When the 'weed' stage of your detox is complete, the focus shifts to the 'seed' element; this transitional stage carrying you from detox to a lower-tox lifestyle.

It gradually 'sows' the seeds of good health, and takes you onto a healthy eating plan that you can keep up during the year ahead. This is much easier to achieve if you have approached the first weeks of your detox as a pathway to a healthier future.

So, if you do feel like adding caffeine back into your day, try to keep tabs on your intakes. Ask for just one-shot of coffee in coffee bars (most put two shots into cappuccinos and lattes) and keep caffeine-containing drinks for the mornings so that they don't disrupt your sleep patterns.
