Liquid Diet Plan

Liquid Diet Plan




liquid-diet-planLiquid diets are known for giving easily digestible micronutrients while drastically limiting your caloric intake.

This is a pro, causing weight loss, but also a con, as it slows your metabolism greatly and is nearly worthless if you don’t continue changing your eating habits once you begin to eat solid foods again. However, if you have a few pounds to lose and you need to do it before that big date or upcoming event then a liquid diet plan might just work for you as a short-term diet.

There are many different types of liquid diets, from the Reboot juicing plan, to the Master Cleanse, to the Martha’s Vineyard Detox, and the information can be overwhelming.

Choosing the right one for you is crucial.

Here are 3 of the top liquid diet plans.

Liquid Diet Plan 1

The Reboot Juicing plan

60 days of drinking nothing but fruit and vegetable juice, limiting yourself to the less-sugary intake.

Could you do a liquid diet plan or the reboot juicing plan?

Joe Cross, famous for Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead did, juicing his way across the United States and sharing his healthy way of losing weight.

The typical Reboot is 15 to 30 days, though for long-term juicing-only diets, you should consult a doctor.

The side effects of a Reboot are dizziness, fatigue, headaches, and bad breath. Drink more to resolve most of these side effects, and don’t take non-prescription vitamins and
supplements.

For a week leading up to the reboot, reduce processed and refined foods, fast foods, caffeine, dairy, and meat. Get extra sleep and drink proper amounts of water.

During the plan, you consume only herbal teas, coconut water, water, and your juices. Reboot juices should be 80% veggie, 20% fruit.

Joe Cross provides an excellent color-coded juice library in his free 5-day plan for any beginner, suggesting that they choose specific color-oriented juices for specific meals.

Upon waking, he suggests 8 oz of hot water with lemon and ginger to get the body moving while you wake up enough to juice.

For breakfast, an orange or red coded juice.

A mid-morning ‘snack’ of 16 oz coconut water, followed by a lunch of a green coded juice.

Afternoon snack should be another orange or red juice, and dinner should be green.

Desserts are purple or orange coded juices, and an herbal tea should be imbibed before bed.

Some samples of his juice recipes are in the ‘recipes’ section at the end of the post.

You can get his book here.
The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet: Lose Weight, Get Healthy and Feel Amazing

Cautions

While a liquid diet plan works well for most of us, rebooting while pregnant or nursing is very dangerous and should not be attempted.

This diet helps the body to detox while flooding it with the micronutrients, vitamins and minerals, that it requires, giving the body time to reset.

Continuing to juice once you return to eating solid foods is highly recommended.

Liquid Diet Plan 2

The Master Cleanse

One of the most popular diets of today, the dieter mixes together 14 tbsp of lemon juice, 14 tbsp of maple syrup to use throughout the day, adding as much cayenne pepper as they can stand to the mixture when they mix it with water.

Each batch of mixture is made to mix with 2 liters of water total, and every cup should contain the mixture and the cayenne.

This is the daily ‘meal’ for this liquid diet plan.

Drink a cup of it whenever you feel hunger pangs, then follow it with some water, which you should be drinking more than an average amount of.

In the evening, you should mix 1 tbsp sea salt with a liter of warm water and drink quickly. Make sure you do this when you’re on an empty stomach.This will cause you to empty your bowels within half an hour.

If it doesn’t work, try again, doubling the salt. It’s suggested you don’t do this diet for more than 14 days.

Tom Woloshyn has written a compendium, “The Complete Master Cleanse”, which is a compilation of recipes and the purpose of the ingredients.

Beyond the Master Cleanse: The Year-Round Plan for Maximizing the Benefits of The Lemonade Diet

Many people do 14 day ‘stacks’, cleansing for 14 days, then eating for 5 days, then cleansing again in repetition.

That’s a personal choice, just make sure to use the easing out process.

This entails drinking orange juice for one day, then juices, soups, and broths for the next day, then only eating live foods from then on forward, adopting a healthy set of eating habits.

