Prepping for NYE With a Little Detox

After spending an hour next to my friend Teresa in a hot yoga class, staring at her rock solid abs, I decided I want to do whatever she is doing, and fast.  She was telling me about this 3 day detox of sorts that she just whipped up and followed earlier in the week.  She's at the lowest weight she's been all year.  Umm, hello!  Sign me up!  New Year's Eve is this upcoming Tuesday and I am not feeling ready to put on a dress, but I have a feeling after this 3 day (easy peasy) detox I will be ready to rock out.  I don't have a juicer, so I plan on buying Suja juices for the fresh, raw juice portion. 
Check out this fabulous guest post from Teresa and join me in this detox if you're feeling lethargic and bloated after the holiday.

3 Day New Year's Eve Detox

By Teresa Marie Howes

I am not really a fan of simple juice cleanses because I get way too hungry and I have a hard time working out or I get way too space cadet-y, which makes it hard to work. So I decided to do a little twist on the traditional juicing detox. In addition to fresh juice, I decided to add smoothies for protein and roasted vegetable soups for fiber and satiation. And of course, liters and liters of water and some dieters tea to move everything through. I did one day and felt great. I wasn't hungry at all. And I so appreciated the simplicity of not having to think about or prepare food. Not to mention, less dishes to wash.

My 3 Day Detox Results

When I woke up the next day several pounds lighter -- I figured I'd go another day. Why not? I was feeling great! So after 3 days, I lost 7 lbs. All of my holiday retox was  gone. Yesterday I had a holiday party so normal food went down (along with a lot of Chardonnay) and today I still saw the smallest number I've seen on the scale all year! Woot! Because this blog is an extension of my lifestyle, I felt compelled to share my recipe for my 3 Day Detox!
And with New Year's Eve just four days away, this gives you enough time to slim down and fit comfortably into your sequins!

3 Day Detox Instructions

I created this schedule for structure, but I wouldn't get too tied up in following it to the minute. Every day was a little different depending on my schedule, when I was working out and how hungry I felt. If you choose to follow this plan (or a variation of) this is a good guide to give you an idea of how the day broke down. The idea was that I always had 2-3 fresh juices, 2-3 protein smoothies, 1 vegetable soup , 4 liters of water and 1 detox tea per day. I believe it netted out to about 900-1200 calories per day, 30-40g of fiber and 70-90g of protein. Potentially a little bit on skinny side of the diet scale for me, but for a 3 day detox, pretty nutritionally sufficient.

But here are a few recipes just to get you started for now.

Basic Fresh Detox Juice
  • 1/2 Beet
  • 1/2 Green Apple
  • 2 cups Raw Spinach
  • 3 stalks of Celery
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 1" fresh Ginger
  • 1/4 Lemon
Directions: Squeeze the lemon juice in the bottom of the glass. Put everything else in the juicer. Poor your detox juice on top of your lemon juice and enjoy right away. If you let it sit to long, you'll lose a lot of the enzyme goodness.
You'll want several recipes for fresh juices and you can find some more great ones here: Fresh Detox Juice Recipes
Vanilla Berry Protein Smoothie
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 5 frozen Strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 T ground Fax Seeds
  • 6-8oz Water
Directions: put everything in the blender and start at your lowest level until all the chunks are ground up. Then slowly increase the speed and let it run for at least 30 seconds to froth it up and make it more fluffy and delicious.
Here is another great recipe if you're using chocolate protein powder: Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

Pureed Vegetable Soup
  • 1 Medium Cauliflower
  • 3 cups Water
  • 3 cups Spinach
  • 3 T ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 T Lemon Juice
  • 2 T Spicy Mustard
  • 1 T Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Directions: Core the cauliflower, chop florets into large chunks and save stems for juicing. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add cauliflower and let boil for 30 minutes. Add the boiled cauliflower to a blender or food processor with 2 cups of the water it boiled in (preserves some nutrition value) and blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and serve.
This soup is a nutrition super star with 26g of fiber and under 300 calories for the ENTIRE pot. It also has 500% of your vitamin C, 170% Vitamin A, 36% Iron and 29% daily calcium requirements. Woot! If you're looking for variety, you should also try this Skinny Butternut Squash Soup recipe.

3 Day Detox Disclaimers

I should have this as a disclaimer for my entire blog. I am not a medical doctor or miracle maker. However,  I do have a formal education in nutrition, and 15  years of experience in the weight loss industry (both side of the scale). I have personally tried and witnessed a lot of "diet" experiments and only share the ones I feel are nutritional sound and effective. With all of that said, I cannot guarantee that everybody will have the experience, so you should be smart when trying on any new dietary habit. You are responsible for your own health. Any recipe or nutrition instruction I provide, should be taken only as recommendation, not prescription.
So there you have my quick summary and potentially a great way to slim down for New Years Eve! If you try this or a version of it, do let me know how it goes! Or if you have a different way to clean out the toxic effects of the holidays -- please share!
