7 Day Detox Plan

“Eating a well-balanced diet and pursuing a healthy lifestyle will eliminate the need to detox.”Your organs responsible for filtering out toxins like the liver, gut, skin and kidneys should be in good shape at all times to ensure the body constantly self-cleanse.” – Vanessa Coyne

Her philosophy is a way of life that improves and optimises the function of your body’s own built-in detoxification systems and I could not agree more! That is why I created a quick and easy 7 day detox plan that will help you feel better.

So how do we conduct a detox?

You do this by:

  • Decreasing the amount of toxins you put into your body and;
  • Supporting your detoxification and elimination systems.

The real work is what you do 90% of the time, day in and day out. Not what you do for a week of every year.

  • Consume natural foods and lean protein.
  • Eliminate processed foods and sugar from your diet.
  • Give your body a well-deserved break from stimulants such as coffee and sugar, convenience foods and mindless eating.

Here is a 7 day detox plan that is implementable and not too far from your comfort zone.

The 7 Day Detox Plan

When Waking Up:

Grocery List

To make your 7 day detox a bit easier, I’ve attached a free grocery list below. You can print it out and cross off what you won’t be buying and tick off items as you buy them.

A note on the grocery list: please take into consideration your portion sizes, finances, geographical location, allergies and so forth. If you wish to do the plan, pick a few options that work for you, scratch off everything else that isn’t doable!
