12 days of Clean Eating

I have just started a 12 day detox in preparation for future toxification.

This time I’m trying the Wild Rose Herbal D-TOX. It’s 100% Canadian plus you still eat. Real food. Like the last cleanse I did there are some foods that you cannot eat. 12 days of no mushrooms, bananas, cheese or peanuts. Or milk or alcohol. Plus a whole lot of other things. But I can eat a lot of fish. And drink plenty of water.

Hopefully the combination of this cleanse and going to the gym will help me shift some weight off me.

Current weight: 153 pounds. Height: 5’3″.

I know I’m not a horrible weight for someone my age that’s had a couple of kids. But I feel better a bit lighter. The problem is I love junk food. Potato chips, bacon, french fries and candy. Bacon. Yum yum. I even have plans to make bacon caramel popcorn at some point… but I digress. It would feel nice to go to the beach and not be self-conscious. Not that I actually go to the beach. I think about it though.

By the way, I’m turning 35 in a few weeks. We have made some crazy plans that I will blog about later. I’m pretty psyched!

Hope everyone is enjoying summer.

  1. I’ve done the Wild Rose detox. It was okay, I didn’t notice any huge difference in the way I felt. I did drop about 5lb which I gained back after going back to eating normally. I don’t want to be a downer, but detoxes are not the way to lose weight. Most of them, this one included, is a bunch of laxatives with some herbs that are supposed to clean you liver. There is only one way to lose weight, eat healthy food in small portions throughout the day and exercise 30 – 60 min most days of the week. There are no quick fixes and the last 5 – 15lb are the hardest to lose.

    Don’t use laxatives to lose weight kids!
