Detox you body..

Have you ever try this detox method by eating only fruits and drink only mineral water and juice for three days? I have tried once, it was hard on the first day but once you get used to it, three days seems like only a day=) How did my body feel after the 3-day detox? I feel very light. I didn't lose any weight (only 1 kilogram) but I feel fresher. And on the fourth day when I had to eat real food, I feel like I'm eating something not good for my body since I was only eating fruits for 3 days ha ha ha.

But once a while you can try to do it. See how your body adapt to the changes, at least you can try to cleanse your body and wash away those toxins inside your body. I believe that no matter how careful you eat, you can still get toxins coming into you body from the air for example. You can even mix it with raw vegetables.

Here is one source about the 3 day fruit detox I read on timesofindia.

"You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your fri
ends tell you how radiant you look!"

Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

Sweetest medicine, eating 2 to 4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.
