I don’t do detox to lose weight. We know extreme diets do not work. You may lose up to 3 kgs over a 5-day regime but you end up “eating your frustration away” and put on even more weight. Nor do I detox for the popularly believed but scientifically unproven benefits on the body.
So why do I do detox? Firstly, I do it for the challenge, like running a marathon – to be able to say “yes I can”. I love the feeling of power over my cravings, that I am able to say no to the chocolate cake that is screaming “eat me“. Secondly, the detox makes me feel better in body and mind. Physically, I feel freshened and lighter, especially after the holiday season of excess.
It’s particularly hard on the first day. I feel weak and not up to doing any intensive physical activity like running. I even suffer light headaches. Oddly, I do not feel hungry, and when I do, I drink my juice or soup and I am fine. This is the first time I test Detox Delight “3 Juices & 2 Soup” program. I love this combination that includes a soup because I crave for at least one warm dish. I find most of the brand’s programs of freshly pressed juice and soups rather tasty (but I am not a huge fan of the green detox program). Their delivery system is great – I receive my juices & soups early in the morning.
If not for the supposed benefits, try a detox just for the experience. I recommend that you check out Detox Delight programs. They are also available in cities in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, The Netherlands and Dubai.
