Hate the sickness as well! Yuck and to think winter is just starting ugh guess I better stock up on Kleenex! Congrats on your weight loss! It's always good when you have someone to lose with helps keep you motivated :)
I am kind of a cleanse junkie I love cleanses lol I've pretty much tried them all juice cleanse, soup cleanse shakeology cleanse each is good in it's own way. Here's the thing though most cleanses are basically the same at their core, the idea is to give your digestive system a break and "cleanse yourself" that's in quotes cause your body naturally detoxes that's what your digestive system is for so really all your doing is taking a break from overloading your body with toxins and allowing your digestive system to catch up and do its just but unless you are cleansing and then transitioning into clean eating its kind of pointless because all the bad stuff you just flushed out is getting put right back in when you are done with the cleanse. However it is a good way to jump start your weight loss but be aware you will gain some of what you lost back once you go back to eating normally. That said here is the basic cleanse rules to follow!
No matter what you are eating you want to make your digestive system to the least amount of work possible so absolutely no processed foods at all! No dairy, no sugar, no alcohol. Stick as much to veggies as possible, fruits are fine too but limit them to 1-3 servings a day, seriously veggies veggies veggies and water lots and lots of water. You can make a cheap veggie soup (4 c water 2 can diced tomatoes 1 pkg lipton onion soup mix garlic, green peppers, onion, celery, carrots basically any non starchy veggie) and you can eat as much of that as you want or you can drink your meals in juice or smoothie form. If you do smoothies just remember no added sweetners and no dairy. Typical cleanses run a period of 3-7 days do not go beyond a week or you'll start messing with your metabolism and always allow lots of time typically see recommendations of 4-6 weeks in between cleanses. Hope this helps let me know if you need anymore info!
