While waiting for my product to arrive from ChefV I was instructed to do a pre-pre-cleanse.
Here is what they have to say about doing a pre-cleanse.
The best way to avoid detox symptoms (although sometimes no matter what, they are not avoidable) is to pre-cleanse for at least 2 days prior to Chef V’s Organic Cleanse. Take more days to pre-cleanse (at least 5) if you are a heavy coffee drinker, sugar addict, or just eat and drink really bad.
Make sure to drink LOTS and LOTS of water the week before your cleanse (8 x 16 oz servings a day!) YOU MUST DRINK WATER FOR SUCCESS ON THE CLEANSE. One-week prior and one-week after drink 8 x 16 oz servings a day. Please stick to the list of foods below for your pre-cleanse (at least 2 days prior).
