Mac__Guest_: What is this diet and how does it work???
Roni_DeLuz: Hi This is Roni
Roni_DeLuz: The diet detox is about cleansing your system of everyday toxic substances. Itbgives your body a chance to rest by giving your body maximun nutrition in small doses. Ror example you will receive powerful vitamins and minerals in one glass of juice, this will allow your body to be nourished and then your body will not be afraid to release fat and toxins.
