Detox Diet Week: The 7 Day Weight Loss Cleanse
From time to time I make media appearances or participate in photo shoots and have to really look my best. To ready myself for these jobs I do a Detox Diet Week. I do this to reduce bloat, trim a few pounds, clear up my skin and ensure my long hair will shine under the lights.
I also participate in the detox cleanse when I feel I’ve gotten too obsessed with food, a common issue for a food writer, and I recommend it to people who need a boost in weight loss, want to cleanse their bodies and in general just feel better.
This Detox Diet Week is a filling plan that slowly eases you into the detox smoothie only days. You get to eat real meals as you gently ease into the two day smoothie detox cleanse and can lose between 5-15 pounds in the 7 day cleanse diet program.
Why Does The Detox Diet Week Work?
The reason this Detox Diet Week works so well is the plethora of raw fruits and vegetables. Raw fruits and vegetables help scrub your body clean, while removing toxins and extra body fat.
Raw fruits and vegetables have more nutrients than cooked produce so when you have a metabolism boosting, beautifying vegetable like raw broccoli it’s more effective than steamed or grilled broccoli, simply because it’s still in the raw state.
So be open to this very raw way of eating and before you know it you will be feeling satisfied and fabulous while detoxing and losing weight.
Below you’ll find the Detox Diet Week Guide, 5 new detox smoothie recipes (plus a link to 10 more), 5 big bowl salad recipes, 3 detox meal options (along with more links to more meal options), detox snack options, a detox water / drinks guide and a detox meal plan to keep you on track.
To give your weight loss an additional boost, I recommend using detox water for an extra detox cleanse.
You can have the detox meals in any order you like on this 7 day cleanse. Most people like the detox smoothies in the morning, salads at lunch and detox meal recipes in the evening, but you can go in any order you like.
