Post Cleanse Advice and When to Eat



Let's rename this cleanse the 19-Hour Liver Cleanse .. That's the point at which I thanked the Heavens I was on Weight Watchers, and didn't HAVE to experience any more quinoa-with-prunes torture, or kale mush juice.  Some say "yummy", I say "crummy".

I like that we tried something new.  I appreciate the cleanse for that purpose .. and there was one recipe that I didn't mind, and would drink again.

Pineapple, Lemon and Pomegranate Blend-Free Detox Drink:
If you don’t have a juicer to make the first drink, mix up this easy detox concoction with ready-made juices and cut with water.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 lemon
1 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
3 cups water

Directions:
Obviously, mix all together and pour. 

taken from Dr. Oz. 48-Hour Cleanse

I was never told by the doctor that I HAD to do a cleanse.  I voluntarily attempted this 48/19-hour task to feel better and challenge myself.  I had all the challenging I needed.

Dr. Oz states that he does this cleanse about 3 or 4 times a year, whenever he's feeling bloated.  Don't quote me on this, but I'll never do this one again.  No need.  My liver is 19 hours cleansed. 

If you have been contemplating a change in lifestyle and have a desire to try something new and different {and don't mind a giant bowl full of mushy quinoa and prunes}, feel free to try this cleanse.  Most of the post replies were positive.  I guess everyone has to try it themselves and come to their own conclusion.  I just wanted to share my experience.  Dr. Oz also says that he's never hungry on the cleanse.  I know I wasn't hungry because I didn't want to eat any of my food options, so I lied to myself and said I wasn't hungry.  Like I said, that only lasted 19 hours.

Happy 1/2 way healthy livers everyone!!

I can't wait to bake a delicious dessert ..

P.S.
Should you decide to do this cleanse, make sure no one nor anything is tempting you during .. including PINTEREST!!  Just shut off your computer and lay in a hammock.
