The Master Cleanse.

John and I have been thinking about trying a DETOX. (Wow, even the typed word looks scary.) Not as a weight-loss tactic, but for cleansing. You could say we're taking spring cleaning to a new level. We're looking to start in May, which seems like the perfect time because I'll have finished exams and he will be finished with the MCAT. (Another word that looks scary typed.) The idea is to remove stress, anxiety and toxins from our bods. So, what do you think? Have you ever tried one? I'd love to hear any and all recommendations. Thanks!

Oh I love to cleanse! Try this one!

Avoiding all refined carbohydrates including white flour and sugar
Avoiding all foods with chemical preservatives and flavorings including foods that contain toxic elements (such as heavy metals, e.g. tuna)
Drinking at least one to two liters of pure water daily to help the body clean and detoxify itself
Eating fruit and vegetables that are ripe, fresh and as free of chemical fertilizers as possible
Minimizing tea, coffee, dairy products, and alcohol
Boosting your health and vitality with a diet rich in organic, ripe fruits and vegetables.
Eating protein such as white fish or white meats with each meal

But there's so much good local food in May! Surely January would be a better, I'm not a fan. I get really crabby if I don't eat regular meals. Of course, less cookies and ice cream and crackers and cheese would probably be a good move!

I know! It will be hard. A sacrifice... but its only for a week or so. Not the whole month of may!
