The Rest of your Meals for Day 1
With medical supervision, ask your doctor or dietitian if you can replace your meals entirely with a green smoothie, green salads and simple clean carbs like quinoa, amaranth, brown rice, yams or sweet potatoes. Eliminate all processed foods.
For most people, a simple meal swap of one green smoothie for one meal is all that's needed, while choosing healthier food options for the rest of the day.
Watch out for sugar binges, processed foods, soda, and alcohol.
Beverages for the Day
The choices for beverages would only be:
- Lemon infused water
- Herbal teas or green tea (Matcha Green Tea)
- Fresh or Filtered Water
No need to buy “energy drinks” as they are mostly sugar.
Enjoy the rest of the day by drinking more water, smoothies and eating more salad.
