Day Two - I feel LIke Crap

Day Two of my misery, well alright it's not quite as miserable as I am making out, but it is pretty close!

I am not overly hungry right now (mid morning) but I am starting to feel sluggish, tired and generally worn out. Which according to all the literature I have read about the de-tox diet is a normal way to feel starting about the second day and lasting a few days. The duration of which depends on just how 'toxic' your internal organs are!

Knowing what I have put my body through the last couple of years I can say with certainty that if my internal organs could, they would take me to the United Nations for crimes against humanity.

I think the overall the concept of a de-tox is not which herbs necessarily you take, it's more the whole experience of cutting out things in your diet that are bad for a while.

I'm not pining for anything in particular like chocolate, it's more a desire for 'substantial' food which I am used to. Mainly red meat and bad carbohydrates which my body seems to crave, but when I have them it makes me sluggish and tired (although not quite the same as right now).

One of the important factors is to exercise as well, which I do anyway, walking to and from the office, taking the dog for a few walks most days and going to the gym for weights and cardio sessions. Last nights workout was certainly not up to my normal level, whether this was a psychological reaction or because I had eaten much much less than normal I don't know!

So day two and five days to go. I wonder what I will feel like tomorrow?

I'm lucky because I don't crave red meat at all. Apparently, if you stop eating the stuff, you will crave it less but when you do eat it again, you'd find it hard to digest because the enzyme to digest red meat in your body will dwindle as well.

Years and years and I do mean years ago, I worked for a well known enviornmental group and I decided to try bieng a vegatarian for a while.

I lasted about 6 months or so before my craving for flesh overtook me and I started to eat red meat again!

True when you stop something for a while the cravings lessen, but there are somethings that I just love!
