5-Day Alkalise Cleanse

Drink at least 6-8 glasses (approx. 300ml per glass) of fresh vegetable juice and vegetable broth throughout the day at 2 hour intervals. Carrot, spinach, beetroot and cucumber juice are all suggested. Juices are useful in weight-loss programs because they are filling yet low in calories, high in water and nutrients. In addition, drink plenty of purified non-carbonated mineral water and herbal teas to ensure you are not dehydrated.
