Re: Food Detox

In the book "The Fat Flush Plan," (Ann Louise Gittleman) she stresses a liver detox which lasts for 2 weeks following the protocol in the book. I've never heard of the term "food detox" but that could refer to abstaining from high-intolerance foods such as wheat, corn, dairy, yeast and soy. I would guess that 2 weeks would be sufficient and then return a single food to your diet and wait for a few days to see if you have any reactions and then continue to add a new food back into your diet every few days following.

By doing this method you will find out if you have an intolerance to any food you've eliminated for the 2 weeks and then you can just eliminate that food from your diet. For example, I learned I have an intolerance to soy, nightshade veggies and dairy by following the Fat Flush 2 week liver detox diet.

Detoxing usually refers to ridding the body of accumulated pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, chemical toxins, environmental toxins, etc. Food detoxing may be refering to hidden food intolerances which can be detected only by eliminating certain suspect foods from your diet for a period of weeks and then re-introducing that food to see if you have any reactions. It can take days for symptoms to surface after eating something that you may be intolerant to, whereas a food allergy reaction can happen in minutes.

It is suggested that one do a detox once a year to rid the body of toxic accumulation in the body. This is done by following a special diet designed for that purpose.
