EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK How could you not love something called the aFast Track Detox Dieta? The thing is, though, no pain, no...loss. This cleanse requires a fastaitas hiding in plain sight right there in the title! But donat worry; youall be prepared for it. Author Anne Louise Gittleman (who also wrote the bestselling The Fat Flush Plan) recommends a week of eating what she calls aliver-loving foodsa (such as lemons, garlic, leafy greens, artichokes, beets) and acolon-loving foodsa (like fiber-rich apples, ground flaxseed, or berries), along with lean protein and small amounts of heart-healthy fats, to prepare the body for a one-day juice fast (which, after The Master Cleanse, sounds downright easy). Youall also eat these alovinga foods for 3 days after the fast. The juice fast consists of a day of drinking one cup of a amiraclea combination of fresh orange juice, fresh lemon juice, cranberry juice, nutmeg, ginger, and stevia (a plant-based sweetener) every hour, with a cup of water in between. The combo is meant to stabilize blood sugar and reduce hunger cravings, which is exactly what you want when faced with a day of liquids. For those with busy lives, kids, and demanding jobs, the aFast Track Detox Dieta may be the easiest to follow, as it requires the least preparation of the detoxes listed in this guide. If you go out to a restaurant, you can ask the waiter to prepare a lean chicken breast or lovely piece of fish (lots of garlic!) with a side of lightly steamed veggies. Itas also easy to bring snacks along in the car or to work: just cut up lots of colorful fruit, toss it with some lemon juice, throw it in a container, and go! Have your kids pick out their favorite fruits and always have a healthful snack bag prepped when you pick them up from schoolayouall probably be hungry by mid-afternoon as well, so you can all share in the goodness.
