Detox juices: how to best use them to get a flat stomach?

The key is consistency. To take full advantage of the benefits of these detox smoothies, consume them in the form of a 3 to 5-day treatment, alternating them according to the time of day: the ‘grapefruit boost’ is ideal at breakfast, the avocado smoothie goes with a healthy and balanced lunch, and the ‘brain juice’ will do your body and mind good at around 5 pm. Also, remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day. In addition, celery juice is also a great ally for your flat stomach goal!
