Today I’m feeling extra excited to start my 21 day detox cleanse on January 4th 2012. Maybe it’s because I had some dessert last night that I really could have skipped (shared with great friends, though, does that mitigate?), and Friday night I just had too much fun at an awesome house party (with bands!) in our neighborhood. This time of year when it’s still dark at 7AM and then dark again at 4:30 PM just lends itself to partying, there’s no shortage of opportunity to eat something sugary on top of drinking. Seems like fun at the time!
I’m just the kind of person that thrives on structure. I like a program. The Standard Process Purification system, which I will be using, makes it pretty easy. You eat yummy salads, they give you recipes like Beet Salad with Oranges, Green Bean Salad, etc. and you make fresh dressings out of olive oil, citrus and flax oil. Your protein for the first 10 days comes from the Standard Process protein shake that you can have up to 3 per day. I have them all the time anyway, they’re a great fast breakfast option packed with nutrients. After 10 days you may add fish or chicken to your meals. Most people experience weight loss, 10-15 pound average, and lots of other benefits from improved function of the main organs of elimination, liver, kidneys, colon, lymph system, and skin.
I got a text message the other day from a friend who said “I simply can’t wait for the cleanse!!!”
I couldn’t agree more.
