When I got to day 4 I was so sick of smoothies that I could not even drink another one after I forced the breakfast one down. Plus…I woke up at 4 AM and nearly lost my mind that I had another bad night of little sleep. I felt delusional all day and disoriented and dizzy. Finally at some point in the late morning I decided I had enough! This was way too insane for me. I basically blew the whole week without accomplishing anything. So I ordered Chinese food delivered and scarfed down sesame chicken, pork fried rice, steamed dumplings and two spring rolls. It tasted good.
The Bullet got packed up and I took it back to Kohl’s the following day. I actually had a sense of relief once I made the decision to stop the insanity. This sort of detox is not for everyone. I was told that many succeeded and that others dropped out. I just could not stand to drink another smoothie no matter what the promise. They were awful and I hated the texture of them. Blech! I think also the combination of a vegetable with a lot of fruits was a bit much for my system. I did not lose an ounce during that time but was told that if I stuck it out the weight would have come off and great things would have happened. I can’t even explain adequately how awful I felt. There are other ways of detoxing that does not put one in a warp speed downward spiral.
So now back to my normal life.
