just started green smoothies, today I feel awful!!
« on: January 22, 2011, 09:10:40 AM »

got a vitamix and decided to go cold turkey onto green smoothies, gave up meat, coffee, wine, bread etc. This is my sixth day and I suddenly feel awful. So tired, cold and generally miserable. I know this is to be expected but generally how long will these symtoms last and is there anything I can do to alleviate them?

Wow - how awesome for you to want to make such a change! Cold turkey with so many things is a huge challenge.

The detox period varies from person to person. With changing so much at one time, be sure that you are eating enough of the good stuff to keep up your energy - drink plenty of water. Stick with it, the results will be worth it!

Josie, that is indeed an amazing challenge!

How about an update? How is your journey going?

I hope by now you have gotten through the worst of your detox. The best advice is to make sure you are getting enough fuel and nutrition as well as lots of clean water and good rest to help reduce detox symptoms.

All the best!
