4. Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet Plan
Resting, reducing and rebuilding are the three principles this detox plan is based on says its originator; Roni Deluz. The plan can last from between seven to twenty-one days. During these days, you will consume a variety of supplements that will see you doing some enemas and going to your bathroom. You do not exercise at all during the resting phase. The reducing phase sees you on a liquid only diet while the rebuilding phase is what occurs to your body’s cells when you conclude the fasting.
5. Raw food detox diet plan
This detox plan was made popular by Natalia Rose and Christine Healey each with a different name for it. It is based on the claim that taking raw food (like was intended by nature) is the best option for appetite control, detoxification, cleansing and a healthy weight maintenance. This diet is adopted by people for many different reasons. The reasons include physical performance, anti-aging, weight reduction and general health benefits. A typical raw food diet requires that ¾ of your food be raw. The underlying principle is that uncooked foods are best for your body as they are high in fiber content that lets your body detox, they contain minimal fats and aid your body in breaking a greater part of useable nutrients down.
6. Quantum detox diet plan
This detox plan was originated by a theoretical mathematician and mechanical engineer; Tonya Zavasta. It requires that you be on a 100% raw food diet. You take 2 of such raw meals within the first part of everyday with your whole daily intake inside eight hours after waking and if possible before 3 o’clock in the evening. This means you are to ensure that you take your last daily meal at least six hours before going to bed. This results in a daily fast of around sixteen hours. These hours give your body time to cleanse, digest and rebuild completely while remaining free from more chemicals and food to deal with.
In conclusion, detox diet plans are not what they have always been peddled to be.
