DETOX Diaries: 22 Days & a Lifetime + a Dr.Sara DETOX Discount


  • Total weight loss = 9.2 lbs
  • Inches lost on waist = 1.5
  • Inches lost hips = 0.5
  • Waist to hip ratio = 0.76

So the end is here. 22 days, a wealth of knowledge and a new lease on life! The information below summarizes my experience with the Dr.Sara Detox program and shares information on a fabulous discount on the program.


Instead of telling you how my last week went (because it was really easy and therefore kind of boring) I’m going to get right to the good stuff, because after all, that’s what you want to know right? How easy/difficult was the program? How has it changed your life? And how can I sign up?

Here is my suumary of the Dr.Sara DETOX program:

  • Day 1 – Feels like a DETOX
  • Day 2 – 5 Feels like a diet
  • Day 6 – 22 Feels like a healthy way of living life


I can’t even begin to express how much this program has changed my life. Before the Cleanse I was in constant discomfort in my gut. I felt swollen, achy and bloated. I was tired all the time and suffered from dull headaches most days of the week.

Now I have way more energy and feel at peace on the inside. But believe it or not that’s not what I’m most excited about.

I was dealing with some serious food issues. I was constantly battling myself when it came to food. I tried to eat well but I usually ended up giving into the cravings at some point throughout the week. I tried fad diets, calorie counting and regulated programs like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig. But nothing seemed to work or stick. It was still a constant argument in my head.

Clean eating is an in-depth topic, and I couldn’t begin to cover all I’ve learned in one post. But the knowledge I have gained in the last 22 days has truly changed my outlook on food and my view on me. I am worth taking care of my body and I am worth fixing my relationship with food. With clean eating (which is the result of the Dr.Sara DETOX program) I can maintain a healthy balance between enjoying the eating experience and looking out for my health and well being. And once a week I still get to indulge on some not-so-good foods.

On Thursday I attended the last group meeting for the program and I was surprised to find myself feeling quite emotional. There is a huge aspect of the program that has to do with one’s feelings. For me I hadn’t taken the time to recognize that part fully, but when it came time to say goodbye to Dr.Sara, all the feelings came out.

I have been turning to food for a long time for comfort and as a stress reliever. But with the guidance and education from Dr.Sara, I feel like I’ve changed that permanently.


Everyone has different reasons for participating in a DETOX program. Some want to lose weight and others want to give their system a break. Others are interested in cleaning out their bodies of the toxins they’ve overweighed their bodies with.

Whatever your reason for interest in a program like this, I highly recommend trying out the Dr.Sara DETOX program. You won’t go hungry and you won’t be stuck drinking only liquids for 22 days or other controversial methods that exist.

You’ll gain a tremendous amount of education and you’ll feel great. You’ll likely also take something away that is unique to you. It’s different for everyone. It’s not hard! It’s harmonious and life affirming.


I am super excited to share the awesome discount Dr.Sara has set up for City Mom readers. If you’ve ever wanted to try a DETOX now is the time and you have two excellent options.

DETOX Diaries – Week Two

Dr.Sara DETOX  

If you missed the first two Dr.Sara Detox posts check them out here.  


Weight loss = 7.2 lbs
Inches lost = 1 inch around waist
Waist to Hip Ratio Start: 0.81 – Moderate Health Risk
Waist to Hip Ratio Today: 0.79 Low Health Risk 

Your health is affected by where fat is distributed on your body. People who carry more weight around their waist (central obesity) compared to their hips are at greater risk for developing the following health conditions: high blood pressure, high cortisol (stress hormone), cardiovascular diseases and type II diabetes. 

Week 2

Day Six was the day we were able to add some new foods. No more vegan diet…for some. I surprised myself by taking to the vegan lifestyle very well, so I decided to skip the meat. For others chicken, turkey and  fish were introduced.  

Brown Rice Flour Pancakes



Now that we’re well underway with the DETOX, it’s time to take a look at the other aspects of one’s self. We’re not just physical bodies; we’re also made up of heart and soul. This week it’s time to focus on cleaning out our inner selves.  

Dr.Sara gave us an assignment to find one item that we haven’t used for five years but that at one time meant a lot to us and get rid of it. Since I just moved last year, I had recently gone through this activity. Nothing came into our new home that didn’t already fit these criteria.  

I did decide to go through my nightstand (that tips over when both drawers are open) and purged some books, magazines and odds and ends that I had been saving for some reason or another. It felt good to say good-bye to things I wasn’t using and now it doesn’t topple over when opened.  

We also discussed our relationships and our outlooks on life. Participating in a DETOX is both a physical and emotional endeavour and many of us shared stories about the changes we were noticing in an emotional way. It was a really positive and motivating group meeting. I’m so thankful for the support.  


