Detox Diet Plan For 5 Days

0

Let’s get started … The best detox diet plan for 5 days of all times is an effective yet easy to follow diet. How to do a 5-day diet plan? Well, it means that you will eat only healthy food during the period of five days. You should also think that this diet actually consists of two steps. The first step consists of preparation before making a diet, and further we want to figure out how to make a cheap detox diet for the first 5 days. The best method for 5 days’ diet is the method of detoxification. The diet is designed for a week and if you stick to it, you will be surprised about the changes in your body for sure.

The Annual 5-Day Detox

post__featured-image

Twenty nineteen was an amazing year for food and drink here at goop, but it’s a new year—a new decade—and what better way to kick it off than with our annual detox? As a refresher, this five-day cleanse is inspired by Dr. Alejandro Junger’s basic elimination diet, outlined in the Clean program. For more of a refresher or for an intro to detox, see all the FAQs on cleansing that Gerda Endemann, our senior director of science and research, answered.

  1. caffeine
  2. alcohol
  3. dairy
  4. gluten
  5. corn
  6. nightshades (tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, potatoes)
  7. refined sugar
  8. shellfish
  9. white rice
  10. eggs and soy (although we’ll use fermented gluten-free soy products, like miso and tamari, in small amounts)

But what we really want to talk about is what we’ve got here: a guide full of delicious, nourishing breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks that, with a little planning and the help of your handy schedule and shopping list, should be simple to pull off. It’s more fun to detox with a partner, so a lot of these recipes serve two—your spouse, roommate, or work wife can join in, and you should still have some leftovers to relieve you of cooking duties a few times throughout the week.

January is a good time to help our bodies catch up with detoxification—to give our detox organs a chance to rest and recover. It’s a good time to think about removing environmental toxins where you can and to figure out whether particular foods cause problems for you.

One more important thing to keep in mind as you detox—possibly the best and worst buzz phrase of the 2010s—is self-care. That’s the spirit of this detox. We hope you feel inspired and empowered to take some extra time to cook yourself food you’ll love, soak in the tub, go for a walk, meditate, read a great book, do a face mask…just take time for you in some way. The goal is for you to be more in tune with your body, how it responds to the food you eat, and what it likes, dislikes, and needs.

That also means: Do your own thing if it’s not feeling right. We set up a schedule of meals that we think is balanced and logistically sound, but if you still feel hungry after a meal, have some more so you feel satisfied and nourished. Our detox guide is not about deprivation, and it doesn’t have to be prescriptive. There are lots of ways to make this experience your own.

THE PLAN

FOR PLANT-BASED EATERS

Every year we hear from people requesting a more vegan-friendly detox. This year, we made a separate three-day plant-based reset, and we tried to make this five-day plan more veg-focused. There are some recipes with chicken and salmon—below are suggestions to easily make them vegan.

BREAKFAST BROTH

Skip: the chicken carcass.

Add: 8 to 10 dried shitake mushrooms.

You won’t get the collagen in the plant-based version, but you can still get a deeply rich and comforting broth.

LETTUCE CUPS WITH CHICKEN, KELP NOODLES, AND RED CURRY ALMOND BUTTER

Skip: chicken.

Add: ½ sliced avocado for healthy fats and 1 tablespoon hemp seeds for crunch and extra protein.

CHICKEN AND CAULIFLOWER RICE WITH ALL THE HERBS

Skip: chicken.

Add: 2 cups frozen or fresh peas for protein and fiber.

SLOW-ROASTED SALMON WITH SHALLOTS, GARLIC, CORIANDER, AND LEMON

Skip: the salmon and the thinly sliced lemon.

Add: 1 16-ounce can cannellini beans for protein, iron, and zinc.

This is the only recipe where the directions will change when you veganize it; follow these updated instructions:

Place the shallots, garlic, coriander seeds, and olive oil in an oven-safe skillet. Heat the pan over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, until the oil starts to sizzle and the shallots and garlic become fragrant and golden. Remove them with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel-lined plate.

Carefully add a well-drained can of beans and a pinch of salt to the infused oil, and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Then add the spinach, folding it in until just wilted. Spoon the beans-and-greens mixture over brown rice or quinoa and squeeze fresh lemon over the top. Top with the garlic-shallot-and-coriander-seeds mixture for some crunchy texture to go with the creamy beans.

