As I’ve always said, cleansing should be considered a verb, not a noun. What I mean by that is that you should incorporate long-term shifts in your lifestyle, which are far more affective in cleansing the body on a continual and deeper basis rather than short-term “detoxes.” That being said, this “one day cleanse” is about helping you jump-start the process of getting on track with long-term lifestyle changes, or getting back on track, for those of you who have already been changing aspects of your lifestyle
For someone new to the program, incorporate these guidelines below and those outlined in The Detox Diet Solution slowly and over time in order to avoid any drastic side effects. If you do too much too fast, your eliminating organs (liver, colon etc.) will be totally overwhelmed and overworked. This fast approach could lead to nausea, headaches and breakouts as your body begins to circulate the toxins that were previously tucked away and protected in fat. Short-term programs don’t really get out the deep toxicity anyway- think of how long you’ve been eating a certain way. Can it all magically leave the body in 3 days? No! Eat right to pull the toxins out of your fat, shed the fat, and feel fabulous for the long-term!
