The 3 Day Detox Diet Plan Is The Easiest To Implement

The best way to start your detox career, at least in my opinion is with a 3 day detox diet program. It’ only 72 hours long, so even the weakest among us can handle it; and it’s because it’s so short, it cuts down on complications.

The 3 Day Detox Diet Plan

One of the issues I have with many of the diet plans today, whether they’re detox diets or regular diets, is the attention given to variety. Variety is the spice of life, but not when to comes to a detox. Detoxes are not meant to be an enjoyable experience, they’re a means to an end.

Even the word, “detox,” does that conjure images of happy times and soft flowers? No way, I picture someone huddled up in a corner, going through something most people will not want any parts of. Well guess what? A detox diet, thankfully, is nowhere close to that mental imagery I gave you, bit if it was – I would still do it; for the results it produces.

A detox allows you to reset the major systems that help to run your body, starting with the digestive system. Because everything in the body is interdependent, what happens to one area in the body, will affect all areas of the body.

So a detox, even though it may only focus on one area, will affect everything else; and it’s important that you allow your body time to rest, rejuvenate, and re-energize. So if that means eating the same three to four meals day-in-and-day-out, then that’s what I’m going to do to be able to get those benefits.

Instead, you get these clever marketers that twist the truth all the way around to get you to part with your hard-earned money; for a rehashed variance of a detox diet. And I get more mad at people that allow themselves to believe they go through something, which requires sacrifice, with virtually no pain, than the marketers themselves.

It’s like going out to buy a used car back in the day. I remember going with my older brother to buy a used car, several times growing up, and I noticed he always had my uncle with him. I realized it was because my uncle knew a lot about the cars that were being sold at that time, so it made sense to have someone, who knew what they were talking about, walk you through the process.

When I became old enough to own a car, I would take one of my friends at the time, by the name of Moose, who knew a ton about cars, out to help me hunt a car down. See, I went out and found someone who proved to me that they knew what they were talking about, and only then did I feel comfortable buying something because this person could help walk me through the buying process.

I see people online today looking for presentation instead of substance. I understand how you present yourself to the marketplace is important, but if a person is more interested in the design of a website, than the information they went online to research, how can I be upset at a marketer for taking their money; and delivering a crappy product?

First things first, if you want to be comfortable, forget about detoxing altogether. Your insides are going to go through hell, but at least you won’t have discomfort. If you want to create more health in your world, then get ready for some discomfort – because that’s exactly what a detox is.

You can, however, mitigate this with some sensible planning, and creating a small list of salads, smoothies, teas, soups, and juices you can use to get you through the process. Think about what I just outlined for you – five different consumable items you can use during a cleanse, does this really sound like you’re doing hard time on Alcatraz?

And a 3 day detox is a short enough window, that by day three, when you’re about to lose your mind completely, you know that you’ll be off the cleanse within a few short hours. I always tell my private clients, that days three and four are the worst during a cleanse.

It seems like the body knows that I’s going to have to deal without eating any “normal” foods going forward, and it lashes out at you in a bad way. Once you move past day four, you level out, and it becomes a much easier process to deal with.

If you’re just getting started though, the best place to start is with a 3 day detox. Of course I can go into all the specifics of a detox, but as I’ve mentioned many times here on this site, I teach principles – not practices.

Well that’s not entirely true, I teach practices to my private clients and members of our newsletter, but the public, people like you that end up on this site looking for freebies, I know nine out of ten of you won’t implement half the stuff I write about anyway – so why go into details?

I’d rather teach you a principal like resetting your system regularly with something like a cleanse or a fast. You can choose to do a fast, which can last 1 or 3 days, or a cleanse, which can last as long as 30 days in some instances.

Some people do 4 day fasts, others do 90 day cleanses, I’m not here to tell you what’s right or wrong, I’m just here to let you know that if you do not regularly schedule a detox for yourself, then you’re putting yourself at risk for developing disease in your body – how you go about it is entirely up to you.

If you want to learn more principals, I suggest you join our newsletter, and get access to free email mini-course I put together that outlines seven key principals you can use to help you detox your body regularly.

