For the past week and a half I have been doing the 10 Day Whole Food Detox from Vanessa at Our Natural Connection. So now that its all said and done I'd thought I would share my thoughts and experiences with you.
What I really enjoyed about the program was it's simplicity. There were no weird foods that were hard to find, no challenging recipes and the food prep was quick and easy. I love the fact that every part of the 10 Day Whole Food Detox was about getting back to basics and using real, natural foods to reset and retrain your body.
This is not some crazy lettuce diet or liquid fast. The10 Day Whole Food Detox is just that - whole food. The emphasis on foods that are nutrient dense, easy to digest and aid in the detox process. I also like that near the end, good clean proteins were reintroduced.
Of course, with any of the cleanses or detoxes I have done in the past, the hardest part for me is kicking the caffeine. It's not so tricky skipping coffee, but the withdrawal headache usually around day 2 or 3 is less than pleasant. At least that only last about a day and then after that I start to feel much better.
So how did I do with the detox? Well, I wasn't hungry or starving and the meals were simple and delicious. And oh my....the smoothies....AHHH-MAZING!! I totally felt like I was doing something bad every morning as I indulged in their decadence.
After 10 days, I felt lighter, calmer and more energized. And I even lost 3 pounds! The 10 Day Whole Food Detox was a great way to get back on track, clear out some old gunk from my body and feel alive again.
