Well, kind of. ****update below!
I’ve spent three weeks on holiday in America and then come back and pretty much lived on barbeques during the two weeks since that, and now I’m starting to feel a bit rubbish, bloated, low on energy and just generally unhealthy. So this week, I’m going to eat well. I’m not going to the extremes of a detox, simply because I am a really fussy eater, and I don’t really like a lot of the really really healthy foods that would provide me with a pinterest-style detox. As a result, my main aims are to eat my five portions of fruit and veg a day at least, to cut out caffeine and alcohol (an exception in the latter may be made if England get to the world cup final, but let’s not jinx it), to cut out all unnatural sugar, carbs like chips and white bread and to drink the recommended 2 litres of water a day. Doesn’t sound like a lot, but for me it’s going to be tough to eat salads for lunch when I don’t like any salad items other than lettuce, not have my morning coffee and refrain from having any sweet treats that may be brought into my office.
But I can do this! I’m going to post every day about what I’ve eaten and drank and howbis doing and feeling, for my own benefit mainly. However, if you’re interested, please do follow my week-long attempt at being actually being healthy!
Have you tried a detox, and do you have any tips? What foods did you cut out or what foods did you enjoy that were healthy? Let me know in the comments below!
Thanks for reading!
UPDATE: I managed four days of this detox week and ended up ordering a bit fat Chinese takeaway. I’m not even sorry.
