So, while you might want to brush this one off, there is a good reason you should consider reading further. For all you know, by the end of it, you might be inspired enough to try it.

What Is The One Day Cleanse?

Nutritionist Kimberly Snyder designed this plan. Her aim was to allow the body to detox, while ensuring it doesn’t feel starved the entire day. This cleanse only lasts a day, so not only is it easy to deal with, but you can easily follow it, even if you have a busy schedule.

How Does The One Day Detox Work?

It is very easy. This is how your day will look like if you take up the one day cleanse.

Drink Hot Lemon Water As Soon As You Wake Up

Warm water has proven to aid digestion, and lemons are packed with Vitamin C. Both make a killer combination and are great to kick start your day. You just need to squeeze out the juice of half a lemon into a mug of warm water. Brush your teeth only after you have had this water.
