This diet is ideal for what Dr. Junger calls the “fat all over” body type. You may feel sluggish and addicted to processed foods, and rely heavily on frozen dinners, boxed meals, diet foods, packaged snacks, and processed soups and sauces. This cleanse is designed to give your digestive system a break, boost your metabolism, and give you more energy. An all-liquid detox cleanses the liver, allowing it to flush toxins from fat cells.
