Hey folks!
 I'm about to start a 21 day Eat Clean diet detox. 
Yes, really! 
Do you know what that means?
  • No sugar
  • No flour
  • No processed foods
  • No cola
  • No red meat
Basically not eating the way I'm used to. 
I'm not that bad. 
But I did want to try eating raw again. I tried it a couple of years back and it made me feel amazing. It's hard to keep it up with the busy lives we live. 
If I had more willpower, I think I can do it. 
My diet detox will consist of having fresh fruit and veggies throughout the day, more veggies than fruit. Some nuts. 
And one proper meal which can include chicken or fish. 
I'll probably do quinoa, chicken/fish, and sweet potato or avocado. 
Along with my daily vitamins (advised to me by my natruopathic doc)
You guys already know this, but I'm no doctor ;) 
So please do not follow this without consulting your physician or nutritionist first. 

Here are a couple of websites that might be helpful to you:

  1. Iman,
    How wonderful that you are going to feel! My dear friend over at Art House Design began her raw journey and she radiates positive energy and light.
    I love trying to eat as much raw as I can and also as much color, fruits, veggies and pure water. My skin always feels so much cleaner.
    best-

  2. Iman, someday you should write a book where you review all the diets you have been on and rate which ones are better than the others. But keep one thing in mind. My sage brother gave me this advice. Your diet is what you eat on a regular basis. If you have to force yourself to make changes, they aren't going to work because you don't really have the motivation to stay on that rigid diet. Better to eat the bad stuff in moderation, exercise, and eat a healthy, well-balanced died. Sugar is not your enemy! Flour is not bad, unless you are allergic to it. Soda is very bad for you. Meat is okay, in moderation. Very rigid diets are doomed to fail. Don't go overboard!!

    1. Hey Kathy! {LoL} Seriousl! But you're totally right and I agree with you. What this should be titled is 'detox' which is good for you every now and then ;) I'll edit the wording a bit. For me flour and dairy are bad, stupid intolerance :(
      let's see how I do ;)
