From their website:
We’ve found that people who ease into the cleanse with a few days of pre-cleansing enjoy the process a lot more, and experience better (and more long-lasting) results. On this page we’ll be talking about the Pre-Cleanse and how to get started on it.
The Pre-Cleanse is a 3-day period that helps you gear up for your cleanse. During the Pre-Cleanse, you eat three square meals a day exclusively from the Cleanse Diet, our list of approved and non-approved foods that you’ll follow through the program.
Watch this video about the pre-cleanse. (Note: Video references “Elimination Diet” and a pre-cleanse length of 3-5 days. A 3 day pre-cleanse is sufficient.)
Start your Pre-Cleanse
The more processed foods, coffee, and alcohol you have consumed in the past years, the more toxins your body has accumulated. When the body is full of toxins, inflammation occurs and we accumulate mucus and fat as a survival mechanism. So, jumping into the Cleanse too quickly can cause you to experience stronger cleansing symptoms which may include headaches, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea. The Pre-Cleanse is an important step that maximizes your success with the cleanse while helping to minimize cleansing symptoms.
Why is it so important?
You will be slowly removing the major allergen-causing foods while continuing to eat solid foods so you don’t cleanse too quickly.
If you regularly consume coffee and alcohol, the Pre-Cleanse allows you a few days to transition before starting your Cleanse.
You will learn which Cleanse Diet foods you like to eat so you’ll be more likely to enjoy the program.
What is the Pre-cleanse?
The Pre-Cleanse consists of eating three square meals a day exclusively from the Cleanse Diet, our list of approved and non-approved foods that you’ll follow through the program. It’s how you ease your body into the full-blown cleanse, which can be rough if you just jump right in without letting your body (and your mind) adjust to zero caffeine, sugar, gluten, etc. Trust us, this is an important step!
