recommendations for detoxification/ cleansing diet? please

Any recommendations for a short term detoxification/ cleansing diet?

Specifically, my mother and I would like something:
a. disciplined, to give us a swift kick in the rear for the start of a healthier living regimen.
b. palatable, perhaps progressive so itís not impossible to maintain. For example, if it involves fasting or beet juice (yuk) we could do that for only 1-2 days and then transition to something more satisfying. But if it had broader choices we could do it for 5 days, a week, or two.
c. cleansing, but not depleting. A comprehensive approach which addresses energy level and balance.

Our physical concerns that led us to the idea of such a diet include:
a. distended stomach (bloating). This is the main reason my mom wants a program. She doesnít know whatís causing it and could really use help in combating it. Sheís very motivated to purge and cleanse her body.
b. general fatigue
c. weight gain (20 pounds each) in last year...would like to reverse trend and get more physically fit.

Things that have helped me in the past:
a. water, Ďnuff said.
b. elimination of wheat products (rice and corn instead) has helped me with heart burn, extreme nausea, and constipation. (sorry for specificity)

Based on this information, what are your recommendations? Please be specific if thereís a program name you know of, or recipes, or rules. If you know of something NOT to do, please tell me, too. Thank you, and (in advance) I appreciate your help.

Iím posting this message on several healthboards forums, so I can get plenty of input and because it doesnít quite fit tidily in one classification...alternative medicine, bowel disorders, diet and nutrition, digestive disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, weight loss. Sorry for the redundancy.

Hi. My boss does this 2x a year. I can't because I am diabetic, but it seems to work great for him. It's a 3-day apple diet. For 3 days, he eats nothing but apples, dried apple chips, applesauce, apple juice. It's not too hard to stick to, since the duration is so short. Don't attempt on a weekend when you're home and doing nothing. Best to do it on busy days, where you don't realize you're missing food. His Dr. suggested it as a means to good digestive/colon health. Good luck!!
