7-Day Detox Programme: How It Got Started

It's funny how I got suckered into an ad placed in our local newspaper... I was reading and saw this detox ad. Read on and got myself into the detox product website. I left the website running, hubby read about it. We discussed a bit on it and I was saying that I'm in bad shape - lack of exercise, long hours at work, body aching all over, forever feeling lethargic... you know the gist. Next thing I knew, I had a box sitting at my kitchen counter. So, that was how I got myself into a 7 days detox programme!

To cut long story short, I'm gonna document my experience of this programme on a day-by-day account of what I did and ate. I had wanted to start on Christmas Day after calculating the days needed before I get back to work but being the lazy me, I only opened the box and read the booklet in the morning. It was kinda late to get myself out to buy the fruits and vegetables (this spelt EXCUSES, no???)... yada yada so I only got on to the programme on 26 Dec.

I decided it is best to have this done when I'm at home since the detox product booklet mentioned that one may experience unpleasant short-term reaction in the first 3 days ie. mild diarrhoea, frequent urination, extreme fatigue, sleepiness, irritability, headache, nausea, vomitting etc!!!! Did they freak you out??? Actually there were more gross stuff but I decided not to put down here hehe...

Looking at the bright side, I was hoping to achieve at least 4-5 of these:

  • - increased energy and vitality
  • - regular bowel movement
  • - better digestion and elimination
  • - better immunity
  • - better sleep
  • - improved skin tone and radiance
  • - improved sense of well being and clearer mind

Pea did asked me if this programme will make one lose weight. The programme booklet did said one could but this is not a slimming programme. The weight lost was merely from old feacal matter in the intestines where one could accummulated up to 10-25 pounds of such waste. Anyway, losing weight is not my aim for this detox thingy. As I've told Pea, I do not own a weighing scale hence I won't be able to tell if I have lost any. She asked me to test by squeezing myself into the tightest skirt hahaha... ok Pea, I will do that, just for you.

The programme mentioned that it is not necessary to change one's diet during the 7-day period but since I'm on it, what the heck, I decided to somehow TRY to follow the eating plan. Not entirely but pretty close. *sobs* that means I had to drop any big makan plans which includes the floggers' Retro party on 28 December. Sorry guys but I just have to do this to flush out all the negatives and start anew eating my way to a healthier 2008.

The next few posts will see my day-to-day account of my experience. I will not name the detox product here as I'm in no position to endorse such product or programme to anyone. However, if you wish to know the name of the product, do drop me a line.

Very brave of you to try it, since not many would have the patience or determination to even imagine the attempt! :)

More so, since you are gonna document your daily progress. We await with bated breath... (Wah, like following limited TV drama only...)
