Ok, so we’re now ready for the 48 hour Detox.
REMEMBER: Your Goal is two-fold;
DETOX JUICE RECIPES:
Lemon & Ginger:
2 cups of filtered Water
½ punnet of Strawberries (wash well and individually – most sprayed fruit!)
6 leaves of Bok Choy
2 cups filtered water
Pinch of Parsley
4 leaves of Chard
For better results, add 10g of fibre to TWO of your juices, AND / OR Alkalising Greens (both in stock at the gym).
This is not quite as exciting as the Juices, but, ensure you have 2 STEAMED vegetable meals as follows:
2 cups of Broccoli
1-2 Garlic cloves
6 leafy Greens (Spinach; Kale; Bok Choy etc)
Squeeze of Lemon
Wash your food before eating to eliminate any ‘sprays’ they’ve been exposed too.
Blenders are better than juicers because the ‘chunky’ bits are better roughage.
For the Protein Lovers:
If you are struggling with a 100% Carb Plan, you will need to add some protein and fats to avoid symptoms like lethargy and headaches.
Add some seafood (boiled is best), but remember for this 24 hour period to keep the servings light.
Nuts are another option, but PLEASE chew them very well! Nuts are quite hard to break down, and we want to Rest your Digestive System, so chew very well!
What About Supplements? The Best Bang for their Buck!
Supplements I recommend due to their potential benefits for their price are as follows:
· Multivitamin (morning and night)
· Vitamin C 1000mg (AFTER lunch and DINNER)
· Omega 3 1000mg (with your meal before exercise; in conjunction with flaxseed if you are supplementing the extra fiber!)
· Zinc (take it with your Omega 3)
· Glutamine (10g three times a day with meals. Great for your stomach lining, and may help prevent any muscle break down. Pure powder form is best ie no added flavouring / sugars).
- ALKALISING GREENS! It’s a chlorophyl powder which I have in stock here. Let me know if interested - $35 tub will last you 50 serves!
- PSYLLIUM HUSK for added fibre. Again have a powdered form at the gym in stock if you wish. $30 for 100 serves!
Foods to Avoid:
Absolutely, positively avoid the following foods because they are very common Food Intolerances:
Can I Go Longer?
In 48 hours your System will most like ly not recover back to full health, BUT, I honestly believe you’ll achieve better results and adherence if you stick to just a 48 hour Detox and repeating in a weeks time if needed. Remember, the last thing we want is to stress our system by cutting calories to a point where our metabolism slows down, so again, stick to 48 hours and repeat in a week or fortnights time as needed.
So, for 48 hours you’re eating fresh fruit and Veges, with a little boiled / steamed protein as required. The more greens the better because they will alkalise your gut, and are easy to digest. Eat as much greens as you wish, and you should notice by the end of the day your pee is clear enough for Bear Grylls to drink!
Happy Shopping over the Weekend!
