Default Gluten Free Cleanse?


Hi!

I wasn't sure which forum to post this in...

I'm considering doing a gluten free detox for weight loss. It sounds pretty easy, but I'm not so sure... Basically you eat mostly vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and beans and you cut out all meat, dairy, breads, pastas, desserts, and processed sugars.

I'm really looking for something to kick start better eating and shed these last 5 pounds. Has anyone done a vegan gluten free detox? Is it easy to stick with? Should I do 3 days or 6??

Thanks,

Cathy

Hi Cathy531, welcome to the forum. I've never done a gluten-free fast for weight loss, but if you can eat the things you mentioned above, it sounds like a cake-walk. If it were me, I'd go with the 6 day. For a water or juice fast, I'd do 3 only.

I am currently on a 7 day freshly juiced veggie fast right now, like K2C said, if you can eat all that it sounds easy. My mouth started watering when I read all of that yummy food.
I haven't heard of the fast that you mentioned, but fasting can be a useful tool to help cleanse, detoxify and heal the body.

Jofus, your fast sounds like a healthy one. Let us know how you feel when it's complete.
