The beginning of the end of the baby weight!

Starting tomorrow Buck and I begin our 21 day detox diet.  We are loosely following the Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet (mvdietdetox.com) that claims you can lose 21 pounds in 21 days.  We are skeptical, yet hopeful.  Either way, it will be a drastic change in the way we have been eating.  Here is our “food” schedule:

8AM

Inner Cleanse Daytime Formula- per container directions

8AM

1 oz of liquid Berry or 1 oz of liquid Berry with 6oz of water
1 Digestive Enzymes—purchase at health food store
One cup [1] of hot/iced Herbal Tea—(add stevia optional)
1 8oz glass of water [2]

9AM

1 8oz glass of water

10AM

1 8oz glass of water mixed or blended with 1 scoop of Essential Greens

11AM

1 8oz glass of water and or hot/iced herbal tea

12PM

1 8oz glass of “live” fresh juiced vegetables
If you’re not juicing -mix or blend 8oz of water with 1 scoop of VegeSplash
Fresh juiced vegetables are highly recommended
1 Digestive Enzyme

1PM

1 8oz glass of water and or hot/iced herbal tea

2PM

1 8oz glass of water mixed or blended with 1 scoop of VegeSplash

3PM

1 8oz glass of water and or hot/iced herbal tea

4PM

1 8oz glass of water mixed or blended with 1 scoop of Essential Greens

5-6PM

1 cup of homemade [3] puree soup
One cup of broth from soup mix
(Add braggs amino acid optional—purchase at health food store)
1 Digestive Enzyme
1 8oz glass of water
1 hot herbal tea

7PM

1oz of Aloe –optional—purchase at health food store
1 8oz glass of water and/or hot herbal tea.

7PM

Inner Cleanse Nighttime Formula- per container directions

8PM

1 teaspoon of CALM mixed with 6oz of hot water (purchase at health food store)
Optional if you have a hard time sleeping

The plan also calls for colonics and enemas…yuk!  Those will not be happening, because frankly, that is gross.  We have also modified the diet to fit us.  We are not “juicing” because we do not have a juicer and are not going to make our own soups every night.  We bought organic veggie juice, organic green juice, and organic veggie soups.  Yum.

We had our last meal this evening.  We ate at Applebee’s, not our favorite, but it worked.  We had pizza last night and have definitely been gearing up for this detox!

Oh, and also, we are not interested in hearing any negative comments regarding our detox (e.g. “this won’t work,” “this isn’t safe or healthy,” etc.)  Just sit back and observe.  If we lose 1 pound, congratulate us.  If we lose 5 pounds, congratulate us.  If we lose 21 pounds, congratulate us.

We start tomorrow; we will try to post every day regarding how we are doing.  Cheer us on through the 21 days!
