    1. Tha'lia, The detox plan is a good jumpstart to a clean eating diet, so I would say look at some of the menu plans and recipes around the site. You should continue to drink a lot of water.

  1. I am 68 years old and want to do the three day detox. What I want to know is the right type of exercises I should be doing to help reduce my weight. I am 151 lbs and 5 ft tall. I have a pace maker and defibulator. I am not afraid to exercise at all but want to know what is best for the fat belly area. My legs are fine thank goodness but my arns are starting to get bigger. I want to lose about 35 lbs. I am determinded to do this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    1. Sera, That is great. You should print some workouts from the site and pass them by your doctor for approval first. Also a physical therapist can make modifications to any work out based on specific health needs, and a doctor can write a referral for one.

  2. For the snack, are you supposed to choose one or is it carrot, and cucumber, and celery and one of the nut options? My husband and I are gearing up to start the detox tomorrow!

    1. Cait, That's great! Eat all of the vegetables listed and choose one of the nut types or one of the seeds.

  3. This is great! but I can’t each raw celery without blending it, can I replace with garden eggs, that’s very common in my area. thanks

    1. A single egg is a healthy snack choice, but a better substitution for this particular snack would be zucchini slices or broccoli florets.

  4. iam on a new adventure on losing weight starting but cutting out on the bad carbs, i do love oatmeal but iam no sure how to eat it and not affect weight . also i would like to know if i can eat rice and in what amount. can i have green shakes in the morning with boiled eggs for Bfast / or oatmeal plate with fruit, have a soup and salad for lunch have two snaks a day and finish dinner out with big green salad and chicken.

    1. Krystina, Oatmeal and brown rice are both nutritional powerhouses. By following a clean eating plan and cutting back on portions, healthy weight loss should be less of a challenge. As far as how much rice? A half cup of cooked brown rice, along with a lean protein and helthy fat, should be fine. Green smoothies made with healthy ingredients are also a good choice. 🙂

  5. How many calories are in this snack? I have been having it twice a day.. Should I be eating 16 almonds and 16 walnuts a day? It easy for me because I can pick at it, I am in a classroom all day.

    1. There are about 105 calories in this snack. If you choose to eat this twice per day (once in the morning, and once in the evening), then yes, you would be eating 16 walnuts or almonds per day.

  6. As a alternative to the hard crunch of the carrot, I pureed the carrot with the almonds and added a garlic clove, cilantro, turmeric and a drizzle of olive oil. This was a great “dip” for my celery and cucumber..! I doubled the amounts and will use this as my afternoon snack for today. Hope it meets the “detox” requirements!

    1. Valerie, Definitely! You can eat your favorite nuts, just make sure they’re raw or roasted without added oils or salt.

  7. I was wondering if it would be ok to dip the vegetables in salad dressing? It’s a little bland for my taste, and this is completely new to me.

  8. Hi I’m starting the 3 day detox today and pumped! Why do you choose coconut milk for the smoothie and not soy, almond milk etc? Thx!

  9. Hi, I really like your detox. Can I use pears instead of Apple? Do u have to do this for 3days ? How much weight will I lose.
