I had always wanted to do a detox, but never really knew how to do it. I did some research and there are many levels of detox, but I chose to do one that wasn’t too difficult. I chose to do it in two parts. For five days I couldn’t have any caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. This part was easy, because it just meant not drinking tea. The second half of the detox was the harder part. No couldn’t have any processed foods or sugar. And I had to eat a lot of citrus, vegetables, and drink a detox tea. Cutting out sugar was the hardest. While it was a little hard during the five days, cause I was really wanting some chocolate and french fries, it turned out to be really good. Now that I’ve gotten off the detox, I realize I’m wanting more of the foods I was eating while on the detox. I can tell I felt a lot better when I was eating only these things! I’ve included a list below of what I ate. I stayed hungry sometimes, because it seemed like I couldn’t eat enough food. I guess my body was taking in all the nutrients and getting rid of all the bad!
Egg (not supposed to eat, but I didn’t know!), yogurt, oatmeal with raspberries and honey, tea, celery and peanut butter, peanuts, plain popcorn, tomato with pesto
Grapefruit, roasted potatoes with olive oil and herbs, banana and peanuts, popcorn, salad with tomato and red onion, sunflower seeds
