Detox

” Dieting does not have to be a chore, my 7-Day Detox Plan shares a felicitous diet life with you”

Who says body detoxification program must farmish or eat only bland diet snack bars?

If I go on diet, I’ll take less amount, less oil and less salt food, but definately normal meals. No doubt, we have to forgo some foods such as fried food, processed snack food and alcohol. However, to go with strict liquid or apple-only meals for days isn’t my option so far.

Some of the food are essential in detox diet to support increase of elimination from the body, for instances, yogurt which contains friendly bacteria (acidophilus) that helps to improve digestion and cleanse colon; lemon helps to flush out toxin in the body and aid disgestion; barley helps to reduce body water retention; and, green bean improves slimming effect. So, I included all these in my detox program.

I did not skip any meal during detoxification. Instead… I took 5 meals a day, with smaller portion in each meal. Food which I took during these 7 days were flavoursome ones. However, the total calorie intake is less than 1200 kcal in a day!