BREAKFAST

  • Pumpkin Spice and Greens Smoothie – This smoothie is creamy and spiced—reminiscent of pumpkin pie—but thanks to the spinach, almond butter, and pumpkin purée, it’s a filling, nutrient-dense on-the-go breakfast.
  • Breakfast Broth – Starting the day with bone broth can feel so comforting, and making a base broth early in the week takes most of the work out of it. Before serving, all you have to do is fortify the broth with some incredibly flavorful mix-ins, like miso and turmeric, making it that much more satisfying. It may be called breakfast broth, but it’s also great to sip in the afternoons, so feel free to work it into your snack routine during your detox.
  • Sweet Potato Two Ways – You can have it sweet and savory: We think the sweet potato tastes as delicious prepared with tahini, dates, and pepitas as it does topped with avocado, red onion, and cilantro. Baking the sweet potato the night before makes this quicker to prepare in the morning—warm it back up in the oven and finish with the toppings

LUNCH

  • Lettuce Cups with Chicken, Kelp Noodles, and Red Curry Almond Butter – We love a lettuce cup—it’s a great vehicle for all types veggies and protein. This version has a bit more heft because of the kelp noodles, and the addictive sweet-savory almond butter sauce rounds the whole thing out.
  • Crunchy Salad with Greener Goddess Dressing – Sure, a salad for detox doesn’t sound very original, but this one keeps it interesting. Start with super hydrating and crunchy veggies like cucumber, snap peas, and fennel; add in some protein; and finish with a garlicky, herby dressing. It’s simple but so not boring.
  • Pesto Kelp Noodle Salad with Arugula – If you’re wary of kelp noodles, this recipe is a great place to start. They have almost no flavor, which really lets the pesto shine here. And they have a pleasant chewy texture that, along with the fresh arugula, is a nice foil to the richness of the sauce.

DINNER

  • Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Soup with All the Herbs – Our detox version of a classic chicken and rice soup is lighter and brighter, but it still comforts. Finishing the soup with lots of herbs and fresh lemon juice is key, so don’t skip it
  • Roasted Veggies with Black Pepper Sauce Black pepper chicken is one of GP’s favorite dishes (it was one of the first recipes she shared on goop), so we wanted to riff on it for this year’s detox. We eliminated the sugar in the sauce, letting the natural sweetness of the coconut aminos do the work, and simply served it over roasted vegetables.
  • Slow-Roasted Salmon with Shallots, Garlic, Coriander, and Lemon Recipes like this one show that clean eating can be so delicious. Slow-roasting the salmon in a fragrant oil infused with aromatics, like shallots, garlic, and coriander, feels almost too easy to taste so good.
  • Creamy Cashew and Butternut Squash Soup – Adding cashews to a puréed soup adds richness and body, and it bumps up the protein, giving you some more lasting energy
  • Vegetable Moo Shu – Ordering in is a good Friday night move, so naturally we had to do a takeout classic to close out the last night of detox. This veggie moo shu works for a couple of reasons: It uses up vegetables left over from earlier in the week, it comes together quickly, and it’s easy to clean up.

SNACKS

  • Toasty Nori CrispsAs addictive as potato chips, but so much better for you
  • Dip Duo (Red Curry Almond Butter Dip and Greener Goddess Dip)Doing the goop five-day detox requires that you cook a lot, so we wanted to include plenty of recipes that can be used in multiple ways, with multiple meals. In addition to being delicious with crudités and seed crackers, this year’s dips also double as dressings and sauces to be used throughout the week.

5-Day Detox Meal Plan

5 Day Detox Whole Foods

Are you feeling bloated and sluggish? Are you constantly craving unhealthy foods? If so, it might be time for a detox! A 5-day detox meal plan can help cleanse your body and get rid of toxins. This program is designed to help you eat healthy, whole foods and drink plenty of water. By the end of the 5 days, you should feel refreshed and energized!

Detoxing is the process of removing toxins from the body. There are many different ways to detox, but a 5-day detox meal plan is one of the easiest and most effective methods.

Why Should I Detox?

There are many reasons why you might want to detox. Maybe you’re feeling bloated and sluggish, or you’re constantly craving unhealthy foods. Detoxing can help rid your body of these cravings and get you back on track with eating healthy, whole foods.

5 Day Detox Plan

A 5 day detox meal plan is designed to help your body purge itself of toxins. During the 5 days, you will eat plenty of healthy, whole foods and drink plenty of water. This will help your body to flush out toxins and get rid of harmful chemicals.

