A Simple and Highly Effective Apple Diet and Cleansing Program that Everyone's Talking About

By Dr. Ben Kim

Today I'd like to share with you a simple apple diet and detoxification routine that you can follow without making any major changes to your daily routine.

Here's what you do:

Eat nothing but apples - any variety you like - whenever you are hungry, from the time that you wake up to the time that you usually have dinner. Apples are a good choice for a diet and cleansing program because they don't tend to contribute to dental caries the way that large amounts of other fruits like bananas, dates, and oranges do.

For dinner on your apple diet, you can have what you usually have. But it would be best if you could have your dinner meal consist of at least 50% green vegetables.

Here are a few examples of optimal dinner meals on the apple diet:

Example A
Steamed broccoli
Brown rice
Healthy dressing from our recipe section

Example B
Steamed kale
2 organic eggs, scrambled
Healthy dressing from our recipe section

Example C
Steamed asparagus, spinach, and green peas
3 ounces of wild salmon
Healthy dressing from our recipe section

If you find yourself looking for a snack later on at night, go back to munching on apples.

If you're using Dr. Kim's Greens and/or Carlson cod liver oil, take one or both with your dinner meal.

It makes a perfect handout to give to friends and loved ones who want to lose weight and feel great.

That's it.

Many people who have followed this apple diet and detox routine on my recommendation have reported losing unwanted weight, feeling more energetic, having clearer skin, and just plain feeling better than they have in a long time.

And because this routine will supply your body with healthy calories whenever you are hungry, the detoxification effects will not be so abrasive that you will have to take time off of work or from your daily routine to get extra rest.

Another beautiful feature to this routine is that you can benefit from following it for one day, several days, or even a few weeks.

As long as you don't have or develop a problem with your blood sugar level, you can follow this program for as long as it feels right for you. I have some good Russian friends who have successfully followed this regimen for years.

Just one note of caution: if you have high blood sugar or any problems related to your blood sugar regulating mechanisms, you may want to substitute the apples with non-sweet vegetables like lettuce, celery, tomatoes, and cucumber. And of course, before following this or any other detoxification routine for more than a few days, it's prudent for you to consult with a health care provider who can provide you with personalized guidance as you seek to get healthier.
