Alight, so I thought I would give this a go too. I am going to be in Europe for about a month I am going to veer of my normal eating pattern a bit. I am a healthy smoothie fan and eat the foods as part of the detox on a regular basis---except Pineapple.
Well, damn that lunch drink because I have never suffered with such horrible cramping, stomach pain, burning, bloating etc as I do because of the Pineapple contained within. To those wondering how I have narrowed my reaction down to pinneaple; simply I eat all the other foods listed very often and these incredibly bad stomachaches remind me of the time I ate pinneapple pizza at a party in Australia....and spent most of the night/next day in tears.
I cannot make any sort of conclusion on the detox because I have had to abandon it for now but here are a couple of observations:
.I had to cut all the ingredients except almond/coconut butters down by half in all the drinks----who the hell can eat a WHOLE cucumber plus the other stuff in the smoothie?
. I could barely drink two full 'meals' let alone the third plus an extra 'favourite.' Be honest, if you are doing this detox too can you handle all of that? This certainly says something about the portion sizes people are used to in the US or maybe I am a pansy...
. I tracked the drinks, as I do all food I eat...and this detox is so protein defecient it's scary.
. Most of these drinks call for very little water, I needed to add a lot more to make it a drink.
Honestly, after I return from Europe I may need to do a similar 'detox' for a couple of days but the pineapple won't be coming back...
I just realised the email I used for Sparkpeople has been dead for a year! :( Did you add me and I didn't add you back? *Send me a message in my sparkmail/wall*
