Crazy Sexy Diet Adventure Cleanse of Kris Carr, Day 16. Chubby Cargill Chic and Oprah's "Stedman" is now "Studman".


                                                 Healing Cancer from the Inside Out  

Is Stedman going to "flip"??  While I am not going to go on and on and on about the Oprah show yesterday, that discussed veganism while also giving Michael Pollan a chance to justify his unsexy ways, I was uber excited that Stedman seemed to have an interest in the whole Vegan thing.  I guess Oprah had mentioned in passing that she had been at her "Vegan" meeting, about herself and her staff going Vegan for one week, and Stedman wanted to jump right on board.  Apparently he has some interest in continuing with it after the "trial week".  Kathy Freston, "The Veganist", was the Vegan Voice for this show and she had a smokin' hot Vegan Body to accompany it.  Which isn't a point at all really, because it's what's on the inside that counts, but good advertising never hurts.  Even though Kathy advocates a Whole Food (not necessarily Whole Foods) diet, she did accompany one staffer to Whole Foods and they stocked up on "transition" foods, like Tofurkey, Daiya Cheese, Earth Balance, and Almond Milks.  These are all great foods, and even with their packaging carry far less environmental harm than killing cows and chickens, never mind the Karma Points.  But ultimately it's cheaper and healthier to eat foods as close to their natural sources as possible.  That said,  Daiya cheese tastes great and none of these foods have cholesterol.  It seemed that this "Vegan Experiment" made a lot of staffers at least think about how animal products have penetrated every food they buy, and apparently "poop" was a pretty big topic.  I found it hard to believe that a young staffer once only pooped once a week but was pooping every day on the Vegan diet.  Once a week?  Ouch.  I guess I am pretty naive that pooping is such a major difficulty in our country.  It does blow me away that people buy fiber supplements, as if fiber is such a rare entity in food.  There was a meat processing scene, of one of the Cargill's slaughterhouses and a whole bunch of BS by a Chubby Chic who represented "Cargill".  If you want to look like the "Chubby Cargill Chic" eat slaughtered cow.  If you want to look like Kathy Freston, well, eat Vegan.  Look, nothing against "Chub", but "Chub" is always cuter if it comes from Uncle Eddie's Vegan cookies or Fish Gut Free Frey.  Chub is no longer cute when you are being a spokesperson for how ethical and moral you are while blacking out the stun scene.  Let the kids see the friggin' stun scene.  They wouldn't even show it to the adults.

Ah, back to cleansing.  Snow, ice, Kale.  Have been totally owning bragging rights to eating up to 2 heads of Kale a day.  I have been using bananas the last few days which is so not in the Cleanse as low glycemic fruits are preferred.  However,  I have been using and entire bunch of Kale in each smoothie and adding green powder as well.  The whole glycemic thing is pretty confusing at this point.  On one hand you have Hippocrates and Gabriel Cousens dissing carrots and potatoes and on the other hand the Gerson Therapy has you drink 13 glasses of juice, mostly carrot, a day and stewing white!! potatoes. One thing I do know, is that if you are not the most disciplined eater, then you need to have "healthy contraband" in your kitchen.
Kale Salad with Sunflower Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Red Cabbage, Lemon Juice, Coconut Aminos, Olive Oil.

An example is a gal I know who basically eats pork chops and brownies, throw a little pad thai in here and there.  Now she is getting healthier, and truly wants to shed some weight, so she adds green smoothies in her diet, which is awesome.  However, she doesn't eat enough healthy food or have "healthy binge" food around, so she still binges on boxes of brownies.  If you "binge", then you better have some healthy stuff like apples, bananas, or even vegan cookies with fruit sugars.  Being an ethical vegan makes it pretty damn easy to avoid a lot of c**p, because in Middle America, people aren't baking mountains of Vegan Brownies and bringing them to work to share. It's not like there is a Babycakes around the corner.  Sometimes it's good that you can just automatically discount 95% of the food in the room, because you shouldn't be eating it anyway.  Throw stuff you shouldn't eat in the trash.  Yes, the trash.  Then take the trash out, we all remember the episode of Sex in the City where Miranda dug her brownies out of the trash.

So story with the "Brownie Babe".  The green smoothie with a box of brownies wasn't really working so she went on a diet touted by Kevin Trudeau diet of eating meat and dairy and a severely restricted vegetable allowance.  And 500 calories total intake a day.  For 3 weeks or something to "reset" your body.  Of course if you eat 500 calories a day you will lose a pound every 2 days!  My point, get healthy binge food so you aren't pumping poison into your body to lose weight.  Buy your Karma Kookies or get your nuts and dates out.  You just have to redefine what "junk" food is.  To me it's bananas.  My butt likes it that way.

Hubby's Quote of the day on topic of my breath: "You smell like you've been lickin' a lawnmower.  Like freshly cut grass."

Now that's what I consider a successful Cleanse Day.
Maybe if I make a Vision Board today, that has a picture on a Vision Board on it, one will come to fruition over the weekend.........And thank you Kris Carr for getting the Green Machine and I back together.  Loving the Kale,  and Kris was the one who helped us reunite.

Crazy Sexy Diet: Eat Your Veggies, Ignite Your Spark, and Live Like You Mean It!
This book is great for anyone.
Super fun and inspirational.  


  1. My "healthy binge food" is dates stuffed with pecans... not exactly low-glycemic and healthy, but way better than my old binge food: Oreos!
    Glad the cleanse is going nicely for you :)

  2. It is difficult to decided what you should and shouldn't eat when nutritionists and health guru's don't agree. It leaves us totally in the middle and confused. I finished my adventure cleanse a little while ago, and I realized that I don't have to cut down on fruit, or never eat a white potato again. I listened to my body. It told me what to do and what to eat. If you feel good when you eat fruit, eat it! I think people with cancer have to be more concerned with the GI of their foods. Don't get me wrong, it's important for everyone, but I don't think we should get bogged down by it. Don't feel guilty about eating banana's and dates. I don't! You're high green intake should balance everything out. And as long as you are eating alkalizing foods, you're good! and as far as I know, most fruits are alkalizing.
    good luck with the rest of your cleanse!

  3. @Radish. Dates and Pecans are awesome!!
    @Deni. Yeah, I'm not too worried about the fruits. It just bothers me that I actually can't stay away from it. I totally crave apples!! Maybe I am so used to eating so much food with water, that when I don't I feel too "empty". But crave the sugar in the fruits too.
