Dr. Oz 3 Day Detox

As it says on Dr. Oz's site "Eliminate harmful toxins, restore your system, and reset your body with this detox cleanse from Dr. Oz. All you need is 3 days, a blender and $16 a day!" What a great time to get rid of all the toxins from last year and start the new year fresh!

Here's the three day plan and grocery list... printable PDF

Many reviews you will read on this will say that it costs more than $16 dollars a day. And you will spend more than $16 dollars a day but when you think about all the extra you will have, for the almond butter, the coconut oil, frozen fruit, almond milk, spinach, kale, all the supplements, and flaxseed, you will be able to continue eating healthy and be able to make some of these shakes and create some of your own. 

Breakfast Drink: This one was my favorite. I never realized how lemon juice blended with raspberries and bananas make an orange flavor... citrus... duh. 

Lunch Drink: You will read reviews that this drink is awful, harder to take down. It is my least favorite but it's not all that bad. It's a little thicker than the other two. And it seems to make more than the other two. When you get your extra snack drink... I would recommend using the breakfast or dinner one.

Dinner Drink: Many of the reviews say that this is the best drink. I beg to differ. It's still not so bad, however, the cayenne pepper does give it a kick. I just can't handle a spicy smoothy, it's an odd kick for me.

And REMEMBER to Drink lots of water!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Due to lack of great hot water at my place, I only did the detox bath one night; I suggest if you can, to do it every night! 

This Detox is 3 DAYS! That's easy! Practice Will Power! 

The most difficult part for me.....COFFEE! I think I have had at least a cup a day for the last 7 years of my life. So, this was the hard part.

My energy levels were still good, I did go to bed at 10:00 almost every night... Good sleep = happier healthier body!

The morning after the third day I weighed myself...and I lost a total of 7 pounds!! On average (from reviews I have read) most people lost around 5 pounds.

This is a detox to clean out the toxins and get you ready for the road of losing weight... if you do this detox and go back to eating cheeseburgers, you will gain that 7 pounds plus some. I am very happy to have lost 7 pounds but a lot of that could be water weight and getting those toxins out, so yes, I am not fooled that this is a definite 7 pounds but I will say that it's definitely a huge motivator in getting my ass back into gear and losing the FINAL 15!

"When you consume fewer calories, your body will burn the stored fat for energy, which can help you lose large amounts of weight quickly.  But, when you lose weight quickly, you are also likely to regain it as soon as you return to normal eating patterns.  Detox plans can slow down your metabolism, because your body goes into a starvation mode and tries to conserve calories for energy. However, not all detox plans are created equal.  Some will definitely help you lose weight naturally and gradually.  And, detoxifying your body will help to flush many of the stored toxins from your system, recharging your digestive system and all other body functions.  When your system is running more efficiently, weight loss can be faster.  Using a combination of healthy detox, such as juice detox, and exercise, you can rev up your system and boost your metabolism and immune system.  Having a clean slate for a diet and exercise program can mean better results from your weight loss program."

I would say this detox is similar to a juice detox... smoothie detox!
Good luck!

Before I started this detox it was somewhat frustrating because I couldn't find a ton of information on it. I had a lot of questions, but there's no real answer out there, at least from Dr. Oz to help answer those. If you have any questions, just shoot me a comment or question! I am here to answer anything and everything!

Here's the episode in two parts...  If it doesn't work at first, keep trying it will eventually
