Dr. Oz 3-day Detox Recipe

Dr. Oz's 3-day Detox Cleanse

This detox is shorter than most, so it is much easier to fit into your schedule. Plus, the smoothies can be made ahead of time and keep well in the fridge in case you are on the go. 

For my personal experience with the detox, you can go HERE.

  • 3 cups Raspberries

Dinner:

Blend:
  • 1/2 cup Mango
  • 1 cup Blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cup Coconut Water
  • 1 cup Kale Leaves
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon juice
  • 1/4 Avocado
  • 1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Flaxseed
At the end of the day, take a detox bath. 2 1/2 cups of Epsom salt and 10 drops of Lavender oil. 


Make sure to drink LOTS of water! If you get hungry it will help fill you up and it will help flush the toxins. You also want to get some exercise each day, but not anything too strenuous. I just did some exercises in my living room, I didn't run any of these days. And be prepared to PEE. I was using the bathroom at least every hour.

If you don't have a bathtub like myself, you can take a shower. Turn the water on hot and make it steamy. Then you can rub the salt and oil on your skin. I bought a lavender scented salt and thought it worked fine. Just let it sit on your skin and stand in the shower while it is steaming, like a sauna. I stayed in for about 15 minutes. 

This isn't really about losing weight, and more about flushing your system, but I did lose 3.5 lbs. It's worth it if you stick to it, if nothing else you get the satisfaction of knowing you did it!

Good luck!

  1. I want to make an amendment to this post. I finished the detox on a Thursday, and Friday and Saturday I stayed on track. I ate lots of protein, LOW sugar, did more exercising. On the days that I had been doing the detox I had been doing some ab and arm exercises. By Sunday, I had dropped another 2 pounds for a total of 5.5 lbs that week AND I saw major toning in my upper arms, plus my waist looked like it shrank a little.

    The moral of the story here is, keep it up! Even if you don't see results right away, it is working! Just keep on track after you finish the detox and you will see results soon.

    One more tip: Don't forget that your body didn't have solid food for three days...take it easy eating food again. Even on Sunday, I gave in and had a muffin for breakfast and it upset my stomach for a while...which I guess is a good thing! :)
