If you want to do a relatively easy, simple fast that doesn’t interrupt your normal activities and really clears out the toxins pretty quickly this is the fast for you!
It’s called a fast because, by eating only apples, the body is fooled into a fasting mode, where it starts dumping toxins from the liver, kidneys, and other internal organs, into the bloodstream, where they can be leeched by the pectin.
The pectin leeches toxins from the blood stream and intestines and will leech anything with food value so do not eat anything else and do not take vitamins at this time. An apple diet cleansing fast can also help reduce cholesterol.
The fast works over three days to clear toxins and stored-up fat from the body, and will leave you feeling refreshed.
Things You’ll Need:
• 20 organic apples
Step 1. Prepare for the fast by eating healthy and light at least 3 days or the day prior to your start. Most people want to eat a heavy, big meal the night before a fast; however, this can be detrimental to your health once you start, as your body is shocked by a sudden reduction in calories. Have a green salad the night before to brush your system clear and prepare your body.
Step 2. Eat nothing but organic apples (preferred), red delicious or yellow, for three full days. (Minimum of 5 a day)
Step 3. Drink WARM water all day long. This is key! Be sure to drink lots of warm water so that the toxins can be carried out of you more rapidly. Cold water isn’t good for digestion and elimination – but warm water stimulates peristalsis
Step 4. Pay attention to how you feel during this fast and try keeping a journal or posting updates on this FB event page as to what bubbles up and needs your attention. Remember that you are cleansing yourself of all unwanted toxins: emotional, mental and physical! Be kind to yourself and let any emotions that have been pent up be leeched out of you along with all the other toxins. Let it all go, let it all out! (Maybe even a before and after pic of your face. The face shows it all)
Step 5. On the night of the third night take 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil to aid in digestion and facilitate your movements following the fast. When you don’t eat any fat for days, your liver and gallbladder store up bile. When you flood your system with fat (olive oil) all at once like that – your gallbladder and liver release all the stored bile and push out the cholesterol stones that have formed.
Step 6. Begin breaking the fast on the fourth day by drinking orange juice in the morning and eating a light meal of fruits and raw vegetables salad (oil dressing) in the afternoon. For dinner, have your cooked vegetables, leafy greens and starchy green veggies and end the meal with some light grains (whole grain bread or crackers (high in fiber).
Step 7. Eat regularly on the fifth day and return to a normal, healthy diet, and regular exercise schedule.
Step 8. Repeat this cleansing diet once a month for two to three months to clear your body of ALL (emotional, mental, and physical) toxic forces and prevent diseases.
