    I don't have a juicer so do the smoothies count as juicing? Also on the coconut milk smoothie it says a serving size is 1/2 the recipe so can you just save the other half for the next day or is it better to make half a recipe?

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  December 30, 2012

      Emily, Smoothies are even better because all the nutrients remain. Smoothies tend to be a lot thicker than juice, so either add more liquid or make half the recipe.

    Not sure I understand… you list Breakfast recipes as Mean Green Juice, super detox,cleanse & detox and coconut milk.
    BUT then you say breakfast to choose from Mean green juice 1, mean green 2, mean green 3 and 4…
    So what list do we really do??? Because for the Mean green juice 1,2,3,4 the ingredients are not on the shopping list??
    And when you say have two juices a day that means one of something from above for breakfast and you would rather us have another one from above for the mid-afternoon and not the other choices on the list??
    Thanks

    Hi there, love the way this cleanse sounds! I do not have a juicer, I did try the mean green #1 drink in the blender, but found it very bitter, I think because of the kale. Do you have any modifications besides cutting the recipe in half for the blender? Is there a smoothie type recipe for a mean green drink (that doesn't include lots of fruit) and won't be as "chewy"? Thank you so much for all of your great knowledge and helpful information you provide at our fingertips;)

    My husband and I just completed this cleanse. I have always been skeptical of them and didn't know what would come out of it.
    During the cleanse we had our ups and downs of course, major cravings for meat, sweets and bread throughout the 3 days. When we finished we were so excited to eat 'normal' meal but afterwards we just felt really greasy and heavy.
    Now we don't crave meat, sweets, pasta any of that! I was wondering if this is normal after a cleanse and if anyone else felt like this!

    On day 3 and some questions and comments.

    Was looking for a cleanse, have done 2 week and 1 week cleanses in the past with supplements and dietary changes, but this looked to be quite easy to manage and I was thrilled to find it.

    The shopping list and recipes are extremely well laid out, thanks so much. I had items on hand for the first morning drink and smoothies, then I shopped and prepped for the rest of the 3 days. That took about an hour and a half but it has been worth it.

    Impressions first day: holy cow this is a lot of food! I was completely full. I am 5'6"and 160 lbs. The Garden Salad took me three separate eatings on day 1 to finish. I did add the chicken, feeling that I needed protein as I play soccer. I later read in the blog that someone said it was a three-portion recipe, but checked the recipe and it does say 1 serving. So Day 2 I reduced the amounts. BTW it is delicious and something I would eat any day!

    Using a blender for the smoothies and having limited texture results, but enjoying the taste.

    The soup is DISGUSTING. I love all the veggies, just find that the soup has no flavour, the 30 min cooking time makes the veggies too soggy, and I usually cook my kale for 5 mins so 2-3 makes it quite chewy. Also think it has a lot of pepper in it. Eating the soup as required but will be glad when that part is over.

    Made the zucchini and bean salad over quinoa which tastes fine, but finding I'm too full in the afternoons so using the juice/smoothies instead. I can eat my leftover salad after the three days is up.

    Wondering why the are pepper and oregano in everything – are there certain cleansing properties to these? Thank goodness for the sea salt – especially on the soup!

    I just started the 3 day detox today. I started with the lemon/ginger drink when I woke up. For breakfast I made the "Super Detox Smoothie" which made about 3-4 servings I was unable to finish my first glass and dumped it out. So I skipped the smoothie and went right into the veggies and nuts. What should i do now for lunch? And am I supposed to juice for breakfast? ~thanks!

    Hi, I am starting the 3 day detox tomorrow. Went out and bought most of the ingredients today, to say the least I must have had to go to at least 4 different places to get everything, but that's not unusual where I live. Having said that I cannot get lemons anywhere is there something other than lemons I can use in the morning drink and the other recipes?

      Drink just lemon water, without the ginger. Remove the ginger from any of the smoothies or recipes. If desired, in it's place you can put a very small pinch of cayenne pepper or simply omit altogether.

    I wrote another post in the ingredients list that I don't see, but anyway. I'm on the third day of this detox and this is my feedback, if welcomed.

    The food is delicious, as well as the smoothies I had no complaints. I did this with my family so there was a lot of clean up after, that was the nuisance but it's only three days so I just pushed through it. A few items were missing from the ingredients list for the smoothies and the soup. I had more liquid release than solid. (sorry) I haven't lost any weight or any inches but everyone is telling me that my skin is glowing so I am still happy with the results. Honestly at day 3 I am ready for "real solid food" which I will be getting from your website as well, which I'm sure will be delicious.

    The only frustration that I had was with the ingredients. Often times I would have to substitute if I ran out of something or didn't see it on the ingredients list. Other than that I recommend it for anyone who is willing to try something new. Definitely not a waste of time.

    What foods do you recommend eating the first couple of days after the detox. I'm on day 4 today, but want to start back with healthy/normal eating tomorrow. Are there certain foods to avoid? Are all fruits and vegetables game at this point? How about animal protein? Whole grains and/or whole wheat bread? Dairy? I feel like this has been a very accessible detox and will probably try it twice a year, as you've recommended. Thank you!

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  May 3, 2014

      You're welcome! If you can avoid sugar and alcohol to keep the effects of the detox going that would be ideal. Some people benefit from not eating much meat or dairy for a week after the detox. It's up to you, but avoiding refined sugars and white flours is certainly recommended everyday. Eating chicken and fish is easier for your body to digest then heavier red meats.

    I am just finishing up day 3 of the Cleanse and Detox. I have some comments/questions.

    I have a ton of food left over. I wanted to try most things so I bought everything but when I do it again I would go through the list and make sure I am only buying what I need.

