6) Slowly work your way back to solid foods

Don’t celebrate with a big feast of solid foods. The longer you’ve been on a juice cleanse, the harder your body may react when you reintroduce solids, especially meat, back into your system. On the first day, eat a few pieces of fruit, and lightly steamed, non-starchy vegetables, such as spinach, on the second day. You can gradually reintroduce meat and seafood on the third day, but only in small amounts. You can go back to your regular diet by the fourth day.
