Be sure you are mentally, physically, and emotionally ready to commit to this type of program. This is not a quick or temporary fix. It is meant to be the transition to a healthy lifestyle modification, which takes time to learn and maintain. You can make this shift successfully by taking steps to prepare yourself and create an environment conducive to this healthy lifestyle.
If this is your first detox diet, keep in mind that events such as holidays and other social gatherings may make the process more challenging. We suggest you choose the timing of your diet carefully for optimal success.
Document your starting weight and your Symptom Survey score so you can benchmark your progress. Regulate your schedule so that you can get eight hours of sleep each night as your body adjusts to the dietary changes.
You may temporarily experience cravings and your mood may fluctuate. Make sure you have a network of support at home and at work by talking to your family, friends and coworkers about the diet ahead of time.
While we encourage you to take the initiative to learn to cook, or shop organic, we know that it’s not always possible. The important thing is making the right choices for you – for example, selectively buying certain organic vegetables to minimize your exposure to pesticides. You can refer to Dr. Morrison’s book, Cleanse Your Body, Clear Your Mind, for more guidance.
