I just finished a cleansing program, and I am feeling better then ever!

The meals were delicious, and these supplements allowed me to do this as naturally and efficiently as possible. This seven-day plan will cleanse your body so that you can more easily shred unwanted body fat and increase lean muscle mass.

If you are feeling lethargic, slow, bloated, or ill; or if you are experiencing problems with your digestive system, then a 7-day detox might be just what you need.

5 Detox Supplements

Use the following 5 supplements as directed:

  1. Multivitamin

    Choose a high-potency multivitamin with selenium, molybdenum and zinc. I prefer raw food multivitamins, because they break down easier and won’t give you any stomach problems.

  2. Choline and Methionine

    Choline and Methionine are known as lipotropic factors, meaning these supplements will regulate fat metabolism and increase the flow of bile.

  3. Vitamin C

    A water-soluble vitamin, vitamin C aids in detoxification. It also helps to decrease some of the potential side effects of cleansing your body, such as headache or nausea.

  4. Milk Thistle

    This herb has many positive effects on the liver. It is an antioxidant, assists in liver cell regeneration, and is particularly useful if you have there has been excess alcohol or fat consumption.

  5. Dandelion Root

    Dandelion roots helps to remove excess water weight from the body while simultaneously increasing the flow of bile.

5 Detox Foods

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Choose food sources that are high in vitamin C and glutathione, which are essential for detoxification. Additionally, add the following 5 healthy foods into your diet to promote detox:

  1. Artichokes

    These plant compounds are known as caffeoylquinic acids. These acids increase the flow of bile and help to digest fats.

  2. Beets

    The main nutrient in beets is betaine. This promotes the regeneration of liver cells and the flow of bile, while simultaneously having a beneficial effect on fat metabolism.

  3. Broccoli

    Broccoli and other members of the brassica family that include: cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale and kohlrabi, support the liver’s detoxification enzymes.

  4. Onions and Garlic

    Onions and Garlic are rich in sulfur-containing compounds, which will lead to the process of sulfication. Sulfication is the main detoxification pathway for environmental chemicals and certain drugs, food additives, etc. These foods are also very helpful with the elimination of harmful heavy metals from your blood stream.

  5. Protein

    Protein PowderProtein is required by the liver for detox. Beans, nuts, seeds, quinoa, protein powder. Some people may choose to eat fish in moderation.

If you are new to juicing try the Apple, Carrot, Ginger and Spinach. These smoothies are very tasty and a good place to start if you have never tried juicing. There are endless possibilities here so have fun with it!


This can be made in any basic fruit & vegetable juicer. Blend together:

  • 8 Medium Carrots
  • 2 Apples (I prefer Royal Gala or Braeburn)
  • Slice of root Ginger (to taste)
  • 1 head of spinach

Don’t try to find a shortcut that will leave you feeling restless and unsatisfied. Know that you must keep working hard and diligently to experience what is seemingly no progress. As time goes on you will spend more time on the plateau then on the rise. But if you put enough thought, labor, love, and diligent work you are guaranteed to experience the epiphanies that are staggered between your plateaus insuring your success!

In Strength,

  1. What is the dosing on the supplements?
    For the diet, is food limited to the selection of 5 foods listed above?
    What should the exercise be like during this week?
    Are other additional supplements acceptable during these 7 days?

    • 1) Whatever is says on the bottle.
      2) No, it is not limited to those foods, but those foods should comprise the majority of your diet.
      3) Hard and heavy.
      4) Whatever else you want to take within reason. Try to keep it clean.
