Detox Food: Animal Proteins (Meats)
Detoxification: The removal of poisons or toxins from the body.
Do not eat animal proteins (meat, chicken, etc.) or fish in the first two weeks of the detox phase. However, if by the second or third day you are feeling lightheaded or dizzy, or experience brain fog, fatigue and/or overall body cold due to low blood sugar, or if you notice some hair loss or have cravings for protein, add a small amount of animal protein each day.
With this program, you are consuming lots of greens, low or little fat and minimal animal protein. Since fat readily satisfies hunger and this program is low in fat, in order to avoid hunger you need to compensate by eating more food more frequently. The most important action is to eat enough food to keep your calories up, as low calories will add stress and more weight gain. That is why it's imperative that you eat between meals. In parts of this book, if you are a Liver type, I recommend only three meals per day. Nevertheless, when you are on this detox phase, you should eat between meals as well.
If you need to eat animal proteins, as mentioned above, the following are the acceptable and preferred proteins:
Fish (wild-caught) Grass-Fed Eggs
Organic Meats (free-range cod, etc. – baked, Buffalo, beef, organic) not deep fried ; lamb, etc.
sashimi/sushi (without rice)
Start with one egg per day (it could be hard-boiled) or a small piece of fish. The raw fish in sashimi and sushi is ideal.
Do not overeat animal proteins – eat just the right amount to satisfy your hunger. It's better to eat frequent small amounts, since overeating will stress the liver and convert protein to fat. Fish is the best protein on this program, and raw proteins are more easily digested, causing less liver stress.
