Day 10 Of Detox...My Detox Is Over...I Did It!!!

Hi everyone!!! Day 10 of my detox is over!!! I did it!!! I set a goal for myself, I stuck through it, and I completed it!!! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! I'm so proud of myself and I feel absolutely GREAT!!! My skin and nails look great! No swollen ankles!!! I just feel HEALTHY...looking forward to starting a healthy way of eating, once again, and sticking with it this time...that's another one of my goals!!!

Ok..I know many of you are anxious to know how many pounds I lost during the detox.

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lost 11 pounds total during the 10 day detox...that averages about 1 pound a day!!! YAY...what a way to jump start my weight loss and fitness journey this second time around!!!

My body is not quite ready to dive into my new, healthy way of eating just yet. I have to go through an Ease-Out period for 2 days. If you immediately start eating solid foods after the detox, you risk constipation and stomach cramps. The first day (tomorrow) will involve consuming orange juice and broth. The second day (Friday), I will still consume orange juice, but I can start eating light soups and/or stews. Once the Ease-Out is completed, I will begin my new, healthy way of eating!

I guess you're wondering why I have the photo of cayenne pepper displayed. is for a very good reason! I plan to incorporate cayenne pepper into my daily diet.

Cayenne pepper can help boost your metabolism.

* Cayenne Pepper Moves blood. Hence it increases your circulation. This herb moves blood faster than any other herb out there (maybe even faster then most fat burners).
* This herb has the ability to speed up circulation within seconds of ingesting it.
* It has the ability to stimulate and accelerate your metabolism which in turn provides energy and weight loss.

I will more than likely consume the cayenne pepper by adding it to the lemon water I drink...for 8 ounces of lemon water add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. No maple syrup will be added as in the case of the lemon cayenne detox drink. Maple syrup was added for the detox drink to act as food and a source of energy during detoxification. I will be eating food, therefore, there is no need for the maple syrup. I'm not much of a water drinker, so drinking lemon water spiced with a little cayenne pepper will help me with my water consumption. You may opt to take cayenne pepper capsules twice a day instead.
