I posted about the first 2 days of my Kaeng Reang 3-day healthy detox earlier in the week. I started the week out by drinking the smoothies in my Ringo Starr glass – I have a collection of Beatles glasses that I LOVE. Please check out the first post (it’s a quick read. go ahead, we’ll be right here when you get back).
Note that Ringo’s face is a big solemn and not entirely cheery. So, I woke up day 3 and realized I needed to switch over to George Harrison, because he looks so happy. I drank my smoothies out of George all that last day and we did good!
Post-detox observations . . .
1. The Kaeng Raeng program encourages you to use a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, so I noticed I was overrun with compost food scraps after three days!
2. I lost 4 pounds! Yea!
3. I felt very energized, clear-headed and generally good.
4. I really didn’t want to eat anything and break the spell and decided to drink tea and a lot of water to continue to flush out anything that was stirred up by the detox.
6. The Beatles always help.
7. The people close to me that knew I was doing this were VERY supportive and encouraging – special props to the husband (Wayne Bouchard), who stayed out and ate all of his meals out for 3 days and didn’t take it personally when I was VERY grumpy on day 1!
I used to do some type of natural detox every few months and have gotten away from doing it. I think I need to make this a more regular practice. I’ll keep you posted on that one!
eat. blog. be merry!
