I consider myself relatively healthy so when a five-day detox had such a profound effect on me, I was surprised to say the least. Before the detox, I was having frequent headaches, which I blamed on too much time in front of the computer, and I was having some minor skin breakouts. I was also feeling like I was in a haze or fog—this is what concerned me most.
I was excited to get started. I followed the plan to a tee and was surprised that I wasn't hungry at all. Instead, I simply felt proud of myself for taking the challenge.
I woke up excited to take on day two of the detox. Today was a little more difficult as I was craving my normal late night (not-so-healthy) snack. Instead I had a cup of herbal tea and went to bed.
I slept better last night that I have in months! I do however have a slight headache this morning. This is most likely due to cutting back on processed foods and more specifically sugar. I know from experience, this will pass quickly.
Not only did I sleep soundly again last night, but also my skin has cleared up and I seem to have a glow that I haven't noticed in a very long time!
I can't say enough good things about how I feel on the five-day detox. I jumped into it hoping it would help me feel better and not only are my headaches gone and the fog lifted but my skin is bright and clear and I have more energy than I've had in a long while. To top it off, I lost a few pounds without even trying!
I've shared the five-day detox plan with many of my friends and they have had similar results. So I thought I would share it with all of you too. I put together a simple-to-follow five-day detox challenge and included everything you need to get started—daily meal plans, shopping list, a short-on-time option, etc. You can learn more HERE. Please share your feedback and results if you decide to take the challenge. I can’t wait to hear about your success!
