**Try not to slip back into your old habits completely. Don’t restrict yourself to the point that you are bored with your diet. If you can avoid junk food, alcohol, and caffeine. Keep up with a weekly relaxation technique and dry brushing. Please drink at least 7-8 glasses of fluid a day to flush out toxins.
You should be feeling a good deal healthier and more energetic than you did before.
