Final Week of the 12 Week Challenge!
The last challenge is difficult. We are going to detox. Your choice is how long you choose to detox. Most recommend somewhere between 3-7 days. But that can get difficult and tricky. Detoxing is a great way to kick start weight loss and kick sluggishness. But friends, it is certainly no easy task. Here is a basic outline of what I do when I detox. (Try First Cleanse for a good colon cleanser)
-Raw fruits and veggies only. Water only. Only vineger and a small splash of oil on salad. No meat. No dairy. Eat every 2 hours. (Take a colon cleanser at night)
-Raw fruits. Mostly raw veggies, or some lightly steamed. No meat, No dairy. Water only. A handful of raw nuts or seeds. Eat every 2 hours. (End the day with a colon cleanse)
- Raw fruits. Mostly raw veggies, or some lightly steamed. No meat, No dairy. Water only. A handful of raw nuts or seeds. You may add 2 eggs into your day and 1 serving of white fish. You may also add beans. Eat every 2 hours. (End the day with a colon cleanse)
Day 4- Here is where it gets tricky. They recommend a 24 hour water fast. That means only water for 24 hours. I have done it. It was in the middle of summer and water felt good to drink all day long. I started at 5:00pm and went to 5 pm the next day. DO NOT DO THIS BEFORE TALKING WITH YOUR DOCTOR IF YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH ISSUES. You can skip this part if you choose, or try cutting it down to a by a little over half. Start your water fast at 6 pm and go til noon the next day.
If you want to detox longer than 4 days, then just repeat whichever day you feel most comfortable with. When getting back into routine, try to choose whole grains in your diet. Avoid greasy foods. This can really help you get a good bit of weight off in a few days. You really get a lot of energy and feel healthy. I will warn you though, it is a detox, I usually get a headache the first day or 2. And they recommend you do not take anything for it.
