I run into many different types of people during my adventures with whatever project I’m up to, in this case in particular more directly those that start a detox or a cleanse.
First of all it鈥檚 important to note that when perusing the contents of Detoxify Yourself it could look slightly daunting when you get to the meal section and you see 6 meals in a day.聽 Yes we鈥檝e all heard this before; many people know what to do others have just聽heard聽you鈥檙e supposed to eat small meals throughout the day.
I鈥檇 like to make it clear there is a process on how to go about eating small meals throughout the day.聽 I certainly wouldn鈥檛 recommend starting out with a goal of 6 meals a day when at the moment you have two.聽 That鈥檚 a pretty big leap.聽 Throughout Detoxify Yourself I talk about widening your scope of success, we want to do everything we can to increase our success rate.
Steps to your success
#1. The first thing that needs to be done before starting any detox meal plan is read the contents.聽 I know most people want to jump in with two feet and get started right away(I鈥檓 certainly that way); however, there is usually instruction or directions that actually help you be more successful with their process if you read it.#2. Remember gradual is sustainable, so the next thing we are going to do is add one more meal to our usual day.聽 If you usually only have 2 meals a day being a big breakfast and a big dinner add lunch in there somewhere.聽 If you only eat lunch and dinner find a way to get some nutrients in your body earlier in the day.聽 It doesn鈥檛 matter when you鈥檙e eating at this point or how many meals a day you鈥檙e having, try one more meal a day to give your body a chance to adjust to more food.聽 Remember everyone is different, if you鈥檙e already have three meals a day, add a fourth.聽 This could be a time to refer to the book or directions and see what consists as聽another meal.聽聽You鈥檒l find suggestions in Detoxify Yourself as to what a snack meal is (which is smaller than you鈥檙e usual lunch of dinner meal).

You鈥檒l want to try adding an extra meal for a week or two until it becomes normal, you shouldn鈥檛 feel like you鈥檙e stuffing your face or you鈥檙e full all the time by adding one meal.聽 Once you delegate the time for an extra meal, for planning, eating and purchasing more food then you can move forward.聽 This has become normal to you and you鈥檒l likely already start to feel more energy.聽 It鈥檚 fantastic to receive that ROI (return on investment) almost immediately but you aren鈥檛 done yet.聽 After an extra meal is your聽normal聽it鈥檚 time to add another meal.聽 What we鈥檙e doing here is going through a process, I鈥檓 showing you how to gradually build up to that 6 meals a day instead of trying everything at once.聽 Once again, gradual is sustainable and if you want to get through 30 day, which is one month or 4 weeks you could use every advantage you can give yourself.

#3. The next thing that should be done if you鈥檙e trying something similar to a 30 day detox is try to prepare some of the meals before you jump into the 30 days.聽 There鈥檚 all kinds of factors to consider when trying different meal plans:

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Where you鈥檒l get the food

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 How long it will last

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 How to prepare it

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Consider a few tweaks so you鈥檒l enjoy it

So try a few meals, help yourself understand what it takes to get through the time period recommended to you give yourself the best chance at following through with your detox meal plan.
