Yep, I’m a cranky bitch on this detox. A friend said I’d feel vaguely flu-ish and she is right! I do feel lots better on the inside, and slept better after just three days. Of course, there's that slight headache today.
Lunch is chicken, broccoli, mushrooms and cucumber slices, and water. Lotsa green tea. At the Firkin Fest on Saturday i'll probably just have lots of water, maybe a shot of hard cider.
Doing this more for the medical at this point- most of April I've been having insane heartburn, gall bladder attacks, taking zantac and tums all the time. Of course, I also eat a lot of junk, now that I'm making myself really look at it. i spoke w a nutritionist friend over the weekend and I decided to cut out a few things this week to see how I feel. plus, overweight ppl are more susceptible to gall bladder issues.
And it’s like ok, i can not eat dairy for a week (coconut milk is great), or no cheeseteaks for 2 months, or no diet coke. im trying to make small tweaks. that said, im still having bread here and there or a cookie.
This weekend i really took stock in what made me feel bad. cheesesteaks, pizza, red sauce, cheese, beer, (wine is ok, just half a glass). Really making me say wow this food isn't good that I'm eating!
diet coke is the devil even tho steve and i love it, so we are going to try to cut it out a bit. Instead doing lemon water and then a smoothie in the am, then a shot of ACV in water before lunch.
So, stay tuned!
