    I am feeling great! I have been some changes to the menu because I have lots of leftovers so I am just eating those. I still sticking with only items on the menu just at different times and I realize that I might not even make some of the recipes. Maybe I will focus on those for the next detox :)

  2. Rachael says:

    Is it ok that I still have a headache on day three?

    • Jen Reilly says:

      Rachael, The headache is usually gone by Day 3. Did you drop caffeine suddenly on Day 1? Are you eating enough calories? Anything else going on? – Jen

      • Rachael says:

        I’m actually not a big caffeine consumer to start. I’m following the menu pretty strictly but maybe it’s the portions that are the problem. I will try to eat more tomorrow and see of that helps. I can’t think of anything else that would be a trigger. Thanks for the response!

  3. sherri says:

    Loving these juices. I’m doing my own salads and cutting back on all the rices and additional carbs

  4. Barb says:

    Done day 3 and each day I have felt “stuffed” following the menu pretty religiously. I am not a big eater so this is a lot of food and I have cut back on the portions. I cut out happy hour and coffee so I should be feeling great right? I have some “light” moments but mostly, my clothes are tighter – YUK! Any recommendations?

    • Jen Reilly says:

      Hey Barb, Watch your portions of nuts/seeds/avocados/root veggies. Stick with more raw fruits and veggies and low-sugar smoothies/juices. It’ll happen! You’ll feel amazing soon enough! XOXO

  5. Angela says:

    Hi Jen – I feel like I’ve been following your guidelines very carefully, but ever since lunch yesterday, I’ve been really nauseous when thinking about food. I’m wondering if this is a common symptom of detoxing and if anyone else has experienced it before.

    • Jen Reilly says:

      Hi Angela,

      I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well. You may have to cool it on the raw veggies, especially if you weren’t used to as many. Some folks get nauseous/indigestion with raw kale in smoothies, etc. It’s normal to feel a little of that, but certainly not fun! Try for more whole grains and cooked veggies today and see how you feel. Keep me posted! :) Jen

  6. Alice says:

    I am on day three now and let me tell you I feel fantastic! And the Shamrock shake is my favorite! I will def have this again and again!

  7. Kayla says:

    I am on day 3 and continue to have a bad headache. Is that normal?

    • Jen Reilly says:

      Hey Kayla! Sorry I missed your message! The headache should get better after Day 3. If it doesn’t, you may be dehydrated or not getting enough calories. Keep me posted if you try the detox again! xo Jen

  8. Jane says:

    I am just finishing Day 2, an also have a slight headache, but it’s probably caffeine withdrawal. I’m feeling full, but not stuffed. Kind of craving something sweet.

  9. Lorain says:

    Can you substitute dishes for others that you may have liked more or is there a reason behind each meal? I did not like the lentils but I did like the pupusas, I did not like the kale smoothie but I loved the carrot and cucumber! Can I eat the foods I liked again in-lieu of those I did not?

    • Jen Reilly says:

      Yes yes! The plan is only for folks who need more detailed guidance. Feel free to use the guidelines and make up your own plan. That’s what I typically do b/c there are so many leftovers. xo

    What a bitchin’ detox!!

    Thank you for sharing the detox, all the wonderful varied raw food recipes(love it!), and the very groovy sense of humor you use to motivate the “bitchless”..LOL

  11. Rose says:

    Links to recipes ? I purchased naked kale drinks to substitute but would like to try smoothies. Link doesn’t take me there?

  12. Jodie says:

    Split my day 1 salad over day 1&2 it wage so huge – plus hubby had the other half for dinner! Also day 2 juice over day 2&3 which has really cut down the prep time. Was sooo looking forward to sushi lunch today and it was worth the wait – had to by pass those amazing aburi salmon rolls but results will be worth it. Have been getting hungry quite early (my day starts at 5-6am) and berries don’t quite feel enough but by lunch I have no issues and have no hunger pangs for the rest of the day. Drink some more water (lemon, ginger with a kick of cayenne in hot water is my fav) or a herbal tea and can easily make it through. Lost 1kg in 2 days. Loving it!
