I started the day off with fresh squeezed citrus juice. I juiced a grapefruit, a large navel orange, a lime, and a lemon. It was a lot of juice, but no problem because I was splitting in half with the hubs! It was yummy.
Then I went to the gym and did 45 minutes on the elliptical machine. Killer when you haven't really eaten. I came home and had more juice. This time I juiced three apples, 2.5 carrots, a bunch of spinach and then I added TRI-Cleanse, Perfect Food RAW Organic Green Super Food Powder, and Green Tea. Again, this made a lot of juice but I sent half of it to work with the hubster.
Also, just a couple of things about this detox that I want to put out there. I'm not a professional. I have no nutritional/health certifications or anything like that. This is just me trying out a detox. The idea came from a post Tosca Reno did about her detox. My detox is similar, but it's not an exact copy of Tosca's. To start with she only juiced vegetables the first two days. There's no way I could do that. I just know I wouldn't stick to it if I only veggie juice and broth. Not gonna happen. So, I'm making it work for me and adding in fruit juice as well. All of my juice is juiced at home by me, so there's no store bought low nutrition juice. I also did not make my own bone broth like Tosca did. I just didn't have the time or a bunch of bones (that kind of grosses me out anyway).
I also know that this is not a permanent weight loss solution. Here are my expectations: I will lose weight, I'm thinking 5-10 pounds. I weighed this morning and I was at 190 (I've been fluctuating between 188 and 190 since vacation) I'm thinking I'll get below 185. I'm also fully aware that almost all of what I lose will come back when I start eating normally again. I'm doing this detox because I feel like I need a fresh start when it comes to food. I've been eating so much junk recently (on our vacation and since we got back). I think the detox is going to get me back on track and help me get rid of some of those awful cravings for crap food.
So, that's my info for day 1 of the detox. Here's to 6 more days of it.
