The first three days of The Plan detox contains well over 7,000 calories for women and over 9,000 calories for men, and average weight loss is 5-8 lbs. How is that possible? You’ll quickly learn on The Plan that the calorie myth means nothing – all that matters is how easily your body can digest foods. The “cleaner” your foods are, the more food you can eat and the better you feel.
The steps to the three-day detox are very easy:
- First thing in the morning, drink 16 ounces of water with lemon.
- Have dandelion tea with breakfast. The tea and the lemon are wonderful natural liver cleansers and will aid metabolism and hormonal health.
- Take a probiotic each morning to restore digestive health.
It’s very important that you don’t deviate from the detox; the days are structured to have adequate nutrients, protein, fat and fiber to keep you full. In fact, the first day for women on The Plan has you consuming 70-plus grams of vegetarian protein and over 100% of your macronutrients and minerals.
The Plan allows the least reactive foods during the first three days. These foods are easily digestible and your body gets a respite from breaking down inflammatory foods. Energy is diverted from difficult digestion to repair. Systems that were first affected by reactive foods show immediate improvement – stress levels hormones, skin, and digestion all rapidly improve.
