    Trying to clean out my digestive system...

    Ok for three days or so I need foods that are easy on the digestive system because I want to basically clean it out....I am going to be tons of fruits because they are easy to digest....if I am correct.

    For protein I was thinking whey shakes were the best thing...

    Do you guys have any suggestions as to what foods I can eat that are easy on my digestive system?

    I think you should eat lots of celery and lettuce, which are known as 'roughage', and are good at cleaning out your digestive system.

    Could you maybe give more details about this? What it is... why it's good... etc?

    It's good to detox the body every now and then. In all the foods that we eat unless you always eat organic there are lots of chemicals and crap that can get built up in your system. By having an organic juice fasting every now and then it cleans your body out and the liver being the most important.

    To juice fast you just buy either organic 100% juices with the pulp or make your own from fresh organic fruits. Drink those in place of meals for 3 days. You feel like total crap from a mix of lack of food but moreso because your body is ridding itself of the toxins.

    Yeah exactly what I intended to do...but I never thought of making it pure organic...great idea....I can def feel that I need a detox...and fasting cleans out the colon which is very important, since that prevents all types of diseases mainly cancer.

    Do you think I would be able to drink natural protein shakes...the ones that are unflavored and 100% natural?

    No, I'd skip the protein.

    It's 3 days. it's not like you are fasting for weeks on end. You would lose very little muscle and I mean very little.

    Just curious...when you do a juice fast do you try to consume your normal amount of calories, just in juice...or do your calories drop drastically as well? It seems like you would have to drink a whole lot of juice in order to meet your caloric needs.
