Well, here we are… some of us have been detoxing for a few days now. I’ve been keeping up with these Detox Divas (and Gentleman- Go Greg!) about their experiences. Here is what they have to say:
Day 1: You’re Detoxing!
I’ve decided to stay in bed til noon and do nothing. Maybe read or watch a movie. Simply rest for a morning 😉
This is not fun!
I felt rather nauseous all day and hungry when I went to bed. This morning I have hardly been out of the bathroom – fast acting stuff.
I feel good! I am feeling a bit hungry, but I added some fruit etc to fight it off.
Day 2 has started out much better than day one. Must say, the Immune Boosting Soup with those shiitake mushrooms was very tasty and gave me energy.
This is a very hard diet to follow. I’m trying, but sometimes it is very difficult.
Day two and so far not bad…I’m feeling the no caffeine thing this morning but I’ll survive…I really like the chickpea and quinoa salad…detox soup not bad…manna bread delicious…drops are yuk!
Day 3: The Big Hurdle
I barely made it through the day at work with todays menu. I don’t have a juicer so I just ate beet, carrots and celery.
Day two completed…yum detox juice (a bit messy ) and carrot soup yum!…I did make it to the gym today even though I had a dull throbbing headache (no caffeine) but managed to bike (11 minutes) and 40 minutes on the eliptical…headache went away.
Day 4: Keep going!
Feeling light and a little shaky….but water cures it ……eyes are getting very clear…..bowels are productive and feel good.
If it wasn’t for your energy I probably wouldn’t be doing this right now.
In the mornings I have been feeling a nervous sensation throughout my body, is this common?
Day 5: Halfway There!
Had immune soup tonight. Will be back on track tomorrow. Key with this is to plan and prepare very well 😉
For some reason Day 5 is the hardest; I was crabby all day.
I still REALLLY miss my coffee, not just the taste but the smell too…I swear I can hear my Starbucks Anniversary blend (it is sooooo good) calling me!
As you can see, the first 5 days of the 10 day detox are different for everyone. AND difficult! Next up, let’s find out what happens when they finish detoxing. Will they feel better? Have more energy? Stay tuned.
PS. Doesn’t this quinoa dish look delicious? The main reason to do the Detox!
