First response: "no way"
But then she said it was only for 48 hours and she needed a buddy, so I reluctantly said "yes?".
What did we get ourselves into?
And honestly, it wasn't the lack of delicious food I'm used to eating (and the morning coffee of course), I wasn't having cravings for french fries, it was how my body was starting to feel that made the cleanse so hard... I was tired and had an awful headache and was making poor decisions. Dr. Oz said we could eat as many "snacks" as we wanted, but I went through my whole bunch of radishes, ate 4 celery sticks, and still felt pretty sluggish.
It was dinner time and I had a big ol' pot of stew cooking (per the strict menu) and I thought, this is going to be fabulous. I will eat this massive pot of stew and I'll be okay! I can do this!
After an hour of simmering, I took a quick taste, and it was horrible. I even added things I wasn't suppose to add in a last ditch attempt to make it worth eating and nothing helped.
I grabbed a piece of bread (not on the list) and tried to eat the soup with it, but I just ate the bread instead. Then put butter on it (definitely not on the list). Then grabbed another piece of bread, and another.
I lasted 12 hours of a 48 hour cleanse.
