As you begin to see results from this ĂĽber-pure diet (are you springing out of bed in the morning yet?), connect with the way your body is feeling. Notice what happens when you welcome back fish, legumes, and gluten-free grains. â€śRemoving food for just a week
is long enough to cause a reaction,â€ť Blum says. â€śWatch for food hangovers.â€ť
Keep In Mind: Detox is personal. The worst days should be behind you, but it depends on how toxic you are. (No, weâ€™re not kidding.) If youâ€™ve done a detox recently, you should feel great by now, with your mood and energy levels improving each day. If you still feel crummy, consider sticking with the guidelines from the first week until symptoms improve.
Add Back: Fish (not shellfish), all legumes and beans, and gluten-free grains
Sara Forte, the author of The Sprouted Kitchen cookbook and the popular blog of the same name, brings her everyday healthy cooking credo to the plan this week, with gluten-free whole grains like quinoa and brown rice and heartier proteins like wild Alaskan salmon and sardines. Coming off last weekâ€™s light fare, youâ€™ll begin to build back your strength and feel satisfied. Many of Forteâ€™s dishes are interchangeable (her baked sweet potato, for example, works as breakfast or lunch). Cook the grains and make the big-batch kale salad ahead.
