Hey you! Yesterday was my last day on my 5 day detox plan which consisted of only eating fruits for 5 days suggested to me by my doctor. In I addition drink plenty of water, I juiced in the morning a recipe my doctor gave to me and I took herbal supplements my homeopathic doctor prescribed.
Am I glad it over? Yes, but to be honest it wouldnt bother me any if I had to keep going. I highly recommend doing something like this if even maybe for 3 days to get rid of junk in your body. Today as I break this I will eat fruits for breakfast and salad for lunch I was thinking of perhaps an egg but im not quite sure yet. I will eat a little chicken come Monday…today is Sunday, I dont want to completely shock my body!
It is important that a day before at least before the detox you eat lightly and things easy for your body to digest. Your body will transition better I believe. Drink plenty of water. The days before the detox are as important as the days after make sure youre not shocking your body by eating something terribly hard for your body to digest. Try to be aware of chewing your food give your tummy a hand =)
I am very excited to tell you I lost 8 pounds from this. Now please note I did NOT do this to lose weight! I did it because my Doctor suggested I did as I am starting a new part of my treatment.
Please also note that I am no expert nor do I claim to be. I am just a little housewife on the search of ultimate health.
Now that I did this I continue to eat non-processed foods, foods without hydrogenated oils, baked or grilled chicken and lots of fruits and veggies. I think the true secret to weight loss is eating what God intended us to anyways. Ive lost 40 pounds so far just by eating a clean non processed foods diet.
Thanks for reading
Have a Blessed week!
This is my third day in my 5 day fruit detox which my doctor recommended in order to strengthen my body and remove toxins from junk I ate during the holidays.
From what Ive read the hardest days are the first and second especially if you lead an unhealthy lifestyle. My cousins are doing it with me the worst theyve had is headaches and of coarse hunger. For me the first and second day have been rather easy but at night is when I begin to get hungry, thank goodness its bedtime =)
This morning I woke up with little energy and since im in Ecuador where its 90s all day long I woke up feeling rather hot today. I juice in the morning a juice that consist of a tomato, celery, parsley, carrots and fresh squeezed orange juice. After my juice I felt great! I am eating 5-10 fruits a day and drinking plenty of water. Taking my herbal supplements too. I feel real good and I am thankful that I only have 2 more days and so far so good I think I will do this again. I thank the Lord has tamed my hungry belly and this has become unusually easy for me. I thought it would be rather hard.
You definitely become more conscious of the many times you reach out for food because you think youre hungry when youre really not.
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall become one flesh."
Genesis 2:24 (KJV)
I dont think I fully understood how you truly become one flesh until March of last year.
I am in Ecuador again for a few months as a follow up to health concerns Ive been dealing with for the past two years. I miss my husband terribly I feel as if I cannot function. He is the fuel that keeps me going. He is my best friend and the man God chose for me to follow and submit to.
This is probably the 5th time I have come to Ecuador since my husband and I started our relationship. The first three times I came here we were still dating. The times I came before we got married I missed him but never like I do now. When you marry someone you truly become one in every sense of the word. It may be just me that feels this but I can no longer breath, walk, feel or think the same when I am without my better half…for he truly completes me. No matter how wonderful an experience may be its not the same without HIM.
I am so glad the Lord gave me the man I have for he loves the Lord which makes me love him even more. He has made me a better woman and a better christian by leading with his example. I wish I could explain the void I feel without him…maybe try tearing a limb off haha.
The Lord truly has made a wonderful perfect plan for each of us and call me old fashion and whatever you may please but I still believe one man and one woman by the grace of God can make it through anything. The Lord gives us the strength we need and perhaps the key to every happy marriage is just time on your knees, because if you ask, then God will surely answer.
I love my husband very much, but I know that no matter how big my love is for him, if we dont add God in the mix its sure to be a gamble if we make it. Theres the good times and those hard tough times and I know neither my husband or I are big enough or strong enough to solve them ourselves. I am glad I have my God to lean on and though right now I miss my husband terribly I know I have the Lords arms around me.
Whoever you are reading this I love you and God loves you…
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
1 John 4:8 (KJV)
Get to know him.
Distance never separates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad, because I miss you, I remind myself how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss.- I love you Chris and thank you for loving me!
