What is the best cleanse for weight loss? My secret to a lean and healthy body can be summed up in three words: clean green drinks! Healthy meals are a big part of the plan too, but juices and smoothies are key for maximizing nutrition and effortlessly maintaining that slim and sexy body of yours.
To help you get started on this incredible way of life, I've outlined a one-week cleanse based on my upcoming third book, Clean Green Drinks, available April 22. This is not an ordinary juice cleanse—it's a healthy food and drink plan designed to help you master satiety and nutrition with just three key steps:
1. Clean Green Drinks: Replace breakfast and lunch with two to three clean green drinks for the first week. An energy-boosting juice or green tea can also be consumed during that mid-afternoon slump. Additionally, drink 10 cups of water each day. And if you need a pick-me-up snack? Opt for an apple, banana, or a handful of raw almonds. The next week is about kick-starting your health, so be disciplined!
2. Clean Green Eats: Enjoy a light dinner. See the choices in the seven-day meal plan that follows. If you feel great after this week of clean green drinks and clean eating, continue to eat this way for another week! Drop the pounds and gain more energy.
3. Exercise: Find a routine you LOVE. Remember you must work out for at least 30 minutes daily! Find an activity you enjoy and you may become addicted to this way of life. Yes, there's such thing as a "healthy addiction." Some of my favorites? Yoga, Bar Method, SoulCycle, and running.
