Fruit Detox Update

Holy toledo ... this morning was fine, didn't feel hungry cause the lemonade was keeping me feeling full but about 1pm the belly starts growling begging me to feed it. I just grabbed a couple chunks of watermellon and strawberries ... then after an hour or so the belly started up again, I drank a POT of green tea. =) Hey, it worked. Now dinner will be the tricky part, the kids are having pizza, my favorite & I can't have it. Maybe it will be an early bedtime tonight. I sure hope tomorrow goes better than today has. I can'timagine what I will be feeling like come day 3 or 4. The magazine says 10 days is the perfect amount of time to spend on it but studies show the mini detox works just as well. Now I'm not saying 10 days is crazy but come on ... who in the world can not eat anything more than raw fruits & veggies for 10+ days? Ya have to give it up to the girls who just don't eat to stay thin. Not that I'm saying that's the way to go cause clearly it isn't but they have determination that I just can't seem to grab a hold of.
On a side note to all those who may be interested ... there are side effects besides being a little hungry and at times feeling a littlelight headed. The drink really cleans out the ole back end. =)


  1. I have done quite a few detox cleanses, Emmi, and I just want to encourage to stick with it.

    They are great for losing weight and they are great for increasing your health.

    And after you are slim -- you can continue to eat lots of raw fruit and veggies and your body will thank you! :)

    Hang in there -- it is worth it to detox. The results are awesome.


  2. Good luck on the detox! Have a good week.

  3. Emmi, you are so brave. LOL... I trie* that lemona*e. I only followe* thru til I finishe* the maple syrup which wasn't very long esp because I want real stuff to eat! Where can you buy those slim se*uctions or whatever they are calle*. How much they cost & is it a full month's supply or not?

  4. Thanks for the advice, every little bit helps.
