Detox night one



What you need for this detox:


- 1KG of leeks
- Olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Lemon


You first need to wash and cut you leeks into 2cm segments. Boil for 20 minutes, strain water into a container.


You are going to have 3 meals, for you main meal you are going to have a bowl of the water you strained into a container. For snacks you are going to have leeks.


Very exciting huh?


You can spice up you're snacks by adding some salt & pepper/ lemon and olive oil. All optional of course.


All served up 
Its Friday night and I just finished my first leek dinner. I added some lemon, salt and pepper just to spice it up at bit.
My first thought 'god I'm starving'. In all fairness this is to be expected, the last time I ate was 5 hours ago. It been an hour since I ate and it is far from filling, I regret having plans this weekend. You really need to plan a stay in bed weekend.


Because I will be consuming very little calories, I am bound to lose a few pounds. I am almost 100% positive that I will put those pounds back on or more. I think I'm going to have to keep telling myself that any weight loss is a side effect of the detox and not to be disappointed when I gain it back.


One thing that worries me slightly, it that I will be tempted to drink a lot more water. At this exact moment I am really thirsty but I know I am hydrated.


Have you gone on a detox? how did you find it?
