I have made it to the end of Day 3. I feel lighter, brighter, and my sense of smell has been heightened. Everything smells delicious, but at the same time, I am not hungry. I read that you can come to this part of the detox and it is called ketosis. Ketosis is a metabolic process that occurs when the body does not have enough glucose for energy. Stored fats are broken down, resulting in a build-up of acids called ketones within the body. So burn body burn, as it feels good for my clothes to be fitting a bit not so snug anymore. The thing with this type of detox is that you need to give your body time to rest, and I have been very busy with running around the city of Toronto, but I am writing this from the comfort of my bed. So if you decide to do this, make sure you listen to your body and take it easy.
Tomorrow will conclude the 4 -day body reset and it will set me up for success with making the right choices going forward again. I have struggled with weight my whole life, or at least from when I can remember. I had always tried the new diet fad, and this has been going on for the past 22 years or so. It started with what Oprah was doing, counting how many grams of fat – 20 was the limit and I had my own counter. Trying to eat no carbs, or carbs, just meat, go vegan, this shake, that shake, and now it’s all about eating the right stuff that is not processed and full of additives – aka – fruits and veggies. But then, you have to be very careful that you have washed it correctly as you don’t want to have any lingering situations.
What I have learnt in the past few days is still to be kind to myself. Comparing who I am to another person is not going to get me any further in life. Not being happy and just being quiet when I should speak up, it not going to get me to where I need to be. Being able to be in a state of clarity makes everything so much easier to deal with. There is no real stress. I feel that we can over complicate so many things and it make it harder to get anything done. I am not proclaiming that a juice detox can solve all the problems in the world, but it is a start to bring yourself into a state of calmness and awareness. Wouldn’t it be great to feel this good every day? Give it a try, only you can make it happen.
