First things first—even a beginner’s detox requires you to cut some things out of your diet. In this case, it’s dairy, sugar, meat, caffeine, gluten, processed foods, and alcohol. These items tend to be stressful on your digestive system, cause acidity in the body, and prevent detoxification. A great and easy way to reset, is eating light to heavy for improved digestion and clearing of the digestive tract, and focusing on whole foods.

Since juice doesn’t have fiber, it doesn’t have the same digestion needs as regular food. Nutrients are more easily absorbed by your body.
Fresh juices don’t burden your body with digestion needs, and gives your body time to eliminate toxins and detox itself.
Each morning of your detox, start off with a glass of warm water with lemon and ginger to help alkalize your system and kick-start your digestive system.
After that try to stay on schedule, aim to drink a juice every 2 to 2.5 hours.
For some people, 6 to 8 juices per day may feel like a lot. However, if you space out your juices over 12 hours, finishing your last juice roughly 2 hours before your fall asleep - your body will thank you. Skipping juices will likely leave you hungry later and may result in your blood sugar crashing. Even if you are not hungry, when it is time for your next consecutive juice, drink up.

2 green apples, cut in half
