Detox packets make me feel ill
Detox packets make me feel ill
beachbdy ultimate reset detox cleanse ultimate detox tips
1/10/13 9:32 AM
Hi everyone!

I am on the first day of of week 2 (Day 8), and I am having SERIOUS trouble taking the detox supplement. I by no means have a weak stomach and the alkalinize is no problem for me, but I feel like I need to puke just by smelling the stuff.

All day (since the first packet this morning) I have been feeling tired, nauseous, shaky, and cold. I broke down and took an hour nap after lunch (which I had to force down), and I feel slightly better now. I'm not looking forward to the next packet before dinner.

Does anyone have any tips or advice for making it more bearable? I've lost 6.5 pounds in a week and I don't want to give up now just because I can't swallow the thing.

Thanks!

My alternative to the taste of that stuff was to put in pill form. Get vegan gelatin capsules at Whole Foods. Pour the contents of the detox packet in a small ramekin with vertical sides. Scoop the powder into the large portion of the capsule and pack as much in as possible, then put the top on. It should make about 14 capsules if you pack it in tight. You have to swallow all of those three times a day, but I'll take that over the taste of that stuff!

I agree with the person above!! emoticon Use the empty pill capsules. I also really hated the taste and feeling of the detox too though. I found mixing it with as little water as possible (6-emoticonz) in a shaker cup and SHAKING (not stirring...somehow it helped) it up helped. A girl doing it with me added lemon to hers, but that made it worse for me...but maybe worth trying. She loved the lemon trick. To help with the after effects I think a BIG glass of water right after helped my headache and energy.

If you have time let me know what you decide to do--I'd love to know because I will definitely do the Reset again at some point. I LOVED it. Congrats on losing 6.5 lbs last week! Did you have any favorite meals?

Something that helped me a lot with the flavor was to throw in my handful of the salt in right afterwards and wash it down with water. That cleaned out my mouth pretty well. Stick with it! I found the first two days of detox phase to be pretty tough, but my body got used to it. I was very drained emotionally for those two days, but I felt so much better on the backside.

Can you mix the detox with juice or any of the meals?? I have found it extremely difficult to take these packets. They should be in pill form.
Last night I just gave up and put them in my pintos. I almost puke drinking the stuff. Reset should be enjoyable not dreadful when it comes to taking the detox.

I ended up putting the detox in vegan gelcaps, and it made it much easier, since there was no taste. HOWEVER, swalling 14 pills, 3x a day, not counting the others, was tough. Glad it was only one week of it!
