Trying This! A Pro Trainer’s 1 Day Detox Diet

Another reason I LOVE my gym and my trainer, Carlos Monge of Body By Design is because in addition to the challenging, age appropriate workouts he gives us, Carlos also sends his clients weekly emails with inspirational ideas on how to live and eat to compliment exercise to get the best results and optimal health.  carlos

And Carlos, although completely buff and super healthy at 54, is only human and tells us about when he succumbs to eating unhealthy foods at times.  He did this a few days ago and he shared with us how he recovers from the fun, tasty but unhealthy food day with his personal detox day diet.  I was very intrigued to see how a professional trainer eats on a detox day and after reading it, I am inspired to try it as well.  It doesn’t look near as difficult as I thought it would be and it outlines the one day (or 2 day) plan for both men and women.  Take a peek….letseat

Carlos says:

After a day of too many carbs it is a good idea to do a detox day the following day.  This nutrition plan is very clean with only quality protein, lots of veggies, and no no no carbs!!!!!

Lots of water throughout the day as well………
