Ryan and are doing a food detox. It lasts nine days and we can only eat oatmeal, steamed or raw veggies,fruit, 4egg whites, 1 cup of milk and 2 cups of brown rice a day. That is it. Nothing else. No coffee, no bread, no sugar. You eat 5-6 small meals a day, so that you are not constantly hungry. I have done it once before. It was hard, but it can be done. The first few days are the hardest, than you just eat the food and dont think about it.
The detox is suppose to cleanse your body and get you ready to eat smarter, healthier portions and meals. When i came off of my detox, i still wanted salad. I didnt want anything bad. You also will lose some weight, which i am praying works with my constantly breastfeeding body. I am getting antsy with this post baby body and ready to see some changes. Ryan wants to get back into a healthier eating style.
We are also doing it as sort of a complete detox, spiritually, physically and emotionally as well. Eat only vegetables and fruit for a full day straight and you will see just how cleansing spiritually it can be! We both have been having some headaches and getting really tired, but it is getting a bit better. Brown rice has never seemed to wonderful. Ryan wants meat, i want a sandwhich. We both eat raw carrots instead.
It is day 3 of 9 of this food detox and i am now going to go make a salad... i am getting hungry.
