The Detox, Day 4: Everything's Illuminated

It's day four of my five-day detox, and while I have to admit that my stomach's still adjusting to consuming smaller portions, I'm not feeling nearly as hungry as I did on that awful second day. But, I do have a confession . . . I cheated. (And that's how I'm going to explain my oddly sinister expression in this photo.) You see, a tub of hummus was calling my name, and I lost all control on a midnight trip to the fridge. Minor blip in the radar aside, I do have some very positive things to report. Find out what they are when you read more.

While that blasphemous forehead acne seems to be getting worse, as mentioned before, it's been apparent that my chin acne has improved. I've also noticed that even though I've been drinking more water and herbal tea, the latter which I have been really enjoying since it's kind of like a sweet fix without the guilt, I'm not having to run to the restroom as often. TMI?

Well, since I'm sharing so much already, I've got another something else to disclose, and it's that a saltwater flush might help alleviate any other issues that might go along with changing your eating habits, my friends. And as my body has adapted to these new eating habits, I'm feeling lighter, my thoughts are clearer and more cohesive, I've actually started seeing things in a different light, and your kind words support have made it all the more worth it. It might sound cliché, but everything is really more illuminated.

If you are craving hummus but want to stick to your detox I have the perfect replacement. It's zucchini hummus. I got the recipe from this site Just make sure you add garlic (it doesn't call for it in the recipe). When I was on a raw food detox this was my go to snack. Good Luck!

Have you considered that your forehead acne might be related to your hair product? Either the shampoo or product you use might be irritating your forehead. As your chin is clearing up, it may be that the stuff up there is caused by external issues.

Ha, janetmouse! I did actually eat it with a spoon it was just so good. Crystalm07, if you do a saltwater flush, I suggest doing it at night, when you know you aren't going to be leaving the house. To be safe, give yourself at least three hours, and don't do it on a full stomach, either. Hope that helps!

While your sharing, how long should you plan on not leaving home if going to do a saltwater flush?
