Not to shoot you down, Sweetheart, and we can certainly appreciate your enthusiasm-but any reputable Nutritionist and Doctor will tell you that these trendy "detox" things are really a bunch of crap. Your very best bet is to just continue to track everything that you eat and drink, keep exercising, etc. Stay within your calorie ranges.
All "detox" is, is severely depriving your body of calories-which has proven to be ineffective in permanent weight loss. Oh, you'll lose the weight. No doubt about it...but when you start eating during Christmas, those five pounds will come back *snaps* like that, and then some. When you "detox"-you're starving yourself, which can make your body cling to every single calorie you ingest after the fact.
Please read some spark articles, talk to your doctor, speak to a nutritionist-before you do anything rash like a "detox."
Mind you-I KNOW that I'm huge. I'm once again working on becoming less huge. I was successful before-through binging and purging, taking above and beyond what I should have of prescription diuretics that were not prescribed to me, taking 8x's the recommended amount of OTC laxitives...and no one suspected, because I was clinically obese while I was doing that stuff. All they saw was that I was losing weight, and I was getting all kinds of kudos for it.
Since then, I had gained almost all the weight back, but also taken two college-level Nutrition courses as my elective sciences and gotten A's-so I know a little something about something.
Slow and steady, Honey. If you want to be thin-fantastic-but just be thin in the most healthy way possible.
