  • Dare #6: Do a 21 Day Detox

    Posted on April 29th, 2012 Sonia No comments

    The Dare:  Follow Dr. Joshi’s Holistic Detox for 21 days…and blog about it daily (will be blogged about at http://365daysofhealthy.com/)

    The Darer:  Me

    Current Status:  Accepted, not yet performed.

    Estimated Implementation of Dare: Start date – May 1, 2012.

    The Details:  I’m feeling sluggish and tired and need a kickstart to my plan of summer healthy living.  So I’ve decided to do Dr. Joshi’s detox.  Now I’ve done this before.  I’ve done it for 10 days, and the second time I lasted the full 21 days, with great results in energy (more about past attemtps here).  I haven’t been able to do it since, so I’m daring myself to try again…and to blog about it everyday, for 21 days.  Along with my pilates groupon that starts in May and the new (used) road bike I bought today, May should be a good kickstart month 🙂

    The top 10 detox rules are:

    1. No red meat
    2. No dairy produce (except for natural yoghurt)
    3. No fruit (except ripe bananas)
    4. No wheat, gluten, yeast
    5. No alcohol – (this is the easiest since I don’t drink)
    6. No biscuits, cakes, doughnuts
    7. No jams/spreads (except honey)
    8. No coffee, decaf or regular, and no tea
    9. No sugar, chocolate or sweets
    10.  No artificially produced flavorings: ketchup, vinegar, mustard etc
