    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!

    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

    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
