I feel good. I mean like clean, less heavy, my spirit even feels a little lighter. Although I realize my body and mind are not completely “healed” in the matter of 5 or 6 days, but I can honestly say that I feel SO much better than I did a week ago. A lot of people and friends that I’ve talked to about this detox program have exclaimed I’m crazy for doing this to myself for 21 days! I’m not doing anything that is that crazy other than giving up ALLLL of my favorite foods and caffeine.
This is not a starvation diet or “just juice” cleanse. I don’t sip lemon water all day. I consume lots of nutrients, antioxidants and fresh vegetables with some fruits and protein as needed. This detox nourishes your body on a cellular level. Instead of eating on a emotional or habitual timetable you feed your body all day.
You should take a look at the book this program is based on –> “1 Pound A Day“. I have learned a LOT about why I feel like crap all the time, emotionally and physically. Simple things that you do or don’t do to, with and for your body can have such catastrophic consequences, its alarming.
I figured if I need a vacation emotionally, maybe my body needs a vacation physiologically. I have been dealt a lot of stress over time and I’ve not taken the best care of this vessel for the last couple years…this is my time to do what I feel will really help me. And if weight loss is one of the biggest side effects, I’ll take it!
