If summer has left you a little less than rejuvenated (AKA depleted), integrative physician Jeffrey Morrison, MD, recommends cutting out inflammatory foods and eating clean for ten days to balance out your symptoms, whether it’s poor quality sleep to increased allergies or PMS.

Here are his two steps to doing a food cleanse:

Foods to cut out: Anything processed, coffee, alcohol, grains, dairy, soy, and raw fish. (He also recommends avoiding nightshades, such as tomatoes and eggplants for a small toxin they contain.)

What to eat: Dr. Morrison, who runs Morrison Health in New York City, puts his patients on a rice-based protein shake, with a gluten-free fiber for breakfast, then they have another shake with a salad for lunch, and protein and veggies for dinner, he says.

You can also do it on your own, he says, by eating either an omelet or a piece of fruit (like an apple) for breakfast, lean protein and veggies for lunch, and a salad, piece of grilled trout, or chicken breast with steamed or grilled veggies for dinner.

If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, he recommends one cup of lentils or black beans as a substitute for the protein.
