Detox Day 1 of 3

I am working with two top-notch plant-based nutrition coaches: Katherine Nilbrink and Chef AJ. I’ll talk more about what I’m doing with Chef AJ’s program in a future post. I am working with Katherine one-on-one. I first connected with her when she was the instructor for the T. Colin Campbell Plant-Based Nutrition Certification course  I was taking through eCornell University. That was about three years ago. Katherine has seen how I have struggled to transition to a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle and lose weight. She offered to help me at the beginning of this year. She is working on rolling out a couple new programs that I will share with you when they are ready. You could say I’m her BETA tester. I am more than willing to be the guinea pig for this program because I believe in the whole-food plant-based lifestyle. I want to get healthy and help others along the way.

First up on Katherine’s program is a 3-day detox that I have been putting off because I didn’t think I would stick with it. I wanted to tie it in with something which turned out to be my birthday. I will turn 52 on Monday, so the days leading up to my birthday is when I decided to do the detox. I want to be able to start a new chapter in my life that is opposite direction of food addiction and leave behind all the baggage that comes with it.

Today is Day 1 of 3 for the Detox. I took the day off work today and stayed in bed as long as I could. I think I was still trying to delay starting the detox program! I just didn’t want to have to think about food. I’m tired of it being an issue, which is why I ultimately decided to get up and get on with it.

Surprisingly, I’m not hungry today. No cravings. I drank 32 oz of water with lemon when I got up which is something I do every day anyway. No change there. I waited until I got hungry to have “breakfast” which was late afternoon. I feel pretty good so far. No detox symptoms.

If I complete this detox, which I fully expect to do, it will be the first time in my life that I have completed one. I’ve tried to do juice fasts a couple times, but barely made it through the first day. I think I made it to the second day once, but it was a struggle.

This detox doesn’t feel depriving at all. It also involves other holistic aspects of life beyond food like pampering yourself – that’s my kind of detox!

I’m looking forward to this detox because I believe it will pave the way to a life of abundant health and energy that is waiting for me!
