Choosing a detox diet
Today, there are many people turning to a detox diet so they can quickly and easily remove built-up toxins from their bodies. Some people choose to do a detox diet as a way to kick off a new diet or eating plan while others do them on an annual or bi-annual basis just to make sure they’re staying healthy.
We’ve compiled a list of our top 5 detox diets to help you decide which one would be most suited to you.
- The Master Cleanse

During the duration of the detox diet, you can only drink a special drink that is made up of water, lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. You’re also supposed to take laxatives every day which will help rid your body of all toxins and help you shed a few extra pounds quickly and easily.

- The Candida Cleanse
This detox diet is specifically designed to rid your body of excess fungus and yeast that exist naturally but can become problematic if there are too many of them. There are two different detox diets that you can choose from to do the candida cleanse. The first diet is 7 to 14 days long and involves eating only raw or steamed vegetables along with a liver drink and daily detox drink. The second diet is a colon detox diet that will have you only drinking the detox drinks and vegetable broths.
- The Clean Program
This detox diet lasts for 3 weeks and offers a little more freedom than the others. The program requires that you drink 2 of their flavoured shakes every day as well as several supplements that have been approved by the program. These two shakes are meant to replace breakfast and dinner. For lunch, you are able to choose your own meal from a list of pre-approved foods that will help you accomplish all of your detox diet goals.
Our favourite has to be the master cleanse, whilst it can be difficult to stick to at times the results are totally worth it.
