Neera Detox Diet: Day 2 + 3!


guess what everybardi. YZ and i actually completed our 3 day detox diet successfully!!!
*throws confetti in the air*

today is day 4, and i'm supposed to break fast with light meals, such as fruits, veggies and soups. not supposed to take meat or anything heavy cos you need to let your system adjust slowly back to digesting proper food!

i still had a bit of pork though :X pork rib lotus root soup for lunch! and and and i had a handful of sinful chiku chips already hahaha. i've come to realize that i actually DO have the power in me to resist snacking/eating unhealthy food though, cos i managed it for 3 entire days!

day 2 was fine for me, i just drank Neera and distilled water throughout the entire day and didn't even think of having a single bite of food! iron strong determination :P YZ had it a little worse, cos by night fall, he said he was so hungry he could eat a cow!

you won't believe what we ended up doing when we got back to my home at night LOL. my mother cooked like soooo many dishes for dinner and they were all on the dining table and in the fridge, and worse til, we spotted little containers of bak kua at home already!!! but we couldn't touch any of the food, so the only thing we could do was to look at all the food and even went as far as to open the container of bak kua to sniff its fragrant aroma..... omg! smells so good!!! if i weren't on Neera, i confirm plus chop eat already.

so we just went to sleep off all the thoughts of yummy food, because it was just one more short day to go to end our 3 day detox! i was obsessing over it so much, i actually dreamt that i ate a piece of dim sum my parents bought home, and was immediately overwhelmed with serious guilt and regret... D: D: D: damn kua zhang right! in my dream, i was thinking "OH DAMN IT... there goes my two days of hard work!!!" so relieved when i woke up and realized that it was only a dream, and that my will of steel was still holding on fast!

i also took the herbal detox tea regularly every morning and night, so it did have some effect on me after all, on days 2 and 3! which made me feel lighter and less bloated! weighed myself on day 2 night, and was a little disappointed that i was still the same: 53.1kg!

the last day was pretty easy for me, it helps that i was busy working the entire day, so i could concentrate on work instead of thinking about food! one of the interesting things is that my energy level was fairly high throughout all three days, i woke up very early every day and felt alert mentally. i didn't have any sluggish afternoon period or like post food coma, which made me feel pretty good. whenever i felt a little hungry, i'd just have another drink of Neera (carried a 1.5 litre bottle to work and kept it next to me on the table) or drink some plain water instead. all went well til night time, and when i got back home and weighed myself, i dropped another 0.5kg to hit 52.6kg! :D finally under the 53kg mark!!! YAY!

for some reason, YZ didn't seem to take to the detox as well as me, while i felt completely fine for all three days, he's suffering from some symptoms like sore throat, stuffy nose and heatiness, which i'm not sure if it's cos of the detox, or he just caught a bug from somewhere! 

*edit* just read from Neera's website that YZ's symptoms seems to fall under the "Cleansing Symptoms" that means your body is detoxing!
hmm.. fly-like symptoms and stuffy nose sounds exactly like what YZ's experiencing! i suppose it's good cos it means his body is pushing the toxins out? :P nevertheless, he weighed in at 74kg after the 3 days, and i think he lost like 3kg or something? win me liao lor!

i'm pretty sure that once i start eating proper meals again, my weight will probably increase a little cos it's probably lower due to the fact that there's no food in my system for the past 3 days! but i believe that with some control and moderation, i'll continue to watch my diet and hopefully maintain/continue losing weight healthily.

some readers and friends have expressed their concerns about how crash diets don't work well and will have adverse effects in the long run, but i'm not depending on crash dieting to lose weight, cos i've done it the hard way before and i know that weight loss is the most successful with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

i've done a lot of googling and research as well, and have read about all the pros and cons of fasting/detox, as well as how the human body works/reacts to weight loss and the most effective ways to lose weight healthily and successfully. doing this 3 day detox for me is more of a challenge to myself that i have the will power and determination to abstain from food and deny all my addictions and cravings for 3 days! it's helped me realize that i am in control of my own eating habits, and i'm glad YZ and i both made it to the end woohoo! 

from my post-Christmas weight of 56.7kg (i honestly haven't weighed this much for a couple of years already!), i lost weight to about 54.4kg through watching my diet (myfitnesspal!!!) and now i've lost another 1.8kg to 52.6kg through Neera Detox, which for my height of 163cm is nowhere near low. my face seems to look sharper (is it an illusion only???) and my tummy is definitely flatter. don't worry, i'm never going to become stick thin or skinny cos i just don't have the right genes. LOL. but i'm still hoping for a 50kg! :D see how la. even if i never reach 50kg, i will still try. hahahaha. will still continue to attend my Pilates classes weekly and keep track of what i eat!

found an interesting article: Study Shows Why It's Hard to Keep Weight Off
explains a lot about why so many people put weight back on after losing it! :( apparently our bodies are working against us. grrr. can't let those damn hormones get the better of us!

10 more days exactly to CNY! :D
