– Drinking fruit and vegetable shakes is a great way to stave off hunger.
– Eliminate dairy products – they are something to avoid when cleansing the body.
– Cut out red meat entirely or reduce your intake to 6 oz. or less. Meat is the major factor in the buildup of toxins in the body. A good substitute for the red meat is chicken or fish.
Steamed vegetables and fruit ideally should make up 90% of your colon cleansing diet.

Raw vegetables are however the best, although sometimes not the tastiest, way to consume vegetables.
