Consuming A Liquid Detox Diet Is Anything But Enjoyable

When it comes to giving the body a much needed rest, and allowing it to revitalize and re-energize, the best, simplest, way to get the job done is with a liquid detox diet. I know what you’re probably thinking, “This guy’s talking about fasting. I hate fasting. I’m outta here.”

Before you take off, just know that, yes, I am talking about fasting, but that’s just one part liquid detox diet will suckof a liquid diet. Here’s a couple of things you need to realize about detoxifying the body – it isn’t comfortable or enjoyable.

Anyone that tries to sell you that line, is looking to sell you something else as well. I’ve done a number of detoxes over the last ten years, and I’ve enjoyed none of them. The idea is not to feel warm and fuzzy about the process; the idea is to get the most benefit from that discomfort.

I mean, if you are going to be uncomfortable, why not make sure you’re going to get the most out of it, right? Fasting is one aspect of liquid detoxification. In our world, here at www.detoxcleansingdiet.org, we see fasting as only drinking liquids, every day, for a max out period of three days.

Of course, you can do whatever you’d like to do; but we think that three days is more than enough time to get the value provided by deciding to skip eating solid food for 72 hours; and only feeding the body vitamins and minerals through a liquid form.

So how do you fast? It’s quite simple. You can drink structured water for the duration of your fast. Structured water is taking filtered water, and applying a few elements to it that causes the water to become a dynamic property; and not your standard H2O.

You can add a little Himalayan sea salt, just a pinch, and a squeeze, or slice, of lemon. Lemons bring a ton of value to the game, including helping the liver function at a high level. There are other ways you structure water, like adding powdered greens.

Green drinks have become a staple in cleansing diets over the past 10 years. They’re easy to make, and have a ton of nutrients and vitamins. Of course, noting is quite as nutritious as a fresh juice; made from scratch right in front of you – but not everyone has access to a juicer, or health store that offers juicing.

In those instance, buying a high quality mixed green drink will work perfectly. Another way you can fast is with green herbal tea. When you eliminate the sugar, and all the other additives, that tend to take away more than they provide, you have an excellent liquid nutrient that’ easy to make, as well as consume.

One level below these options, for fasting anyway, is the mixed drinks; like you find with The Master Cleanse. This drink contains lemons, and maple syrup, for the most part, and is consumed for as little as seven days, or as long as 30.

Since The Master Cleanse can be done in a variety of ways, we don’t label it a fast; although it could be. If you decided to drink it, as it was originally created, then we suggest you only do so for three days. Although everyone’s genetic make-up is different, fasting after three days, in our experience, tends to affect your body adversely.

What doesn’t affect your body after the same period of time, is the second half to a liquid detox; and that’s a cleanse. A cleanse is made up of all the liquids we just covered, and also contains green smoothies, and fruit smoothies as well.

A smoothies, which is a blend of whole foods, is, essentially, drinking a bowl of fruits, or vegetable, or in some cases – both! Why cleansing can last for as many as 30 days, is because you are consuming whole foods – they happened to be blended into a baby food-type texture.

With juicing, precious minerals and nutrients are discarded in the process. These elements are critical to helping the body maintain it’s ability to function at a high level. When these elements are not fed to the body regularly, the body starts pulling what it needs from other areas.

Once this begins, breakdown, and organ malfunction begins to take place. If you let that process continue, eventually it turns into cellular malfunction; and this causes disease. This is why we suggest fasting for short periods of time, which your body can easily handle; and cleansing for a longer period of time, like 7-10 days, which again – your body can easily handle.

However, in either case, because you are not eating, there will be discomfort. You will be annoyed, irritable, and tough to be around for a few days, but that pain is what gives the body rejuvenation. Take the next few days off, and start a cleanse or fast – your body will thank you for it.

Using An Apple Juice Cleanse Fast To Lose Weight Mistake

The juice fast is a great way to detox the system, restore your digestive system, and help to create balance in your inner environment.  Juice fasts have been shown to alleviate arthritis, constipation, headaches, and even anemia – but what it was never meant to be, which is what it seems to be associated with today, is a weight loss tool.

Sure you can lose weight with a juice fast, but losing weight is a by-product of all the other benefits it provides. The issue that arises when you use a juice fast to drop a few pounds, is that once you get off the fast, and especially fi you go back to the same diet you had before the fast, the weight is steadily going to creep it’s way back onto your frame.

When you focus on a fast, the juices and water flush out toxins form your system. However, after a few days of returning to a normal diet, the water that was flushed out returns. So the 10 pounds you lost, over the course of two or three weeks, will make it’s way back if you don’t start exercising or adapting a new diet.

The intelligent thing to do would be to do both, you would think right? Unfortunately that isn’t the case with most people living here in the U.S. But if you were to ask someone you know who was brave enough to get on a fast for a few days, what their experience was like, they would most likely say it was horrible. They would say they were hungry, and couldn’t wait to eat the minute their fast was over.

I experienced this myself to be honest. I remember being on a fast for four days, and I was so sick by day four, I couldn’t take it anymore and that’s because I did the whole process completely wrong. At the time I thought I was spot on, but looking back I laugh at just how idiotic I was.

I was juicing everything in one day, and leaving it in plastic container sin the fridge so all I had to do was grab a juice and keep going. That is exactly what you DO NOT want to do when you’re juicing. A juice needs to be consumed immediately after it’s done. The longer it hits the air, the more oxygen attacks it, and destroys the nutrients it has. To make it worse I was putting all this juice into plastic containers. The juice will start to strip the plastic within the container, and some of that plastic ends up in the juice itself, which you take into you system when you drink it.

Even if had done that part correctly, I would’ve still had to have dealt with all the hunger pangs; and that was because I didn’t prepare for the fast, and I didn’t drink the amount of water I was supposed to – which would’ve kept the hunger feeling away. Before getting on a fast, and remember, although many people see a cleanse as a fast, here at detoxcleansingdiet.org – we don’t. A cleanse is made up of green foods and drinks, including juices, and smoothies. A fast is just juices and structured water – nothing else.

So in our little world, there is no such thing as a juice cleanse, only a juice fast or juice detox. Now that we cleared that up, you want to make sure you eat only water-based foods leading up to your fast – at least three days before you start. You also want to make a good portion of those foods organic apples – and yes, eat the skin.

Drink two tablespoons of olive oil on the night before the fast, which helps with digestion, and you want to break the fast with fresh orange juice. You follow this routine for three months in a row, and you are detoxed for the year. Understand this is just one way to detox. There are many more, and each provides it’s own unique set of benefits.

Detoxing the body is important, for a whole host of reasons. The easiest way to think about it is to see your body as your car. If you aren’t maintaining your car properly, then it’s going to break down, and you may need to buy a whole new car altogether. Well, you don’t get the same chances with your body. If you let your body break down, you may not get a second shot at making things work.

My father had a ton of opportunities to get his life back on track, but just refused to take the simple steps to requiring health in his life, and it cost him. He passed away at an age most people are getting ready to enjoy their retirement years. And just so that it hits home – this was after years of punishing his body with all the wrong stuff. The human body is like a miracle. It takes a tremendous amount of abuse and keeps on going. Rather than use that as an excuse to keep punishing your body, why not harness that power to live well into your old age, instead of just getting old.
