Get Right Detox: Day 2

Standard

eating wellHello, friends! I hope Day 1 of the detox is going well for you.. Hopefully you’re finding that replacing salt with lemon, extra virgin olive oil and other salt-free seasonings wasn’t so bad. If that light bulb hasn’t gone off for you yet, don’t worry because practice makes permanent. As you noticed, today was a low calorie  day and to balance that you should have kept your exercise activity at a low intensity as well to avoid feeling run-down. In Day 2 we will continue to use the seasonings listed in lieu of salt above but we will include some “energy foods” so that we can increase our activity level if we choose. Don’t worry, even natural foods contain some sodium so you will maintain your intake. We are more focused on reducing our table salt consumption. Remember to EAT EVERY 2-3 HOURS, take a multivitamin, and keep the fluids ( green tea, water or Crustal Light) handy.
