{Dr. Oz 3 Day Detox} Day 3 Recap

Sleep

I wish

The people that say they slept so much better and felt so much more awake while doing the detox are full of shit. I got approximately 3 hours of non-cumulative sleep last night for no discernible reason. I do have nights when I’m restless and have trouble sleeping but, if you believe some people who have done the detox, they felt like they slept better during it.

The only reason I can come up with as to why I couldn’t sleep is because I don’t feel great. I may be coming down with a cold or my sinuses might be on the attack. Either way, I’m feeling a little under the weather this morning. I remembered to pack my shakes and supplements but, forgot my tea and lemon. Thankfully we have some tea at work although it’s not the greatest, it fills the spot in a pinch. As of 11am, that’s all I have consumed today besides some water and my supplements. I’m blaming this on both not feeling great and the fact that, even though I like the breakfast shake, I’m already sick of it.

Finally around 1pm, I kind of feel hungry but, I still feel kind of icky and I’d rather eat a mint that drink my smoothie. I decided to muster through and drink my breakfast smoothie. Even though it’s lunch time, that lunch smoothie was not happening. It wasn’t bad. Pretty much the same as yesterday. Halfway through I started to have stomach cramps though and I’m not sure if that was a result of the smoothie or if it’s my possible cold/illness. Either way, I decided to shelve the drink until I felt a littler better.

By the end of the day I still didn’t feel great and I ended up only having some tea and that one smoothie. I know that sounds super healthy. I have a lot of thoughts after doing this Dr. Oz detox and it’s kind of made me rethink my original plan. I’ll have more details on my thoughts and my new plan in a separate post. For the record, I finally ate a butterscotch bar on Saturday.

This is part one in a series of posts about my experience with the Dr. Oz 3 Day Detox. You can find part 1 here and part 2 here.

  1. There is this nasty little thing called a “healing crisis”. When you slam you body into this kind of change, sometimes what happens is it says “oh!? Oh?! we are going to get better? let’s shove ALL THE CRAP OUT AT ONCE”.
    Which is why you feel sick.. and oogey.. and tired.. your body went into super duper fix it mode.. which I suppose is what the goal of the detox is.

    My personal opinion is that this kind of program is stressful on the body. I’ve done something similar.. and I’ve done some intermittent fasting.. my body hates it.. and the recovery from it is not so great because I want to shove ALL THE THINGS IN MY MOUTH.

    Which kind of defeats the purpose in my book.. but I also know that some people do really well on this kind of thing.

    • Good luck! Overall it was a learning experience for me. Take note of what Pirate Jeni said in her comment. She’s right about the feeling like crap because your body is pushing out the toxins. Let me know how it turns out for you!
