Detox Diet

Today I started my detox diet, the next 3 weeks I am going to 'eat' actually drink the equivalent of 21 servings a day of fruit and vegetables. And that's the only thing... So no meat, fish, diary, wheat, pasta, sugar, salt&pepper, alcohol, caffeine. Just fresh live fruit and vegetable drinks, herbal teas and vegetable broth with NO salt. No chewing for the next 3 weeks!

It's the Martha's Vineyard Diet Detox called 21 lbs in 21 days by Roni DeLuz! Anybody heard of it?

I've prepared myself already for a few weeks, since mentally I HAD to prepare myself for this. It won't be an easy 3 weeks I am going to have. But I am determined to go through with it, for 2 reasons. I really believe in the fact that you need to detox your body at least once a year and I am thrilled of the possibilities to lose 21 lbs! Whenever I follow a diet I NEVER lose the amounts they claim, so this time too I don't think I will lose the 21 lbs, but even if I lose 10 I would be so happy!

This is a drastic measurement, but I need those drastic measurements, otherwise I give up too easily. So wish me luck and I will keep you posted on my days, today there is not much to write yet, since mostly I write my blog in the morning, but I already started with the mile walk and dry brushing your skin before you go into the shower.

I started now since Dirk is quite some days gone this month, so at least I don't need to cook for him, just for the girls. Which I can do easily beside preparing my fresh live fruit and vegetable juices!

In the meantime the girls had this little project going on at home, they bought this kind of 'potato' head, as they call it. But it is a pantie hose filled with sand and grass seeds in the shape of a head. Each day for the last 3 weeks they have been watering this head and this is the result. Every day when they came back from school they rushed to their 'potato' head to see how much hair had grown, so cute!

good luck on the detox - sounds tough, but its all a matter of determination i think. I am on a mega diet at the moment, recruited the help of my doctor this time to give me the determination, ie he can tell if I cheat! ahhhh its hard but I have an aim we have to have our file updated in a few months time and I want to be a slim waiting mummy for them. Looking forward to hearing how your detox goes, if it works for you I migt give it a go down the track. Gem x

Good luck! I am having a hard time just staying on Weight Watchers but I must loose this winter weight!! What the heck is dry brushing your skin?

Good luck both to you, I know how hard it is too lose weight, or even stay the same!! Dry brushing is with a soft dry brush you brush your dead skin cells off your body, it is a great way to detox because there are no dead skin cells blocking your pores. Easy and fast.

I think I may need to go on the detox diet. My mom and dad just left after a visit where we spent the past week eating every yummy thing we could!

Cute little project for the girls! And just Wow again on the detox. I'm like you in that I have to have a really BIG change in order to stick with it. Hoping to lose 10 lbs. myself.

Best of luck! Look forward to hearing your progress!
