But have I been keeping up with my promise to stay on the healthier end of the culinary spectrum? While I have gained a few pounds back, I'm definitely more conscientious about what foods I eat. Am I perfect with all of my choices? No way. But have I been focusing more on portion control and balance? You bet. Check out what I learned when you read more.
As I mentioned before, I don't expect colossal changes during my five-day detox, but I've got to believe that my energy will pick up soon, and I've got to believe that this case of delirium is just a slight bump in the road called detox. About the post-holiday jean snugness factor? Happily, and much to my surprise, I no longer feel like I've been stuffed into my favorite dungarees. Stay tuned for day three . . .
Yesterday began with a grape-y flavored, vitamin-packed shot, a thick (almost too much so) chocolate-flavored protein shake for breakfast, and a train ride into work. Would I get shaky? Would I feel light-headed on the rails? In short, no. And by the time noon rolled around, my pre-lunch energy-boosting bubble drink, followed by a simple salad with lemon juice and four ounces of protein, was a welcome treat. I didn't even feel left wanting for more. To find out what else happened on day one of my experimental detox, just keep reading.
Flash-forward to present day, and I'm feeling a bit more sluggish, my skin's less than glowing, and my nails have become an embarrassing situation. Enter . . . a detox plan. Recommended by a friend, the David Kirsh Wellness 5-Day Detox Kit isn't exactly inexpensive at $175, but my friend's glowing review made me take the plunge. It also isn't exactly a "beauty detox" per se, but due to the fact that it is more than just a liquid diet and focuses on proper nutrition, I am on board. Starting next week, follow along with me as I aim to flush out toxins in hopes of starting off 2010 with clearer, brighter skin, hair, and nails.
