    No Food

    How will you have the energy to get through the day? I also worry about diets like this that actually make you lose weight because they eat through your muscle density!!

    I am majorly peeved. After Christmas DH and i decided we had to drop some weight. We have been eating controlled portions and eating very healthy. We weighed ourselves yesterday, DH lost 15 lbs, and i lost 1/2 a pound !!!

    Default Re: Detox and Detox Pills.

    Just got my first email today from detox. It's not REALLY 3 days. There is a prep time and a wean time. Prep is supposed to start today with certain fruits and vegetables & avocado. No meat, sugar or bread or alcohol. Yikes! It's Saturday! I'll do my best. More prep Sunday, Monday then start juice schedule Tues/Wed/Thurs. Weaning off is an intro of fruit, then adding veggies and by day four or five I can add meat. It's more like an 11 day program. That kind of scares me. but I'm gonna try hard because I have to get rid of my addiction to diet soda, carbs and sweets. Yesterday NO DIET SODA! Had lots of lemon water instead. No first thing in the morning craving either. Must go to the store right away though!

    There is no way, I will not lose at least 5 pounds during this time...the real question is if it/I can change my behavior and not put it back on!

    This is actually phase two of my reboot. I started a 60 minutes for 60 days excercise commitment with some friends on facebook. I have missed a couple of days - unavoidable but am starting to feel the "need" to get my 60 in, not the "have to"!

    Total weight loss goal is 20 pounds. Four down!

    It's noon, almost 1: pm and I just read the email! Good thing I haven't eaten anything yet, but I was about to get ready to go for brunch at my favorite french bakery. Looks like that's not happening now.

    I am so glad they sent out that email though. It makes the pre-detox sound so easy. ehhe, except for the whole now coffee, sugar, or alcohol part.


    3 day pre-detox starts now! Good luck Kmarney


    I hope you reach your goals soon. Are you going to be working out during the detox?
    I hope after this whole experience is over I feel completely brand new. lol. And don't go back to as much junk food and coffee.


    If any of you are interested here's the email from BPC:

    Ok for those of you dong this, is this really safe? How can not eating be good for you?

    I'm with FedUp on this one, how will you get energy?

    This stuff sounds like a fad that seems "cool" but I've heard they're not healthy.

    it is worrisome!

    FYI,

    I am a vegetarian. I do eat dairy, but no meats of any kind. I also don't drink soda, pop, juices, high sugar stuff or fried stuff.
    I love veggies and fruits. I was told that i eat too many fruits which have high percentage of natural sugars, which once again adds to the weight scale. ( my butt absolutely refuses to go down....i blame it on having kids ..LOL )

    While fruits and veggies are really good for you, they supply only vitamins and minerals and to a limited extent calcium. In order to have strength, a sharp mind and muscle, you NEED to have proteins. You can temporarily shut out carbs altogether, but not proteins and dairy...

    I hope Kmarney and Jennifer, you guys take care of your health. Stay safe and good luck!

    So, I'm on day two of the pre-diet and I did have fish for lunch. I was a little light headed before, I must admit! I did do my 60 minutes on the elliptical today and I plan to work out during the entire time of the detox. Not heavy, except tennis drills on Tuesday - the first day. I have been so bad with carbs and diet soda that two pounds are gone already. While I have no documentation of this, I believe diet soda is basically an evil food entity that I have been completely addicted to! Not even craving it though, I'm drinking so much lemon water - which I do love by the way. Major temptations today though. The kids made chocolate chip cookies and I did have a pinch! But not what I would have used to do. Did an extra time on the elliptical to help make up for it! :)

    Funny, I fed the kids salmon for lunch today and told them about the omegas that make you happy.... my 12 year old daughter said "Funny. I don't feel so happy right now!" :)

    I'm taking this time of detox including pre and post cleanse to give myself a paradigm shift in the matter of food. Finally, I have the right attitude to do this!

    Also, this cleans/detox includes a cashew nut milk drink and another juice that contains protein. I agree with you on that point. I would never do a detox that was pills or lemonwater with maple syrup!

    Day 3 of the pre-detox! Can not wait to start tomorrow! I did pretty well with the eliminating of sugars, coffee, junk food, salt, alcohol, etc. And more importantly in my case, stopped eating past 9: pm. I usually go to bed pretty late, around 2: am, and always get a late snack night. Which is a horrible habit.

    The last few days I've eaten pretty well. Breakfast fruits and yogurt, lunch something from the juicer (parsley, spinach, cucumber.. or apple, celery..), and dinners usually something lite. 1 day was Pho (tofu and noddles in a broth), then simmered vegis in vegi broth, and tonight I think I'll have a salad. Plus of course, I've been drinking lots of green tea and water.

    This isn't really much different from before, only I would probably be eating alot more fish (uncooked, like sushi) or adding carbs in the mix and snack food.


    lil, I agree that there are some detox plans out there that probably aren't the best for you.. however, as Kmarney mentioned, this detox has lots of protein.

    So, it's arrived! I have 6 juices to drink - in order - throughout the day.

    First Juice is the green juice: romaine, celery, cucumber, green apple, spinach, kale, parsley and lemon. It's pretty decent except I don't like the cucumber aftertaste. I normally like cucumber but this isn't appealing this way. However, it is drinkable and I can take 3 6 servings fine. (2 per day). Each drink is 18 ounces, That's 72 ounces plus water. Lots of liquid!

    Wow, Jennifer, you are sooo good! Do you make your own juices! You'll probably have limited shock to your system. Me... gonna be a different story, I'm sure!

    Time for drink #2! Pinapple Apple and Mint. It would be delicious with some rum and crushed ice!

    Drink # 3 is Green again. I'll post the others later today.

    I just recently picked up a Breville juicer a couple months ago and love it. Nothing tastes better than fresh juice! mmm. Plus the added benefit of not spending as much on the daily trips to the local juice bar. That adds up after a while.

    The Green Drink was pretty good.. I wanted to use up all the vegis in my fridge before they expired. (with help from Martha Stewart - minus the papaya).


    Pinapple Apple and Mint.. omg that sounds so delicous! I'm already excited to try that one.


    What time did your package arrive this morning? I hope mine doesn't come late.
