Thoughts/Ideas on a fasting & liver detox for Spring?
drinking 3 or 4 green-based smoothies a day plus lots of mineral water with lemon. I would use kale, cucumber, perhaps some berries, parsley, an apple or some berries, water and ice. I would do it as a smoothie, not juicing.
Heck, it sounds so appealing I might join you!
I knew a woman who did that "liver cleanse" where you drink a massive quantity of olive oil in addition to some non-food stuff. It just about destroyed her health, and after that she was never able to eat a normal diet again.
I have always used MCT to provide that lipid just because it gets converted to Ketones and not ( normally ) stored
the other thing to consider is that you want a cleanse. if your toilet was backed up you would use draino ( or something similar)
Magnesium and Vitamin C cause the bowel to empty allowing the liver to dump its toxins into an empty-ish tube of your intestines...
additionally controlling bacteria is important. a candida overgrowth can slow down movements. interestingly mag + mct + xylitol( made from birch only not corn) kills excess candida... which must be expressed out of the system

I have done two of those 10-day lemon juice Master Cleanse things, and liked the effects very much. Both were before I knew about Primal, for what that is worth. If you are familiar with that particular protocol, I did not do the salt water, though - just couldn't do it, even though I tried.
I was thinking of a spring clean myself.
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
