Just completed day 2 of body detox. Here are the results so far….
Day 1 lost 3.5 pounds
Day 2 lost 4.4 pounds
I’ve only exercised a few times for about 30 minutes.
The diet consists of supplemental drinks and eating fruits and vegetables. This diet has made me quickly realize how addicted I am to food. Sure we need food in order to survive but I now know that I quite often eat food for strictly pleasure. The taste of the food entices me to eat. It’s good to eat nice tasting foods but not in the quantities that I eat them and at the times that I do.
One thing that is really bothering me is my addiction to caffeine. I miss Dr. Pepper. This loss of caffeine has caused me to have a headache most of the day.
Anyway, I have five more days of hardcore detox before adding a few more type of foods. Even though i’m wrestling with my eating demons right now, I do know that i’m making progress.
Long term this has the potential to spring board myself back in to my running world. I know that I need to run at a much lighter weight. It’ll be quite a feat to get myself back in shape once my back allows me to run again. Life is quite a journey.
