So i quit drinking, well...quit getting drunk about 6 weeks ago, prior to which i was shitty ever single night of my life.
...I still have the occasional light beer. And i've actually been gaining weight as a result.
That's a common occurrence!
... And lately I have been living off of clove cigarettes and ramen noodles. And i feel like crap! Surprise!
I remember those clove cigs! Didn't know they were even still around
. Yea, ramen will make you feel like crap
I have been thinking of doing a detox like the master cleanse but I am not sure it would be compatible with the nature of my job. I'm stuck on a truck for two hours at a time with no bathroom access. And if i'm not on a truck, its a long walk to the nearest one. My previous experiences with salt water flushing and herbal laxitive tea have been pretty brutal. I wish I could really up my intake of fresh fruits and veggies but financially thats not an option.
Best detox is to go whole, fresh foods (as much raw as you can, even better) with a good amount of water. The advantage gained from eating whole, fresh outweighs the disadvantage of buying everything conventional and non-organic -- by far! Just wash them well.
Best diet to live on is -- vegan, of course -- but making Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live guidelines your lifestyle is optimal. Vegetable based (as opposed to starch/grain based diets); fruit; nuts/seeds; and then
starches/grains in small amounts is it in a nutshell.
Also, add some Green Smoothies
daily (my third post down describes them) for a boost in your nutritional intake whether you do anything else at all!
I might just try the master cleanse and if i shit my pants at work, at least i'll get the rest of the day off.
I, personally, think cleanses (and colonics, etc.) should be done on very rare occasions, if and when a qualified doctor recommends them; and only done under a doctor's supervision. One thing, though, you can do right now to help "clean you out quickly" is eat *fresh* fruit for your daytime intake and have your heavier meal for dinner, if desired; or eat fruit all day. Best fruits are melons for this; but any will do. Drink water as needed.
Another thing is taking some lemon juice (fresh) in some water for the morning, waiting at least 30 minutes before consuming your first meal. This is supposed to help with "cleansing," appetite, and digestion.
Hope you're doing well! And how about giving up the cigs?
