A confident woman. She knows what she wants and gets it. She is aware of her flaws, but she doesn’t obsess over them and instead thinks that maybe (just maybe) they actually add to her unique beauty. She is passionate. She loves life. She is comfortable in her own skin and owns her sexuality, but uses it purely for good. She does not see other women as her enemy and competes only with herself to do her best at all times and to be her best at all times. She is forthright, honest, disarmingly herself and tries to be no one else. She is having fun and she is sexy and you just want to be around her to soak up some of those good vibes. She isn’t perfect, but she doesn’t care because she is hot. And so are you.

Detox Diets

A Detox Diet (also called a cleansing diet) will remove toxins and poisons from your body. The idea of a good detox diet is to eat pure and natural foods that will aid the function of the lymph, kidneys, and liver. All foods that hinder the regime will be avoided.

Detox diets are controversial. Many feel that most of the so-called "medical science" presented in these diets is nothing more than fiction. It is true that most of these diets have quite severe restrictions, and should be embarked upon with great care.

  • Whole unprocessed foods (grains, nuts, seeds, etc).
  • High mix of vegetables and fruit.
  • 2 liters of water per day
  • Certain herbs such as Psyllium seed, Licorice root, Yucca root, Milk thistle seed, Gentian root, to aid the detoxifying process.

Most detox programs will avoid the following:

  • Alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, and drugs
  • Processed and refined foods
  • Certain supplements (due to the amount of additives).

Reduction of Stress

Many detox regimes are holistic in outlook. It is important to address other areas of stress in your life, and examine lifestyle as a whole.


  1. Lemon mmg popular but kene be careful, not every body system can withstand that much acid in the body. Macam i, i xleh makan buah acid lebih, nnti dia effect my joints kat lutut and siku, jadi cepat lenguh.. U seek expert la anne, mintak doktor/specialist buatkan food menu for u, at least boleh balancekan ur nutrition. lgpun kita xtaw bdn kita xleh amik lebih of certain food, better safe than never~

  2. lemon and acidic fruit okay with me...i xde pantang pape sgt dgn makanan kecuali daging merah & caffein...daging merah & caffein buat i dizzy, muntah n mygrain...acidic fruit i dh ambk dr sekolah lagi coz my femly slalu sediakan acidic fruits in our fridge at home...YUP! i mmg rujuk kt doc bout my health evrytime im on diet..i rujuk kt my gym trainer and others gym trainer on9..they agree ngan my detox program (oat detox) im doing right now coz im not stravg myself..u should aware yg detox plan ade mcm2 jenis..xsemua kt bleyh its ok if u nk experience one by one w/o harm your body~ depends pd penerimaan pd bdn masing2~
