The beginning of a new year seems to be the time that many people enjoy doing cleanses. OK, “enjoy” might be a strong word. It’s the time most people…do cleanses. Example: Gina Rodriguez is in the middle of a liver detox cleanse, and we feel her pain. Rodriguez has Hashimoto’s Disease, an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid gland, and subsequently, the liver.
So even though the liver cleanse is probably super beneficial for Rodriguez, it’s also clearly the absolute worst.
The Jane the Virgin star posted a photo to Instagram that has us LOL-ing, because it’s completely relatable for those of us who have ever done a cleanse. She looks adorable, as always, but it’s obvious that she’s 100% ready to eat like a normal human being again.
“Day three of my Liver detox cleanse and I haven’t cut anyone, taken out cars because of road rage or messed up my cleanse,” she captioned the photo. “💪🏽💪🏽 But this is definitely the look I give when someone asks me if I want a slice of pizza. 5 more days people, 5 mo days for a healthier liver and a slice of pizza. #Detoxface”
In an interview with Health back in August, the actress explained what it’s like to live with Hashimoto’s Disease, and how it became a blessing rather than a curse.
She only has five more days to go of the liver cleanse! Which, TBH, is so many days. But she’s a warrior and can pretty much conquer anything.
