What Happens After the 30 Day Detox?

Sorry, if you have been patiently waiting for an update on my last consultation with Trisha Stewart and what the outcome of having done the 30 Day Detox is. Work got a little hectic over the past week and I just didn’t have time to post. Well, I maintained the detox completely up until seeing…

30 Day Detox: Toughest Week Yet!

It’s funny that my final week of the 30 Day Detox should turn out to be my toughest.  There are a variety of reasons for this: work was stessful (a time when I want comfort and quick and easy food) things went wrong (as they are known to do in life, and my usual reaction…

30 Day Detox: Vegan Diet Plan

I thought it would be useful to explain some of the concepts behind the 30 Day Detox I am doing. The first concept is the Vegan Diet Plan that is essential for the detox and which Trisha Stewart recommends following beyond the detox too. Here are just a few of the benefits of a Vegan…

A Bit More on My Reasons for the 30 Day Detox

Some people have asked me to blog a bit more about my 30 Day Detox and why I am doing it. The best way to learn what I am doing here is to visit Trisha Stewart’s website for a greater explanation and buy her Healthy Tart book. This talks a lot about good nutrition and…

30 Day Detox: My Pre Detox Weight and Photo

I’m going to do something I’ve never done before….I’m going to admit to my weight. I NEVER share my weight with anyone and rarely have in the past (doctors, nurses and Weightwatcher leaders are the exceptions). Even my closest friends don’t know my weight. But, Trisha Stewart asked me to take a Before Photo, and…

30 Day Detox: End of Week 2

I last left this tale on Day 9 of the 30 Day Detox where I had survived the weekend of temptation. The rest of week 2 has been pretty easy in comparison. I’ve had some cravings for coffee and ice cream (weird, as I’m not a big fan of ice cream usually) but only minor…

30 Day Detox: Day 7 – 9 – A Weekend of Temptation

I knew that Days 7 to 9 were going to be tough in terms of temptation. Traditionally in my workplace Friday is known as Chip Friday (a phrase I actually coined) because we usually buy-in Fish and Chips or some other takeaway and all eat together. It’s more a chance for us to see each other…

30 Day Detox: Day 4-6 – Minor Cravings and Food Variety

It’s been a crazy old week. On Day 4, I was still wiped put from my “cold” (I think it was some virus now, not a cold). I spent all morning in bed and then felt much better in the afternoon. I still had a niggling headache and couldn’t focus on anything, but I started…

30 Day Detox: Day 3 – My Co-workers Suck!

I woke up full of beans on Day 3 of my 30 Day Detox and started my day with my pint of hot water with lemon and lime, followed by some porridge made with water and with stewed apple and pear added, plus some seeds sprinkled on top. During the detox, dairy products are not…

30 Day Detox: Day 2

My cold seems to be clearing fairly quickly, but I still haven’t been feeling too good today. I spent most of the morning sleeping and then had a serious need to replenish some fluids so have drunk a lot of water, as well as plenty of hot water with lemon, lime and ginger. I’ve also…
