As I have not been feeling well lately, I decided to boost my immune system with a 7-day deep detox. UpGreatLife is a Berlin-based company that delivers detox box of your choice right to your doorstep.
In the morning you added a mix of fiber-rich psyllium seeds and invigorating matcha to my homemade green smoothie. The psyllium made it thicker and I was not hungry until late morning.
At 11:30 I had a Green Detox Smoothie which contains valuable nutrients, kiwi, thyme, and spirulina. It’s supposed to mineralize and alkalize your body.
After light lunch of my choice, I drank a cup of an organic Herbal Harmony tea with nettle and lemongrass. I’m used to having a coffee after lunch but I did not even crave it after the tea.
In the evening, I could have a light dinner with my family and before I went to bed I took Renewal capsules. They contain Vitamins B1 + B2 which support normal energy metabolism.
How do I feel after one week of deep detox with UpGreatLife ?
– My belly is not bloated.
– I feel lighter.
– And most importantly: I DON’T crave SUGAR!!! Honestly, sugar has been my Achilles heel since my pregnancy. I can’t explain how it is possible but right now, croissants and chocolate cakes have no power over me. It is amazing.
– If you don’t like green smoothies, this 7-day detox may present a challenge for you. But you should still give it a try. You may change your mind about green smoothies along the way.
