Starting a 5 day detox diet is easy and I'll show you how easy it can be.
You can make your own detox diet plan if you want to, it's as easy as going to the supermarket and buying fruits and veggies!
In the world we live in today, our body has to constantly cope with:
And that is only the beginning!
Two hundred years ago our ancestors did not have to worry too much about cleansing themselves, but they did it anyway.
They ate better and were a healthier bunch in general, because they did not have all of the unhealthy products we have today.
A detox diet is not enough to improve your health.
The best thing you can do is to start improving your normal diet, but a detoxification diet like this will definitely boost your health.
Today's goal is to remove unhealthy foods and drinks from your diet. They are taxing your digestive system and they have to go!
That means almost everything that comes in a package or in a box, and anything containing:
And I bet if you look at the label on your personal care products you'll find that they contain a multitude of harmful chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) for example.
Did you know that SLS is a detergent used in the cleaning industry? It irritates the skin and gets absorbed into your body where it does long-term damage if used often. So for your personal care products, stop using them and go out and buy natural alternatives.
When you go out and buy a better shampoo, make sure you read the label and look what's in it. If you can't pronounce it, you probably should not use it. The simpler the shampoo is the better.
Alright, now you should have almost eliminated the bad stuff. Don't worry if you haven'. You still have time to do it on the second day, but that's it, no more slacking on this 5 day detox diet!
Are you wondering what you should eat now that you've eliminated all of your foods?
No problem! Today we start adding the healthy stuff. And I am mainly talking about fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. You can eat and buy as much fruit and vegetables as you want.
You can eat the fruits as they are or you can get creative and make fruit salads, smoothies, purées or whatever wets your taste buds.
As for the vegetables, you can make vegetable broths, freshly squeezed juices or just eat them raw in a salad with some nuts.
Don't go overboard with the nuts. Limit yourself to around two handfuls of nuts per day, otherwise you will be getting too much fat in your diet and this will tax your digestive system.
Buy all your produce fresh, raw and organic if possible. If you live in an area where organic produce is not available then buy the next best thing.
Avoid canned, frozen and packaged products at all costs, these are highly processed and are not particularly healthy.
And if you want to, you can eat potatoes, rice and quinoa, but try to keep those to a minimum.
Now you're realizing that this really isn't that hard and eating all those yummy fruits is quite rewarding.
When you eat a large amount of fruit you get a lot of water, because fruits are packed with water and the water is very clean and healthy.
Nonetheless, I recommend that you drink half you bodyweight in ounces every day. So if you're 150 pounds, you should drink at least 75 ounces of pure water.
Water is very important in because it helps transport the toxins out of your system.
Keep experimenting with different fruits and vegetables. Even if you do not like some vegetables, eat them anyway, I dare you! :)
Phew! Already on the fourth day are we?
You're almost done with this 5 day detox diet. Today I want you to try to add some fresh juices, that means squeezing the juice yourself and drinking it immediately.
If you do not have a juicer then considering buying one. If you feel like you don't need a juicer then carry onward without the juices, no problem!
I want you to replace two of your meals with freshly squeezed juices.
You can blend any fruits and vegetables that you like. Try not to skip the vegetables.
They can taste bad, but they are vital for your body!
You're almost done! If you've made it this far then congratulations!
Today you'll be on cruise control eating your fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds alongside your two daily juices.
That's it! A 5 day detox diet like this will help open your eyes to how easy it is to eat healthy and give your body a rest by eating foods that nature intended for us.
If you want to do a deeper detox cleanse, improve your health, and get even more energy, you may want to throw in a herbal colon cleanse.
One of the best ways to detoxify your body is through a safe, and completely natural colon cleanse.
You can also buy a professionally formulated herbal colon cleanse, which has been formulated to effectively and safely eliminate toxins from your body.
I've done a lot of research on the best colon cleansers, and I have to say, there are a lot of bad ones out there. The one I think is best - and that I recommend - is DrFloras colon cleanse.
They even offer a long money-back guarantee in case it doesn't work for you.
I'm very careful with what I recommend. I only recommend products that are 100% natural, safe, and effective, which is why I really like DrFloras.
