Today Kerby and I started the 3-14 day detox for the M.D. Diet. First of all let me say this...I. WANT. ICE CREAM. Or a doughnut or a cookie or even just some of the dried bananas my kids are eating right now. Mmmmmm. Kerby was really excited to be able to eat all the meat he wants, but even he was wanting carbs and sugar halfway through the day.
Supposedly we're supposed to wake up tomorrow morning having lost some weight, I sure hope that's true. This detox is supposed to chemically adjust the body into a high metabolic burn, along with detoxifying the body by flushing out toxins and excess water storage.

Hopefully this gets easier, but hey I can handle it for a few days. Then I can start the regular diet and have a few more options of what to eat.
For this detox (here's a very short run down) you eat
*all the green veggies and salad you want (except peas),
*all the meat you want (except pork), 2 oranges (one as an a.m. snack and one as an afternoon snack), *2 eggs,
*1/4 tsp. of Morton's Lite salt and
*at least six 8 oz. glasses of water per day.
Season food with any seasoning as long as it doesn't contain sugar or salt. You may use olive oil and vinegar or a low calorie Italian salad dressing on your salads.
NO peas, bread, pasta, milk, cheese or condiments. NO fruit or fruit juices (except the 2 oranges). NO gravies or dressings (except olive oil and vinegar or a low calorie Italian salad dressing).

There's a bit more to it that don't really apply to me, if you want to try this let me know and I can get you a full copy of the paper. I really hope this helps, I'll let you know each day how it's going. Today I really wanted sugar and got tired of eating meat and veggies but I really believe it will be worth it! Thanks Carrie for the info and congrats on losing over 30 lbs so far doing it!
