3-Day Detox Diet Plan to Lose Weight

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a simple 3-day detox diet plan to help you improve your skin, give you some clean energy, and lose some weight? Look no further!

There are only 5 foods included in this detox.

The 5 foods are:


  • Blueberries for antioxidants and energy
  • Greek yogurt (fat is okay, but must have 9g of sugar or less) for probiotic and gut help as well as protein
  • Spinach for vitamin A and fiber
  • Red onion for antioxidants and skin health
  • Almonds for healthy fats and protein

This is important… You will be eating the same 3 meals for all 3 days of the detox.   Sure, it seems repetitive, and upon first look, you may balk and think that it’s not enough food to keep you feeling full.

The body can actually live on much less than you think.



This is NOT some starvation diet. We’re simply eating LESS and eating CLEANER to give the body a break from its usual grind.

The carbohydrate detox and low calories will help clean out your system and can jumpstart a great weight loss plan if that’s what you’re looking for!

Oh and one more thing: you will also have to give up coffee during the 3-day detox.

Coffee is truly great for you! But the whole point of a detox is limiting the substances put into your body to give the body a chance to cleanse. So, unfortunately, this will mean a 3-day hiatus from coffee.

Never fear though, you can absolutely add it back into your diet after the detox is over! Try drinking green tea during your detox instead, if you really need the caffeine boost.

Your detox meals are listed below! Make sure to read at the bottom about what you can drink during the detox as well.

3-Day Detox Diet Plan



Breakfast

Blueberry Spinach Protein Smoothie 

  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt (fat is okay, but it must have less than 9g of sugar per serving)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Directions: Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

You can also add ice to the smoothie to make it colder. You will want to add a little more water in that case.

For those of you that need a bigger breakfast to tie you over until lunch, you can also cook some egg whites with sodium-free seasoning (I recommend pepper, basil, thyme, and oregano).

Lunch



Yogurt and Fruit Bowl

  • 1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt (fat is okay, but it must have less than 9g of sugar per serving)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup almonds

Directions: Scoop the yogurt into a bowl and add the toppings.

You can also add cinnamon if you’d like!  That’s one of my personal favorite toppings.

If you find still find yourself hungry after eating, you can make a small spinach salad as well.  Use apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar as dressing.

Dinner



Sweet and Crunchy Spinach Salad

  • 3 cups of fresh spinach
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • Sliced red onions (1/2 cup to 1 cup depending on preference)
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, or apple cider vinegar

Directions: Toss salad in a large bowl with no more than 1 tbsp of vinegar.


Detox Drinks

Lemon Water Burst

  • 12-16oz of water
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 lime
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 1/2 orange




This will give your body the pick me up it needs while helping to shuttle the toxins from your system. It will help minimize your headaches and improve your energy levels during the detox.

Other approved drinks: lemon water, other unsweetened tea besides green tea, herbal tea, apple cider vinegar water
