5 Day Detox: Day 3

, by Zoë Gulliksen

Today has been a weird day with the detox. I have not been following the plan as closely as I could be because 1.) I feel like I need to eat more and 2.) I'm was not really in the mood for the meals today. Instead I ate

Oats with blueberries, strawberries, chia seeds & cinnamon

Hummus and celery

Post gym snack:
Kashi Honey Almond Flax Bar 

Egg white omelet with green and red peppers and tomatoes with seasoning

Handful of white cheddar all natural popcorn

Another egg white omelet
Frozen grapes

At 11pm and I was still hungry, which makes sense because I really didn't eat that much today. I also did an hours worth of work outs at the gym:

  • Elliptical Machine for 30 minutes, 3 miles, 375 calories burned
  • Stair Master for 10 minutes, 33 floors climbed, 80 calories burned
  • Treadmill for 20 minutes, 1.67 miles, 185 calories burned

Today I was just left tired and hungry all the time. Everything I ate was off the Detox menu except the popcorn & Kashi bar but I couldn't stick to it because I wasn't in the mood for the food. I was hungry but had no apetite.

Good news is I lost 3lbs in 3 days, but I know I have to be more organized with all this. In any case, I'm exhausted and going to bed<3 p="">


  1. How was your end result? I've been thinking about doing this, but my problem is that I truly have a shitty diet! I eat fast food, junk food, and candy all day. Luckily I'm not fat, I'm pretty thin, but I'd like to start clean eating and I'm not sure if I should just detox, or slow my way into this. How do you think daily meat eaters would react to this detox? Thanks!

    1. Hi Wendy, I'm a daily meat eater and I have just completed day 3 of Nikki Sharp's detox. It is working wonders for me, but I eased into it. If you quit sugar and fast food etc cold turkey you won't be able to do it, you will be irritable and have no energy. So ease yourself into it by making changes and cutting out sugar, salt and processed food. Good luck!
