Get your detox down-pat
If bh’s Deb and I have one thing in common (besides beauty of course!), it’s that we like our food. Okay, we love our food.
So when it comes to getting a health kick, it’s always straight to the treadmill for us, because we’ll be damned if we pass up that creamy pasta for lunch, or that piece of chocolate birthday cake that hangs around, all delicious-looking on the treats table at work.
But as the last silly season came to an end, it dawned on me that my body was in need of a bit more than exercise – I was in a dire need of a detox. I felt bloated and blocked up, and I needed a thorough cleanse, stat. Luckily, that happened to also be around the time when the people at Skinny Mini got in touch with me and I decided that I’d take part in a 5-day detox program – one that I could handle of course.
What’s great about this particular detox, is that it’s not just a three-juices-a-day-and-that’s-it kind of deal. You still get to eat proper food, but the juices involved are designed to help you digest the food (which is suggested for consumption in the accompanying guide book) and in turn, make you feel lighter and less bloated.
The juices came in powder form and had to be mixed with water, and my instructions were to drink one three times a day before each meal in order to make me feel fuller for longer, so i wouldn’t binge eat. And I have to say, the juices weren’t half bad – they smelled fruity and I didn’t mind drinking them at all. They weren’t nearly as bad as some of the other detox drinks you have to stomach in place of food! (I’m clearly not cut out for that!)
At the conclusion of the five days, I did indeed find I was eating less throughout the day, my grazing had almost come to a complete halt, and my bloated festive season feeling had vanished. I strongly recommend the Skinny Mini diet when you’re in need of a thorough cleansing and want to beat the bloat!
What kind of detox would you be willing to try?
