The 9 Day cleanse and detox
It’s been quite the year. One new year’s resolution, one mission and the journey continues.
The year started with a strict eating plan…heard of Dr Dukan? Well, followed it, succeeded, but seriously missed fruit and veg. 6 months, only two breaks later, and I have lost over 20lbs.
So, why the 9 day cleanse and detox?
Motivation: A film shoot in 7 days. (yes, I am shy 2 days)
Choice of product: natural, affordable, accessible (Forever Living Clean 9) and great support.
Research: High juice detox programs last 3-5 days and pump my already sugar starved, craved body with, you guessed it, sugar. They charge anything from £150 per 3 days too a couple of hundred more, for similar results.
Day 1: The plan includes, tabs, shake, aloe vera, no food. Motivation is high, we can do this, it’s the first day.
I woke up weighing and measuring and recording my goals and figures. Then happily had my Clean 9 breakie. Helped by the fact that I was focussed on getting to a meeting on time. Looking at it this way, I didn’t miss breakfast this morning
After a fabulous, successful round of meetings, I did think to pop to shop for some celebratory bubbles, then it hit me. ‘snack time’ a dose of more tabs and lots of water. By noon I had noticed that I had energy, no hunger pains and actually struggled to sip through my shaker of ‘lunch’
4pm has come and gone – slight sense of lethargy (probably no different to any other fast paced day though) and still not hungry either. This is usually ‘raid the fridge for a snack’ time. A check in from the lovely Josephine, on my progress and we’re doing good.
‘Dinner’ – shots of Aloe, some tabs a green tea and more water.
And here I am, I made it, still standing, no giddiness, no hunger pains, no cravings.
I can so do this.
