@OHIOMOM - Hummm you might be on to it. I have friends who do Advocare and they are doing a long detox - 3 days with just liquid (protein shakes) but now they are on healthy food like salads with flax on it - stuff like that. Maybe that is what is being talked about - I just cannot fathom 3-4 weeks of just liquid.

OK, I found a little about what you were talking about online, without getting a book that goes into depth about the detox I can not say I completely understand your plan, tho what I gleam is it is not a detox like a normal detox where you are drinking a substance and cleaning out your innards, but you are eating in such a way as to rid yourself of all the bad stuff in your system, eating healthy. Making healthy choices to get the processed stuff out and therefore reduce your cravings for the bad stuff. If that is what this plan is, then yes go for it, it does not sound drastic at all, am I correct?

I would be very leery of this - that is way too long of a period for detox - usually they are 3-4 days or no longer than 7. Your body will rebel and you should get your doctor's ok if you really really really think this is ok as it may mess with any health issues you may have.

What is this 3-4 week detox all about? I have never heard of this before, most detox are sudden and severe and I steer clear of them for that reason being that I am diabetic.

I would need to know more before I could give you any more input.

I have never heard of a 3-4 week detox .... personally I would be sick by then ... I can make 2 to 3 days but that is it .. surely you will learn how to eat nutritionally -- we all need to eat right every day to maintain after we lose .... good luck to you.

Hi! I am a 50+ nurse whomis making a choice to start a healthy eating program. ( Not diet). Am starting program by Dr. Pamela Peeke from her hunger fix book. Stars with a detox period for 3-4 weeks to. get you to stop buying and eating your " trigger" foods which for me is sweets in general. Am a bit nervous as have done the lose and gain thing too many times to count. This is about ridding your diet of the junk that you stress eat ,binge or eat when stressed out.Would appreciate help from anyone having done this recently.Thanks to all.
