Fruit Flush - Day 2

The pre-flush day of this detox was so easy that I thought the other two days would surely be a piece of cake. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't sleep well last night at all. I was plagued by a killer headache and thoughts of fruit.

I woke up this morning at 6:20 and weighed in. That was the only highlight of my day. 160 pounds. That's 5 less than the first day! My head was still pounding and I just didn't feel well. I spent the morning in my office in the dark dealing with the headache, nausea, being alternately hot and cold, foggy headedness, and an overall feeling of crapiness. Day 2 sucked! I gave in at 11:15am and took a couple ibuprofen. That barely took the edge off. I skipped the gym today and took a nap instead. I think what I'm experiencing is caffeine withdrawal. I've only been mildly hungry though except for last night when Laura cooked some amazing smelling pork chops. My mouth was watering! 

So, here's what I ate today:

8am - 1 banana
9am - 8-12oz. water
10am - 2 cups cantaloupe
11am - 8-12oz. water
12pm - 2 apples
1pm - 8-12oz. water
2pm - 2 kiwis
3pm - 8-12oz. water
4pm - 16 grapes
5pm -8-12oz. water
6pm - About 4 cups raw vegetable salad topped with half of an avocado and the juice of half a lime. 12oz. protein shake.
7pm - 8-12oz. water

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that tonight I get some sleep and can make it through tomorrow! This is much harder than I expected it to be. The discipline isn't the problem and I feel like I'm eating a lot of food. But this nasty sick feeling is the worst!


  1. It could also be a carb withdrawl. I've read that a lot of people get the 'carb flu' when they remove bread, rice, pasta, and grains from their diet.

  2. Joni, it was miserable, whatever it was! It felt like a migraine mixed with the flu mixed with food poisoning!
