Detox Diaries: My Three-Day "Fruit Flush"
Is three days enough time to cleanse the body for clearer skin and a smaller number on the scale? Follow one woman determined to find out
Time to "re-tox"?The day of my final checkup with Murad (one day after my last cleansing day), I was feeling crazy high from my results. My co-workers, still in the beginning phases of their intense detox plans, were pumped to see that I had stuck to it, not cheated once (OK, so it was only three days), and that I had an awesome outcome.
This also happened to be the day of our company-wide BBQ where there were sure to be burgers, chips, and buckets of beer. I walked in, couldn't care less about the food (funny how losing six pounds can do that to you), and had a fantastic time. All the jokes that had been made during the three days of detox about the foods I would eat when "re-tox" commenced weren't that funny anymore as now I really wanted to keep the weight off. And now, one month later, I have. I'm also about to embark on an intense 30-day exercise plan, something I know I would not have been as open to before this experience.
So I'm a believer -- in three-day detox plans that is.
Twenty-one days? Not so much.