Every day we are exposed to numerous toxins. Some we can’t control, unless we moved to a deserted island, but some we can. Think about the products you use in your morning routine. Shampoos, creams, toothpaste, soap etc. Most of the products contain dangerous chemicals that in small doses may not pose a threat, but used regularly over time they can expose us to a large amount of cancer causing toxins.  

This week I switched to natural body soap. I totally love the feeling of my skin after washing. The soap rinses off really easily and leaves no residue behind. I can’t afford to switch all my bathroom related products as once, so I’m taking small steps; one product at a time to help reduce the toxins entering my body.  


This past weekend was the first full weekend that I spent on the DETOX. It was a bit rough. For some reason I missed my coffee more than ever. I longed for a hot, steamy pumpkin spice latte while strolling through the woods with my husband and daughter on a beautiful fall day. I did find some hot apple cider which hit the spot but I learned that coffee isn’t just a drink to me. It represents many things and has many meanings in my life and I am very attached to it.  

This feeling lasted into the middle of the week; a general tired, blue type feeling. But the good news is that midweek, I perked up. I realized I was up to a seven pound weight loss and I was feeling leaner in my torso. And the achy, swollen feeling had disappeared from my gut. I wasn’t feeling like a nap as often and I wasn’t hitting my  mid-afternoon low.  


I’m half way there! Thursday was Day 12 and that increased my excitement because I was able to introduce some more new foods. Tomatoes, bananas, eggs, tofu and grapefruit were among the list of foods. This opened up so many more meal options and made life a little easier.  

I was so excited to be able to make Tofu Chilli, Apple Walnut Muffins and Banana Nut Smoothies from the Dr.Sara DETOX manual. Delish!  

Apple Walnut Muffins


The next five days will be similar; healthy, clean foods and hopefully more physical and emotional benefits.

I’m Doing a DETOX: Dr.Sara DETOX


After two wonderful weeks off from work, today I make my way back to the corporate world. It is with mixed emotions that I return. On one hand I look forward to getting back to my normal routine, but on the other hand I cherish the time spent with Little S and my husband and I will miss that carefree time.

I must admit that I vacationed to the fullest and my waistline is suffering. I behaved poorly, eating mostly whatever I wanted and enjoying multiple cold beers on the hot summer afternoons.It’s time to get back on track and to do so I’m going to be participating in my first ever DETOX CLEANSING PROGRAM.

Doing a DETOX program is something that I’ve always been interested in but something I’ve never actually done anything about it. When I learned of the Dr.Sara DETOX program based out of Life With Baby here in London, I was thrilled.

I learned a little about Dr.Sara’s 22-Day Detox Diet Program and then visited the website to take the How Toxic Are You quiz to find out more and to see if this program was right for me. What I learned next was shocking. So many ‘little’ things I have come to accept as part of life and getting older were questioned in the quiz. I couldn’t believe that perhaps some of these symptoms weren’t ‘normal’ after all.

Take a look at this list of symptoms that are uncovered in the quiz and that could be ‘fixed’ by participating in a DETOX program.

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Poor sleep/Insomnia
  • Dark under eye circles
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sinus problems/Stuffiness
  • Sore throat/horsiness
  • Acne/Eczema/psoriasis
  • Hair loss
  • Excessive sweat/hot flashes
  • Mood changes
  • Stomach problems
  • Bloating or discomfort after eating
  • Joint stiffness
  • Low energy/fatigue
  • Food cravings/binging
  • Poor memory/concentration

I scored a 54/100 on the toxicity quiz and although I’m nervous about participating in the 22-Day program, I am so excited to realize the benefits and achieve an overall healthier me.



This program is designed to give your body a break from the toxins that affect it on a daily basis. It is done in a gentle, non-invasive way and allows you to maintain your normal daily activities. The best part is that it can be done from the comfort of your own home with support through online forums and weekly support meetings in person (Note: this can also be done online without the in-person meetings.)

The goal of the Dr.Sara DETOX Diet program is to give you a sense of community, inspiration, motivation and knowledge to complete the program successfully and with a positive attitude.

“To sum it up, the Dr.Sara DETOX Program will leave you feeling lighter, healthier and completely rejuvenated. Dr.Sara’s many years of research and experience will reward you with a healthier body, inside and out, without the usual side effects or healing crisis that accompany other DETOX plans. With her 22-Day Body DETOX program, Dr.Sara promises you will experience the most effective diet cleansing that will provide long-lasting results, along with amazing health benefits.”


I’ll be starting this program on September 4th and of course I’d love for you to join me. If you’re a little unsure and would like to learn more visit Dr.Sara`s website and follow along with me every week starting the 2nd week of September. I`ll be posting my experiences and my honest thoughts each week.

I’m a little nervous about starting this program and ditching some of my bad habits so I`d love your support and feedback. Have you ever done a cleanse? What were your thoughts and experiences? Do you have any advice?

Wish me luck!
