Bonus Meal Plan

First, it’s important to increase your fluid intake.

Fluids help your body absorb vital nutrients and also help your body eliminate toxins and waste.

You should drink 16-32 ounces of fresh juice every day in addition to eating solid foods like vegetables and fruits.

You should also be drinking 32-40 ounces of water in addition to the fresh juice.

Stay away from caffeine and alcohol since these both can dehydrate you.

But you can drink herbal teas, ginger and lemon tea, filtered water, and coconut water/almond milk.

Another tip is exercise.

Make sure you at LEAST have 30 minutes of exercise per day.

Remember walking is exercise.

If you’re a vegan, you can use quinoa, brown rice and meat substitutes instead of red meat and fish.

Here’s a sample menu you can follow or modify to your tastes.

More than anything, pay attention to the structure of the meals and patterns and you’ll do great.

Everyday:

Start out your day with drinking herbal tea or hot water with lemon and sugar.

You can boil thin slices of ginger with water and then add lemon juice.

It’s amazing and good for you.

Breakfast:

1 cup of steel cut oats (choose coarse or steel cut oatmeal because it contains more fiber.  Avoid instant oatmeal; it’s packed with sugar and has minimal fiber.)

-3 cups of water

-1/2 cup almond milk

-cinnamon (optional)

-blueberries, strawberries (optional)

Boil 3 cups of water.

Add steel cut oats to boiling water.

It will take approximately 25-30 minutes to cook the steel cut oats or until the water is gone.

Once done transfer to a bowl and add 1/2 cup of almond milk, cinnamon, blueberries and strawberries for taste.

Mid-morning Juice:

Remember to wait at least an hour between meals to drink fresh juice.
