The following easy to implement tips for good digestion:

1. Eat in order of digestibility.
Eat foods that are fastest to digest first.
•Water & Juices: 20-30 minutes
•Fruits, Smoothies, Soups: 30-45 minutes
•Vegetables: 30-45 minutes
•Beans, Grains, Starches: 2-3 hours
•Meat, Fish, Poultry: 3 or more hours
2. Drink warm liquids with your meal. Warm drinks will encourage proper digestion.
3. Eat at regular meals times.
It has a regulating effect on your digestive system.
4. Be conscious of what you eat and your portion sizes.
The #1 cause of indigestion is over consumption.
5. Chew your food completely.
Large pieces of food in the stomach can cause digestive discomfort.
Also, a colon cleanse will help to because the colon is not designed to have food in it all the time and a cleanse will restore it and it will function properly.

I would really love to know how much money you spend on all your fruits, vegetables, herbs supplements and colonics/enema aids - it must be a small fortune!

Good to hear your story Lori. Juicing certainly brings about a change in health.

Intensive juicing and coffee enemas cured my chronic fatigue many years ago and I have been a fan of detox ever since. It was not a juice fast though.

Since I discovered Green Smoothies I have had one every morning. I am really hooked on them!

Hi L-A,
We find that healthy choices do not have to always be very expensive. We will be bringing more tips on following a detox-friendly lifestyle in the next few issues of our blog, so keep an eye on our updates if you want to find out more.


Hi L.A, I usually pre plan every juice feast at least 4 months in advance. so i slowly bought all the superfood powders and supplements during that time to spread the cost. All the supplements have lasted ages! The fruit, veg, nuts etc cost less than i used to spend when i was eating a standard british diet. I make sure i visit the veg stalls in my local town market - much cheaper. Hope that helped! Lori


Great information. Indeed, detox is important for good digestion, some herbal tea such as chamomile and ginger tea help to improve digestion to.