  1. Find a 5-day period when you’re able to follow the meal plan provided below.
  2. Make modifications or adjustments to the grocery shopping list as needed for your health and preferences.
  3. Follow the gentle detox meal plan each day, and enjoy the benefits.

And here’s some great news: this 5-day detox will not leave you hungry, tired, or grumpy! The meal plan includes three meals a day plus snacks.

What foods are included in the Detox Meal Plan?

Your 5-day meal plan is filled with whole, unprocessed foods that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Here are some of the featured ingredients and their benefits for your body:

  • Plenty of fresh water – water helps flush out toxins from the body and is critical for helping the liver filter waste for the body. Also, your body uses water for all of its excretion functions. We’ll begin each morning by drinking a glass of lemon water to aid digestion.
  • Fresh veggies – the fiber in vegetables supports healthy digestion, helping the body eliminate toxins.
  • Fruit – these foods that are high in antioxidants that fight free radicals and other toxins, therefore helping your body fight disease.
  • Garlic – besides being delicious (and my husband’s favorite flavoring), garlic activates liver detoxifying enzymes and has antibacterial properties.
  • Olive oil – this healthy fat helps the body reduce harmful toxins and decreases levels of fat in the liver.

You’ll note that for some of the meals, added protein is an optional ingredient. You can make the decision whether to add a protein-based on factors such as your calorie needs, grocery costs, whether you want more of a “cleanse” experience, and whether you’re exercising during the detox.

What foods are not included in the Detox Meal Plan?

As provided to you, this meal plan is free of the following:

  • Processed food
  • Refined sugar
  • Refined carbs
  • Meat
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine

However, you can and should customize this plan based on what you decide to focus on during your 5-day detox. 

For example, if you drink three Venti Caffè Americanos every day leading up to the challenge and then go cold turkey on caffeine, you’ll likely spend the 5 days with raging headaches. Please do what makes sense for you, and ensure that your plan furthers your health goals while still being gentle on your body.

The meal plan and grocery list are designed for one person, but they can be easily adjusted for more people as needed.

Below is a full description of each day’s meals and how to prepare your meals. Let’s get started!

How To Successfully Complete A Detox

Please remember that this detox is designed to be gentle! Be patient and kind with yourself and don’t go to extremes with your meal plan. Here are a few tips for your comfort and success:

  • Drink plenty of pure, clean water throughout the 5 days (and beyond!). A good guideline to follow is to drink half your weight in ounces every day. So if you weigh 160 pounds, drink 80 ounces of water a day. That’s the equivalent of 10 8-oz glasses of water. During the detox, you may find that you need even more water.
  • If you choose to opt out of food and drink such as caffeine and sugar during the detox, try to gradually reduce your intake of these items in the days leading up to your 5-day meal plan. This will help reduce withdrawal symptoms such as headaches.
  • If you do experience headaches, drinking more water and resting may help alleviate your discomfort.
  • Are you feeling hunger pangs, even after eating all your allotted food for the day? Here are a few things to try:
    • Drink more water.
    • Add a healthy snack between morning and lunch.
    • Increase the portion of veggies in one of your meals.
  • Consult your doctor or nutritionist with questions or concerns.

Post Detox Plan

When you’ve completed the 5-day meal plan, take some time to reflect. What changes are you experiencing? Does your body feel different? Is there anything that you’re craving less? Is there anything that you’re craving more?

The last time I practiced a short-term gentle detox diet, by the end of the third day, I felt lighter and leaner in my body. I had fewer cravings for sugar or snacks between meals, and I had more cravings for water and fresh veggies. These are all positive changes from my perspective. I hope you’ll experience positive changes as well!

As you transition back to a “regular” routine, think about any changes you want to incorporate from your gentle detox. For example, you might decide to cut down on processed foods or refined sugar on a long-term basis. Changes like these can help you achieve your health goals and feel better physically and mentally.

I hope you enjoy the process and benefits of this experience. Please share your experience in the comments below. I’d love to hear how you like the 5-Day Detox Meal Plan!

5-Day Detox Diet Plan: Why Juicing Won’t Work, And What To Do Instead

A 5-day detox always seems like a good idea when summer’s around the corner, and you need to look amazing in a bikini. Or when there’s a wedding coming up and the last thing you need is the backhanded compliments about how chubby you are from that nosy aunt you haven’t seen in a while.

