You may feel like detoxing means days and days of juicing and exercising, feeling hungry and generally exhausted. But the point of a detox is to make you feel better, not worse!
You can give your body a reset while actually eating, you just have to figure out what your body needs. Fruit, veggies, and lean protein are a definite yes: they keep the body functioning properly, can reduce cholesterol, and regulate blood pressure. Sugar, alcohol, and soft drinks are on the opposite side of the spectrum.
