J9 I've not actually done it for more than a couple of days (actually one day, and inbetween I had some nuts when I was feeling hungry!! so I wimped out bigtime!) but I did feel 'cleansed' somewhat after just a day so I figured after longer its going to really detox. I can't recommend enough a book I read by Allen Carr (not the comedian - the no smoking guru) this one Its not detoxing its more about re-thinking how we eat...brilliant.
Just stopping alcohol, fatty foods and processed foods, drinking lots of water and eating loads of fruit, vegetables and pulses and a little lean protein and small amounts of carbohydrate will put less pressure on your digestive system and make you feel more comfortable and enable you to get a better night's sleep.
