I hear you about the sugar. I have 3 young girls (ages 8, 5, and 3), and it's very difficult to stick to kid-friendly foods that have low or no sugar. My kids do like fruits and veggies, so we're ahead of the curve there at least, and I do try to cook at home as much as I can and sneak in veggie purees here and there. They actually prefer things like sloppy joe and mac and cheese with butternut squash puree in them. Go figure!

I've never done a detox, but hearing a lot about it. I have been eating 95% 'clean' for about 1 and a half years, so not sure if it is needed.

One FB friend of mine said she did it and it took her pain away out of her knee's and when she returned to a typical American fare (fast food) for a weekend the pain returned.

Sugar is enemy #1 in my opinion --- it is a drug -- of sorts and can really affect a persons health. Our society is so addicted to sugar they just don't see it until they experience the difference with a 'clean' diet . . . or a detox. My daughter is going through sugar withdrawal currently and it is a battle, but she has discovered amazing things --- her long time acne issues (she is 35) has almost disappeared and she feels more energetic overall.

Update! NO MORE Wiggle room on my weight! Still figuring out how to keep balance and stay in charge. Staying active but could step it up again.

I got the book "Clean", by Alejandro Junger from the library and have been following those recommendations for the 21 day detox. I've lost 10 lbs. in a week, and I feel awesome. It's just nuts.

Yesterday was my 7th day of the clean detox, and the first day that I've taken my kids to the playground and PLAYED with them, instead of sitting on the bench, watching them.
