Fiber Rich Food and Water Detox
I have taken to drinking a lot of water, and here is what I do. I found a 32 ounce water bottle which I keep full during the day. And I refill it 3 times a day.

are one of the best sources of water and fiber. If you don’t drink enough water the kidneys get lazy, and gives the unfinished work to the liver. Your kidneys remove wastes and water from the blood to form urine. The liver breaks down nutrients into chemical compounds so they can help your body function. The liver also works on food and drink that hurt your body, such as alcohol, and preservatives
Ample water recreates the river that carries the toxins out of the body after the kidneys and liver have done their jobs. The liver also produces bile, which is stored in the gall bladder at the top of the small intestine (the duodenum). The first job of bile is to break down fat. Water plays a very big part in washing out cholesterol, so gallstones don’t have a chance to form.
