I am obsessed with the Dr. Oz show ;)! I saw this episode the other night and I am def. doing this!

Detox diets are all the rage in Hollywood.  Today you’ll find detox diets that promise to help you lose weight, boost your energy levels, get rid of toxins, and much more. However, many of these popular detox diets have you constrict your caloric intake to insanely dangerous levels which can rob the body of important nutrients and place the body in starvation mode, which actually slows your metabolism. Also following an unhealthy detox diet can cause dehydration, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and even colon damage.

So I was super excited when I saw this super healthy detox on the Dr. Oz show.  I am doing this cleanse this weekend-the drinks look delicioussssss!!  Read on to get the recipes.

Are you ready for the ultimate detox solution? Dr. Oz’s 48-Hour Weekend Cleanse will revitalize you from the inside out.

The Body’s Detox System
Oftentimes people don’t realize that the body has its own extraordinary internal detoxification system. Here’s a brief look at three critical organs involved:

  • The Liver: Your first line of defense against toxins is your liver, which acts like a filter in preventing toxic substances contained in foods from passing into your blood stream.
  • The Colon: This organ has bacteria that produce both healthy and unhealthy chemicals. You want to keep your colon flowing regularly since its main role is to flush out toxic chemicals before they can do you any harm.
  • The Kidneys: Like clockwork, the kidneys are constantly filtering your blood and getting rid of toxins in the form of urine.

For a detox diet to truly work, you need to maintain these three key organs by nourishing your body with the right nutrients.  Dr. Oz’s 48-Hour Weekend Cleanse is based upon eating certain “detoxifying” foods that will keep these systems running smoothly.  You’ll need to prepare and eat the following meals and snacks two days in a row. To get ready for the weekend cleanse, print out the complete cleanse shopping list and make a trip to the supermarket.
