If you are looking for a good system cleansing diet that you can use over the week-end, this 3 day lymph cleansing diet is perfect. Most people find by following this program they not only cleanse their lymphatic system, but tend to lose a few pounds in the process.
Begin day one by gathering fresh (organic if possible) green vegetables. Green onions, zucchini, celery, parsley, mustard greens, turnip greens, cabbage, green peppers, spinach, lettuce, broccoli and carrots. Although carrots are not a green vegetable, vitamins and minerals found in carrots are a very important in the cleansing factor. Wash all vegetables thoroughly, cleaning away any wilted or dead parts. Do not cut or scrape the vegetables. You will want to use all parts including roots and stems. In a large canning pot put four gallons of bottled water. This can be distilled water or spring water. Add all the vegetables to the pot and cook on low heat for 2 hours. Be sure to keep a lid on the pot during cooking so that vitamins and minerals can recycle with condensation. Remove pot from heat and allow liquid to cool. Drink three 8 ounce glasses of the vegetable broth once before lunch and a second time before dinner. It is suggested that if you are going to eat during this diet, eat fresh vegetables only.
Day two of the diet, drink three 8 ounce glasses of the broth before breakfast, lunch and dinner. If the broth is getting low you can add more bottled or distilled water at this time.
On day three, repeat the three 8 ounce glasses of broth before each meal, but eat the vegetables from the broth for your meals.
