A 5-Day Gut-Flush Cleanse That's Easy To Work

20180422_174724.jpg

We all do it... fall off the healthy-eating bandwagon at times. When we use emotional eating to help us get through our latest personal issue and end up eating more sugar and fat, and drinking more alcohol than we should.

To get back to having the right body balance, a good cleanse is useful. And rather than starving our bodies of the nutrients they need to detoxify themselves, a whole foods diet will help our bodies do what they're naturally good at.

You could try this 5 Day Gut-Flush by Dr. Junger. It's designed to remove all processed foods and focus on ingesting whole vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and sustainable meats. Each day consists of a shake or smoothie for breakfast, a solid lunch, fruits or nuts as a snack, and a soup for dinner.

You can get all of these menu items from CRAVE. Pick and choose from our menu board to make your own daily meals. Here's a suggested eating plan:
