A childhood memory and an update on mercury and lead

Hopefully I don't date myself with this memory!

When I was a child we got a carton of milk and a packet of crackers during the school day.  We could register for regular milk or chocolate milk.  I think it was all 2% back then.  But what I remember most was when you had chocolate milk, you had to shake the carton.  The chocolate flavoring separated from the milk and would sit like syrup in the bottom of the carton if you didn't shake it up well. 

I don't think it is necessary anymore but I can't seem to break the habit.  I've never liked the flavor or regular milk.  So when I do drink milk, it is chocolate.  Sorry, I'm getting off target.  My doctor changed my detox method for my heavy metal issue.  For these three months, I am taking a supplement that needs to be added to water.  There are four flavors, chocolate, berry, mint and gluten free strawberry kiwi.  "Dynamic Fruits & Greens" with Superfruitox (TM) Proprietary blend of certified organic super fruits: acai, goji, mangosteen, noni, and pomegranate.  One serving is equal to 20+ servings of fruits and vegetables.

I thought "Chocolate, you can't go wrong with chocolate flavor."  Oh I was SO VERY WRONG!  It tasted like burnt chocolate mixed with water as directed.  The doctor had told me that I could mix it with other things including yogurt.  I have learned to like some yogurts but I could not imagine adding burnt chocolate to them and still be able to eat it.  So I mixed it with milk.  (I started with one serving to make sure that it was okay.)  It was palatable and I mixed the rest of the container of milk.  Since it is a high fiber detox, it does separate as it sits and like those days of old; I need to shake the carton. 

I need to admit that I am a little bit afraid of the mint.  The berry flavor actually wasn't too bad.  I just needed to block out drinking grit.  I've been eating between 1500-1800 calories a day.  I should have been losing weight but my body just would not drop the weight.  I think the antioxidant blends in these detox are helping because I'm seeing the scale drop a little bit.  Notice that I said "a little bit" so that you don't get too excited.  My doctor has indirectly told me that if I can drop the weight, that the heavy metals will clear out easier.  I am eating fine because my cholesterol is almost down to normal without any meds.  I know that they would like to see me 20-30 pounds lighter.  Who knows!
