So, I did a detox.
The Dr. Oz 3 day detox to be exact. I spotted it on Pinterest one night and on a whim decided to do it.
So, I went to Sprouts and stocked up on everything I needed and made sure to eat one last delicious meal before I was off food for three days.
|Breakfast was a cup of green tea with lemon and stevia and the breakfast drink.|
The smoothies are also pretty huge so it was hard to be hungry. I got a smoothie for every meal and could repeat one of the drinks as an afternoon snack.
I never repeated the lunch smoothie. It was not my favorite, but it was tolerable.

It had cucumber, kale and coconut in it, which are not my favorite things. But I made it every day and chugged it down. The flavor was okay, I wish it was a little sweeter. But I get that I was off sugar.

It was nice to have an excuse to soak in a bath and read the new Carole Radziwill book every night. I do love lavender so that was also nice.
Final verdict it was easier than I thought and I noticed some changes. I slept better than I've slept in months. I'm assuming that's the lack of caffeine. I did feel clearer in the head, but I also got really punch drunk at times between drinks.
A friend at work told me to stop talking because he wasn't sure what I was going to say if I kept talking.
I didn't workout during the detox since I wasn't eating a lot of protein and I thought it could make hunger more of an issue.
According to the scale I lost 5 pounds, I think that was probably water weight. I am staying off sugar and caffeine post detox.
According to Mems my stomach looks flatter. So we'll see if it keeps up.
