21 Day Detox Support – Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the 21 Day Detox Program.

The most important thing to remember today is why you are going through this program. Keep your mind focused on your goals and remember… it’s only 21 days! Let’s get started!

How Should I Feel Today?

Usually, the first day is not too bad. You should experience some minor cravings, but most people don’t really notice too much on the first day. If you are a heavy coffee or soft drink user, you may begin to experience some withdrawal symptoms from the caffeine or sugar. This is perfectly normal and should subside over the coming days. If you experience a terrible caffeine headache, you may try brewing a little organic coffee and taking just a few sips, (Don’t overdo it here), and the headache will likely disappear. You should find you only need to do this for 1-2 days maximum and then you should be off the coffee altogether.

Weight Loss

For those wanting to lose weight, you should notice a loss of about 1 pound per day during the first week or so.  Make sure to weigh yourself very first thing in the morning after urination for the greatest accuracy.  It is important to measure your waist as well by using a measuring “tape” right around your belly button.  Suck in your gut as far as you possibly can and get your measurement.  You will repeat this every week throughout the program.  The average ‘inches lost’ around the gut ranges from 1-5 inches during the 21-day program.

Remember to limit your intake of fruits.  Ideally, for weight loss, your fruit consumption should be almost zero and limited to only berries in your shake (if necessary).  To increase the power of your weight loss goals, choose only 3% and 6% vegetables.  For more details about what to eat during the program to optimize weight loss, please see the document “Diet with Focus on Weight Loss Support”.



During the next few days you may not feel up to much exercise, but as soon as you can begin some moderate exercise.  This is not the time to train for a marathon, but daily exercise with sweating is tremendous towards helping you lose weight!  An evening walk is a good place to start.  Once you gain more energy and strength start to lift some weights.


Remember to fill out your Daily Intake Journal in your Purification Booklet and note how you are feeling.  This is an important part of identifying what foods might possibly be making you feel bad.
