Edible Guidelines Exercise

- Decide what you want to take out of your diet. For example, if you have allergies to dairy, gluten, coffee or alcohol, or certain food make you feel pain, anger or hatred, consider removing them from your life for this cleanse. Figure out what you want to give up, and then commit to this and let go of the item for the next 30 days.
- Assess what you are ready to take on. Do you want to go raw? Do you want to be vegan, vegetarian, egg eating vegetarian? Or you could simply give up sticky carbohydrates and animal protein, or fast food. Ask yourself if you are you ready to eliminate these items from your daily diet. If you have any known allergens like dairy, gluten, nuts and any fruits and vegetables, avoid them while cleansing.
