Detoxing has it’s up’s and down’s. The very first and most important step io take is to make up your mind to actually get started. You have to decide to do it. The determination comes in the head first; that’s what gets you through any type of change in your life. I had to make up my mind to start on this Thursday morning. So Wednesday night, I prepared the first day’s food. The last thing you want is to wake up hungry, grab the foods you always eat and wreck the first day of a detox.
This one is new for me. It is supposed to be for 28 days but Thanksgiving is coming before then. So if I make it for about 20 days I’ll be happy.
Each morning I will stat by drinking cups of warm water. That’s not bad as I do that as often as possible anyways. I also will have a green smoothie which is also one of my habits. I’ll just include some lime or lemon juice to the smoothie and cut out the banana using only one apple for sweetness with my dark, leafy vegetables. There are many types of detoxes you can do. Most of the foods on this one are vegan, many, but not all are raw.
It always feels good to get started – your body can feel so cleaned out. I pay a lot of attention to my digestion anyway because of my health concerns and the detox is assisting with that.I have to remember to eat as much of the food as a I want. The purpose is not to feel hungry all of the time. A detox will often bring about a cleansing headache and some tiredness depending on how much you have to get out of your system. So by the end of day 1, I was ready to get in bed after a long day of work. So far feeling good and ready to try to the new recipes I have to use over these next days.
Oh- I forgot to mention; it’s necessary to drink as much water as possible durign the detox. Toxin will be moving out of th ebody so the water helps to flush them out.
