YES! You do. We have a lot of ladies who wish to jump-start the program and start detoxing right away, however, you will fail before you even start! The loading phase is just as important as any other - as it’s a time for your body to load up on healthy micro and macro nutrients before going through a detox. Don’t cheat yourself. Complete the loading phase.
This doesn’t mean you have to eat ‘junk food’. If you don’t want to eat burgers and chips you don’t have to! Just make sure you are eating high-fat foods like avocado, salmon, nut-butters, etc. But… you can also have some ‘junk food’ if you like too!
