Most of us are guilty of over-indulgence in fatty, sugary foods from time to time. Following a safe detox program is one of the best ways to quickly release trapped fats and sugar, and increase your health and energy levels. I believe almost everyone can benefit from a safe detox. It’s one of the best ways to remain healthy in today’s world. Not one of us is immune to environmental toxins and most of us can’t escape to a remote, unpolluted habitat.
Detoxification is one of the oldest and most effective healing methods known to man. Hippocrates, “the Father of Medicine,” Galen, Paracelsus and other great physicians throughout history prescribed detoxification. It was even practiced by Plato and Socrates. Cleansing has been helping heal people for over 20,000 years!
Start your detox on a Friday and follow it through the weekend. Follow up with 1 to 4 days of fresh, whole foods (no processed junk!) for the best results.
Fat & Sugar Detox Nutritional Plan (a 3 day plan):
For 3 days:
On rising: take a glass of lemon juice and water in the morning for a quick liver detox.
Breakfast: have a glass of blood sugar balancing blueberry juice from the health food store. Look for brands with no added sugar: Blueberries help to enhance insulin sensitivity -- the body’s ability to use sugar as energy.
Mid-morning: have a Potassium juice. Juice: 3 carrots, 3 stalks celery, ½ bunch spinach, and ½ bunch parsley. This juice is ideal for cleansing because it is high in antioxidants, and has diuretic properties to flush out trapped fats, sodium and sugar.
Lunch: have another Potassium juice. Or, take 1 tsp. green superfood powder (like barley grass or spirulina) in a glass of apple juice.
Mid-afternoon: have a cup of green tea for extra fat burning.
Dinner: Break your juice fast for your evening meal only, but keep it very light—have baked seafood with brown rice and green salad with light dressing; or have a vegetarian stir-fry with brown rice and the veggies of your choice.
Before Bed: mix 1 tsp. nutritional yeast in warm water. Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of B vitamins and chromium, a trace mineral for blood sugar balance.
