How to Survive 16-Hour Days in Stilettos

This detox kit comes with three kinds of powders: an a.m. detox made mostly of fruit extracts, powdered greens, and a hefty packet of protein powder. I taste-tested the three powders and decided that I wouldn't be able to stomach a grape-flavored detox every morning, so I concocted my own breakfast shake made out of a little of each powder, some almond milk, and ice. (I know, I know, this is not how the detox is supposed to be done.) Then, for lunch and dinner I followed Kirsch's food protocol: lots of greens and veggies and a small portion of lean protein (usually chicken or salmon).
After five days, I was bored senseless chugging this concoction, but I felt fantastic -- de-puffed, slimmer, and energetic. (Full disclosure: I never gave up my morning coffee, which may have helped on the energy front.)
