DAY 10 - Detox diary COUNTDOWN

Out with the old...Are we ready to begin? Today, we're going to 'detox' our food cupboards by taking out everything that is not 'allowed' on the programme (I hesitate to call it a 'diet', with all the word's negative connotations. For me, a diet is undertaken specifically to lose weight; with this programme, the intention is to be good to the self, become more healthy in body and spirit – with any weight loss a side issue).So, start by getting yourself a nice big box from the supermarket and fill it with anything not on the diet. Put simply, that's anything with artificial additives in it. Start looking at the labels - you'll be surprised just how many 'e numbers' sneak in there without you looking.And put them all in your box and pack it away somewhere out of sight, for retrieval sometime after you resume 'normal eating' (which may be never, as you'll start to feel so good).Now you have nothing in the house to tempt you when you have one of those moments!Tomorrow: replenishing your stocks with healthy foods
