Our recipes for detox diet places an emphasis on juice fasting.
Your body can absorb these vitamins, minerals, and enzymes much more effectively when you fast because you are resting your body's digestive system during this process.
The length of your planned fast will determine the length of preparation. The longer the fast, the more preparation you should make.
If you decide to go for a one day juice fast not much preperation is required. It does not have to be complicated and should be relatively easy for most people.
If you have never fasted before we suggest you try out a one day fast. As you learn to listen to your body you can slowly add more days in your next fast.
For longer fasts like 3 day to 7 day fasts preparation becomes more important.
We suggest you start eating smaller meals in the days leading up to the detox diet recipes. You should also increase your intake of raw fruits and vegetables during this time.
In the days leading up to the juice fast, reduce your intake of meats and dairy products.
If you can manage to consume up to 80% of your
diet leading up to the fast in the form of raw food this will start
alkalizing your body which will mean that you will experience fewer
detoxification symptoms during the fast.
It can be very helpful if you have a group of friends who routinely fast.
For longer fasts they can be a great support system to provide encouragement and ideas during your fast.
Also clean up your fridge and kitchen cabinets from any unwanted foods that may tempt you to break your fast.
To prepare for your detox diet recipes you will have to stock up on plenty fresh organic vegetables as well as low-sugar fruits like lemons and limes.
Get yourself plenty apples, a few lemons and a good number of carrots.
The green veggies are very important for your detox recipes so make sure you buy enough-
In addition we suggest you make sure you have the following supplement available:
Centrifugal Juicers are the most popular juicers today and generally these juicers are also more affordable.
Centrifugal juicers are good at juicing most fruit and vegetable and can do it at a good speed.
One of the disadvantages of centrifugal juicers is that they are not effective at juicing green leafy vegetables like spinach.
They also have a more difficult time extracting high yields of juice from wheatgrass and parsley and similar grasses and herbs.
