Warm is better than cold; your body processes warm water better. The lemon is refreshing while giving you a significant boost in vitamin C. It is also known to provide riboflavinoids that destroy free radicals that cause inflammation. For the rest of the day, only consume fresh, organic juices, your eight glasses of water, and two cups of herbal tea.

After your two day juice fast you should start reintroducing foods slowly. While still avoiding dairy, you should eat small amounts of natural applesauce, bananas and other soft, organic fruits. Start taking a daily probiotic to help balance your good bacteria with the toxins. It is recommended to do a two day juice cleanse at least once a year, but if you will get in the habit of listening to your body you will know when it is time for another cleanse.
