During your detox your practitioner will recommend a diet based on your individual requirements. The diet will ensure that you are eating the right foods for your body in order to maximise the detoxification process.
Ensure you eat one portion of protein per meal, preferably organic and free range, with a maximum of two serves of red meat per week.
When shopping always look for seasonal fruit and vegetables. Farmers Markets and local produce stalls are an excellent way to source fresh seasonal produce. Its always preferable to buy organic when possible.
Fresh vegetable juice makes a great addition to your detox diet. If you own a juicer try juicing carrots, green apples, ginger, beetroot, celery and lemons.
Avoid packaged and processed foods.
Avoid foods containing artificial colours, flavours, additives, stabilisers, flavour enhancers, and hydrogenated fats. Read the labels to check.
Read ingredients list to ensure there is no saturated fat, gluten or sugar in your detox food.
Choose organic soy milk made from whole beans, and organic rice milk is also a great option.
Plan your meals and shopping in advance to avoid impulse purchases of foods that aren’t on your shopping list. Never shop when you’re hungry.
Before you start your detox remove as many ‘avoid foods’ from your home as possible to make it easier to stick to your guns and complete your detox successfully.
Instead of meeting friends for a drink or coffee, meet for a walk. You can still chat and be social while avoiding unhealthy food and getting exercise.
Ensure a good night’s sleep.
