Detox Diaries: My "Crazy, Sexy Diet"
Can a chai-obsessed, meat-loving writer become a green juice-drinking vegan for 21 days in order to detox her body? Find out
The power of a detox buddyIf you want to know the truth, there are a couple things that have kept me on track with this detox. The first is knowing that I have another appointment with Cahitas at the Murad Inclusive Health Spa after these 21 days are up. And because I'm writing about this experience, I'll be especially mortified if I actually gain weight, or if my skin reading is worse than my starting point. Turns out there's nothing like the threat of public embarrassment to bolster my willpower.
More impressive, however, has been the support from a detox buddy, my co-worker Sarah. She's following a similar, 21-day detox (read about her experience here) and we've been commiserating ("I'm hungry!"), whining ("Are we done yet?"), and celebrating ("I didn't cheat last night!") with each other every step of the way. The support has been helpful and much appreciated, and I highly recommend talking someone in your life into detoxing with you if you decide to bite the bullet and try a cleanse.
