You're only human, so don't fret if you slip up

As your body is detoxing, you may find it hard to continue with your new healthy lifestyle. Don't worry if you slip up -- you are only human. All is not lost -- refocus and continue. It will work. Give yourself a great start with hot water and freshly squeezed lemon every morning. You can drink decaffeinated tea or coffee, too, but not with sugar.
