Detox - day 1

I had a really hectic day today. Lots of things to do at work, lots of errands to run after work, and today was the first day of my fruit detox program. At first glance the program looks like there’s not enough food and it had me wondering, am I going to make it? I didn’t want to get into a program at the expense of being weak and not having enough energy to do any exercise … but, after going through the list of fruits and trying to eat whatever was prescribed for each meal, I found that I just couldn’t consume them all. I mean, a banana, a pear, half a papaya, grapes, and strawberries – just for breakfast! I was stuffed. I know it’s not a fast. It’s not a starvation plan. It’s not even a diet … but still, I was full after a few fruit … and tired of chewing by lunchtime. Still, I’ve committed to doing this. I want to follow it through. After all, it’s only 3 days – what’s the worst that can happen?

Detoxes are good every once in a while. Remember that it's not a lifestyle, just a cleansing routine. I do a 3-day detox at least once a month and try to do the Master Cleanse once every six months. It helps me reenergize and refocus.

Fruits are good because of the variety, and, as you've found out, they can be very filling. However, you've got to make sure you don't have too many fruits that are high in sugar. It's all about balance.

How is the rest of the program going?
