Drink four to five 24oz water bottles a day.
This is an important part of the cleanse. YOU NEED TO DRINK ALL 5 (at least 4 if you can’t get 5 in). Get 3 in before noon. Wake up and drink one before 8, one before 10 and one before noon. Then get one in before 3, and one before 6 then you’re done. Do not drink any large amounts of water after 7. I don’t want any angry texts telling me you can’t sleep because you keep going to the bathroom all night long.
Take a probiotic supplement such as Life 9 or eat 2 servings, spaced throughout your day, of 0% Greek Yogurt. Do not get any with fruit added. I would like you to add your own. Get blueberries or strawberries.
Green tea helps cleanse your body of toxins. Even though it is a natural dehydrator, it is also a natural diuretic and is an important part of this program. This is in addition to your water consumption, NOT in lieu of it. Try to drink at least one cup per day.

Eat 2 servings of approved fruit spaced out over your day. Eat as a snack or with your meals. If you are having more than normal hunger pains or heightened detox symptoms like migraines, eat up to 6 apples a day, one every two hours, as an apple flush, without any other food that day.
