DAY 1

On the very first day of your detox diet, be prepared to constraint yourselves to only consuming liquids. It might seem quite impossible but you will feel motivated by the positive results. In the early morning hours, feel free to indulge in green tea or lemon and honey infusions. They will help you in keeping your energy levels up. As the day progresses, you can switch to buttermilk, carrot and beetroot juice, a glass of Nimbu Paani, fresh coconut water and a big bowl of clear soup for dinner. Steer clear of sugar.

Dote on fruits and sugar free drinks as mid-meal snacks. You can even have a fistful of nuts and seeds once during the day and drink green tea, fresh coconut water and clear fresh vegetable soup for refreshments.

DAY 5

This is the time to consume a protein rich diet and revive your energy. Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Body builders are snatching, grabbing, and gulping down protein shakes. Dieters are gobbling down protein bars in hopes of quick weight loss. But we’ll tell you too look for natural sources of protein and that’s very easy to do.

Here are some protein-rich recipes for you:
