My guess is that it IS detox. It shouldn't last more than two weeks, though.
Water and an awareness that this will pass. Think of it like quitting smoking or drinking or anything else that 'holds' you in addiction.
Toxic build up is not the only culprit. you get addicted to the sugars (simple carbs)...
You are on a good path, sister!!! :)
Also, cheat meals (or as I call them, FREE meals) should not mean "fall apart and eat the old way" (you WILL feel like crud), guaranteed.
Example: When we go out to Pizza, I get a soy cheese pizza (mini) with spinach and garlic and a side of broccoli.
I love eating out- so finding ways to eat cleaner has been fun. I keep saying that we live in a great time where options are growing for us- both in the store and in restaurants.
My gripe: MSG & Chinese food. Don't believe a word they tell ya. If they ARENT adding it- ask about their use of vendor supplied soy's and sauces. I'm sure it's in there! So be sure you understand what they mean by NO MSG- it might only mean THEY don't add any.
For about 6 mos now I am having trouble tolerating chinese- and I thinkit's because of the high sodium.
So long to my favorite chinese food restaurant!
I'm only as strong as the coffee I drink and the hair spray I use...
