Purification Diet (Page 1 of 2)
The purpose of the purification diet is to totally flush toxins from the digestive system, as well as rejuvenate all organs involved in the digestive process. The purification process will increase the efficiency of organ function, and lower blood pressure, blood glucose levels, and resting heart rate.
Who should consider this diet protocol?
Anyone who is in good health, overweight and beginning a weight loss diet. It is also beneficial for those who are experiencing intestinal distress.
Who should NOT consider this diet protocol?
Anyone who is an insulin-dependent diabetic, pregnant, has a liver, gallbladder, kidney, or cardiovascular problem. If you have questions or concerns, you should consult with your personal physician before beginning any diet program.
Note: Always check with your doctor before you begin any diet of exercise program.
Adjusting to a lower caloric intake may produce certain symptoms such as anxiety, sleeplessness, coldness, hunger, nausea, fatigue, headache, muscle ache, and possible constipation. Most people do not experience any of these symptoms, but those who do usually find that these symptoms disappear within 12 to 24 hours.
The purification diet restricts solid foods for two to three days. DO NOT continue the purification diet protocol for more than three days. During this time you will only consume fluids in the form of juices, water, and soup broth.
During the purification period, follow a low-intensity exercise routine. For example, walk 30 minutes per day at 65% to 75% of your maximum heart rate. DO NOT perform any type of interval or weight lifting training because they promote glycogen store depletions and can lead to fatigue.
