Detox diet plans have become very popular in the weight loss world. The popular diet trend helps you lose weight fast, while flushing toxins from your body.
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 cookbook author. 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.
A 7 day detox diet can help you trim down for an event, or reset your cravings. For a faster detox diet, try this 3 Day Detox.

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(1) with removing toxins(2) 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 try to 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.
This Detox Diet Week slowly guides you into 2 all smoothie days, and gently back out. This way you gradually change your diet while boosting metabolism.
Detox Diet Plan Reviews
This Detox Diet Plan has bee extremely popular! People are losing up to 16 pounds in one week, and they are doing this while eating MORE food than before!
Before you skip this plan simply because the word “detox” is in it, understand that in this case, you will eat more food while on the detox diet plan, not less!
The idea that a “detox” is a fast was also Brough up by my on camera pal, Rachael Ray!
Rachael said that when she hears the words “Detox Diet” she thinks of someone hardly eating anything at all… And in the video below you can see that this detox diet plan, is the exact opposite!
Now, I know I’m talking about the book here (because I don’t often go on TV to talk about this website), but it is the same detox weight loss plan that I will review below…

Detox Diet Week Guide
The 7 day detox plan is relatively simple to follow. I will explain the plan for each of the 7 days, then I will give a visual guide to the detox week plan.
The 7 day detox diet plan is outlined below:
- Day 1: One Detox Smoothie | One Detox Salad | One Detox Meal | 2 Detox Snacks
- Day 2: One Detox Smoothie | Two Detox Salads | Two Detox Snacks
- Day 3: Two Detox Smoothies | One Detox Salad | Two Detox Snacks
- Day 4: Three Detox Smoothies | Two Detox Snacks
- Day 5: Three Detox Smoothies | Two Detox Snacks
- Day 6: One Detox Smoothie | Two Detox Salads | Two Detox Snacks
- Day 7: One Detox Smoothie | One Detox Salad | One Detox Meal | Two Detox snacks
As you see above, the 7 day detox plan gently guides you into two smoothie detox days. This will help maximize weight loss, and craving reset. If on these smoothie detox days, should you feel extra hungry, you can add another smoothie, or an addition snack.
Below, in the grid, you will see a visual example of the 7 day detox diet plan.
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.
Just be sure to use the downloadable Detox Meal Plan to schedule it all out.
The simple to follow Detox Diet Week can also be found in my Detox Week cookbook. You can find 3 other detox plans in the cookbook as well.
