Detox in a Bottle by Nadine Tengco

I hate to admit it, but yes, I needed this.

So earlier this year I said yes to myself and yes to a 3-day detox program by Nadine Tengco.

At 33 ½,  I was still a virgin to these healthy living, detox cleansing program blahblahblahs.
I was a slob/blob/hog. (Still am and will always be.) But now I can proudly say, "Oh, detox? Been there, done that. Pfffftttt."


Kidding aside, it's good AND essential to reset our bodies every once in a while after abusing them with too much chocolates, fried food, processed food, cakes, cupcakes, whipped cream, marshmallows, beef fat, foie gras… you know, all the wonderful things in the world.

Every once in a while, bottles of Nadine Tengco are good for us. No matter how much we dread them.

To maintain freshness, they deliver everything you need for a day right to your doorstep the night before. All you have to do is stick them in the fridge and pray for strength to face the morning.

With very clear instructions and optionals

Everything is freshly pressed and blended - juices and soups made with lemongrass, ginger, cilantro, basil, parsley, tarragon, spinach, wheatgrass, banana, pineapple, papaya, lemon, cinnamon, turmeric, cloves, cayenne, stevia, pumpkin, bell pepper… WHEW!!! I feel clean and green already after typing all that out!

You can go about your daily activities while on the program. They even suggest brisk walking, yoga or swimming to help the body pass things along.

I am not gonna lie. I did none of the above on Day 1. My only activity was walking to the toilet and back because I had to pee several times during the day. I felt weak and had a terrible headache, which I was told was a normal reaction as the body experiences temporarily increased levels of toxins due to elimination and cleansing. My fault. I abused my body too much and it was payback time. Ouch.
I was also very, very hungry. And irritable. And grouchy.

Day 2 was a bit better.

Nikki of Detox in a Bottle gave me the go signal to attack a few pieces of crackers. Of course I went beyond a few pieces. Hee hee.

Nikki was really nice, checking in on me every once in a while, making sure I had not gone mad and been rushed to a mental institution.

Day 3 was better (still with the help of crackers.)

I had my Chili Lemonade while getting a foot spa 

I was too excited to reward myself for the job well done that I hit the dinner buffet the minute I finished my last bottle. Ops!

I am but human.
