3 day action plan
Ready for a quick reboot before the holidays? In just seventy-two hours, you can jump-start your way to a healthier body. "Nutrients found in colorful plant food drive the process of liver detoxification." These dishes give your digestive system a rest from processed foods and common allergens. Loading up on fibrous fruits and vegetables helps remove toxins, which are eliminated by binding to fiber. Skip your morning coffee and evening glass of wine (both overwork the liver, the organ we're aiming to support); opt for water or herbal tea instead.
Easy Does It
This mini detox is based on a streamlined menu of "big batch" meals so that you can front-load all the work. yes, you'll be having the same breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the cleanse, but three days of clean eating " is just the boost your body needs to support digestion and detoxification and to eliminate unwanted cravings."
As much as possible, take a media fast: curtail time spent surfing the web, watching television, and texting and emailing, to give your mind a much needed break, too.
Focus on how you feel by building reflective downtime into your day, whether that's meditating, writing in a journal, or taking a walk in nature.
