Detox: Day 1
Yesterday I started a 10 day detox diet. Here's the basic run down.
Day 1 cut out any processed foods, sugars and meat.
Day 2 eliminate all the above and dairy and eggs. Drink two scoops of ultraclear.
Day 3 Cut out all of the above and grains that contain gluten. Drink two scoops ultraclear.
Day 4 Cut out above and all other grains and nuts, you can only eat fruits and veggies. Drink two scoops twice daily.
Days 5-7 You can only eat cruciferous veggies, raw greens and apples and pears. Drink 2 scoops four times a day.
Day 8 Add back fruits and veggies and rice. Drink two scoops three times a day.
Day 9 Add back quinoa, millet and buckwheat and legumes and nuts. Drink two scoops two times.
Day 10 add back foods gently--- it's finally over.
You are allowed olive oil, lemon juice and seasonings through out the ten days. When we were visiting these people they used olive oil and balsamic vinegar on there salads, which I tried when we got home and it's super yummy, so I may "cheat" and use that on salads- since it's only a smidgen;0)
So yesterday I ate Ezekiel bread (it's sugar free), butter, eggs, almonds, tomatoes, apples, pears, and a cup of hot chocolate sweetened with agava nectar.
It is amazing how much food I would have eaten if I wasn't consciously thinking about ever bite that went into my mouth. I eat a lot. I picked now to do it because it's been almost 3 years since I did it last and it's apple and pear season and you can eat those the whole time on the diet.
