your kidding right? thats like maybe 600 calories. are you trying to lose weight? whats ur height and current weight? compared to what i eat that is a meal plan i would starve on! dont mean to sound mean but i think you should eat more. :) definately more greens too.

Sorry to say..but u did not eat enough calories..according to fitday u consumed 751.74 cal..assuming the banana, oranges, and grapefruit were med. sized...u can go to fitday.com and get a free account to track your cal...it's pretty neat..u prolly just feel so full cuz u aren't used to eating again yet after fasting...u need to at least consume 1200 cal. a day for good body function..or things might start to shut down eventually..good luck:D

Im slowly re-introducing foods because I was on a 40 day fast, and I also seem to get full quick. I tried to space out my meals..but i guess I didnt cut it.
Maybe ill have another meal before i go to bed.
im eating another 1/2 cup of sesame seeds, and 4 more strawberries

the seeds might have been what has been rough for you. Otherwise, great!

Its really dissappointing to see all my old habits back after a 40 day cleanse. Un able to stop myself from eating. Ive gained weight 2 pounds the past 2 days eating like this. I need to cut it down.

I wouldn't worry, the 2 lbs you gained back is waste in your system. Have you had a BM since coming off your fast? I am 3 days of the master cleanse, have not had a BM in 2 and am up 2 as well. Don't worry about it, give your system a chance to straighten out and EXERCISE!!

Yes, I am having BM's

Are you soaking your sunflower seeds B4 consuming? I know my dh gets really full when he eats seeds and nuts - and sometimes he says he's uncomfortable - like they're swelling in his tummy. Other than that - you don't seem to be eating a whole lot of food! Feel better!! ;)

no, i dont soak them

If it were my body, that's way too many combinations after such an extensive fast. If it were me, I would strictly mono-meal, and not eat anything after 7:30pm. That will slow you down a lot. My body wouldn't be ready for seeds until later. It's harder to tell when you're full if you're combining more than one thing, so perhaps mono? Also doing smoothies is a very gentle way to come off of a fast.
Remember- You should take one day of slowly getting back into solids, for every one day of fasting. Take it slow girl :)
congratulations on completing such a cleanse by the way!! how wonderful.
