Good for you Boni. I lost five pounds in five days of Eat to Live and then regained one pound on the detox. LOL! We'll see what happens this next week.

Eating vegan is a detox if you're eating just the green and healthy stuff. I did Eat to Live for five days and lost five pounds, so clearly that is working.

"Excellent Boni!!! Let's try to get Terry on board!!"

Don't hold your breath on that! Ha! I'm just not into detox's. Have read too much of how it really is not necessary if a person eats whole foods, such as a vegan or raw food diet. The diet itself is a detox.

Not saying I'm right...just saying I'm "not there yet" and probably won't be till science learns more about if it's needed or not.

But I'm not saying you all should not do it...cause I'm no expert on the topic. I'm actually eager to see how things go for everyone on it and I wish everyone well on it!

Take the advice of the site and do it on your days off! We're doing it Sunday to Tuesday to gear up for the seven day juice fast, but I have such a headache today and didn't sleep well at all. Do it at a time that you can rest and relax.

No I didn't start. I have 2 full days of meetings Monday and Tuesday so wouldn't be able to do this. I'm thinking of doing it a bit later in the month.

So today is the first day of the Hungry for Change 3-day detox for me. It started world wide on Friday, but I was still doing my five days of clean eating after the holidays, so I opted to start today. I began my morning with 12 oz lemon/ginger water, followed by one serving of the Super Green Detox juice. I cannot believe how big the salad is that I get to have for lunch. :) I made an extra juice this morning to have midway through the movie we are going to see this afternoon. I'll probably need the activated almonds by the time I get home to tide me over until when the soup is done. I'm really feeling this food! Probably a good thing I did the clean eating program since Jan 1.

How is everyone else doing? Kelly, did you start today?

Haha, very funny, if only it was THAT easy!!!

If you're looking to heal your body from a lifetime of bad eating, you'll need the detox to jump start a lifetime of healthy plant based eating. Right now I'm gearing for a seven day juice fast by following the guidelines of Eat to Live. :D Afterwards I'm forgoing the processed foods and putting the vegetable back into vegetarian. Hopefully this will become second nature to me and I'll not only lose 20-30 lbs, I'll also keep degenerative disease at bay by continuing to eat this way for the rest of my life.

There is no quick detox fix... I have been on a plant based diet for almost 9 months now. I am still detoxing. I eat 95% fruit, 5% veggies. I eat 99% raw (the other 1% is occasionally lightly steamed vegetables, maybe once a month). I read that you will only be fully detoxed after maintaining this for up to 3 years. I am on this lifestlye for life though, this is the right way to live for me, I have never felt better :)

I highly recommend this book on the subject: Mucusless Diet Healing System - Arnold Ehret

Looks good. I don't think I can do the whole thing, but I might be able to do parts of it.

Just to be clear, a 3-day detox at the start of 2013 undoes all the bad food choices of 2012, doesn't it?

Kelly, I am doing the detox Sunday to Tuesday instead of Friday to Sunday and I'm doing the juice fast from Wednesday to Tuesday instead of Monday to Sunday.

Boni - thanks for the link. That 3 day detox plan looks very doable. Hmmmm....Anyone considering it?

Vegfaery - thanks for the link to the 7 day juice cleanse. Unfortunately I won't be able to participate in that due to some obligations early in the week.

Hungry For Change has posted a three day detox article today that those of you who want to get back on track might want to try. It starts Friday, January 4 and goes for the weekend. For those of you new to the plant-based lifestyle, the recipes are easy to follow and the ingredients mostly obtainable. You can leave out exotic ingredients (like nori) and I'm sure you would do just as well. And the recipes would easily adapt to substitutions you might want to make.
