Body Cleanse Diet: The 7-Day Detox Plan


Considering doing a body cleanse diet? There’s so many options out there and it’s really important to choose the right cleanse for you. In previous posts, we’ve discussed how to identify if you need to do a Cleansing Diet. We’ve supplied a how-to guide for the Master Cleanse Diet, as well a complete guide to the Cleanse Diet. Yet, many readers felt that the Master Cleanse diet is too much of a challenge, especially when done for a prolonged time.

If that sounds like you, don’t worry! With so many cleanse options out there, you can certainly find one that will work for you. That’s why, in this article, we will discuss a 7-day body cleanse diet plan which is more accessible for beginners. This body cleanse diet plan will not be a total starvation plan like the Master Cleanse diet, and as mentioned, can be effective in only 7 days.

The purpose of any cleanse diet plans is to cleanse your organs and detoxify your body at the same time. As an added bonus, they are often an effective way to lose weight rapidly due to the strict diet regime. Admittedly, this 7-day body cleanse diet plan will not be as effective as, say, the Master Cleanse diet if your aim is to lose weight fast. However, it can be as effective in detoxifying your body in an arguably safer way. This method will also shed a few weight when done correctly, so no worries on that front.

Without further ado, here is how you do the 7-day body cleanse diet.

What To Do

The most important thing before you start this body cleanse diet plan is to check your calendar and schedules. You will need to make the most of your 7 days, so find a week where you are free from parties, events, or functions that might hinder your plan. Try to find a week where you are also not too busy with work.

The first few days can be really rough since your body commonly will react to the sudden dietary change, including loose bowel movements or mild to a severe headache. At the very least, find a good day with a relatively easy schedule to start the diet since the ‘withdrawal’ symptom can last for 24 to 48 hours.

What You Should Avoid For 7 Days

You might find this list daunting but don’t be overwhelmed! We’re going to give you everything you need to know. You should avoid the following foods during the 7-day cleanse:

  • Milk products (except unsweetened yogurt)
  • Sugar, honey, artificial sweeteners including maple syrup
  • Coffee
  • Cigarettes
  • Alcohol
  • Grain products: wheat, barley, rye, oats, rice, and spelt in all forms
  • Dried fruits

Your Menu For 7 Days

Like we said, this diet is pretty lenient. It might be a significant diet change for you, but you’ll still have plenty to eat! You can consume as much of all of the foods on this list:

  • Fresh fruit (organic is best)
  • Fresh vegetables (again, organic is best)
  • Fish (fresh, frozen or canned)
  • Lean red meat and chicken without skin (note: limit this to two servings throughout the week)
  • Kidney beans, lentils, and chickpeas
  • Eggs (organic is best)
  • Organic extra virgin olive oil or organic, unrefined coconut oil
  • Seeds such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and raw unsalted sesame
  • Raw unsalted walnuts, almonds, cashews, macadamias
  • Decaffeinated green tea and white tea
  • One to three liters of water daily

Your Body Cleanse Diet Plan

  1. Start your day with a glass of lemon juice. Squeeze half of a lemon into a glass of lukewarm water. Drink before breakfast to kick-start your metabolism.
  2. Exercise is key! Try to exercise for a minimum of one hour every day with medium to vigorous intensity. You’ll be amazed how great you feel at the end of the 7-day cleanse.
  3. While your aim is to detox your body, don’t disregard the importance of detoxing your mind. Try to build in 15-minutes of meditation per day. You can do this with a book or podcast about meditation or even a yoga class.
  4. Raw foods are recommended during this body cleanse diet plan. Fill your days with salads, bowls of fruit and raw sides with your dinners.
  5. Drink a lot of liquid! Aim to drink three liters of liquid every day. This will have a great effect on your kidney detox. Purified or spring water is best, but you can supplement with controlled amounts of fresh fruit or vegetable juice. Herbal laxative tea or decaffeinated green tea is also a great option.
  6. A good bath will support circulation and help detoxify your skin. You can use natural fiber body brush, a salt bath, or loofah while you shower. Giving your body time to soak the toxins out is best.

This body cleanse diet program will provide you a relative freedom over other cleanse diet methods, such as the mentioned Master Cleanse diet. Try to do it for a full week and feel your body energized, your mind more relaxed, and not to mention, shed some weight.
