Detox means a process or a period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances, i.e. detoxification.

So let us mention those foods which contain toxins, i.e. refined foods (inc. carbohydrates and fats) e.g. refined grains, white sugar, white flour, donuts, pasta, cookies etc. Other foods include: caffeine, cigarette, excess salts and meat (if it is not of natural grass fed animal).
