Detox Kicks Bad Habits!
I recently received a great testimonial from someone who went through the ‘Dr Bob Detox’ in order to help him stop drinking so much.
Before sharing his results, here is an update of further benefits I have received:
Detox Can reveal Your True Addictions
I completed my 7 day detox this morning and thought you may be interested in my thoughts and the results I achieved.
Firstly, as you know, my primary reason for detoxing was to try and wean myself off the bottle of wine a day I have been consuming for the past considerable length of time. Hypnotherapy (at the pain clinic), meditation, concerns over high blood pressure and concerns from friends and family haven’t been able to help me reduce my consumption at all. Though I follow a healthy diet (no irony intended), weight train, cycle and run most days of the week I have also become reliant on Diet Coke to see me through the energy lows that come from consuming so much alcohol and I have been drinking at least a litre a day, often more!
Hence the Programme.
Having made the commitment I had no fear that I would be able to complete it but, despite watching the film of your experience, my primary concern was that I would have a major reaction to alcohol and caffeine deprivation; would end up with blinding headaches, diarrhea, zero energy, etc and be continually hungry. Chris, the programme was excellent!
I can honestly say that I didn’t experience a prolonged headache throughout the 7 days. I got the occasional pain (rather like a hunger pain, a niggling irritation in my temple that lasted until I had some vegetables), but nothing like I’ve been experiencing from all the wine I’ve been consuming or my bodies reaction when I’ve attempted to reduce my caffeine intake.
Days 2 and 7 were my worst days:
Day 2. Very little energy and feelings of anxiety alternating with poor focus (not all the time but when it was time to take another shake).
Day 7. No energy and bad tempered (out of sorts), but maybe due to feeling so well on Day 6 I had done too much exercise and gardening!
Days 3,4,5,and 6. Woke up with lots of energy, was able to continue with my free weight programme and gentle 3km runs each day. Felt focused and perfectly able to work.
I was really impressed with the programme, the shakes are filling and reasonably tasty (as you know). My major problem was with eating so many ‘greens’. I can honestly say I missed salt more than I missed either the wine or the Coke, however what I craved most was fruit; a continual longing for any fresh fruit at all times of the day…I guess it was sugar I really wanted and, apart from wine,fruit is my primary source of sugar.
Anyway, here are the results from my 7 day programme. I weighed myself each day, took three blood pressure readings from which i got the days average and then calculated the reduction for the week.
BP: 06/07/15 132/ 84
BP: 13/07/15 115/ 78
Waist: 06/07 34.5″
Weight: 06/07 67kg
Body Fat: 06/07 16.4
Muscle: 06/07 53.1
Visceral Fat: 06/07 7.5
I’m amazed by the reduction in my blood pressure and if I can keep off the salt as well as the wine and coke I have no doubt that I’ll be making an appointment with the Dr to discuss reducing my medication.
Waist reduction is great and by sticking to a clean diet, free of alcohol, aspartamine and soda I know I’ll reduce more fat from my waist line.
Visceral Fat result is fantastic!
I would wholeheartedly recommend this programme, it was easy, practical, simple, not too challenging and easy to fit in with my everyday life. The results are fantastic and I’m optimistic that I’ll be able to keep off the wine until I feel strong enough to reintroduce into my life occasionally and only at social occasions.
Many thanks Chris, wish me luck and wish me well
