Detox: Day 2
Nope, nope, nope. This is my breaking point. At about noon today, I gave up on cutting out coffee completely. Keeping in mind I’ve never detoxed before, well, one precious (and little known) side effect is one monster mood swing after mood swing. Besides my bad attitude and listless behavior, I just couldn’t even focus this morning. So, if you’re first-time-cleansing, keep in mind that giving up alcohol/vices = good, however giving up caffeine (and I only drink 1 cup a day) = possibly getting fired from your job. So I had some coffee. And it was really, really good.
Also, I’m rethinking the extent of this cleanse – my good friend and contributor Lara Eurdolian recommends cleansing only 3 days in the beginning, and working your way up to massive cleansing (she’s detoxed/cleansed in the past and knows her way around this stuff). Wanna know why? Because your body seriously can’t handle eliminating toxins and changing your entire lifestyle. You get massive hangovery symptoms. And if you live in the real world, you gotta keep those to a minimum.
That being said, 1 cup of coffee a day and shortening this thing to 5 days. First timers – unite!
