Detox Details!

Justin and I have been trying to lose weight for a little over two months. I had a baby 8 months ago, so I needed to lose plus we both wanted to just be healthier. We have had great results, with both of us losing about 30 pounds! A couple weeks ago Justin had a brilliant idea (well it was brilliant in his mind NOT mine!) He had found a Detox online and everyone was claiming to have had great results from it. He told me all about it and even though I was not thrilled about the idea I knew if I didn't do it and he had great results I would have been mad at myself. Turns out seven days of not so fun eating gave both of us GREAT results! Justin lost almost 11 pounds, 3 inches in his chest and 2 inches around his hips. I lost 8 pounds and 3 inches around my hips!! It made it so worth it.

Want the Detox Details... Here it goes:

Vegetables to choose from: artichoke, asparagus, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, green beans, mushrooms,onions, peppers, spinach, squash, tomato. These can be eaten raw, steamed, or in a big salad drizzled with a little olive oil and/or balsamic vinegar.
*I personally think the balsamic vinegar is so gross, I wouldn't recommend using that. We steamed out veggies for most of our meals and found out that was a lot yummier!

DAY 1: At 8am, noon, 4pm, and 8pm eat as much of any vegetable as you want, in any combination. You don’t have to eat at those exact times, but spread out the four meals as evenly as possible. Drink 100 ounces of water.

DAYS 2-4: Eat vegetables at the same four times each day but add in 20 grams of protein from fish, chicken, lean beef, turkey, eggs or seafood at 8am and 4pm meals. This equates to 3-4 ounces of fish, chicken, lean beef, turkey, or seafood or 3-4 whole eggs at those two meals. Drink 100 ounces of water.

DAYS 5-7: At 8am, noon, 4pm, and 8pm eat vegetables in any combination and quantity and have 20 grams of protein (3-4 ounces) from fish, chicken, lean beef, turkey, seafood or 3-4 eggs at each meal. Drink 100 ounces of water.

*Make sure you weigh and measure yourself before starting the Detox.

Later this week I will be letting you know what else we have been doing to loose our weight. If you have anything you want to know about our diet leave a comment and let me know and I would be happy to tell you!

Thanks for stopping by as always I would love to see some comments or feedback!

P.S. If you try this Detox you will not want to look at this picture for atleast a week after (you get a little sick of Veggies!)
XOXO Brooke

  6. Hey Brooke, do you think it would be ok to do this while breastfeeding? if not, what would u recommend?

    1. No I wouldn't do the detox while you're breastfeeding, you and your baby need more nutrients then this gives. While I was breastfeeding I was still eating healthy (lots of fruits and veggies) that alone will help you start losing until you are able to try out this detox. Thanks!

    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
