Is snacking allowed while cleansing?
Snacking is permitted on the program, so long as it appears on the Approved Foods List. Snacks are great when you are truly hungry and not eating out of boredom or habit.
When you have identified 'True Hunger' and wish to have a snack, our suggestions include homemade hummus or guacamole with raw crudite, raw nut butter with apple slices, a fresh green juice, or a handful of raw almonds.
Portion sizes vary from person to person, so it is recommended to eat slowly and mindfully, until about 80% full. Ensure that you keep your 12-Hour Window between your evening and morning shakes, to allow for optimal digestion and detoxification processes.
To avoid mindless snacking, instead choose to hydrate, go for a walk, or call a friend. If cravings arise, simply focus on that sensation and let it rise and fall naturally, as you will notice that they tend to disappear as quick as they come.
Most cleansers feel better when focusing on getting all nutrients and calories from the shakes and meals, rather than from snacks throughout the day.
