I've been eating a lot of poo food whilst preparing for my walk (shiploads of carbs like chips pasta, more chips etc).

Just want to get rid of my salty food/chip craving and start eating health again...

Lots of vegetable soups and fruit smoothies. Lots of water.

Or just make a healthy food plan and stick to it, doesn't take long for the body to forget the cravings and start loving healthy food again.

edit: I think bananas are meant to be good for people craving salt.

But some 'detox tea', not a weight loss tea, one that has fennel, milk thistle, dandelion, licorice root, nettle, lemon, ginger or any combination of the above. Nothing with caffeine or chemical names listed. Only botanical names and/or common names.

Drink lots of it.
Drink lots of water.

No caffeine, no processed food, no sugar. No tea, only herbal tea, at least for the first few days.

Stick to fruit and veg, mostly raw for a day, max 2 days, then shift onto wholegrains, legumes etc. and shift slowly back onto your regular diet.

Simple.

WHAT???!!!scared
I don't like bananas on their own too much, but I absolute LOVE banana cake, muffins, smoothies, on top of cereal, in porridge..mmm! pig

As for the detox, I would say raw, natural, preferably organic foods. Green Smoothies, salads, soups, etc.
The book Skinny B*tch has some good tips on staying healthy and also on detoxes. happy

Yeah it's great! It definitely does use 'Tough Love' (i.e. calls you a lazy sh*t, etc.) ,but it is very inspiring and some bits are just plain hilarious (obviously not the bits about animal cruelty. More like the start of the chapter on dairy when it says "Go suck your mother's t*ts. Go on. Think that's strange? Well, it is." [or something along those lines]) laugh

I've done it a number of times when I start feeling sluggish/bloated from too many chips and sugary things. Usually I drink plenty of tea and eat mostly berries and drink extra fruit/vegetable juices. Works quite well for me.

Detoxing is something your liver does naturally over the course of one to two weeks, but obviously it helps if you aren't putting new toxins in.

So, cut out junk food, I find it helps to start the day on a high note, so I usually have a fruit smoothie for breakfast, for the first couple of days I endeavour to only eat raw food, and then from then on I make sure everything I eat is home-cooked, well balanced and healthy.

The hardest thing to to kick is salt, I find. That's how people find themselves so addicted to fast food.
