It's Not Too Early To Prepare For Summer 2020!

If you’re only looking to lose a few kg, a detox for weight loss might be a great solution for you.

While there are toxins you must avoid ingesting, most detox regimes involve drastic calorie reduction. As far as we’re concerned, these won’t cleanse you of anything except some weight and water. If you plan to lose a bit of weight, a detox diet can help. If your weight loss journey is longer, the detox diet can get you off to a great start. That's why we've packaged a 3-day detox diet for you.

3 day detox diet

The diet is a very low-calorie, low-carbohydrate diet. That means it is not nutritionally complete. But it won't pose any major risks if you follow it for just three days. You will lose weight for two reasons. First, the calories consumed are less than what any adult would normally burn. Therefore your body will use up stored fat and your weight will drop. Second, when limiting carbohydrates in the diet, you’ll lose water weight from the body. When carbohydrate is reintroduced, though, water weight is regained.

Check out our Fitfam 3-day detox diet below:

3 day detox diet

This diet involves replacing breakfast, lunch, and snacks with juices, soups, and smoothies, while still allowing a nutritious dinner at the end of the day. Breakfast is a cup of lemon water followed by a different green juice every day to help kick-start liver health. This is followed by a filling mid-morning smoothie snack, a hearty soup for lunch and a protein-rich healthy dinner. Our diet is designed to revitalize rather than restrict, so if you feel very hungry between lunch and dinner you can add in a cup of soup.
