Stylist Evelia from Blowny came to us needing a recommendation for her eyes “I’ve been having extremely puffy eyes these days. Not just bags, underneath my eyes, but even my lids would be swollen in the morning. I tried cutting back the salt, sleeping with an extra pillow so my head is elevated. Cleanse my face and apply my hydrating eye cream. Still puffy eyes in the morining with 8 hrs of sleep, help.” We suggested the Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel:
Read her results: “The first night I used Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel, I didn’t even wash my face. I was feeling lazy, but still applied the gel before sleeping. The first thing I did in the morning was examine my eyes. My puffy eyes were just slightly puffy, but looked hydrated. I was happy. The second night, I washed my face, applied my face cream and the eye gel. The next morning I felt normal..my eyes weren’t puffy at all!!!.. I was shocked and impressed!!! I’m hooked.”
Kate’s Journey on David Kirsch’s 5 Day Detox-Day 5. Done!
What can I say except I CANNOT wait to eat some fruit and a piece of ezekial bread with almond butter tomorrow! 5 days a long time to cleanse and I am definitely ready to go back to eating meals. What I will say is that I am craving healthy eats like salmon and fruit so that is really exciting, not to mention I am down 10lbs.
As happy as I am to be almost done with the cleanse I am so proud of myself that I completed. I achieved a personal goal and now I am on track to keep eating healthy and feeling good. I haven’t had any extra energy the last few days so I am ready to get some sustenance in my life and get back to Soul-Cycle and Physique57. It is amazing how addicted to those two workouts!
Bottom line is that I am proud of myself for finishing the David Kirsch 5 day detox, I feel good and I am taking my healthy habits forward. I probably won’t be doing another cleanse for awhile but I would definitely do this one again and I recommend it to anyone looking to jolt their system into healthy eating. This is definitely a great cleanse to do after traveling for business or travel just to get back on track.
I would love to hear your thoughts on cleanses you have tried. I did this cleanse because I am asked so often what to do to get back to healthy eating after traveling… What do you do?
Kate’s Journey on David Kirsch’s 5 Day Detox-Day 4
I am not going to lie, today has been really hard. I woke up really tired and have felt like I was in a haze all day. I think I made the mistake of not being prepared, even though I knew I would be having a crazy day, so I didn’t have a salad and fish and instead just had a spinach, kale, cucumber and lemon juice and another protein shake. By day 4 I definitely should have had some food food. I have lost a total of 9lbs and I am not super hungry just tired.
The biggest benefit, other than the weight loss, is that my skin looks amazing! It is totally clear and has a glow to it. I totally get why celebs would do a detox cleanse before big events. I just hope that I can transition in a healthy manor from this detox to real life after tomorrow.
Kate’s Journey on David Kirsch’s 5 Day Detox-Day 3
OK today I am definitely waking up feeling fatigued. I think I may have overdone it with my workouts the past few days so today I am just going to walk. Positive side effect is that I am not overly hungry and I have lost 8lbs in 3 days! Now I know some of it was just water weight but dropping 8lbs on the scale is an exciting feat, especially when I was not doing this detox for weight loss. Maybe that is it, maybe when you don’t focus on weight loss and just on being healthy you lose weight?
I have to say that I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with the Calming Bubbles so in love we are adding them to the site this week! I am a total emotional eater and being that we are into year 2 of a start-up company I am constantly overwhelmed, excited and stressed so emotional eating comes with the territory. I am definitely finding that drinking 1 packet of these bubbles in the afternoon is helping curb my cravings and truly calming me down-no pun intended! What is in these Calming Bubbles you ask? Here is the deck of ingredients along with their function.
GABA (or gamma-aminobutyric acid) – the brain’s most important inhibitory neurotransmitter for helping us relax
L-Theanine - amino acid from tea plants that calms the brain
5-HTP - the serotonin-elevating amino acid
Vitamin B6 – mood-boosting vitamin essential to the production of serotonin
Chromium Picolinate – curbs cravings and keeps the metabolism burning
Adaptogens – include astragalus, ashwagandha root and rhodiola rosea root-can be drained by high anxiety so these work together to calm nerves
They contain all this and taste great! The flavor is strawberry-kiwi so it is a treat in the afternoon. Make sure not to wait until your water bottle is full to include the bubbles they are just that, bubbles and I have had 2 major spills. I never learn the first time. Fill your water bottle up half way, add the packet, fill it the rest of way and shake.
