Get protein from fish, beans and nuts. Broil or stew small portions of meat. No grills or fries!
Avoid refined carbs such as pasta, cakes, refined flour, carbonated drinks, deep-fried food, fast food, processed meats and mercury-loaded seafood like shellfish or crab.
Dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, beets, cabbage and cauliflower, fruits (papaya, lemon, mango) and herbs (ginger, garlic, parsley, cilantro) are must-haves in this diet.
7-day food cleanse
Essentially, the 7-day food cleanse diet focuses only on certain food types. Some people consume only freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juices. Others eat raw foods for a week, avoiding processed foods and meats.
Typically, this diet avoids meats, seafood, dairy products, simple carbs and processed foods. If cooked food is a must, brown rice is recommended.
Don’t starve yourself; simply eat the same kind of food whenever you feel hungry. Importantly, return to a normal routine by gradually introducing cooked foods.
