| | Will the body detox after a new lifestyle????
First off i need to explain a little background ....I have made some recent new changes to my lifesyle. I used to smoke cigarettes, and drink more than I should etc. I recently quite all of that. I started to eat only healthy foods, I have started a steady, solid, workout plan at my gym. Also I used to drink loads of coffee everyday, 2 to 5 cups a day, nonstop since I was probably about 13 years old, and Im 35 now. I switched my coffee habit with green tea (no sugar or milk) and suprizingly it was an easy changeover. These changes have basicly been a new years resolution that I made to stick, however I didnt do all of these changes at once, it was a slow steady changeover one thing at a time, but its been easier than I thought it was going to be. I think partly because these changes had been on my mind long before the end of December. Now Its been a few weeks since 1/1/2007, but I really dont see myself going back to my old ways, in fact it doesnt even enter my mind.
I must say that I feel great.....I feel like Im 20 years old again.....However i have noticed just lately that I got a cold, I have had a few more pimples than usual, and other minor symptoms similar to these.
Now for my question.... If a person makes some major lifestyle changes with health and nutrition, etc. .....Will the body go through a detox period....Like a purging effect, getting rid of excess crude that has built up in the body systems over the years? I was really suprised to catch a cold, etc....Could my body be breaking through a purging period or something? Or am I simply looking to deep into just a simple cold? Just curious if anyone in the know here might be able to give me their opinions.
