What do you eat on a colon cleansing diet?
Those on a colon cleansing diet consume at least half their body
weight in ounces of pure water every day. The water must be purified
or filtered - tap water contains chlorine, fluoride and other toxins
known to compromise health.
Whole natural (organic where possible) foods help keep your body
cleaner and better nourished. Fresh, organic, seasonal fruits and
vegetables and unrefined whole grains are the best foods to consume
while on a colon cleansing diet, along with nuts, seeds and sprouts.
Cooking most vegetables decreases their vitamin content.
Fruits are an especially important part of a colon cleansing diet
- Fruits are solvents in the colon cleansing and acid fruits are
the strongest solvents. Juice fasting is another effective colon
What can't you eat on a colon cleansing diet?
As part of your cleansing diet, you'll want to avoid red meat, coffee,
sodas (event diet!), alcohol, sugary foods and fried foods. Staying
away from nutrient poor pre-packaged, highly processed and refined
foods will also help to reduce the amount of chemicals/toxins that
the body is exposed to.
