I’ve been reading “The Beauty Detox Solution” and it is a pretty extreme lifestyle choice highly focused on raw fresh vegetables. Essentially it promotes a vegan diet, but has a few alternatives if a person choses to have animal protein a few days a week. In addition, it completely cuts out dairy and sugar. Yikes!
My plan is to take the challenge and try it out for a month to see what benefits I notice and then make the determination of how much to continue or not. Even now, I admit I’m not following 100%. My “cheat” is a mid-morning coffee and sweet. I figure that’s still pretty good.
For breakfast, I’ll have one of three things:
- small plate of fruit and veggies
- green smoothie (fruit & veggies such as kale and apple)
- gluten free oats with unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon, and berries
Not super exciting, but we’ll see how it goes. Thus far, I have good energy and have lost 5 lbs – so I’m not complaining!
