It's good to give your body a detox a few times a year to help flush out toxins. This two-week detox diet isn't just for summer and it will help you lose 7lb in two weeks by eating lots of fruit and veg.

What is the detox diet?

The Detox Diet is a two-week, low-fat plan that could help you lose weight and make your skin appear healthier and firmer. It's packed with fresh foods including loads of fruit and veg that will detox your system as you go.

If you follow the two-week plan, you can expect up to 7lb. If you repeat it straight afterwards, you could lose another 4-5lb. Each day comes with a motivating thought to spur you on!

The meal plans are low-fat and low-calorie while still being filling so you won't go hungry. This means you won't be tempted to snack and the low-calorie intake means you'll lose weight.

The Detox Diet is designed to release a steady stream of energy so you won't get slumps after meals. In fact, after a few days you should find you've stopped craving sugary and fatty foods. Foods like berries and oily fish will give your skin a boost leaving it looking firmer and possibly even more toned!

Who is the detox diet good for?

It's great if you have a holiday or special event coming up in a few weeks that you want to feel fab for! The Detox Diet is also really good for anyone who thinks their skin needs a boost. 

What are the drawbacks?

You've got to really enjoy fruit and veg to follow this plan. Some of the lunch options might leave you hungry.

What do you do on the detox diet?
Follow the menu plans closely, but swap meals around if you don't like something.

Western life is toxification personified. Its ironic to think that when people talk of macrobiotic diet this or organic alternative that. Really all it means is the old fashioned way of eating. Since the whole processed era has crept in and given everything a buzz word, the plain and simple diet of yesteryear seems to have gone for good. Ironic when its really such a straight forward approach to eating.


i have not yet done the diet but this is my first to loose weight before i go to centre parks so whish me luck.
