Day 1 of Detox!

I’ve never done a detox program before.  As part of the one-year anniversary of my blog and becoming a weight fat loss coach recently, I decided that this would be the perfect way to celebrate a year’s milestones on this primarily foodie blog and to launch off a healthy lifestyle.  It’s almost like, hey, my food blog has reached 1 year old now?  Let’s cleanse out the system so that we can put in more miscellaneous food in the next 365 days!  Haha, but really, this is something new that I’ve never done before and I’m all about trying new things to better myself. 🙂

When I first heard of this detox program from my friend Eric, as a foodie, I was thinking, “No way.  There’s no way that I would give up a week of delicious and meaty foods to do this cleansing thing.”  However, the idea latched on to me and I became more and more curious about it.  Eric has seen great results from detoxing for a week by eating clean — no processed foods, red meat, dairy, sugars, fats, sodium.  Since then, it’s actually changed his palate and he doesn’t crave all the meaty and processed foods anymore.  Another group of friends recently challenged themselves to go on this same 7-day detox and they all felt incredibly amazing after braving through it.

So, here I am taking the plunge and trying this out for the first time.  For the next 7 days, I’m going to try my best to blog about my experience — my thoughts, maybe some food pictures, how I’m feeling, recipes of clean meals, etc.  If you don’t hear from me, it probably means I fell over from lack of carbs and protein and at which point, you should search me out and feed me.  Lol, but all joking aside, here’s what the detox kit looks like:

It’s a cleansing tool that should be used twice a year for optimal digestive, liver and colon health.  There are three parts that cleanse, rejuvenate, and maintain proper digestive health.  With all the food that I eat when I dine out, it’s important for me to make sure that all my digestive organs are working properly so that I can continue to enjoy these delicious foods (and so that you guys get to read my food blogs ;)).  It’s sort of like taking your car out for an oil change or to cleaning out your room to maximize productivity and effectiveness.

This morning, I took my daily set of supplements and antioxidants before taking the release tablets and advanced fiber powder from the detox kit.  When you mix the fiber powder with water, it tastes like berry juice lol.  It actually tastes really good!  It’s important to get in your vitamins if you usually take them while you’re doing your detox. 🙂

Earlier this week, I’ve been stuffing myself with lots of food and carbs!  Read my post yesterday where I ate lots of pasta to fill myself up.  It’s also because I know I won’t be able to get any carbs or meat into my system for the next 7 days.  I got a list of groceries items that are all fruits and veggies so that I am ready for these 7 days of detox.  I also weighed and measured myself.  Let’s see if I get any difference after these 7 days of clean eating!

**By the way, this detox isn’t THAT extreme.  The guidelines advise you to limit your intake of proteins and starches, but if you really need to have some protein, you should have some lean chicken or turkey.  The other group of friends that did this last week completely cut out all crabs and protein.  Seriously, they ate nothing but fruits, vegetables, and water.  I’m going to try this too this week.

Good luck to the other eight friends that I’m doing this detox with!  May our bodies appreciate the next 7 days we’re going through in order to have a better liver, colon, and digestive health!  *clinks water glasses because we apparently can’t have tea, coffee, or alcohol during these 7 days either* 😛

    I’ve heard really good things about Nutriclean. But, I wonder if it would work for me since I’m balancing cardio + body building, hum!

    *clings a water glass with you* 😀

      Yeah, I’ve heard lots of good things too about Nutriclean and it’s the reason why I decided to go with this detox. Also, I have a lot of friends who used this kit so I know it must be reliable. 🙂

      For you, you can probably try it too, but don’t go too extreme with the cutting out of proteins since you’ll need that to body build. 🙂

      Haha, thanks for the water glass clinking 😀
