Master Cleanse “Lemonade” Diet.

Dinner: This weekend, try to eat early at about 7 pm and not later than that. You can eat meat, fish, and include nuts and seeds like walnuts and almonds in your diet for dinner. You can repeat the boiled vegetables you had for lunch for dinner as well. READ - Want to lose weight and improve your health? These are the top 6 nutrition trends to watch out for in 2019.

Lunches and dinners need to be hot and made up of 160-240g steamed vegetables - choose as many different colours as you can to get the best mix of antioxidant vitamins and minerals. Add a small portion (120g) of white fish or skinless chicken - these will be easy for your system to digest and are best steamed or baked; don't add any fat to them. Add either some brown rice or beans like butter beans, chickpeas or aduki beans (80g). Beans and pulses are packed with B vitamins, iron and protein, and are easier to digest than heavy breads or potatoes.

Lunch: For lunch, eat something light like curd rice, porridge, brown rice, and millets to make sure that your stomach remains light and your digestion gets better. All these food items taste great in winters and are rich in fibre. They help in improving your bowel movements and aid weight loss.

Detox diets, even for the limited span of a weekend, can lead to nausea, dizziness, fatigue and dehydration. You should always consult with your health care provider before attempting a detox. The effort could actually exacerbate an underlying medical condition and lead to worse health, not better. The smart choice might be a moderate weekend diet change, then a permanent shift to a healthy diet that encourages the body to eliminate toxins as it was designed to do.
