2 week intense detox PHASE 1

Are you ready?

Give your liver a holiday, allow the detox to kick start your weightloss and clean up the accumulated fats in your tissues and liver

Without a doubt you will lose a lot of weight on phase 1, most of it will be water weight. A lot of foods that we consume reacts to our body and increases our water weight, highlighting the appearance of cellulite, the mid section bulge and general overall puffiness

Phase 1 is designed to eliminate all the nasties that have crept in our diet over the years and now we are taking it back to basic

I would recommend doing this for 2 weeks to give yourself a kick start, maybe pushing it to 3 maybe 4 weeks but no more

Phase 1 is also good to go back to when you have been on holiday, or you have that special event coming up

When prepping your food make extra so you have lunch sorted for the following day, I often do this to save me cooking for the next 2 days, just keep it simple and use the herbs to add flavour
