After running half marathon yesterday I thought I would reward myself with a two day fruit detox…… Go figure?!
I am not mad honnestly. I have been reading about the [intlink id=”72″ type=”post”]raw vegan diet�[/intlink]and have embraced it for the odd day here and there after which I have always felt good so it is time to try it for longer.
I definately didn’t want to change my diet while training for the run so Monday I started the first day of a 8 day “prove it to yourself” diet. If I feel good after 8 days I will continue.
Day 1-2 fruit days either one or two fruits each day with herbal teas.
Day 1 – apple day
Breakfast: apple juice
Lunch: 2 apples chopped with cinnamon & ginger
Snack: 2 apples chopped with cinnamon & ginger
Dinner: 2 apples grated with mint & lemon
Today I felt light & buzzy. I was hungry a couple of times but it passed quickly. I had brief headache at lunch time but it passed quickly. It was a good day, am loving it!
Day 2 – Pineapple day
Breakfast: chopped pineapple
Lunch: chopped pineapple
Snack: chopped pineapple
Dinner: galia melon
Snack: galia melon
Today has been really hard. I have had a headache all day, accompanied by hunger pangs and my tongue is really sore so I had to switch fruit mid day to melon. I am thinking about every kind of food but fruit that I can eat! Its a battle of wills, will I or wont I stay with the fruit???
Roll on tomorrow and proper food.
