My Attempt at Dr Oz Three Day Cleanse, a review

Sunday, June 23, 2013

I never watch Dr Oz, his eyebrows freak me out. But when I was looking for something to clean out the week of chips and dip that I ate while dh and #3 son were at Scout camp, I found a three day, one sheet (whatever that is) cleanse on his website. It looked decent and I found a blog of a chick that did it and said it was a lot of food.

I enthusiastically went and bought all the ingredients for the three drinks that you drink each day. And because I was so excited about starting, I started that very day with the lunch drink. As I began cutting up the FOUR sticks of celery and washing the entire cup of kale, I thought to myself, "This is not going to fit in the blender." So I halved it and it filled up one of the large cups that my body builder son uses to put his gainer shakes in. And it was hard to drink. The taste was not bad, it wasn't yummy, but I could drink it two more times, except for the texture. I had to chew every mouthful. I couldn't finish it and thought, "Wow, this is going to be a long three days." I had chicken and couscous with quinoa for supper. I just wanted some solid food.

Day two, I had, or rather I made the green tea with stevia that the cleanse call for. It ain't no cup of coffee, y'all. I threw it out and made myself a single, normal sized cup of coffee with half the sugar and 2% milk instead of cream.

The breakfast drink was good. I halved it, but it was only about 8 oz. I had the supper drink for lunch. The thought of trying to drink that lunch drink again was too much. The supper drink was also good, also halved and also only about 8 oz. I decided from now on, I could make the lunch drink as a salad. I had a ground turkey taco with fresh homemade salsa for supper.

I quickly came to the conclusion that this three-day cleanse, Dr Oz or no Dr Oz, was not well thought out. I decided I could just make the halved breakfast and supper drinks for breakfast and maybe lunch or for snacks. And that I would just get busy with eating healthier, less processed food. And move more, a lot more.

I joined a 28 day exercise challenge, here on Spark People and I will press forward with the C25K running program that I have been doing off and on for a few weeks. I have an app that reminds me to drink water and I already feel better since I have been doing that for three days.

I have 25 pounds to lose.
