High Raw Detox Day 1

Recently I had the pleasure of reading two of Natalia Rose's books, Raw Life Force Energy and Detox 4 Women.  I was so inspired that I wanted to embark on her cleanse, however I felt I needed support.  After going to Natalia's website, I found the contact information of her protoge, Ana Ladd-Griffin and got in touch with her. She is warm and encouraging, knowledgeable and very down to earth.  I will be working with Ana through the next few weeks as she coaches me along this cleanse.  Ana helped me get started and has made me feel as though I have support and someone rooting for me, it's a huge comfort.  If you would like to reach Ana, you may do so at

For the course of the next few weeks, I will share with you my journey by posting my food intake and relevant information.  I'm filled with excitement and also a little trepidation.  I'm exuberant over the prospect of feeling better and having more energy.  I'm a little bit scared (I don't know why exactly), but I am going to do this.  If anyone else is doing this, I would Love to hear from you!  If anyone wants to join me, welcome!  Here we go, day one.

                                          Morning wake up:
Lemon and warm water with a little stevia.

Mid morning:
Green juice consisting of broccoli stalks, lemon, spinach, celery and carrots and a tiny dash of stevia.  Normally I put apples or pears in my juice, but no fruit for now.  The stevia added that slight sweetness I wanted.   I almost forgot to take a picture!

Lunch:  Big Salad with carrots, cucumber and a smashed avocado with lemon, salt and stevia, sweet potato with just a smidgeon of coconut butter, salt and pepper.

I was so full after this I thought I couldn't possibly be hungry again later, but around four I felt like my blood sugar was dropping.  You know that irritable slightly shaky state?  (blood tests have shown there is nothing wrong with my sugar levels but...).  So I had four squares of dark chocolate while another sweet potato was baking.  

Dinner:  A repeat of lunch.

Natalia Rose is an excellent writer. I like her style because it is very exclusive. I think she should write a book about viagra online
