It is a completely plant based regimen that is very simple to use and usually well tolerated. There are some people who should not use it however, they include those with diabetes, those with overly active metabolisms especially due to certain illnesses and those who cannot tolerate a restrictive caloric intake. We can help guide you in deciding if it would be appropriate and safe for you. For most people it not only save but definitely rejuvenating!
The 5 day kit includes everything you will eat for those days. You should not eat anything else than what is in each days' box. You should stay well hydrated, ideally with non-caffeinated, non-sugary beverages - meaning water and herbal tea (which is provided). If you cannot go without your coffee, you may have plain black coffee.
Kits retail at $250 for the full 5 days and are available directly from MIMI. If you purchase 3 or more at once they are discounted to $225 per kit. Online ordering information coming soon!
