Can I eat meat during a cleanse?

Is it okay to eat meat during a cleanse?Hi Greg-

I haven’t been able to find anything in the guide about meat? Am I able to eat any kind of meat?

Thank you!

Hi Brenda,

Yes, do not eat solid proteins while performing the cleanse. Your protein comes from the greens and quinoa grain .

Proteins take a lot of energy to break down, and they take away from the body’s ability to cleanse. You won’t burn muscle or anything like that. You won’t shut your metabolism down, just giving the body a different fuel source while on the cleanse .

Being lean on protein is fine. I am a big believer of proteins, just not while on the cleanse.

Coming off the cleanse try not to eat red meat for a couple of weeks, even 30 days if possible. Introduce other proteins like chicken and fish slowly by having less than 6 ounces per serving and chewing the food really well so that the enzymes in your mouth maximize your assimilation, breakdown and absorption of the protein .

Hope that helps!

      Hi Lakiema,

      During a cleanse we always suggest following our dietary suggestions in the cleanse booklet. If you have questions regarding specific foods, please don’t hesitate to ask.
