Hello sweeties! Long time no post.
I wanted to share this new detox I am currently doing. I’m still all about that fit/healthy life, but I’m not gonna lie, I fell off a little bit. To get back on track I searched Pinterest and found this 7 day detox. It seemed easy enough…let’s see if I’ll be saying that by the end of the detox lol!
This detox claims to help you lose 10-17 lbs in a week. I didn’t think it sounded like the healthiest way to lose weight, but I’m honestly just doing it to get back on track. If I lose weight, great. I needed something that would get rid of all the toxins and junk I was putting in my body. Something that would reset my way of thinking and I thought the GM Detox fit the bill.
Below is the day by day chart of what you eat.
Day 1: Fruit Day! I really thought this was going to be an easy day because I love fruit. It wasn’t as easy as I thought. Throughout the day I was fine…I think mainly because I was at work and didn’t have time to think about it. When I got home I started to feel the hunger pains. I tried to work out but just did a little bit. I thought to myself, the faster I get to sleep, the less I could think about how hungry I was. I also tried to drink a lot of water with each meal. By the end of the day I was tired of going to the restroom.
Breakfast: 1 apple | Mid Morning Snack: 1 plum | Lunch: Fruit salad(peaches, strawberries, grapes) | Dinner: grapes, clementine | Snack : strawberries, grapes | Drink: 3 -16 oz water
Day 2: Vegetable Only Day! Breakfast time was fine. I had a few fingerling potatoes with a side of other vegetables that filled me up pretty well. By lunch, I was starving and tried to snack on raw carrots between bigger meals. I’m personally not a raw carrot eating person, so this was difficult for me. Raw carrots seemed to be the only “snackable” vegetable I could think of. Veggie day was hard for me. Surprisingly, I was craving fruit.
Breakfast: potatoes/mixture of vegetables | Snack: raw carrots | Lunch: mixture of vegetables | Dinner: mixture of vegetables
Day 3: Fruits and Vegetables. Today we are not allowed to eat bananas, but I needed something more substantial. I cheated and ate a banana for breakfast. It helped me get through this day. I felt good by day 3. This day was easy because I could have both vegetables and fruit which meant more substantial meals.
Breakfast: bananas/strawberries | Lunch: vegetables/clementine | Dinner: vegetables/peach/half apple
Day 4: Bananas and Milk. The start of this day went by smoothly. I ate a whole banana for breakfast with some water. At lunch I cut up 2 bananas and put it inside some almond milk, sprinkled with cinnamon. It was delicious, but by the end of day 4, I was over it lol. Here’s where it got tricky. It was one of my co workers birthday and we went out this night. I had 1 drink. The detox was over.
Breakfast: Banana | Lunch: 2 bananas/almond milk | Dinner: 2 bananas/peanut butter(don’t think you are allowed pb:( ) | Drink: “Sex on the Beach” 😦
Me and My Sister’s Results:
I’m human. I ended the detox early, but this was a very interesting learning experience. I learned that I do have the will power to avoid fatty, junky food that my job is always putting in front of me. I learned that when I set my mind to something, no matter how hard, I can get through it.
Detoxing, for me at least, is not about losing weight. It is about challenging yourself mentally and being strong enough to say “no” to certain foods. I am now ready to get back in the groove of things with my healthy eating habits and food prepping. I highly recommend doing this detox with a family member or friend because you will need someone to vent to lol.
