5-Day Detox Plan

5-day detox planThis 5-day detox plan is designed to be simple and effective.

The idea is to remove toxins from the diet, so that the body can naturally heal and flush them on its own. This plan provides a natural colon cleanse, a healthy rest for the digestive system, and a big boost for the immune system:

DAY 1: Initiate the detox
Morning: No coffee or caffeine. Try a detox herbal tea and drink 1 16 oz glass of room temp water with fresh lemon and cayenne pepper. Fill a water bottle to keep with you throughout the day.
Mid-morning: Your stomach is empty of all the morning liquids. Now is a good time to eat 1 serving (1 piece) of fruit. Stay away from bananas and choose something fibrous, like an apple, a pear, or a peach. Drink at least 16 oz of water between now and noon.
Noon: lunch should be a fresh green salad with lemon juice, cold pressed olive oil, salt and pepper. Add in as many other raw veggies as you like.
Afternoon: Another serving of fruit, this time with some raw almonds, makes a fine snack to take the edge off.
Evening: Dinner can be more cooked foods. Steam a fresh vegetable until just under crispy. Choose 1 serving of whole grain, like quinoa or amaranth, and you can eat either lean, free range chicken, or fish. Drink plenty of water. Top it off with another serving of fresh fruit.

Now you have a good idea of what foods you will be eating during the detox.

Day 2-4: Sustaining
No caffeine, no dairy, eggs, red meat, processed foods, or wheat. Start your mornings with the lemon and cayenne drink each day and make sure to drink enough water all day long. Divide your weight by 2 to find out how many ounces of water you need.

Avoid juice and soda. The exception is juice or smoothies made at home in place of a fruit serving. You can eat a banana only one of the next three days. Berries, like strawberries, blueberries and raspberries are excellent fruit choices and should be eaten everyday.

Day 5: Ending the Detox
Morning: Try a mint or spearmint tea instead of your normal detox tea. This will wake you up. Eat 1 organic apple.
Mid-morning: Eat another serving of fruit, with a few carrots, and a raw nut or seed, like pumpkin seeds or almonds.
Noon: A salad with lemon juice and olive oil for dressing, a plate of steamed vegetables, or quinoa/vegetable mix with sea salt and pepper will make a hardy lunch. Or, try a small baked potato stuffed with broccoli, sea salt and fresh tomato salsa.
Afternoon: A fruit smoothie, fresh vegetable juice, or a light, raw food snack will increase your energy for the rest of the day.
Evening: Eat what you want in small portions. Have at least one serving of raw or steamed vegetables or greens.

Now that you have completed the 5-day detox…..

It is fine to ease-up, slightly, on which foods you eat, but, why not continue to eat this way as long as you can? Make eating fresh, raw foods a habit, and make processed foods and sugars a rare exception in your diet. That way you can maintain you great results and superior energy, and ditch the caffeine and other food addictions.

  7. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
