The Divorce Detox Diet

lemon-1485887_1920

The Divorce Detox Diet has nothing to do with your waistline or the number of celery stalks you consume in a day. This diet is not about cleansing your body; it’s about cleansing your mind and your heart.

There are no sign-up fees, no special formulations to purchase. All you need is some motivation to feel better and some direction to get there.

The Divorce Detox Diet Guidelines 

To be avoided:

  • people that bring you down
  • “shoulds,” both from yourself and others
  • always/never thinking
  • cyberstalking your ex
  • painful reminders and mementos
  • victimization

To be consumed in small amounts:

  • social media
  • movie or Netflix binges
  • pity parties and days spent in bed
  • alcohol
  • comfort foods
  • blame and guilt

To be consumed in moderate amounts:

  • reflection and analysis
  • distractions
  • reading about and/or listening to stories of divorce
  • hobbies or work projects
  • reinvention of home space or physical self
  • journaling

To be enjoyed with abandon:

  • time with friends
  • sunrises and sunsets and time in nature
  • yoga and other exercise
  • your favorite self-care rituals
  • kisses from dogs (or cats or babies)
  • hope 

After a few weeks on the Divorce Detox Diet, you can expect to feel lighter and freer as you shed a little more of the weight you’re carrying from your past.

Good luck to you on your cleansing!

  1. Time with animals is excellent therapy 🙂 My two cats got me through the really bad days during my divorce. There were plenty of times where I just wanted to stay in bed and fester. Having my cats meant that I couldn’t be selfish and that another couple of beings depended on me for attention and food. Meditation is also extremely healing for the mind during turbulent times.
