Extended 2 week detox PHASE 2

Well done to those that completed phase 1 and welcome to those that are starting phase 2

You will continue to lose weight, but it will start to slow down. As fat decreases your muscle weigth increases. So to continue our fat loss/healthy lifestyle we need to adjust phase 1. In phase 2 we will be adding in 2 friendly carbs to our daily food allowance

It's important that when we add in those friendly carbs, and that we do it gradually. So work up to the portions day by day and monitor your weight. When adding in the carbs, do it slowly and bit by bit. If your weight starts to increase cut back a little on the carbs, if your weight keeps decreasing continue to increase your carbs. If it stays the same continue with the same portions or decrease the carbs a little. For example add 1 portion in the first week and add the 2nd portion on week 2

If your body has any negative feedback from adding those carbs in change the food as your body may be intolerant to them. Or decrease the amount your having. Start small and slowly increase, monitoring your weight. If you start to feel bloated or weight is gaining change or decrease that carb.
