Day 9: Transition/End
Today marks the final day of this detox. At this point you can slowly transition back by integrating some cooked foods. Ideally, all meals should still be entirely plant-based. Take your time integrating back grains, meats and dairy; as these things will aggravate your digestion if brought back in too soon. Or you can just do what I did two years ago and cut out all animal products for good! Either way, my recommendation is to begin integrating juices, smoothies and raw foods into your daily eating regimen…all the time! It will not only help crowd out old habits but will begin to contribute to your overall health and wellness.
Always remember, this was not a “diet”; this plan was meant to reverse habits, clean us out and reset the way we would normally do things. That said, if you don’t feel that the last 9 days have made a lasting impression, my suggestion would be to repeat the process until it does. When I first came up with this program 2 years ago, the first time I tried it, I ended up extending the juice fast for 20 days. Depending on your current health/lifestyle, this could create ultimate changes for you. The longer you go, the more you will condition yourself into a new, healthy lifestyle.
You can easily prolong this program by simply extending the 5 day juice fast portion by as long as you’d like. Just make sure you get this ok’d by your physician first! And depending on what the Colon Hydro-Therapy technician said, you can get as many sessions as required over the span of the juice fast. For best results, I would suggest a colonic at the beginning, middle and end of the fast.
Thanks again, for following me along my journey (and being on it, if thats the case). Keep it up!
Since you already have the idea from the first transition day, I’m not going to post everything I did below. Although, here are a couple shots of some of the amazing things I ate on this day…
Spicy Tofu/Black Bean Scramble
