The Ultimate Guide to Fasting: Cleanse Your Body Naturally


Fasting is a powerful way to give your body a break from processed foods and other potentially harmful habits. By following a cleanse, you can effectively eliminate toxins, allowing your body to better absorb nutrients and function optimally. Here's your ultimate guide to fasting, featuring wholesome fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, and more.


Why Cleanse?


A cleanse helps to flush out toxins and reboot your body's system. It's a natural and effective way to enhance nutrient absorption, improve digestion, and boost overall health.


Getting Started: Gentle Transition


For first-time cleansers, it's crucial to ease into the process. Start by eliminating heavy foods like red meat, pork, and fast foods. Gradually incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your meals, and drink more juices and smoothies. Jumping straight into raw food cleansing can shock your system, so take it slow.


Best Foods for Cleansing


Vegetables:

- Kale, arugula, cabbage, beets, sprouts, lettuce, dandelion greens, cilantro

- Cucumber (hydrating and cleansing)

- Lemons (detoxifying, great for gut cleansing and weight loss)

- Microgreens aka sprouts (nutrient-packed)


Fruits:

- Frozen fruits (for smoothies & smoothie bowls)

- Melons (excellent for cleansing and deeply nourishing)

- Cherries (quick, easy, and delicious)

- Apples (great with nut butter as a snack)

- Daily lemon water (detoxifies and removes phlegm/mucous)
