Post-Holiday Detox: A Delicious Diet to Eliminate Toxins & Lose Weight

The holiday season always brings lots of joy, fun, and also, some extra pounds on the body. No matter how hard we try to keep ourselves away from temptation we always ultimately surrender to delicious food. Perhaps we should (in moderation) – however, if moderation is not your thing, here is a delicious post-Christmas diet that will help you cleanse your body and lose those extra pounds.

Day 1: Fruit Day

Start the first day of your diet by eating only fruits. You can eat any fruits you like, however, it is suggested to eat mostly low-calorie fruits such as watermelons cantaloupe melons, or apples. Although there is no “prohibited” fruit, try to stay away from bananas as they are high in sugar.

Day 2: Veggie Day

Eat as many fresh, raw, or cooked vegetables as you want. You can have steamed or roasted squash with a little salt and pepper and turmeric for breakfast, a salad with romaine lettuce, spinach, beet, onion, almonds, olive oil, and lemon for lunch, and a bowl of mixed steam vegetables at night seasoned to your taste. You can even have one potato with butter! Moderation is the key!

Day 3: Fruit & Vegetables

On day 3 you can have a fruit salad in the morning, a salad with your favorite vegetables at lunch and as many steamed vegetables as you want for dinner, and a cup of your favorite low-sugar fruits.

Day 4: Detox Smoothies

For breakfast have a cup of green tea with lemon and a raspberry/banana smoothie. To prepare the smoothie add 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of flaxseed, 1 cup of raspberries, 1 banana, ¼ cup of spinach, 1 tbs of almond butter, and the juice of ½ a lemon.

For lunch prepare a green smoothie. Add ½ cup of almond milk, 4 celery stalks, 1 cucumber, 1 cup of kale, ½ green apple, ½ squeezed lime, 1 tbs of melted coconut oil, and 1 cup of pineapple.

For dinner prepare a blueberry/mango smoothie. Add 1 ½ cups of coconut water, 1 cup of blueberries, ½ cup of mango, 1 cup of kale, 1 tbs of lemon juice, ¼ avocado, ¼ tsp cayenne pepper and 1 tbs of flaxseed.

Don’t forget to drink lots of water all through the day and introduce grains and animal protein gradually!

If you are a vegetarian you can substitute animal protein with soy-based products (e.g. Tofurky) or lentils, which are high in protein.
