This healthy detoxification diet is so easy! All you need to do is eat lots of your favorite fruit and drink lots of water.
The first day you need to eat 1 pound of grapes.
Try to break up this amount into many small servings so that you can eat every two hours. Choose any grapes you like – it can be white, red or pink grapes, but prefer organic if it is available.
You can eat your grapes with seeds, as grape seeds contain the most valuable nutrients. Just make sure to chew them up for easier digestion.
If you have constipation problems and don’t have a regular stool, chose seedless grapes as they can make you constipated.
Second day eat about 3 pounds of grapes;but drink a little less water as grapes already have lots of water in them.
The thirds day eat 4 pounds of grapes. You can snack on them all day long. Eating frequently will speed up your metabolism and you will burn fat even faster.
Try to eat in moderation a day prior to this diet to prepare your body for the next seven days. Go vegan for one day if you can.
For the next seven days eat about 3 pounds of grapes a day and drink at least 6 cups of good quality water.
You may also drink herbal teas with no sugar of course.
Tip: wash your grapes thoroughly to make sure you wash all pesticides of them. I recommend washing them with hot water right before eating.
If your condition worsens while on the grape diet, stop it and gradually return to your normal healthy eating habits.
If you do everything right you will detoxify your body, purify your blood and lose weight. Three day healthy detoxification diet will help you lose about 2-3 pounds and the seven day healthy detoxification diet will shed about 8 pounds of your weight.