But before you jump on a trendy juicing diet that promises to detoxify your body and burn fat, there’s something you need to know. You can’t detox your own body, as it does that on its own. Plus, that juice fast won’t have long-lasting results. 

The good news is you can think of the detox as a sane way to revamp your eating habits and get started on healthy foods that’ll move your scale in the right direction. Read on to find out how. 

What Is A Detox?

A detox is the removal of harmful substances from the body. These are usually found in foods or environmental pollutants and are considered harmful because they can cause problems for your health

The idea behind a diet detox is to remove these toxins from your body through methods such as drinking lots of water, juice, or fasting. Many times people refer to this kind of diet as a “cleanse” But in reality, the only thing that drinking a lot of liquids will do is make you go to the toilet more than you should. 

The idea behind a detox or cleanse is that it will help you get rid of toxins and lose weight. But this isn’t true for several reasons. The most important thing is when you lose weight through dieting, you’re just losing water and/or lean muscle tissue. The actual fat loss rate is very minimal . So, even if toxins were stored in the fat cells, going on a cleanse wouldn’t result in detoxification.

When you don’t eat very many calories, which usually happens because it’s part of the diet plan, your body perceives this to be a form of starvation. It then signals your body to slow down and start holding onto its nutrients and energy reserves. This is why people who do these kinds of diets can often feel tired and sluggish. Your body is slowing down because it’s trying to act like you’re in a famine

Strict restrictions can make cravings stronger, and you’re more likely to overeat. 5 days of an extreme calorie deficit will not have permanent results, especially when you go back to eating regular meals. Furthermore, crash diets can trigger an unhealthy relationship with food and result in disordered eating

So, what should you do if you want to kickstart your weight loss plan? The answer is simple – forget about detox diets that promise fast results in five days or less. Instead of aiming for rapid fat loss through starvation, which means losing water and lean muscle tissue, aim for slow but steady fat loss.

How To Detox Without Going On A Juice Fast?

Instead of a liquid crash diet, think of a detox as a meal reset program. It means getting rid of all the junk you’ve been eating that’s been causing bloat, sluggishness, and putting your health at risk, and eating delicious, wholesome meals that will leave you more energized

The foods you’ll stay away from thanks to this 5-day detox cleanse diet plan include:

  • Refined sugar
  • Gluten
  • Saturated fats
  • Trans fats
  • Processed foods
  • Starchy carbs (bread, rice)
  • Soda/Coffee/Plain water (avoid these fluids if possible for the best results in appetite suppression!)

Instead, you’ll be eating:

  • Glycine-Rich Lean Protein Sources (To Your Heart’s Content!)

Meat, chicken, and eggs are proteins rich in glycine. Fish like tuna and salmon is another source of this amino acid. Protein helps reduce sugar cravings, which often come from carb withdrawal, keeps your blood sugar stable, provides satiety after meals so that you’re not tempted to snack, and helps boost immunity throughout the detox period

  • Fatty Acids Found In Olive Oil Or Vegetable Oil

Shaking up your diet from heavy meats and proteins makes room for a more balanced intake of fats which are major components of cell membranes and are necessary for proper hormone production . This means picking unsaturated fats like canola and vegetable oil, also known as heart-healthy fats. Frying with quality oils will allow you to add flavor back into your food without all the unwanted side effects.

  • Raw Veggies

Veggies provide that much-needed crunch factor in our lives! In addition to being delicious “fast food”, they also release energy slowly and stay with you longer than most foods, meaning your body doesn’t have to work hard to digest them.

  • Ginseng And Green Tea 

These two super foods play a role in regulating liver functions and in the treatment of some liver disorders. . A cup of ginseng tea or a shot of ginseng extract is also said to help curb sugar cravings!

  • Gluten-Free Whole Grains (In Moderation) 

Brown rice, quinoa, millet are all gluten-free carbohydrates that will keep your appetite at bay while you’re following this meal plan.

Sample Of 5-Day Detox Diet Meal Plan

Here’s a sample detox diet weight loss 5-day plan. You can easily arrange your daily menu by switching out specific recipes to fit your tastes, diet restrictions, food availability, etc. For instance, you can always substitute grilled tuna with any other type of fish (or a protein-rich chicken breast if you’re not fond of fish). Remember meal planning is crucial as it ensures variety and better diet quality
