Fruit Detox Diet Plan
A safe and sensible detox plan by Weight Loss Resource's Dietitian, Juliette Kellow.
By Dietitian, Juliette Kellow BSc RD
Rather than following an extreme detox plan that limits just about every food except fruit and veg while at the same time getting you to down a nasty ‘detox’ drink every day, this plan is safer and more sensible and shouldn’t leave you short on nutrients if you follow it for just one week.
Foods to include in the plan
Your plan can include:
- Fruit – your plan can include any fruit including fresh, frozen, dried or canned in natural fruit juice. This includes apples, bananas, pears, oranges, grapefruit, satsumas, sultanas, raisins, pineapple, mango, kiwi fruit, strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, nectarines, peaches, melons, star fruit etc
- Fruit juice – either make homemade fruit juices or smoothies from fresh fruit, or drink ready-made juices. Make sure ready-made juices are labelled as being ‘pure’ or ‘unsweetened’.
- Vegetables – eat any vegetables including fresh, frozen or canned in water (without salt added). This includes carrots, onions, turnip, swede, sprouts, cabbage, peppers, mushrooms, sweetcorn, peppers, leeks, courgettes, broccoli, cauliflower, salad, tomatoes, cucumber, spring onions etc
- Beans and lentils – eat any beans, including those that have been dried or canned in water. This includes red kidney, haricot, cannellini, butter, black eye, pinto, red lentils, green lentils and brown lentils
- Tofu and Quorn
- Oats – sprinkle oats over fresh fruit or use to make porridge, sweetened with honey and fresh fruit

Need detox support!2011-03-12 17:20:11 by madkitty
I'm doing a light detox for three weeks. I've cut out sugar, dairy, wheat and processed foods. I'm eating cooked and raw veggies, fruit, steamed fish and chicken, nuts, brown rice and quinoa. I've switched from 3 cups of coffee daily to 3-4 cups of green tea. My goal is to make these foods the bulk of my diet; I plan to add small amounts of dairy, wheat, and sugar back in after three weeks if I'm so inclined, but I want to give my body the opportunity to clear out a bit.
I'm loving the food I'm eating and was doing great until today. I'm on day 4 and I'm irritable, exhausted, a little achy, and I have nasal congestion
My NEW DIET...2004-09-26 16:47:25 by whatchyathink
Ive experminted with every diet known to man and just went on a five day raw detox...I was wondering what you guys think of this:
breakfast: three fruits
lunch: protien, greens, TONS of veggies, olive oil. maybe some rainsins and sunflower seeds sprinkled
snack: nuts or a fruit
dinner: same as lunch= protien and veggies.
I want to lose some weight, and I work out five times per week. Yet I want to stick to mostly raw foods (excepts for a bit of fish and chicken)and NO dairy. Do you think this plan will aid my weight loss or is this much fruit no good????

It sounds good for any of us and seems to answer your question
What Goes into a 7 Day Cleansing Diet
As mentioned earlier, there are different ways to approach a 7 day cleanse. Some people like to detox by drinking only fresh-squeezed fruit and/or vegetable juices and filtered water for the duration of the cleanse.
Others simply cut out processed foods and meat, or choose to eat only raw foods for a week. This sort of diet is a much more reasonable approach and likely just as effective because it still gives the body a break from the less-healthy foods you're regularly putting into it
