  • Average serving size = generally 3-5 oz. cooked (roughly the size and thickness of your palm)
  • Total servings: 2-4 per day, with 1-2 servings being fish

Fish should be deep-sea fish (e.g., salmon, cod, or sea bass), not farm raised

Select lean meat (chicken) that is organic, free range, antibiotic free, and hormone free, if possible.

  • Prepare by broiling, baking, roasting, or poaching
  • No cured, smoked, or luncheon meats
  • Ask your health care professional about adding 2 scoops of Whey Pro Complete, a powdered protein supplement, to each SP Complete shake for additional protein. (Whey Pro Complete can be added to shakes starting on day 1.)

Spring Water

  • Drink a minimum of 8 glasses (64 oz.) of spring water a day.

Oils

The average serving size is 1 teaspoon. You can consume 4-7 teaspoons per day while on the program. Oils should be cold pressed and unprocessed. Use high-quality oils, such as:

  • Coconut oil
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Fish oil
  • Flax oil (keep refrigerated, do not heat)
  • Grape seed oil

Refrain From Consuming or Using

  • Alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, or other stimulants

For optimal results, follow the instructions given to you by your health care professional. Any changes or alterations may decrease the detoxification and weight-management benefit you can gain from the program.
