Diets and Detoxes

It is likely that I’ll someday have to pay close attention to what I eat. For the longest time I’ve simply tried to keep a balanced diet–I eat terrible things like fried chicken (in moderation) next to wholesome things like baby spinach. I enjoy desserts, but I don’t overeat. And I exercise.

Plus, I’ve been blessed with a great–if not too great–metabolism. For the longest time I tried so hard to get up to 150 pounds, but I simply couldn’t do it.

But I’m 31 now (I just typed “But I’m 30 now” and then realized that, damn, I’m 31! Soon to be 32!), and I can tell that my metabolism is changing. For the first time in many years, I had to change my waist size from 32 to 33. I still consider myself healthy, but there’s a little more to love than before.

Why am I talking about this? Recently a friend contacted me about a detox program she runs with a friend of hers every year. She writes about it on her lovely blog here (I would highly recommend subscribing to the blog. She’s an excellent writer, and she writes about France in an informative and yet often humorous way). I don’t know anything about detoxes, but this one looks legit. I think sometimes our bodies need a reset to change the seemingly inevitable path of age, laziness, and poor diets.

If you try it, let me know what you think–I’d love to hear about your experience.

  1. Are you going to participate in the reboot? If so, are you going for the 5-day or the 10-day, and are you going to blog about your progress?

    • My body tends to react poorly when I change my regular diet, usually in the form of really bad migraines. So probably not, but I am curious.
