|Noun||1.||naysayer - someone with an aggressively negative attitude|
Yep, I am a "cleanse naysayer". I think the whole concept of cleansing and detoxing and fasting for improved health is dumb. Physiologically, it makes no sense. There's no reason why detoxing for several days is going to release all these built up toxins in the body. And there isn't a reputable physician or nutrition scientist out there that thinks it's essential for optimal health. Personally, I think it's smoke and mirrors.
So why did I just spend $100 on the David Kirsch 5-Day Detox???
Because I want to be a credible naysayer; one with direct experience in detoxing. I've never done a cleanse and I should at least try it once in my lifetime. And January is always a good time for starting something new, right?
Why the David Kirsch detox plan???
Because damn, detoxing is expensive! I looked into several options and just couldn't swallow the exorbitant costs involved...some are close to $300 for 2-3 days! Seriously, people pay $300 for juice? I can't believe I just paid $100! And that was the most reasonably priced cleanse I could find.
Plus, I figured that David Kirsch is a brand himself and its in his best interest to make sure his products are safe. These other cleanse companies could be run out of someone's garage with a juicer and bag of vegetable scraps for all I know.
So, starting next week, I'm officially in dietary detox. If anyone is kicking off 2011 a similar way, please chime in with your plan and how its going. Would love to share detox notes.
Have a safe and healthy New Year's Eve!!!
