Cleanse Detox Diet Plan Checklist - Be Well by Dr. Frank Lipman

Eat a wide variety of fresh, colorful food

Unlike a crash diet or a juice detox, the Be Well Cleanse is designed to be an entry point to a healthy lifestyle by helping you to discover which foods work for your body and which foods you need to avoid in order to feel your best.

The Cleanse REVITALIZE DIET is an elimination diet, which means that we remove all the foods that potentially CAUSE allergies, sensitivities, and inflammation.

The food you eat is central to your overall feeling of wellness, so following the Cleanse diet is an important part of the process.
