and fruit.  Here is a meal I had a few days ago that follows this pattern.  Two fresh hard boiled jumbo eggs (still warm with fresh cracked pepper), steamed asparagus (natural diuretic), small amount of steamed broccoli, baby cukes, yellow pepper, orange cherry tomatoes.  Bowl of beautiful raspberries and blackberries (most fibrous fruit).  You can vary the fruits and veggies, and you can substitute with PLAIN grilled chicken or turkey.  I think you can see the pattern here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let us know if you try this and if it works for you.  Take a photo or describe what you had.

      @ Santana,
      You can do that, and you can also remove the BioTherm capsules and just take the calcium.

    I took mns packs on the first three days of the herbal cleanse and then found out that I wasn’t suppose to take the mns packs until after the 10th day…did this mess up my cleansing process?

    Quick question – Im on Day 8 and I forgot to take my Catalyst 30 minutes before lunch. I also forgot to bring my carb for lunch – SO should I take the three Catlyst 30 minutes before dinner and have my carb with dinner? Or should I just skip both?

      @ Amanda,
      You can take Catalyst on empty stomach before any meal.
      Many people do the Challenge with only 1 added carb per day.

    Another question of falling off the wagon. I had a pretty hard time with the cleanse – its not the program (emotional stress tossed me off). I did not adhere to it 90%. Im starting day 11 tomorrow (stress gone ready to hit it hard) Because of my screw up on the 10 day, will it have a significant effect on the amount of weight/inches I will lose (following the next phase to a) from day 11-24?

    How important is it to have the fiber? I can’t stomach the stuff even mixing it with juice. Can i just get a fiber pill over the counter and take that in replace of the fiber drink?

      The fiber drink is important. No juice on this plan. Read this.

    I am having a really difficult time swallowing the herbal pills. I have been crushing them up, and then mixing them with water and then drinking them. Is that still effective, will I get the same results? What do you recommend when someone can’t swallow the pills? I am fine with the other ones because they are smaller and/or coated.

    My friend made breaded baked chicken for dinner, but I scraped most of it off. Do you think it will affect my cleanse results?

    Hi, I’m on day three of the 10day cleanse and only doing that not the 24day challenge. How bad is it if i ate lightly breaded fish or foods with butter/oil. I know it says to completely avoid those. Would it ruin the process and not work? Or what happens? Thank you.

      For best results, follow the plan. If you are 90% on plan, you should be okay.

    My suggestion is for anyone doing the 24day challenge is to get snack size baggies and portion out your pills for each of the first 10days(Cleanse Phase) label each pack of vitamins am or pm and what day, and this will help you know which ones to take when! I did this and just grabbed a bag for whatever day I was on and I was out the door! I even labeled my fiber drinks that way I knew what day I was on and also I knew if I forgot anything! I hope this helps out.

    Now on the Max phase I grab a strip of MNS and divide up my catalyst and omegaplex and place these in my snack size baggies and staple it to a meal replacement shake pack. Right before bed after I take my last catalyst I set out my new back for the next day so I don’t forget! Because when you have to be out the door before 6am and your still half tired it can be hard to remember and focus to get your daily vitamins.

      @ Samantha,
      There is not a set amount, just try to avoid foods with excess sodium, or using too much salt.

      Fruits and veggies have carbs. You can add 1 carb a day for best results during the cleanse. That would include half a sweet potato, 1/2 cup of plain brown rice or quinoa, small serving of hummus for example. Nothing with wheat.

    I did the cleanse for the first three days and fell off completely throughout the weekend. I’m dedicated to do this now. Should I buy the products all over again and start from Day 1? Or should I continue from where I left off at Day 4? Any advice on this would help!!! Thanks!

    The gal who sold me Advocare said that I can eat anything I want and drink after the 10 day cleanse! Is this true? We were getting excited about being done but do we need to continue eating super healthy for 24 days? When do we go back to normal eating habits and not gain it all back in two days?

    Please explain to me why I can have a half a cup of brown rice…but not have a half of cup of calrose rice. When the nutritional facts are the same on each packet. The brown rice just has one more vitamin then the calrose. Please explain.

      @ Zach,

      Brown rice or quinoa (1/2 cooked) has more protein, fiber and less carbs than calrose or white rice.

    seems like you have a lot of good advice… wanted to say this though..Ive had to search for two hours to get the advice I needed… Sure the info is on the website , but wow it is sooo hard to find… I recommend they redo their website completely.. and more info should come with the 24 day challenge..

      I feel exactly the same! I’m frankly a little upset that the website the distributors and the guide book all have different plans to follow. I’m ending day 4 without an inch or ounce to show for it and now I’m not surprised why! So disappointed.

        I completely agree! The booklet says have a carb with each meal then I research and now saying no bread when bread is on the approved list on the booklet that comes with the challenge? So frustrating. I went almost the whole cleanse while having bread and feel like my results would have been better had I not had it.

    Hello I just started the cleanse and am on day 2. My question is I read the recipes on the site and it had squash listed. But under the recommended foods it says its a starch and shouldnt be eaten during phase 1. Also oatmeal is listed as a complex carb but again says not for phase 1. I’m confused on what complex carbs I can eat.

      @ Michelle and Jodie,
      1 complex carb a day will yield best results at this phase. Choose from oatmeal, half a sweet potato, hummus, 1/2 cup brown rice. Limited portions of squash like delicata, acorn or butternut are fine as complex carb. Zucchini and summer squash can be a larger portion.

      @ Christina,
      Take the Before Breakfast pack 30 minutes before breakfast.
      Take the Before lunch pack 30 minutes before lunch.
      Take the 2 white packets with Breakfast OR with lunch.

      Plain turkey burgers – just get the ground turkey to make them. Hummus can be used as your complex carb.

      @Ashley,
      For best results, wait until after the cleanse, and limit the sushi. 1/2 cup brown rice total, so be careful, and leave out soy sauce. Could cause you to stall, so be careful.

      @ Brenda,
      On Phase 2,
      Take the first color packet that says BEFORE BREAKFAST half hour before breakfast with Spark(If you are taking Catalyst(3) and ThermoPlus(1), add those in here). Half hour later is the meal replacement shake(BREAKFAST) with the two white packets that say take WITH BREAKFAST. Then, half hour before lunch take the one that says BEFORE LUNCH(If you are taking Catalyst(3) and ThermoPlus(1), add those in here).

      Max C is for appetite control. It all depends on the individual, but Max3 is probably a better match for you.
