What I blog about over the next few days will probably be one of the craziest things I have ever done. I risk losing the handful of readers that visit this blog on a daily basis - out of disgust for what they will read (Although my Mom will probably come back. Right? Mom?)
The Great Experiment
Yesterday my friend Randy described a natural colon cleanse to me that he learned about in a natural health class. I was interested in the simplicity of what I heard and the seemingly powerful effectiveness of the process. I have never once detoxified my body through a colon cleanse process. I have been on the lookout for "something" good that I can do to my body to "get me going" again so that I can start out my inline training season with a clean slate.
My friend Randy is one of the greatest motivators I've ever met in my life. Guess what? Today I am starting a three day natural colon cleansing program. Randy is going to do it too. I am going to blog about the experience. Aren't you excited?
I want to see if this natural program works. I want to see if it does the job that all those other significantly more expensive programs claim to do. Also, I figure blogging about it will help you, perhaps, if you are interested. At this point it is an experiment. Let's see what happens.
The Detox Plan
Day 1 - Eat only citric fruit all day. Drink water all day. I am going to eat grapefruit and oranges.
Day 2 - Fast. Strive for no food at all. Allowed to eat some citric fruit if hunger is strong. Drink water all day.
Day 3 - In the morning mix up a quart of heavy salt water and drink as much as I can. The salt water mixture should be strong enough that some salt can't even dissolve and it will sit at the bottom of the mixture. After drinking the salt water I need to wait and be prepared. I am told within a few hours the cleanse process will be complete. I will then go back to drinking water for the rest of the day. I can also resume eating as normal again. However, normal here for me means in better than I have been.
I am going to the grocery store on my way into work to get a sack of grapefruit. I will blog about the experience throughout the next three days.
Ready. Set. Go.
