I first did this detox when I worked for the Doctors Penny in South Africa.
It is a great detox as you don't need to starve yourself :-)
It just takes a little self-control to get through the 2 weeks - but it is well worth it!
They have just launched a fantastic new wellness website called
The Wellness Brothers
and have written their first book:
I highly recommend anything from these guys!
(And no, no royalties are coming my way - :0))
Here's the detox:
Plenty of fresh, raw fruit and veg.
Big salads are great.
Loads of pure water.
Real fruit smoothies.
Stay away from:
(white bread, white pasta, white rice, cake, cookies etc)
Tea & Coffee
Don't combine protein and carbohydrates in one meal.
ie: Meat and veg = ok
Wholegrain carbs and veg = ok
Meat and potatoes = not ok
You might experience headaches for the first few days,
this is how you know the detox is working.
Drink more water to flush out the toxins and take a nap!
Keep this up for two weeks,
not only will you feel great,
all your cravings will have ceased as well
setting you up for a healthy 2011.
