Detox Diet Week: The 7 Day Weight Loss Cleanse

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.

If you are still looking for more recipes, as well as 3 other Detox Diet Plans including a one month, 3 month, and longer weight loss detox plans, check out my best selling book Lose Weight By Eating Detox Week.

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.

7 day diet plan for weight loss

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!

best detox diet

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…

7 day cleanse

The 7 day detox is not only filled with healthy foods, you may actually find you will eat MORE on this 7 day detox plan, than you are now!

Below you will find the Detox Week Plan, lots of Detox Weight Loss Recipes, even a 7 day cleanse meal planner! So keep scrolling…

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.

Detox Diet Week Guide

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.

Some tips to help you make in making the weight loss smoothie recipes:

  • Add the greens in first, this will help the blender process faster.
  • Instead of adding juice or almond milk to continue to thin your detox smoothie, add water. It’s zero calories!
  • Clean your blender as soon as you’ve poured the detox smoothie, this will help avoid food sticking.

Detox Diet Meal Recipes

7 day weight loss detox

These detox meals are 30% lean protein and 70% vegetables, so if you have a favorite chicken recipe, use it in lieu of one of these recipes, enjoy it with some grilled veggies or a salad.

Just do your best to skip bread, pastas and sugar this week. I’m not against carbs, but for maximum results it’s good to avoid flour or sugar based carbs on this cleanse diet week.

Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps

I make 2 servings of this detox diet week recipe, and put out tortillas for my daughter, this way I don’t have to make an extra meal for her.

You can also make a few extra servings of this detox plan meal for leftovers, they are helpful if you have a family to cook for on the smoothie diet only days… you won’t want to cook on those days and you can just serve leftover fajitas in tortillas, atop a salad, or inside a quesadilla to family members not participating on the 7 day weight loss detox plan.

Leftovers are your friend, freeze them in individual servings to avoid snacking on them, and to ensure your freezer will be eventually packed with healthy homemade “TV Dinners.”

Veggie Omelet

Some of you may want to use your “Detox Meal” in the morning, or for a Sunday brunch. So I wanted to include an all day breakfast option. Omelets are great any time of the day, I added cheese here in place of meat, so if you want to add meat you need to take out the cheese, leftover chicken or chopped turkey bacon work great here.

Eggs, onions, bell pepper, and avocado are all great cleansing diet ingredients! You may notice these fat burning ingredients are in most of the detox weight loss recipes.

Detox Drinks Guide

one week detox

You’re trying to rid your body of toxins this week, whether it’s to lose weight, to clear up your skin or just to feel healthier you’ll need to flush your system with lots and lots of detox drinks like fruit infused water, a gallon of water a day to be exact.

In the below section we will discuss what you should, and should not drink while on a weight loss detox.

Recipes for weight loss cleanse recipes below can be consumed anytime during the 7 day smoothie detox, so drink up!

Detox Diet Week…What to drink and what not to drink:

On a Detox Diet Week- DO drink fruit infused waters:

I’ve included some fruit infused detox waters below for those of you who don’t like the taste of water, or need a push to help you drink more, just be sure not to use any artificial sweeteners in your water.

On a Weight Loss Detox- DON’T drink processed water flavorings:

Those little packets of flavoring that people add to their water actually are packed full of toxins that cause fat storage, weight gain, migraines, breakouts… the list goes on and on, so skip the flavor packets and go all natural.

On a 7 Day Detox- DO drink coffee or tea (in moderation):

What about coffee? I’ve got you covered, ideally it’s good to skip coffee during this Detox Diet Week, but that’s not always so easy to do. So limit yourself to one cup per day, you can have 1-2 cups of organic herbal tea, so if you drink coffee in the morning, choose herbal tea for your second cup in the afternoon.

On a Detox for Weight Loss- DON’T have fake sugars

Now that you know coffee in moderation is ok, lets talk about what to put in it. We are trying to skip processed sugars this week, so in lieu of sugar or flavored creamers (many with the same issues as the little flavor packets in the water paragraph above) choose an all natural creamer and an all natural sweetener.

On a 7 Day Detox Plan- DO try low calorie creamers and all natural sweeteners

I like coconut creamer and honey, but you can also try organic half and half, and coconut sugar or maple syrup (don’t knock it till you try it, it’s good!) I’ve included an all natural under 50 calorie latte recipe below for those of you with coffee house tendencies.

Detox Diet Week Conclusion

Often people want to continue after week #1, they feel amazing, look amazing and want to continue. If you want to continue it is perfectly safe, but you may become burnt out.

For those of you who want to continue for multiple weeks I recommend you do a full week of the Smoothie/Salad/Meal combo before you go back to a full Detox Diet Week. So if you were to do a full month this it what it would look like:

Week #1 Detox Diet Week Guide

Week #2 Detox Smoothie, Big Bowl Salad, One (1) Detox Meal each day for 7 days.

Week #3 Detox Diet Week Guide

Week #4 Detox Smoothie, Big Bowl Salad, One (1) Detox Meal each day for 7 days.