    I tried a few of the smoothies … cannot drink the The Cleanse and Detox Smoothie or the Super Green Detox Drink. I could not get them down no matter how hard I tired. Is there a trick to making them smoother? There were little chucks which made it so hard to drink. I did, however, enjoy the Coconut Milk Smoothie. I can see myself having that one often.

    The morning Sunrise Lemon Ginger Detox Drink was good expect for the little chucks of ginger. I tried to get most of them down but again it was hard.

    The soup was ok. I took out half the soup and blended it and put it back in. I’m thinking next time I will blend the beans only before adding them and see how that goes. I seem to enjoy thicker soups.

    I have also realized that I am probably not doing the correct portions for some items (I think I drank a whole recipe of the Coconut Milk Smoothie and then realized I should have halved it). I’m wondering if it would be possible to put a note by each item in the list saying to half or quarter the recipe if you are doing this for the Cleanse and Detox?

    Overall I liked this Cleanse and Detox. I am wondering how often I can do this. I figure this was my first go around and I probably messed up more then I should have so I was thinking of doing it again next month. I want to lose more weight than most people so I would like to do this often to keep me on track.

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  July 21, 2014

      Jeanette, A high powered blender such as the Vitamix or even the nutribullet could make the smoothies smoother. You could puree the entire soup and have it as a pureed soup and still get the benefits. Good idea about the notes. You can do the 3- Day Cleanse and Detox once a month.

There should be enough there to have for all 3 days. The Cleanse and Detox Smoothie is one serving. You can look at the nutrition information on the others when you click through to see if they are one or two servings. If two, the remainder can be frozen in ice cube trays and pureed in the blender the following day.

What is the reason for limiting protein intake? I thought we needed protein for energy, fat burning, blood sugar stabilization, etc. Do you ever add protein powder to your smoothies? I'm trying to learn more about nutrition and healthy eating so any comments are appreciated. Thanks so much for all of your hard work on this site – I think it's great!

      Hi Christine, There are black beans included in the detox, which are full of good protein. Yes, we do sometimes add a clean protein powder to smoothies.
      The only one I would recommend is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S9IJFRE?ie=UT

      You are so welcome. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. 🙂

    Hi love the 3 day detox, feel great and lost weight, can I do the diet again the following week or
    is it best to wait a while.

      Hi Sandra, This detox includes whole foods, not just liquids, so it should be fine to do within a week or two. Three days of eating healthy, clean foods should be fine. If you have
      any real concerns please check with your doctor. 🙂

    I would like to think you for your website and all your help so far! I have done the cleanse here almost to a T..with one minor failure due to a work party in which I really limited myself from eating most of the bad foods. I lost 6 pounds, I want to continue to work out and eat right. Your plans on this site are keeping me on track. I am learning about some interesting ingredients as well! I am getting married in one year so I definitely more motivated now!! THANK YOU!!

    I did this cleanse for 5 days and it was amazing! I included apple cider vinegar in the mornings but other than that I followed it to a T. I now have continued on the same meal plan with a few changes. Mid morning is a protein shake, adding lean protein to lunch salad And adding lean protein with dinner. I’ve been doing this for 6 months and I’ve lost 24kg (around 50 pounds) Thank you for the kickstart I needed!!

    I did this for the three days – it was great. I really feel like my belly went down. First time in a while that something worked. Question – what do you do for the 4th day and rest of the time? Is there another regular diet to follow, I saw the recipes, but didn’t see a plan to follow such as the 3 day detox, which is so helpful! Any help would be great.

    I would like to do the 3 day cleanse however I don’t like smoothies or juicing. Is there a substitute.? I read through the comments to see if this question was already asked but didn’t see anything. Thank you!

    I would love to do this cleanse, but I do not need to lose much weight. I mainly want to just clean out my system to make it healthier and stop sugar cravings. Is this still a good cleanse to do?

      Tiffany, Yes, it’s a cleanse in addition to being a detox.

      For cooking, I would use diced bell pepper and for eating raw, cucumber.

        Thank you. I made the old-fashioned vegetable soup and I really enjoyed every bit of it. Btw today’s my last day(3rd day) and I’m really proud of myself. I can’t wait to finally say ‘I made it’ later before Going to bed or perhaps tomorrow morning. Lol

    Hi getting everything together today to start the cleanse tomorrow, can’t see where the quinoa is used. It’s on the shopping list though?

    Hello SkinnyMs starting today. What diet plan do you recommend after the cleanse?

    Reply
  129. Cathy  April 12, 2016

    Looking at the total calories for this detox, not including snacks is only 631 cals for the day!
    I am to stick to no lower than 1200 Cal per day. Can I increase some of the recipes to ensure my calorie goal is achieved?

    Reply
    • Gale Compton  April 12, 2016

      Cathy, There are options for the 3-day cleanse, this way you can decide what works best for you. Definitely eat enough food to equal 1200 calories per day.

    Is it okay to have a banana or a sweet potatoe as a snack?

    I’ve had some extra almonds as a snack – also realized now that the salad recipe was 2 servings – no wonder I was so full!!! Looking for detox benefits rather than weight loss…. Will I be ok even with my mistakes??? Also, what about some trader joes hummus with my veggie snack?

    • Gale Compton  April 25, 2016

      Amanda, You should be fine since you’re eating healthy. As far as hummus, it really depends on the ingredients. Just make sure they’re all clean. 🙂

    Hello, So I was reading over the 3Day cleanse and was wondering if i can do this cleanse once a week?And i just follow the instructions as is right like just repeat the steps

    Reply
    • Gale Compton  April 30, 2016

      Elizabeth, It’s a very healthy cleanse which include whole foods. I would recommend giving a call to your doctor to make sure 3 days a week is O.K. for you, as everyone’s healthy needs are different. 🙂
