Ok, so I post that I am doing a 3 day cleanse and everybody emails me, text me, or gives their 2 cents on social media. When I said the word “cleanse” everybody went into a frenzy! LOL! Thank you  caring, I do appreciate the love, but am not going on a strict crazy cleanse or a fad diet. I am simply trying to detox inflammation from my body form cheat meals, bad daily vices (like coffee), and other things.

I make a living at a healthy lifestyle. That is what I do day in and day out. But even as a fitness professional we do have our weaknesses and enjoy the occasional treat or two. Normally I live the 80% clean eating and 20% enjoy life’s pleasure like wine or chocolate. If I have a big event or photo shoot come up, I really put in 100% and eliminate everything. Usually before a photo shoot, I eat clean, workout, get massages, and use products that help aid in eliminate inflammation so I can look my best.

So here is my 3 day whole food cleanse with my products and supplements that I use. You can alter it to fit your lifestyle/needs.

Here are a few of the rules when doing a detox or a cleanse:

1. No caffeine in any form

2. No nuts, soy, dairy, whey, meat, breads (even gluten-free bread is out)

3. Go to 100% organic as possible if you can

4. No alcohol

5. And of course no processed foods of any kind

*First I want to state that I try to go 100% organic for all 3 days. I want to get rid of the toxins so I will eat fruit and veggies that are 100 organic and cleanse them well with veggie wash.

Upon rising: 2-3 glasses of water with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon of 100% organic maple syrup (optional) OR 2-3 glasses of water with a squeeze of lemon, a tablespoon apple cider vinegar, with 100% organic maple syrup (optional). You want to make sure you hydrate your body as soon as you get up. You body is dehydrated from the 7-8 hours of sleep. You can make your own concoction or buy it. I usually make my own but ran across this at Whole Foods.

Here is the 3 day menu. I do this same format 3 days in a row.

Meal 1: Berry Cherry Smoothie

2 cups fresh berries

1 handful of spinach

1 cup of frozen cherries (helps with inflammation)

1 banana

1 scoop of protein power (I use Sun Warrior Vanilla Warrior blend)

1 1/2 cups water (I use Essentia water)

Blend all ingredients well and drink immediately

 

Meal 2: Some more fruit and healthy fats

1 apple

1 small avocado or 1/2 large avocado

 

Meal 3: 1 large salad

I put a ton of different veggies in it with 3/4  cup of beans and I use 2 tablespoon olive oil with the juice of 1lemon for dressing

 

Meal 4: 2-3 cups of fresh veggies with 1/4 cup of hummus or a white bean dip

 

Meal 5: A large green juice. I usually do my skinny greens and I take spirulina pills for protein

 

I drink tons of water in between the meals to help flush toxins and inflammation out of my system.

 

Exercise: Since I will be eating lighter. I will do more hot yoga, Zumba, and Cardio Barre type classes. I want to sweat to help get rid of toxins.

 

Massage: I also throw in a massage on the 3rd day.

 

Then another thing I like to do the night before my shoot is do an at-home body wrap. The Ultimate Body Applicator is great way to do that last minute tightening wherever you apply it (arms, legs, abs, chin, ect…). I applied it on my abs. You can get them here if interested. www.sixpackwraps.com

Anyways, that is it. Simple. Enjoy!
