Fasting or cleansing has long been touted as a healthy process with many benefits such as cleaning the system, ridding the body of so-called toxins, benefiting the intestinal track, boosting metabolism, and jumpstarting weight loss. However none of these notions are true, nor are they backed up by medical research.

I want to do a cleanse for 4-7 days but want to make sure it's healthy. My goal is to detox my body and get off processed sugars/foods and hopefully to lose several pounds, but want to make sure I won't hospitalize myself doing this/be unable to function successfully. This is the plan, please suggest modification if nesc.

Day 1 and 2:
Breakfast- 1 glass fruit smoothie
snack- .5 glass green smoothie
lunch- 1 glass green smoothie
snack- 1 glass fruit juice (fresh squeezed, no added sugar)
dinner- 1 glass green smoothie
snack- 1 glass fruit juice

I know this seems likes a lot but I've done juice fasts before and you get hungry, plus each juice is like 100, to 120 cals. I will also be drinking a lot of water

Day 3-4
Breakfast- 1 apple
snack- 1 cup strawberries and green smoothie
lunch- avocado and tomato with lemon
snack- 1 cup snap peas
dinner- boiled asparagus with lemon/ artichoke with lemon and green smoothie
snack- 1 cup raspberries

Day 5-6
Breakfast- 1 apple
snack- green smoothie
lunch- quinoa with asparagus and leeks
snack- snap peas
dinner- avocado, tomato, brown rice
