5 Best Cleanse and Detox Diets You Can Buy Online
Pick out your favorite detox diet
Fall is the perfect season to renew your body before holiday season arrives. Give yourself a fast cleanse to nix a few pounds, flush out toxins and give your digestive system a break before being tempted by all of the rich foods of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
A detox diet is lower in calories, cuts out refined sugars, packaged foods, sodium, alcohol and anything cooked, and encourages lots of fruits, vegetables, water and herbal tea. To make it easy on yourself, there are pre-packaged options that give you all of the benefits of a cleanse without any of the work. Because chopping veggies and juicing greens can take a lot of time, not to mention the expensive equipment needed to product optimal smoothies and juices.
Here are our top five pre-packaged detox and cleanse diets. Read about them and pick out your favorite and place your order.
This is a popular pre-packaged cleanse that’s available at Whole Foods or through online purchase. The plan offers three versions:
Renovation Cleanse – For absolute beginners who’ve never cleansed before. It fills you up with six juices per day — a combination of creamy cashew nut milk with vanilla and cinnamon, combination fruit juices like pineapple and mint, lemonades with agave nectar and nourishing green juices, but nothing too grassy for newbies.
Foundation Cleanse – This middle-of-the-road option triggers your body to cleanse and gently detox, and lose some serious baggage in the process. After you've laid the foundation with this more intense cleanse, you can move up to the next level.
Excavation Cleanse – This deep cleanse offers the most intensity and is designed to flood your body with chlorophyll, restore your alkaline balance, and seriously rest your insides. It takes you much deeper; it digs down to a cellular level, and leaves you feeling renewed. Excavation provides the cleanest way of juicing, as it omits certain foods that would otherwise slow the detoxification process. For example, there is little fruit and aside from cayenne, no herbs/spices (i.e. garlic, onion) are used. Certain foods that are used in previous cleanses, such as carrot/apple/beet juice and other fruits with a higher glycemic index, such as pineapple, have been eliminated. Excavation focuses on juices that trigger detox and elimination, such as citrus (spicy lemonade), which act as “cleaners” and green vegetable tonics which act as “healers” and, ahem, “sweepers.”
The cleanses are $65 a day, not including shipping and handling. Although if you live in New York City or Los Angeles, delivery is free.
This cleanse program offers three versions: 1, 2 and 3. Each one is progressively more strict, with fewer calories and more green juice as you move to the next version. You can choose one, three or five-day cleanses. The total for each 5-day cleanse is $325. If you choose to just try it for one day, the cost is only $72.
This US company offers a variety of detox teas:
EveryDay Detox - Based on a combination of herbs inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine, our herbalists blended dandelion and chicory roots—bitter and earthy and used to stimulate your liver’s natural detoxification processes—with schisandra berries, whose use was first documented 5,000 years ago. Called “five flavor berry” in Chinese, schisandra is unique in that it has all five tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and (warmly) spicy.
EveryDay Detox Lemon - Gently supporting your body’s natural detoxification process, like the standard EveryDay Detox, our herbalists created this lemon tea to help beautify skin, as well as easing digestion and promoting flushing of the kidneys.
Roasted Dandelion Root - This tea gently stimulates the liver and supports healthy digestion with mildly bitter, roasted dandelion root that helps your body break down fats and carry away waste.
Urban Remedy is a line of raw, ready-to-eat snacks, meals, cold-pressed juices and energy boosting tinctures that blend cutting-edge nutrition with Traditional Chinese Medicine for deeply healing elixirs. They’re lower sugar than other cold-pressed juices, and provide options for adding raw, organic foods to a juice cleanse.
There are three options, the low glycemic cleanse, the purify cleanse and the super green cleanse. Each one is $74.99 a day with free shipping, and can be purchased in increments from one to 20 days, depending on preference.
Kaeng Raeng is a nutritional meal replacement cleanse program that delivers results without sacrificing taste, convenience, quality, or your sanity. Vegan, gluten free, soy free, caffeine free, nut free, non-gmo, all natural, and only locally sourced ingredients.
Choose your timeline - either 3 or 6 day. The 6-Day program is ideal for those trying to lose weight. You'll receive 3 packets per day of the detox program you choose.
The cost is less than other programs, only $10 for a sample packet if you want to try it before buying a full cleanse, or $79.99 for a three-day cleanse.
