Well today is the third day of my detox/fast. I still haven't experienced any detox side effects and my energy is great. I think my body detoxed very gradually over the last three years. Especially the last year.
As of today, I have lost 4.8 lbs. My wife keeps asking me what I plan to do tomorrow for food. I think I will continue to eat raw for the rest of the week. The only difference is I'll eat some solid meals in there on top of the smoothies.
Then I was working on my catch and the high elbow push. Then six beat kicks for each stroke. Next thing I know I had swam 1500 yards. So I thought, "Well, I've gone this far and I'm not tired." So I swam another 500 yards and then did another 100 just for the heck of it.
I'm enjoying losing the weight, though I realize it can't last. Perhaps doing this fast/detox is what my body needed to reset my metabolism. We will see what happens tomorrow. Until tomorrow my friends.
