You are NOT Beyonce: The Truth About Cleanse Diets

As the summer winds down, you may be thinking of ways to cleanse yourself of all the vacation food, happy hours and spontaneous ice cream runs that you enjoyed this season. As a trainer, I am always asked about the merits of cleanse diets and detoxes for weight loss and health.

The BluePrint cleanse is hot right now, with it’s options of what type of detox you want.

Hmmm, do I want to Renovate or Excavate? Decisions, decisions.  

After 3 days of this, your wallet will weigh about $200 less

Unbelievably, the Master Cleanse is still out there, despite the fact that it’s just lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Beyonce famously did this one to get in shape for Dream Girls.

Here’s the deal: a liquid diet will only slow your metabolism, and make you lose muscle and water. So yes, the pounds on the scale will drop, but not because of any great fat loss. Your liver (the organ responsible for really detoxing your body) actually needs protein to do its job. So a week of only drinking juices will only make your body MORE TOXIC as the liver will not be able to do its job properly. Finally ask yourself, have you ever met anyone, EVER, who has kept off the weight they lost during a cleanse? In fact, most people within a few months of being off the cleanse gain back more fat than they had before the cleanse.

I get it, you need structure, a plan, a “jump start” to your healthy new lifestyle. I think that cleanses do help people psychologically get amped up to get healthy. But instead of the cleanse, make your own 10 day detox plan: stay out of the bars and restaurants. Cook your own meals that consist of good protein, veggies, and whole grains. Eat a little bit of fruit and drink a ton of water with lemon. Stay away from processed stuff. After the 10 days, assess how you feel and ask yourself if you can go another 10. Unless you are Beyonce and need to be a size 0 in 3 days, there is no reason to starve yourself.
