Resources for a Detox Diet


So I’ve been at it for seven days now: five days of detox regimen followed by a weekend of fasting.

In my first post about detox, I said I’d share any references I have with you about how I go about this ritual of detoxification.

Really, I’ve just read a lot of articles and saved them in a binder, then adapted a regimen that works well for me. (To find out what I ate each day, you can link to each of the posts: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, and the last one called “Juice Fast!“)

My primary sources for articles about detox, including guidelines for regimens, are Taste for Life magazine and Natural Health magazine, both of which I pick up for free at my local natural/organic food stores (Nature’s Market and Harvest Health Foods).

Here are some other resources I’ve come across in my reading, which might help you if you’re interested in starting your own ritual:
