You've probably heard about intense detoxification regimens that demand much in the way of discipline without offering much in the way of taste or satisfaction.

Detox doesn't have to be that way, says Dr. Alejandro Junger, author of "Clean" and creator of the detox program for our Whole Body Action Plan. True, you do need to limit your diet and forego certain indulgences before and during your detox. (Get a list of foods to include and avoid.) Our program calls for four days of light lunches and liquid breakfasts and dinners, which allow your digestive system to focus on driving out toxins.

However, there's no reason those nutrients can't come in a fresh, flavorful package. For liquid meals, try a Mango Smoothie or Fennel and Apple Juice, as prepared on "The Martha Stewart Show" by Martha and Dr. Junger. For lunch, see our detox-friendly lunch recipes.

Stevia is the only way to go and is great for diabetics! Yes, Splenda is a substitute and should be avoided.
