A major component to the 10-Day Diet Detox program is the Toxicity Questionnaire you complete before and after the 10 days. The questionnaire identifies symptoms you may be experiencing in each of the major organ-systems of the body as a result of your current eating habits. Those symptoms should resolve or improve after 10 days.
You can also join an online support group and access videos and tracking tools to keep you on track during the 10 days.
Eight pounds is the average weight loss with some individuals losing up to 25 pounds in just 10 days.
