I am trying to get back on track and I am planning to start the "10-Day Detox Diet" next week. I can say that I am doing it for health and not weight loss but that wouldn't be completely true. I am doing it for both. It makes a lot of promises regarding several health issues and I am very curious. I have wondered for awhile if dairy, sugar or grains are having a big negative impact on my health, therefore I plan to find out. Info regarding this diet can be found here. I plan to follow it for 10 days and then start reintroducing foods to see my triggers for health issues, if any. The only problem I have with this plan is the use of several vitamins and minerals along with a fiber supplement. I am not planning to follow this part of the plan. I believe if we eat healthy, whole foods then we don't need to take supplements. I also question how well supplements are actually absorbed by the body; and finally I am not a fan of taking pills at all. I also do not plan to drink the fiber mixture before every meal. I would rather stick to an all natural plan.
Dinner tonight was a recipe from the detox book. I made the Green Goddess Broccoli and Arugula Soup with a salad (added chicken to the salad for protein). It was pretty good. I can eat that within a 10 day period :) Hubby had some as well although not as much as me, but he is taking it for lunch tomorrow :)
