My 7 Day Detox with Easy Detox

IMG 1129 result

I was given the opportunity to try out Easy Detox 7 day plan i accepted as I was curious as I had never done anything like that before. When i told my friends and colleagues I was doing a 7-day detox most of them remarked ‘are you crazy?’, ‘You don’t need to lose weight’, ‘why?’ ‘Don’t you eat healthily anyway?’ and more.

Although i do eat healthily and don’t have ‘I can’t live without’ foods it was the thought of giving up the few foods I like to eat on a weekly basis, that was a struggle in my mind.

The process for the detox was to take 1 sachet of powder 3 times a day, morning afternoon and evening with coconut water, smoothies or sugar free juice. Depending on what you are trying to achieve you can stick to just that or find light healthy balanced meals on the Easy Detox website. I had read in some previous reviews that people had lost weight in 3 days, sounds amazing but I was not looking to lose weight, just to cleanse my body of any toxins and see what difference it made.

Foods I had to avoid

Salt, sugar, sweeteners, meat, dairy, gluten, alcohol, caffeine, fried foods

The Detox

Day 1 - I mixed up the powder as suggested and ate a mainly bean or salad diet which I will give you at the end and drank lots and lots of water and exercise which is recommended.

Day 2 – I repeated the process with a similar diet with lots and lots of water and exercise and again no noticeable change.

Day 3 - I repeated the process and noticed my stomach was beginning to bloat and i was starting to feel very uncomfortable.

Day 4 - I repeated the process, my stomach was still bloated bloat even more and that uncomfortable feeling was getting worse.

At this stage i was wondering if I should stop as knowing my body well I know that it reacts in a negative way to any change slight change in diet or environment. So, i deliberated whether i should continue or not and how long would the bloating last and could i cope with this feeling any longer. However, i’m not a quitter so I decided to continue.

Day 5 – My body was beginning to get used to the change in diet and the detox but i was not feeling good at all and although the bloating was going down it was not as quickly as I had hoped but as i only had 2 days to go i struggled on.

Day 6 - by day 6  was feeling a little better and quite happy as i knew i only had one day to go.

Day 7 – To be honest this day could not have come quick enough for me. I was quite happy knowing I would not have to repeat the process again.

The Diet

It can be difficult to know what to eat but on th esite their are recipies to help create some healthy alternative meals. I decided to opt for a variety of Beans, pulses, vegetables, roasted veg, salad, potatoes, quorn, natural yogurt, smoothies (as most fruit in its natural state makes me feel sick), coconut water, water.

Pros: no obvious side effect from cutting out things in my diet and this was because of the natural ingredients included in the detox to counteract that. The detox was pleasant. My water intake increased and i am still drinking lots of it.

Two week on, my skin is not as dry and flaky as it is normally and feels quite smooth.

Cons: uncomfortable bloated stomach, unable to go to the toilet regularly and bouts of nausea which lasted another week, after i had finished the detox.

Would I do another detox like this? NO! I decided that although the detox was tasty and there were some noticeable it was not for me. I am a fairly healthy person, i exercise as and when i need to and have no excessive eating habits or addictions to caffeine, sugar or other so that may be the reason it did not work for me and i did not see much change.

For anyone wanting to try this and who is a newbie to detoxes and diets like me I would suggest maybe the three day detox first to see how your body reacts.

Thank you Easy Detox for the experience.

CB12 For Fresh Breath

cb12 range 1

I was sent a few products from CB12 to try. The package contained three mouthwashes, which were the CB12 mild, CB12 white and CB12 original. I was also sent the CB12 spray for pleasant breath on the go and the CB12 chewing gum. The CB12 original has a fresh taste to it and leaves your breath smelling fresh for hours while the CB12 mild has a mild mint taste to it and keeps your breath fresh throughout the day.

The CB12 white has a peppermint taste, which is strong and long lasting. The CB12 white whitens your teeth after you have been using it for two weeks. It removes all the stains that have been caused by coffee, tea, red wine and nicotine.

As I happen to be a smoker at the moment it is a great help, so until I quit which will be in the near future I will continue to use CB12 white. The CB12 spray and gum is great for when you are out and about and need to freshen your breath. I take my spray everywhere with me.

A CB12 product gives you12 hours of protection. That is 12 hours of fresh breath, you can speak to anyone with confidence once you have used CB12. Studies have shown that CB12 is more efficient than other mouthwashes.

If you have not tried it I suggest you give it a go and get fresh breath in time for Summer. It will be a good investment. Prices range from £2-£30 and I would say that every product is worth the money if you too want to have fresh breath. Do not be a person that has to cover their mouths while having a conversation.
