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…

30 Day Detox: Day 1 – I Got a Cold!

It wasn’t the most auspicious  start to my 30 day detox. Yesterday I could feel myself coming down with a cold so when I woke up this morning I felt pretty ropey. My day has been filled with sleeping, and drinking lots of fluids – namely water, herbal teas and hot water infused with lemon, lime…

Why the 30 Day Detox?

This week I went for my first consultation with Trisha Stewart, a nutritionist and natural health practitioner. She is also the author of the Healthy Tart series of books. I’ll be blogging more about what the consultation involved and the results. One of the things Trisha recommends for everyone is a 30 day detox. Before…

PCOS and Pregnancy

Many women only learn they have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome when they are trying to get pregnant and are having problems conceiving. Maybe that is why you’re here trying to find out more about PCOS and pregnancy? The reason that women with PCOS sometimes experience problems becoming pregnant is because they don’t always ovulate regularly. If…
