The Detox, Day 2: I'm Tired and It Shows

With change, there comes an adjustment period, no? And I do believe that this is what's happening to me. As I adapt to a lighter diet, free of sweets, alcohol, and excess anything (except salad), today I am feeling hungry, weary, and a bit unfocused. Thus far, the only beauty-related thing that's changed is my hair, and sadly, it's not because it's miraculously become full of luster and enviable body. I merely got a six-week trim from my stylist.

As I mentioned before, I don't expect colossal changes during my five-day detox, but I've got to believe that my energy will pick up soon, and I've got to believe that this case of delirium is just a slight bump in the road called detox. About the post-holiday jean snugness factor? Happily, and much to my surprise, I no longer feel like I've been stuffed into my favorite dungarees. Stay tuned for day three . . .

It's amazing what our bodies can adjust to. You're definitely going to feel a sudden change when you subtract foods and beverages you're used to consuming. So don't be discouraged. Eliminating sweets and junk in general can only be helpful to your health. Just be safe. Good luck!

I agree with Shebelle. I did a detox diet earlier this year and I felt horrible. Hopefully the David Kirsh diet has more calories and substance than the diet I did. In general, I feel healthier when I juice more, drink more water and eat cleaner. I am stopping short term plans for good. It's all about making changes for the rest of your life.

I did a vegan, no-processed food, no sugar, no caff, detox last year - for one week and I had absolutely no energy the whole time. I was to tired to work out (one day I was able to force myself to go on a long walk, otherwise it was even difficult for me to leave the house) and after a few days I even got really depressed. So all I can say is that's not for me. It gives me great admiration for vegans though! This year I changed the way I eat - no more processed foods, lot's of veggies but if I want something with sugar in it, I can have it. I use as much olive oil as I want. I only eat organic, mostly locally grown and rarely eat meat - if I do just from free running, grass eating animals. I do still eat eggs and drink milk but only from well-treated animals. This has worked really well for me. I am healthier than I have been in a long time, I eat really delicious food, I have energy and I even lost some weight.

I am on a cleanse for my skin too. I have tried many different types of cleanses but the best one I have found is the candida cleanse (with bentonite, psyillum fibre, and caproil.... ohhh and plenty of acidophilus). It always clears my skin. I am also doing the acne free diet from Fran Kerr on It's awesome. I am finally getting the skin I should have in my twenties! About Time!

I've been hearing some terrible things about detox in general lately. That it is not really good for you at all. Kudo's to being strong enough to do it, just look into the real health benefits.

don't worry-- your body is just suffering withdrawal from the toxins/preservatives (which says a lot about what you can find in most food these days-- yikes)! that happened to me when i first became a mostly- raw food vegan. once you get past that stage, your energy levels will go up, and you just might not want to go back to how you ate before!

Don't give up! Remember to drink a ton of water. That always helps my energy levels when I'm eating clean.
