Drastic Measures

Aspargus Day: Detox Day Four

I may never eat asparagus again after today. It's simply not meant to be eaten plain and all day long. I have to say this was not my favorite day in the 7-day detox program. I was blurry all morning, hungry in the afternoon and I'm impatient this evening. Then, I'll go to bed.

I was pleasantly surprised that I did not have an asparaGAS problem. Most people were telling me that I would be passing smelly gas. I am way too much of a lady for that to happen!

Dr Keith Smigiel (McDreamy) spoke to me today and gave me some good recipes to try after the seven day period is over. I was thinking of a big cheeseburger and an ice cold beer, but I didn't see that meal on the list. It is so nice that he keeps such a close eye on my progress.

I look forward to more crazy dreams tonight. Last night I met a juggler and a opera singer while dining at Bones (a restaurant in Atlanta, GA that I went to once about 9 years ago).

Three days to go, but who's counting!

Good job on the detox! There are some good detox smoothie recipes on the Pilates Cafe page. http://www.thepilateslounge.com/Pilates_Cafe.html
Keep up the good work!

You're doing great if you made it this far! I ate a lot of asparagus on the last hard core diet I did and I still can't stand the stuff now.

My 64 year old Italian mother who has never skipped a meal in her life was forced into a cleanse back in January. She simply could not understand why she could not have her black coffee in the am and her Vodka in the evenings. She did it and felt fantastic after. Thats what she gets when she visits her son for 2 months from NY, a small price to pay to stay away from 17 degree weather. You're doing great Beth!

I gave up beer and chocolat for Lent and thought I was making a great sacrafice. I commend you for your efforts; an even greater sacrafice!
I think next year I will give up beer and chocolat again, but add a daily dose of self flagilation. Even then it won't come close to what you are doing. Good going!
