DAY 1

My first day of ISAmatheGenix. 

I followed day one’s schedule, of the ISAGENIX Shake Day Plan, without deviating. Making a chocolate shake with blueberries for each shake.  I never felt hungry throughout the day.  Not surprising, we all know the first day doesn’t really count.  Your excitement starting a new program to gain control over your health and diet helps fuel the initial fire.  The true test will come after the first few days. That is when you begin to realize how hard it might be to stay the course.

Worry not! My expectation for ISAGENIX is SUCCESS.  I am assuming while using the ISAGENIX products I won’t fall off the wagon, plus lose weight.

At the end of the day… If I can do that crazy cleanse diet for 9 days.  I would imagine that this ISAGENIX program is a breeze, right? FYI (For those who don’t know) “The Cleanse diet is where you drink cayenne pepper, lemon and maple syrup all day… AND NOTHING ELSE!

Tip: Oh, a piece of advice, I’d give to those who are trying to lose weight and stay focused.  Don’t watch too much television! Every other commercial today had something to do with food.  Everything looks great!!!!! Even the stuff I never thought looked good before. Now all of a sudden it does.

The Shakes: In my opinion, the shakes are quite filling and very tasty. Here’s the recipe I used: ¼ cup of frozen blue berries, ½ cup of crushed ice to 8 oz of water and 2 scoops of powder pureed in the blender.

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water with dinner.  Especially, with this salad dressing – you’ll need it!

Not sure if it’s the program or all the ginger, garlic and water I consumed yesterday.  I was up every hour, needing to relieve myself.

*If you walk for 40 minutes at a brisk pace of 3 mph, you can lose approximately 300 calories.  (Depending on your weight) Don’t forget the Calorie Burned Calculator for determining the calories you have burned today.  Then subtract those calories from the total calories you consumed.

Making Dinner: First season the Chuck Roast with Lawry’s and browning. Transfer and cover with foil in an oven proof baking dish. Braise the pot roast in beef broth with some onion, a carrot, celery and 3 garlic cloves at 325 degrees for 2 ½ hours. Slower if you have time (300 degrees for 3 hrs). Either way you want an internal temperature of about 160 degrees.

While resting the meat, take the braising liquid and reduce by half. Smash the roasted garlic and stir into the au jus to thicken slightly. Drizzle over the beef if you want…

For the veggie portion I steamed the cauliflower and served with a drizzle of olive oil (1 tsp).

Finally, I made a dressing by grating garlic & ginger, mixing in olive oil (2 tsp) and vinegar (1 tsp), plus wasabi and ketchup.  Spooned over the salad of iceberg lettuce.
