By the look of things, this week is shaping up to be a quiet one, perfect timing for a nice detox.
A good cleanse is something I find necessary a few times a year: after the holidays and vacations, but truthfully, anytime I feel like my body needs a bit of a recharge or that I need to get back on track. It may sound crazy, but I actually look forward to these periodic breaks. Well, I look forward to feeling great and energetic after it's complete, because we all know, the discipline of the process is not easy, (I cried last time...) but so worth it in the end.
I’m not one for drinking juice for a week or starving (or both), so I opt for ones that, ironically, let me eat (somewhat) and are just a few days (usually 2 to 3.) While I have made my own guidelines in the past, I like the idea of following an actual program. My mom gave me a Jack LaLanne "Three Day Wholesome Diet" to try after vacation last year and I not just felt better after
almost dying all the sweets and bellinis I consumed, but I gained my energy
back and lost the bloat and weight I had “gained." Hopefully it works and I am back to feeling 100% again!
