Dee's 21 Day Detox Programme 

When you talk about detox, people get fearful that they will starve and have very little to choose from. No it is not like that and does not have to be. This elimination plan  is based on what our ancestors used to eat before the agricultural and industrial revolution. The era when food came from nature, berries to pick from trees, animals to hunt, fishing, collecting honey and digging for root vegetables. Does this give you some sort of assurance?

 Let us see what you will eat for 21 days. It is easy! On the site there are a variety of recipes  you can pick and choose. My desire is for you to have honorship and control over your meal preparation, your journey and health. Hence I have refrained in detecting on what you should be eating exactly for 21 days. Being on a regimental diet works for a couple of days then falls off and dies a natural death because maybe you do not enjoy the particular food. I will give you a list of what you can have for breakfast, lunch and dinner then you can pick, make your choice and enjoy your meals

  • Once you have eliminated refined and dense carbohydrates and fruits from your diet, you transition from being a carb burner to a fat burner.

  • Which is good but challenging as the body  is now devoid of its usual carbohydrates to spike sugars  and trigger release of insulin the anabolic (building) hormone.

  • Hunger pangs and cravings will haunt you as the body is used to functioning on running on high levels of insulin.

  • The first 7 days are withdrawal symptoms.

  • These vary from mild to severe depending on the general state of your health, your diet and lifestyle


DAY 1:

  • Usually easy and comfortable day


Day 2 - 4:  

  • A bit challenging because of the sugar withdrawal.
