Chicken broth spinach cleansing diet
I made an email connection yesterday that was work related with a gal in another part of the country. In the course of our online business, we got on the subject of the challenges of travel to cool places where the food is as good as the scenery. She told me a doctor friend had urged her to try this cleansing, metabolic reset (not her words exactly) where for one day a week you eat nothing but chicken broth and spinach in whatever form or amount. After one month you can anticipate a 12 - 15 # weight loss. She has been so happy with the results because not only was she not hungry, she has lost 18# and is now up to 2 - 3 days a week of this regimen.
Although I eat healthy - salads, whole grains, yogurt, fruit - and work out at the gym 3 days a week, I think I am in a rut and have found that a shakeup in my diet and exercise pattern every now in then wakes up my metabolism. I'm thinking this wouldn't be a bad thing to try...in moderation, of course.
Hey! How bad could it be? I think I'll ask my own doctor when I see him next week for an appointment.