Finding Juice Cleanse Recipes To Detox For Better Health

When people hear the phrase “juice cleanse,” they can get all bent out of shape, because they visualize all their favorite foods going away, and being replaced with creepy-looking juices they have to  pound down all day long. And you know what’s kind of interesting? They’re absolutely right!

Hey, I’m a health enthusiast, not a health expert; so I don’t fake myself out like I know many experts tend to do. They’ll tell you, it’s not going to be nearly as bad as you think it is. It’s going to taste like this, you can get it taste almost like that – it’s all nonsense. Crappy food tastes unbelievable at times, and it’s why we continue to eat it.

With that being said, the reason why we love the bad foods that we eat on a regular basis, is because our taste buds have de-sensitized due to all the toxins we have in our body. If we were “cleaned out” so to speak, we would not have to fight our way through something like a juice cleanse. But that’s the whole point of a cleanse, isn’t it? We need to get cleaned out, and it has to start somewhere, if it’s going to happen at all – so that means we need to bite the bullet and get ready to go through the process.

Now here’s the thing – even though the title of this has the word cleanse in it, it really isn’t. To be more specific, we at Detox.CleansingDiet.org believe a cleanse is different from a fast, and when you consume only juices, like were talking about in this article, that’s essentially what a fast is. A cleanse is made up of juices, smoothies, fruits, salads, and basically anything water-based – which is why a cleanse can last up to 30 days, but a juice detox (like we like to call a juice fast) can last only a few days at most, before it starts doing more harm than good in the body.

When I did my first juice detox I nearly lost my mind, and that was because I did it all wrong to be quite honest. Today, I know how to do it so that it’s a breeze, but for someone getting started, I can tell you this – it’s going to be hard, it’s going to suck at times, and you’re not going to like it. But couldn’t that be said about going to work? It’s going to be hard getting up every day to go to work, at times it’s going to totally suck, and there will be times when you’re not going to like it – but you do it anyway!

Why do we go to work? Because we want that paycheck at the end of the week, to be able to provide for our family, right? Well, that’s the same thing here. We do a juice detox because of what we want to be able to do for our body; and that’s being healthy. I don’t go through a fast because I really like it. I’d be lying if I said that. I do it because I know it’s going to help me stay healthy, and if that means I have to suck it up, and go through some discomfort – not pain – just discomfort, for a few days to achieve that goal, then bring it on!

Not to wander too far off the path here, but one of the beefs I have with our society is not how fat we are as a nation today, but how soft we’ve become as a people. I’ve known some fat people that are plain hard as nails; and they’re fat because they want to be fat – plain and simple. These folks are more than capable of shedding it all off if they really wanted to, but for whatever reason, choose to live their life that way. Doesn’t make much sense to me, but hey – to each his own.

What I’m talking about is all the soft, whiny talk that goes on now.

  • “Oh man, my wifi isn’t working, what am I going to do?!”
  • “I have to walk to the store? Can’t you drive me?”

Or in this case,

  •  “I have to stop eating solid food for a few days, so I can let my organs rest and revitalize? How am I going to do that?”

I think we totally forget where we come from as a nation. We came from people that had to go through unbelievable hardships to be able to develop the land as it is today – so if you have to “rough it” for a few days without food, is that too much to ask?

I’m not saying, no water, juice, or food for three days – that would be hard; and that’s what many of our ancestors had to go through at times. I’m saying drink fresh juices, with nutrients in them, for a few days – that’s it! So helpfully that step back, and view of the big picture, makes this an easier process.

Now the easiest way to find juice cleanse recipes is, of course, the same way you came across this article – the internet. However, the reason for this article was to give you a baseline for how to go around searching. If you come across recipes that tell you to blend foods together, you know that’s not a juice detox, that’s a detox cleanse. If a recipe, or program, outlines juicing during the day, and eating fruit at might – that’s also a cleanse. If it stresses juicing during the day, and blending only green superfoods at night – that’s a cleanse as well. A juice detox is a juice fast; and a fast is drinking only liquids.

Once you have this two labels in your mind, you can find a ton of recipes out there that fit well into both categories. Happy hunting, and until next time – learn to take good care of yourself, you’re really the only who can – Nicolas
