I'm a firm believer in the power of a detox. No, not that crazy lemonade + maple syrup + cayenne nonsense - a detox that simply removes the unhealthy elements from your day and gives your body a chance to repair itself. For me, this means removing alcohol and caffeine from my diet, getting a solid 8 hours of sleep every night, and eating extra clean. I typically do 3-5 day detoxes. During my undergraduate years, it was a necessity after a rough midterm or finals week.
Here's the plan I follow:
I personally don't feel hungry during this detox because I am so well hydrated and portion size is generally not restricted. The great things about this plan is that it takes virtually no time at all to prepare and requires very few "weird" ingredients. Chia seeds, kale, and berries are all considered "super foods" and do awesome things for your health.
