I have always wanted to try to do a detox. This is my first time ever and I didn’t want to starve myself (starving sucks…food rocks!).
So, I did some research and found one which could work for me. My goal was mainly to cleanse my system, and if I did lose some weight, great…if not, no problem at all.
I ordered the GNC®– Complete Body Cleansing, 7-Day Program from Amazon which was around $12 cheaper than the store price. It is an all-natural system cleanse.
Foods to limit: dairy, eggs, processed/canned foods, caffeine. Gluten and artificial preservatives.
Foods to choose: Soy milk, brown rice, soy cheese, organic fruits and veggies with loads of water, fish, skinless poultry
All natural spices and condiments. Rice pasta, quinoa, and rice bread
Oils: olive oil, sesame oil, flax and clarified butter
I thought it would be great to journal my experience.
I need my daily coffee, but I started my morning with
– banana smoothie with a powder
– AM pills. Those pills are huge. My morning was groggy since I was deprived of caffeine and I don’t recall my morning.
-Brown rice with chicken curry
-1 cup of decaf green tea with lemon
-1 probiotic pill
By evening, my headache was unbearable, so I caved…I had a cup of coffee with a little soy milk.
30 minutes in and I felt ‘normal’.
-Garlic spaghetti [rice noodles]
Day 1 went fine. I was full the whole time… except for the coffee.
