Alkaline Diet Recipe Book Banner

7:00 AM – I’d have a juice now made of all the greens I’ve bought – you’ll have your recipe set up for you – so make your green juice.  If you want you can make a massive load of juice and put some in an airtight container in the fridge to enjoy later if you get peckish or start to get detox headaches.

7:30 AM – Light exercise for 15-30 minutes – could be walking, light jogging or rebounding or simply stretching/yoga.  Do not overexert.

8:00 AM Ginger tea – I’d usually make about a litre or so per person of ginger tea by simply stewing fresh root ginger in simmering (boiled) water for 15 minutes (hydration at 600ml)

8-9:30 AM Consume 1 litre of alkaline water (hydration up to 1.6 litres) – include green powder if also using supplements, plus clay, plus any other powdered supplements

9:30 AM Time for ‘breakfast’ smoothie – so I’d have one of the alkaline avocado based smoothies which is big, thick, filling and satisfying

10:00 AM Supplements – any detox supplements, fibres, and lots of omega 3.

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM – Consume 1 litre of alkaline water (hydration up to 2.6 litres) –  include green powder if also using supplements, plus clay, plus any other powdered supplements

12:30 PM – Lunch: make an alkaline raw soup and consume either cool or warmed slightly.

13:00 PM – Another cup of herbal or ginger tea (hydration up to 2.9 litres)

14:00 PM – 2nd raw juice, either the 2nd half of the earlier drink OR if I had that as a snack I’ll make another now.

14:30-15:30 PM – Final litre of alkaline water (hydration up to 3.9 litres) –  include green powder if also using supplements, plus clay, plus any other powdered supplements – further hydration after this is optional but recommended

16:00 PM – 2nd alkaline smoothie – again, either the remainder from earlier or a fresh batch

17:00 PM – Another cup of herbal or ginger tea (hydration up to 4.2 litres)

18:00 PM – Dinner – Alkaline Soup

19:00 PM – Second round of breathing exercises and supplements including omega oils.

20:00 PM – if hungry any remaining or leftover, or a fresh soup, smoothie or juice if hungry.

20:00-22:00 PM – Sip at herbal tea, lemon water or other hydrating beverage if thirsty.  Bed at 22:00.

    Hi Ross,

    I am interested in buying the Chanson Max. I live in Singapore. I would like to know if it is as simple to install as claimed. Is this machine compatible with any taps.

  2. Victorina

    Hi Ross, I wanted to buy your recipe book for 27 pound, but I don’t want to buy the boot camp for 22 pound . Sadly there is no way to say that I only want the recipe book.
    Can you help? (Do you have a PayPal account?)

    Hi Katharine

    Great to hear you interested in getting a Chanson Max.

    They really are easy to install, see my video below!

    Hi Ross, thank you for the information. I will definitely try this cleanse. However, I want to know if it will still work for me because I am not allowed to eat any citrus, tomato or vinegar because of a condition called interstitial cystitis. Those foods make my bladder feel very painful. Can I skip these foods and still succeed?

    Thanks again.

    What a GREAT video, thanks Ross!

    What about eating foods cooked and/or warmed while on a cleanse. Is it a situation where cold/raw is better but cooked/warmed is better than not doing it?


  8. Energise Ross

    Hey Lance – no worries and thanks for the nice comment!

    ‘Raw’ can still be warmed. That’s another important distinction that people don’t realise. If you can put your finger in it without it burning – it’s still raw. This is a lifesaver when cleansing in winter!

    Thanks Pamela!

  12. Meka

    I need to do a alkalizing cleanse and a candida cleanse. Which do you think should be done first? Or will one help for both?

  13. Doug

    Is an alkaline cleanse a good complementary treatment option for C.difficile? If so, are there any adjustments I need to make to the cleanse for this purpose?
