I created this with the sick and extremely healthy in mind. I experienced fasting regimens while I lived in the Republic of China and experienced the benefits of eating clean food and fasting first hand. Do this as little or as many times as you like throughout the year. At a minimum I would schedule this event quarterly. You’ve likely heard of the Master Cleanse. It has become quite popular and for good reason. IT WORKS! It helps the body burn fat, rid toxins and develop the body's neurological awareness against toxins in foods and the environment. The EASY FAST is a 5 week version a powerful cleanse combined with the detoxification diet regimen. It allows the body to gradually become accustomed to a fasting environment building a gradual will power and offers a high potential for successful completion.
THE DAY BEFORE: The day before the fast you eat a normal detoxifying regimen diet but without any meat for dinner. Have just veggies and legumes for dinner.
FASTING DAYS: On fasting days one starts the day with a Greens complex mixed in water. For the duration of the day one drinks room temperature, or above, lemon water and Green Tea. The calculation for water is half your body weight in ounces. For example a 200lb person would drink 100 ounces of water. The calculation for green tea is half that of water. For example a 200lb person would drink 50 ounces of green tea. These values are a MINIMUM. You can drink as much water and green tea as you like.
The last drink of the day one would add 1 teaspoon of Kosher Salt to a glass of water and drink it.
This is important. Walking, Running and Cycling are recommended. The tempo of the exercise is critical. This program uses High Intensity Interval Training. The Swedish call this “Fartlek” it makes getting the heart pumping fun and easy.
It involves adding random “intervals” of all out speed during a walk, jog or while cycling. The number of intervals during a workout are gradually increased over time. It is used by the worlds top athletes to create MASSIVE action in the body’s physiology. It allows us to do more for our bodies in less time. What a concept!

The Ultimate Detox Diet
Use this diet to take a load off of your pancreas, kidneys, liver and gastrointestinal tract.
Here is what you should avoid:
Any food that contains genetically modified ingredients, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors or anything you cannot pronounce.
Starches and grains
Pasta, Potatoes, Breads, Cereals and anything with gluten content.
Juices and soft drinks
Water and teas are the only acceptable beverage, juice is a waste of energy they usually contain processed sugars and artificial sweeteners.
Here is what you should upload into your life:
Fiber and Alkalinity are some of the greatest benefits of veggies. Order organic to your doorstep if you can it's cheap and it forces you to take advantage of some amazing variety. Go green! Green leafy veggies have so much nutrition like calcium and iron as well as tons of antioxidant power. I like Swiss chard, kale, collard greens, green beans, peppers and spinach. A great substitute for lettuce in salads is baby spinach. Remember that POTATOES ARE NOT VEGGIES. OK, maybe by definition but a nutritional breakdown suggests that they fit much better with pasta, white bread and white rice so leave them alone! Uploading veggies as part of every meal and snack plus substituting with a "Greens" nutritional supplement mix will allow the body to maintain an alkaline environment which will allow the body's cells to repair and regenerate.
A great source of fiber and protein. This list includes
• Adzuki Beans
• Black Beans
• Black-eyed peas
• Broad Beans (Fava Beans)
• Butter Beans
• Calico Beans
• Cannellini Beans
• Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)
• Great Northern Beans
• Italian Beans
The Ultimate Detox Diet Cont…
• Kidney Beans
• Lima Beans
• Mung Beans
• Navy Beans
• Pinto Beans
• Soy Beans including black soy beans
• Split Peas
Wow! Look at all this variety. In Eastern and European countries these are staples and those countries have a dramatically lower incidence of disease.
Yes you can be nuts over nuts! Raw nuts be them almonds, pasticcios, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, pecans and all the rest. Almonds are my favorite and contain the most nutrient-bang for you buck with the most protein, calcium (yes calcium!), B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium to name a few. So have raw nuts handy as a snack in between meals and for dessert.
Poultry and Fish
If you look at most healthy countries' dinner plates, meat is a garnish. It is prepared with utmost care and flavour to savour but it doesn't make up the bulk of the plate. So eat and savour meat just don't load up on it. Cook your meats with healthy oils like olive, canola and coconut oils and flavor them with light kosher salt, pepper and spices like paprika, cayenne, turmeric and herbs like fresh oregano, basil and rosemary.
I am tired of hearing diabetic patients say they can't eat fruits because of sugar while they throw artificial sweeteners and processed foods down the hatch. Real organic fruit is full of fiber, antioxidants and nutrition that is excellent for the body while not raising blood sugar levels through the roof. Stick to powerful and easy fruits that aren't too acidic like apples, blue berries, bananas and pomegranates.
