Fresh Fruit Cleanse
Fresh Fruit Cleanse is a weight loss and detox program designed to improve your health through enhanced nutrition.
It was created by Leanne Hall – a yoga teacher – who experienced positive results in her wellbeing with fruit cleansing diets.
Hall explains the benefits of fruit cleansing and how it can help you detoxify and balance your body. Leanne Hall says that her Fresh Fruit Cleanse will:
- Restore your metabolism.
- Makes the peristaltic action of the intestines stronger.
- If you cleanse for more than one day you will eliminate excess mucous from your digestive system.
- Inorganic mineral deposits that contribute to arthritis are dissolved.
Fresh Fruit Cleanse Basics
Fruit is high in water and fiber while being low in calories making it perfect for weight loss. So on the fresh fruit cleanse you can eat a lot of food, feel satisfied yet still lose weight easily.
The fruit cleanse also helps you develop an appetite for healthy food, putting you in control of your cravings.
Includes Options For 1, 3, 5 and 7-Day Cleanses
The right cleanse for you depends on your goals and current lifestyle. Before commencing the cleanse you should eat a healthy, macrobiotic diet for one or two days. A sample macrobiotic menu is provided.
1-Day Fruit Blast
This is a good cleanse to do once a week to purify your liver, kidneys, and bloodstream as well as reset your appetite. It is also beneficial when you feel like you are coming down with an illness.
3-Day Reset Cleanse
If you are new to cleansing diets this gentle cleanse would be a good choice for you.
This cleanse is recommended after festive holiday weekends such as Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July.
After three days you will notice:
- Weight loss
- Increased energy
- A clearer mind
- Better skin
5-Day Rebalance Cleanse
This cleanse is most appropriate during seasonal change to align yourself with the natural environment. It includes some larger meals to maintain your energy levels.
However, you will actually see greater weight loss and cleansing results compared to the shorter cleanses.
7-Day Detox Diet
If you are an experienced cleanser or feeling ambitious and want to see major results you can try the 7-day fruit cleanse. Because it is a longer cleanse it is best to plan to do it at a time when you have the opportunity to rest more.
Includes Recipes and Meal Plans
Each option includes a detailed meal plan with recipes based on fresh fruit. Hall explains that zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, cucumber and spaghetti squash are usually called vegetables but they are actually non-sweet fruits.
