Some of the foods I ate (days 1-3)

I started my Spring detox on April 14th, with the assistance of Chef and Health Coach, Carolyn Akens.

Today, I share with you how I did, during the first three days.

The first three days were rough, because I was fatigued and had low energy.  This is normal, but I thought that this shouldn’t be happening to me, but I guess I was wrong.

The number one reason why I was fatigued and had low energy was because I was not having bowel movements.  My elimination was very slow and things didn’t start moving until days two and three.

By day three, I had very good bowel movements and as a result of this, the fatigue went away and my energy level improved.

The big take home lesson is that we must have daily bowel movements.  If elimination is slow, then it can make you fatigued.

I am doing a Spring Detox program and the detox starts on April, 14, 2014.  It is a 14-day detox program and I am not going at this alone.  I am excited about doing this detox, because I have the guidance and support of a health coach.

I have done fasts, cleanses and detoxes in the past, but I have never had the guidance from another person.  This time around, I understand why I should detox and how I can detox without depriving myself.
