I don't think that you have to do a store brand Detox. Those are usually bunk and don't give you the number of calories. I "detox" every day but do it naturally. I eat a lot of fermented foods, I ferment quinoa for two days then drink the water in small 4oz doses. You want to really get the effects of detox but still stay healthy-- do 6 oz of wheat grass juices two times a day. A digestive system can only handle 4-6 oz at a time. Look at any health food stores-- WHOLE FOODS usually carry it in the frozen section. Get over the grassy taste and it is fine. I do the tablets which equals 4-6 oz of the juice. As far as peanut butter to almond butter-- I don't see much of a difference. I do both. I can get them from Whole foods. they have a machine that will churn it out for you. No added oils, no perservatives. You can also get some good stuff on line if your stores don't have it available
If you buy PB from the grocery store-- the less ingredients the better. mine only contains peanuts or almonds.
I think it's great that you are quitting smoking, but I don't quite understand the detox connection with that.

Thanks. I have been smoking since I was 13 I am now 34. I want to do a detox before I change my diet. Because I also incoroprated my desire to quit smoking as well the detox before changing food choices is supposed to help me curb the urges and keep the smokers weight off. ?From what I'm told?

I am preparing to detox. I went to the grocery stores in my area to get needed ingredients for my homemade Green Detox shake. The stores in my area don't have Almond butter I tried peanut butter as a sub it was delicious. the thing is I want to know if anyone has done this. I used the kids peanut butter , so I suppose I should go back and find a peanut butter that's all natural. Spark people help - should I use it or are the benefits of almond butter better? Can I substitute and still detox?
