I wish I could say I felt good but I don’t. I feel dreadful. Bloated, gassy and with a headache. Plus I am so tired I can’t believe I stayed awake all day.
Day 1 was a combination of shakes, water, broth, enzymes and probiotic supplements. That’s it. No food 😦
I had most of the shakes with orange or apple juice but I went mad at lunch time and picked a beetroot and chopped up an orange. Crazy!
Whizzed through my juicer (not blender as we can only have juices) it looked rather pretty.
Add 1 tbsp of the psyllium husk and bentonite clay powder
and whisk in to a thick, gloopy, gagtastic shake. Bleurgh.
I also had to drink plenty of water and take regular enzyme supplements.
I might have to go to bed in a minute so my grumpy irritable self can get some sleep!
About Lose Weight and Gain Health
Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health.
This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight.
I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

Good luck for the next few days while you do the detox. Keep telling yourself your will be amazed at the energy you will regain. The headaches are normal, especially after the sugar from the weekend. You did great Zöe. Especially after your Birthday weekend celebration. You stuck with it all day. Pat yourself on the back.
It was tough – today was easier 🙂
