Detoxing is a great way to help your body rid itself of toxins, and a natural byproduct is that you slim down due to the release of stored body waste. If you’ve ever attempted a regular diet before and had limited success with it, it could be that your body wasn’t able to absorb the nutrients, and the cravings for junk food became too intense. If you start with a detox program you should find that other diet programs are now more effective and you can stay on them more easily.
This is a comprehensive diet program that gives you action items in the form of daily assignments to follow. It not only talks about food, but also helps with things like getting back into the circadian rhythm of life, and getting reconnected to the Earth’s energy field. It’s nice to see that they are taking into account several different factors that go into helping the body release stored toxins, and returning your system back to an optimal state.
This is a four-week program that is designed to get you slimmed down and feeling better without the need to go to extremes. The great part about this program is that you can actually attend a class, and if you can’t it’s available on DVD.
It’s nice knowing that the same principles that are used in a one-on-one session can be relayed through video so you can follow it no matter where you are. Like any true detox diet there is no calorie counting required here, you are focusing more on the cleansing properties of the foods you’re eating, rather than quantity or numbers.
If you can’t see yourself committing to a longer term detox program, this one might be for you. Suitable for a long weekend, even the busiest person can find time in their schedule for a little recuperation in the form of detoxing. They’ve clocked the calorie count at 1500 a day for the three days, so it’s nice that they’re not trying to starve you and are giving you enough to thrive on. They are serious about detoxing here, and don’t allow you to chew gum or pop a breath mint while on it.
Here’s one that has some flexibility to it, allowing you to stay on or hop off as you see fit once you have the first week completed. They get into specifics as to what you should be eating for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as snacks. You do retain control because it will be up to you to decide which fruits and vegetables to use, so you’ll want to make sure that you’re buying the good stuff, paying a little extra for the organic versions. They also have an easy-to-remember list of things to avoid, and the combination of cutting out harmful things and bringing in healthy things is a good one-two punch.
One week is all it takes to get your body turned around as far as toxicity levels go. Rather than use things like supplements or smoothies, they’re showing you which foods you should eat, which foods you shouldn’t, what the purpose of the diet is, and what you can expect from completing it. This helps keep your expectations in check, and also helps to understand what your actions are doing to your body. The information provided also applies to detox diets in general, so it’s good reading.
If you didn’t want to be heavily involved in your cleanse as far as preparing a lot of cleansing foods, this could be for you. The system is set up so that you pick what kind of cleanse you want to do, buy a package of prepared juices, and follow the recommended instructions. The taste of the juice is supposed to be very good, which will make this easier to stick with. They even have a detox plan for brides to be, so if you’re trying to slim down and have a clear complexion on your wedding day, this could be a better way to go than a fad celebrity diet.
Here’s a 1 day, 3 day, or 5 day cleanse where the juices come in mason jars, and you’ll have an assortment of fruits and vegetables to consume each day. The nice part about this diet is that it’s fairly simple to follow, since all of the instructions are laid out for you and everything you need is provided in one handy package. It might be a good idea to work your way up to the 5 day cleanse, and just start with one day to see how you feel, and to build up your efficacy to stay on it longer next time.
They say this is the most endorsed and supported cleansing program out there, a bold statement with all of the competing cleanses and programs. It was developed by a doctor, and a cardiologist at that, which does give it the edge against certain detox diets that just sort of developed mysteriously over the years. The program is meant to last for 21 days, and is nice because it gives you an exit strategy by telling you what you should be doing after the cleanse. Many people cleanse and then go right back to the old ways to repeat the cycle.

This cleanse lasts 3 to 5 days and gets its name from the cooler that shows up at your doorstep with your necessary cleansing items. If you go with the 3 day option you only get one cooler sent to your home, and if you opt for the 5 day you’ll get a 2nd shipment. The instructions are paint-by-numbers easy, because each bottle of juice you need to drink is numbered in the order you’re supposed to take it. No more guessing or referring back to the plan to see what you should drink.
