DAY TWO PLAN
Either stir-fry or salads. Start the day with one baked or boiled potato to make up for loss of energy from Day One. Upto one teaspoon of olive oil can be used as salad dressing today.
This day starts off with a baked potato since all you have had the previous day is fruit which is easily digested. The potato ensures you have energy for the day as well as energy to continue to remain on the diet. The vegetables you will eat today are for fibre as well as nutrition.
Vegetables have a moderate quantity of carbohydrates - but more importantly, they are rich in minerals and vitamins. The fibre activates your system for the detox process.
Tips to make Day 2 successful:
Eat as many vegetables as you can today. You can also have the “Wonder Soup“. Because of the variety of flavors and textures that vegetables offer, this day should not be difficult. Vegetables can be steamed or lightly stir-fried.
An effective way to get the right balance of taste and nutrition is to use a lot of flavour enhancers to your stir-fry. In one teaspoon of oil add lots of garlic and finely chopped onions as well as parsley and shallots.
To this, add your choice of vegetables cut up into bite size pieces. Stir fry for 5-8 minutes stirring lightly. Add a few tablespoons of water if you find the vegetables sticking to the pot. The stir-fry is one of the joys of this diet.
After eating only fruit on Day 1, you will welcome the stir-fry - you might not even miss the rice/bread you have enjoyed before you started this 7-day diet!
