Day 1 of Detox
Posted January 3, 2012on:
Started the day with a glass of warm water and a slice of lemon – cleanses toxins from your body and kick-starts your metabolism. Did yoga for about 40 minutes, and then made the green detox juice (see recipe in detox recipes section).
As the first day, it’s a little tough but getting there. Have been drinking the juice through the day and have had a mug of green tea and water in between. You will find that you would tend to pee a lot (good idea to do any detox over the weekend so you’re in the comfort of your home and not worrying about finding the toilet every 20 minutes) – this is a good thing. This is down to the celery, parsley, cucumber and watercress helping your body eliminate the toxins and bacteria – say bye bye to toxins!
So here’s the thing – I like to have something to eat/chew as part of my detox, God blessed us with teeth when he created us, so I’ve got to use them everyday, detox or not! It’s also my way of letting my brain know that my body has actually been fed. I will be having shredded greens and baked chicken (see recipe for shredded greens in the recipe section. Please note this is made without the garlic and chilli but sprinkled with juice of 1 lemon) at about 6:30pm and have another mug of tea later on.
Hope yours is going ok. Check in tomorrow for day 2 of my detox.
