Reading this post made me feel less guilty about not doing any cleanses thus far. I've also read that the best way to "cleanse" your body is to eat foods without preservatives, additives, trans fats or extra sugars (especially high fructose corn syrup,) and eat lots of whole foods instead. Avoiding pesticides/herbicides by choosing organice produce is also big.

Eliminating refined sugars, excess salt and white flour alone would probably make a huge difference.

Of course, I don't follow all of those guidelines all the time, but knowing them often steers me toward better choices.

I'm proud of you for giving this a try, and am thankful for your review. I think many others are like me in that they have heard a lot about cleanses and considered doing them, yet haven't taken the plunge.

Enjoy your newfound appreciation for food :)

Wisely put about cleanses, and about taking care of yourself. I'd guess that we have to be kind to our bodies by not subjecting them to extremes, you know?

One of the moms of my students talked about "clean eating," and while I'm not totally sold, I picked up a magazine and found some recipes I might like to try. I wish it came more naturally to me to make all the good choices, though!
