My husband and I just finished doing the Dr. Oz 3 Day Detox. For those of you who aren't familiar, here's the skinny on it: there are three vitamin packed shakes that you drink (plus an extra of your favorite) a detox tea and detox bath you do for three days.
We (meaning me! ha!) wanted to do the detox after Thanksgiving to just cleanse, detox and reset internally. Also, to put a good foot forward going into the Holidays. Sometimes, I feel we eat so much on thanksgiving and before you know it, we have so many Holiday parties and food that we eat all December long it gets out of control!! So that was my reasoning behind the detox.
The Result: I do feel better, less sluggish, "lighter". There is something to be said about only eating pure heathy foods. You do feel better.
Would I do this particular detox again? Probably not.
Reason being, the lunch shake is really hard to drink. We had to force it down. Separately the items are great! Celery, good! Cucumber, good! Green Apple, good! Pineapple, good! Altogether? not good! I think the main issue with the lunch shake is that it is so thick.
They also claim you can do it for $16 dollars a day. Unless you have a lot of the items around the house already, its probably more like $20-30 dollars a day. I found almost everything during one shopping trip to Trader Joe's and they have pretty good prices too.
The amounts are a little off on the shopping list too, and you have to do some extra math for the extra snack shake. I ended up buying about three times the amount of Kale than I actually needed! (going to make Kale Chips with the extra).
Going forward...I would definitely drink the breakfast shake again and again!! It's really yummy and loaded with vitamins, good carbs and protein. It really fills you up too, but its not too heavy for the morning.
The Breakfast Shake Recipe:
1 cup of Water (chilled, purified)
1 cup of Raspberries
1 Tbsp. of Flax Seed
1/4 cup of Spinach (I used Baby Spinach)
1 Tbsp. of Almond Butter
2 Tsp. of Lemon (I used half of a lemon)
