My journey on the Rapid K program 


I guess I should write about this diet /detox journey I have embarked upon 
I’ve been seeing people with bandaids at various locations behind their ears 

Upon inquiry, I was informed that it was for weight loss …. I was curious I must admit, so I set up an appointment for an orientation for more information 
On Tuesday night I attended the orientation, I was fascinated to find out that this program was not just for weight loss but a detox 
Yes !!! I wanted to be rid of the endless amount of toxins and hormones which I acquired and stored over my many years of life….

I was relishing the possibility that I may finally rid myself of them.

The program was explained to me.

 I knew it wouldn’t be easy , but I don’t eat meat so I knew I was ahead of the game.

The cost wa $150 for the initial visit which entailed getting two steel balls placed behind my ears, weigh in and measurements, and a packet with recipes and instructions on how to go about the process .

I did think the price was a little high, but if all I’d be eating was cabbage and milk it would balance out and the results were definitely worth it!!!!!
Day 1 and 2

Uncooked Cabbage, apples.watermelon, and carrots , were the only foods allowed 

64oz of water a must 

No food before 11 am or after 6 pm

By the second day this started to taste good 

Day 3 and 4 

24-28 ounces Organic whole milk only 

64 oz of water a must 

No food before 11 am or after 6 pm

I had the option of almond or coconut milk but I just stuck with the regular organic milk 
Oh! and the balls behind my ears must be rotated every two hours.

Today is Saturday and day 4 of the program 

I must admit I’m not hungry 

Find myself now really energized 

And I’m really looking forward to the veggie day tomorrow…lol

I thought I’d be staving and experiencing hypoglycemic symptoms 

Thankfully that is not the case , and I’m looking forward to what the rest of this program has to offer.

Anyway even though I find myself very busy, I’ll try to keep you posted on this amazing journey 

The  search for chia seeds and highway Robbery 

I love Chia seeds
I add them to almost anything 

I add them to my salad, my smoothie, my cereal 

In short Chia seeds makes me happy

Chia seeds are beneficial because they rich in fiber, omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins and minerals 
 but finding Chia seeds at a reasonable price has been challenging to say the least

upon finding my supply of chia seeds low, I decided to embark to find some at a reasonable price. 

My search:

I began my search at Walgreens pharmacy 

I thought if it’s this is the price here, then for sure the price will be about the same at rite aid and I could use my 20% off wellness card
 Rite aid

Can you imagine my surprise !!!!!!!!

I was in shock and disappointed, I stood there trying to figure out the reason for the price difference ?

So I walked back to Walgreens and purchased the chia seeds for $12.99

because even though I would get a 20% off in rite aid, it  still wouldn’t compare to the price at Walgreens 
A few days later I was in stop and shop and decided to go in search of the chia seeds and this was their price 


Walgreens online 


Of course I would have to factor in shipping and time to wait for delivery 

Walmart online

 

Amazon.com


So to my favorite pharmacy Rite Aid 

why is this product more expensive in your store, than anywhere else????

Why do all these stores charge different prices for the same product 

There is definitely something not right here……

I can tell you one thing for sure 

My next chia seed purchase will be done at Stop and Shop, as this really is the best value
