I've already completed one of my 2013 goals- do a juice detox! I started the 3 day detox on Friday, so now I'm on the last day. Its been awesome! For this detox, I made veggie smoothies to drink all day. The smoothie for each day is different. The first one was apples, tomatoes, celery, carrots, cucumber, lemon, beets.
The next day I was in College Park. Being that I was 40 minutes away from home, I should have prepared a smoothie for the morning after I spent the night. My blood sugar was very low because I hadn't eaten any sugar the day before, and my body was definitely not used to it (I am a major sugar/carb-aholic.) I felt weak, shaky, and nauseous, so I ate some crackers. My stomach couldn't keep it down I got a bagel at the grocery store and ate half of it, slowly. That seemed to be what my body needed. When I got home, I made the day 2 smoothie: parsley, spinach, apples, cucumbers, and celery. Detox lesson learned: have the right foods on hand if you won't be home during the detox. Its OK to eat some carbs and sugar to help your body adjust to the difference.
