I have begun a 10-day nutritional detoxification program that is being offered at work. It's a well put together system with good nutrition and research behind it, not just some over the counter thing. There's a nutritional drink powder to make sure you're still getting all the vitamins, minerals, and proper balance of fats, proteins, and carbs that you need as you eliminate certain foods which may be causing problems due to sensitivities. The dietary plan seems manageable and not unpleasant. It just requires some careful planning. Tuesday was the first time I used the shake. Lord have mercy...
When my children were young I taught them not to say they hate the food they are given. They were allowed to say, "It's not my favorite." I would like to emphatically state this vile swill which seems barely fit for human consumption and which I like to refer to as powdered sewage is most assuredly NOT my favorite.
I am assured that on days 5-7 of this program I will be craving this shake just to fill me up and stave off hunger. I think I'm going to have to be hungrier than I've ever been before in my life to experience that particular craving. If Hugh Jackman presented himself to me naked save for a layer of this stuff I'd likely turn down the opportunity to lick him clean.
Please excuse me. I need to go shave my tongue.
