It’s day 3 of my Dr. Oz 3-Day Detox and I feel fantastic, completely cleared out and full of energy.
Usually I like to do my 5-7 day Whole Foods Spring Cleanse but this year I thought I’d try something different, a juice fast. It’s only 3 days-how hard could that be?
The first day I did not feel so good. I was having withdrawal symptoms coming off of caffeine and sugar which, for me, manifested in the form of a headache. I was tired, irritable, depressed and had an overall flu-like feeling. Yuck! My body was detoxing. I KNOW better and would suggest to anyone who wants to do a cleanse, it is best to wean yourself off of caffeine a few days before going cold turkey. That way you will avoid major withdrawal symptoms. I didn’t realize how much caffeine and sugar I actually was ingesting on a daily basis from my multiple cups of green tea and from, I admit, my weakness, which is baked goods and chocolate. Oh, denial is a beautiful thing, isn’t it?!
