An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Well, how about two cups of fruits, four cups of vegetables, a kale smoothie and a salad for dinner. Too much?

Well, according to a listener this morning, I'm supposedly causing more harm to my health than anything. Something about glycogen levels in my liver or kidneys (whatever that means). I'm not an expert when it comes to this stuff, but it has to at least be better than eating a bucket of fried chicken—am I right?

Before I continue this discussion, here's how the conversation between Michael Rock and me went down that opened up the floodgates on the caller line:

[MICHAEL ROCK AND GAZELLE'S CONVERSATION]

 

Now, some part of that conversation triggered this one listener in particular. Take a listen to what this caller had to say; it's actually quite entertaining:

[LISTENER'S RESPONSE]

 

OK, with all due respect, I do appreciate and acknowledge the fact that she cares about my health. That restored my faith in humanity. However, my question to this listener (I wish I would have asked for her name) is simply this:

What's the difference between taking advice from someone who manages a house as opposed to the internet, or in fact, the trainer who provided this information to my girlfriend and me in the first place?

I understand that eating nothing but veggies and fruits can be a caution flag to your health over time, but again, I'm only "cleansing" for three days. Over time, I'll be adding proteins, carbs, and fiber to my daily intake that will eventually balance everything out.

Do I recommend this cleanse to everyone? I will answer only by saying "to each their own." Different diets and cleanses work differently for every individual. How you approach it and how your body reacts will be the answer behind the question "does it work?"

I guess I'll find out in a week.