Kate’s Journey on David Kirsch’s 5 Day Detox-Day 2
5 Day Detox Day 2-Evening
I have to say I am shocked at how good I feel. I am definitely hungry but not starving. My energy level is good and although I am not doing this cleanse to lose weight I woke up this morning down 5lbs. Since I am going for full disclosure here I will say that I am definitely noticing that I am going number 1 every 20 minutes-flushing flushing flushing, but unlike other cleanses I am not stuck on the toilet doing the other number all day long… Sorry potty talk is very hard for me!
Here was EXACTLY what I ate and the exercise I did today.
8:00am Detox Shot-2oz liquid made from red wine, grape skins and grape seeds, and pycongenol-“an immensely rich and concentrated source of bioflavonoids. Together this team of super antioxidants works to disarm free radicals and reduce oxidative damage to the cells and skin.”
8:30am Protein Shake-I combine 12oz of water with the protein powder and 6 ice cubes to make it thick and fluffy to ensure maximum fullness.
8:40am Thermo Bubbles-David’s gift to our cleanse. These Thermo Bubbles are amazing! They definitely curbed my appetite and gave my energy a boost without the shakes and the highs and lows like other supplements of this kind.
9:15am-10:15am-Physique57 Open Class-Here’s the first weird thing I found about this detox. It is obviously working because this is the 2nd workout I have done and I am sweating way more than usual and my sweat smells like the detox shot-which isn’t super pleasant but definitely better than BO!
1:00pm-I had a crazy day and I was running around so I had another shake-I just brought a package to Health King and had them blend me a shake and I had a super greens juice of kale, spinach, celery, cucumbers and a little bit a lemon.
2:30pm-Calming Bubbles-just when I was really starting to get irritable and hungry I added a packet of calming bubbles to my water and immediately felt better. I’m pretty certain we need to carry these on 3floz.com.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO DRINK AS MUCH WATER AS POSSIBLE WHILE DOING THIS CLEANSE. I noticed today that if I went too long without water my mouth got dry and my energy noticeably dropped.
6:30pm-Protein Shake+Starbucks Venti Passion Ice Tea UNSWEETENED-this was a great treat at the end of the day, I would highly recommend an herbal tea at the end of the day.
That’s it. Now I know it does not sound like much but I as I said at the beginning I am hungry, not starving and I feel pretty good!! More tomorrow about the ingredients in the shot, Thermo Bubbles and Calming Bubbles. XKD
Kate’s Journey on David Kirsch’s 5 Day Detox-Day 1
It is the first morning of my 5 day detox. I am so nervous and excited. I chose the David Kirsch Wellness 5 Day Detox because I trust in David’s methods and his products are amazing. I have done literally every diet/cleanse in the book from the cabbage soup diet-master cleanse-Blue Print Cleanse but I either quit half way thru or went right back to my old habits the day after the bridesmaid/event was over I was a bridesmaid countless times and had to fit into MANY a too tight dress so I know cleanses…
This time is different. I am not trying to fit into anything and I am so much healthier. I am doing this cleanse to cleanse not to lose weight. This winter was brutal on my skin, hair and my overall health. Let’s be honest, 3floz.com is a little over one year old and starting a company is a killer on the stress level front and I have been feeling stressed and over tired for the past few months. Bottom line is a need a little pep in my step and that is what Spring is about right? I am in need of a renewal of the body and spirit so I looked into cleanses and decided on the David Kirsch 5 Day Detox because I still get to have food and the ingredients are proven to detoxify, more on that later. I am committed to completing this cleanse, I have promised myself and now you that I will complete this cleanse!! This is going to be a challenge for me as I am not known for my follow thru but I am going to finish this cleanse and I am bringing you with me
