Detox – Day 6

Day 6.  Today was a study day.  It was supposed to be my first gym day, but that didn't happen. Everyone always says they're too busy - but it really is a hectic week, and by the way things are going I'll probably end up starting next Monday :0) As for how I feel, same [...]

Detox-Day 5

Day 5.  I spent the whole day grocery shopping and cooking.  Last week I found myself without prepped food and it made getting through the day so hard.  So today I made tajine (a quiche like dish with canned salmon, parsley, eggs, and feta cheese), *tikka, dahl (yummy!!), veggie soup, *baked zucchine with ricotta (basically [...]

Detox-Day 4

Day 4.  I have a gathering to go to today - i hope i don't stray...too much :0)  This morning though I woke and really felt a difference when I woke up.  My head wasn't heavy, I was ready to get up and get my day going.  And the energy lasted throughout - no sluggish [...]

Detox-Day 3

Day 3.  I woke up with no cooked food in the house. The problem with this program is that you can't just pick something up and go.  I can manage, but I'm worried about my dad - with nothing ready he might have tendency to cheat.  And I can't even cook anything today - rushing off to [...]

I’ve had a number of one-on-one talks with Manu Sharma, [...]

Detox-Day 2

Day 2.  My dad is shocked that he spent a day without bread.  I'm just hoping I can keep up this Martha Stewart act in the kitchen so that there will always be food in the kitchen.  I made rice and chicken today - waiting to see how they taste :0) What I ate today: [...]

Dr. Joshi’s Detox-Day 1

Alright-day one.  I'm all revved up.  I've even convinced my dad to give it a shot...we'll see how that goes - he's another fellow bread-aholic.  I'm starting today though I know I'll have to do some minor cheats - there's still some food in the fridge that I can't throw away and that I don't [...]

21 Day Detox

I came back from Greece & Turkey, with all my walking, and all my swimming, having gained weight.  Let's just say I enjoyed all the delicacies there were to offer :0)  After that I spent 30 days fasting during Ramadan...a month that's supposed to be a detox, but has turned into a month long feast [...]
