Did you have "live healthier" on your new year resolution list? Are you nodding widely right now? Thought so! ;) It's time to get started ladies, it's time to jump on that health bandwagon again! If you've been a long time follower you know that detoxing is something I do several times a year and as I have received a lot of questions and emails on how I usually do it, I decided to share some more details with you this time.
I always try different methods, but the end results is always the seem.... I feel accomplished, healthy, radiant and lighter. Keeping with my new year resolutions (point 2) today I'm starting my biggest detox ever! :)
This time I'll be combining several different methods that I tested in the past and have proven to work for me. I'm not saying it would work for anyone, but in all honesty, if you're disciplined (and i know it's damn hard sometimes!) I just don't see how it wouldn't... so here are the specs.
My two week detox will consist of two different phases. In the first week, (starting today) I'm going on a liquid/soup diet. I actually decided to order from a delivery service specialized in healthy diet and detox. The daily menu, which consists of 4 different kind of soups and 2liters of detox lemonade will be delivered to my doorstep for less than what I'd normally spend on food on an average day. However, you do not need a food service to do this kind of a detox. There are thousands of healthy soup recipes out there and with a little planning and research you can make your own healthy soups, just avoid any recipes including pasta (or any carbs) or cream and use a lot of fresh veggies and fruits (oh yes, fruit soups are the best! have you ever tried one? :)
In the second phase, in week 2, I'll switch to a raw food diet eating only fruits, veggies and seeds. :) I'll keep you update on how it goes and will post my meals on twitter for anyone who's interested.
January is still not over and I feel like my body needs a fresh start badly! Anyone wants to join me? :)
