Alkalising Challenge…Done. The Summary

Well, I had the intention of blogging every day but life got in the way, along with having to get up at 5.30am every morning to prepare juice and breakfast! If you missed the first post, 7 day alkalising challenge and the second alkalising day 1.

How the challenge worked

Basically it was 7 days with no dairy, grain, red meat and that kind of thing. My average day consisted of pretty much salmon, tuna, cod and chicken with some sort of green vegetable, i.e. broccoli, cabbage, kale, spring greens or more cabbage!

I did it the easy way, with a spread sheet I was given by my personal trainers at Easyfit. I just tweaked their food plans for things I don’t eat, and then got down to it.

On the whole the challenge was quite easy, I did feel pretty rough on day two and the lack of variety did get a bit boring, although that is my fault as I probably could have cooked a few different things, but the results were worth it.

For those readers who know about this stuff, really I shouldn’t have eaten any meat, but as I am hammering myself in the gym, and not allowed whey protein shakes, I needed to keep my protein up.

And those results… 2.5kg and 1.1% body fat lost in 7 days. Well worth the pain.

The rest of the story I will tell in photos!