If you are pregnant, nursing, or hypoglycemic, you should not follow this diet, and as with most diets, you should consult your doctor before undertaking this test of willpower.

Many people use herbal laxatives throughout the day instead of just the salt water flush, so do what feels right for you.

Liquid Diet Plan 3

The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox

“21 pounds in 21 days” is the promise that Dr. Roni DeLuz of the Martha’s Vineyard holistic Retreat’s program promises.

For this diet, a dieter drinks a specific liquid every two hours. Each day, this totals out to 48 oz water, 40 oz herbal tea, 16 oz vegetable soup, and 32 oz of a green vegetable drink.

The plan gives you approximately 1,000 calories a day, including 20 grams of protein.

The pillars of the plan are “Rest, Reduce, Rebuild”.

The author states that by ingesting liquid nutrients, you eliminate toxins and reset the body. The nutrient-rich drinks help you rebuild.

It wasn’t created to be a weight loss diet, but the detoxification effect allows the loss of unwanted weight.

There are 3 general paths someone on this liquid diet plan follows, the two-day, seven-day, or 21-day plan.

They’re all the same schedule of intake, but it’s suggested to do the 21-day plan yearly, the 7-day plan once a season, and the 2-day plan weekly.

There’s a bunch of supplements and services that people on the Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox take, such as enzyme capsules, aloe vera, and a herb cleansing formula.

They also undergo lymph drainage massages, cellulite treatment, liver and kidney flushes, body wraps, detoxifying baths, and weekly coffee enemas.

This cleanse is supposed to metabolize the dieter’s fat, releasing the stored toxins and flushing them from the system. This cleanse is aided by gentle exercise such as trampoline jumping or walking.

After this liquid diet plan, you should follow after-care directions, eating vegetables, drinking soy milk with a protein powder supplement, 3 ounces of salmon, and 1 cup of non-fat yogurt each day.

The body has to learn to digest again, and taking it slow allows for a gentle awakening of the digestive system.

No alcohol or coffee is allowed on this liquid diet plan. The cons to this diet are a severely limited amount of protein, causing muscle wasting, and a limited immune response.

The $199 pack, available through the author, includes the drinks for a 21 day program. They do suggest you read the book first.
21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox

Here are some recipes to use on the reboot diet plan or for any liquid diet plan.

Liquid Diet Plan Recipes:

Red Juice:
Peach or Pear Delight (Adapted from the Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Book)
1 sweet potato
2 ripe peaches or pears
1 red apple

If you have ever wondered how you can lose weight the fastest, doing a juice fast is the answer.

When To Do A Juicing Cleanse

The best times to do a cleanse are in the spring and in the autumn. According to Chinese medicine, the transition time between the seasons is about ten days before and after each equinox or solstice.

This runs from about March 10th to April 1st in the spring and between September 11th to October 2nd in the fall. Spring fasts are great using lemons or greens or a combo of both. You can dilute lemon with equal amounts of water or use lemon and honey. Also, you can do the spring-time cleansing recipe below. Juicing and weight loss work together to achieve glowing health and a slim body.

Spring Juicing Cleanse

          • 2 tbsps fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 8 -10 ounces of spring water

 

Mix up and drink up to 12 glasses a day. This is the only thing you should eat or drink other than water, herbal teas like chamomile or peppermint tea. You can also drink any herbal laxative tea you like.

Fall Cleansing

Fresh fruit juice or fresh vegetable juice can be diluted with an equal amount of water can stimulate the body to cleanse itself.

Some good vegetable juices to use are carrots, juicing beets, celery and greens. You can also make soup broths by boiling an assortment of vegetables like potato, carrot, celery, peppers, turnip, squash or any other vegetable.

You then strain the vegetables out (reserving for later to use in soups or stews) and drink the leftover water. The leftover water is full of vitamins and minerals and will induce cleansing. In the fall a fast of 3 to 5 days can be done, by using either water or a variety of freshly squeezed juices.

Those juices could include the master cleanse above, or an apple/grape juice mixed with lemon juice and water , or vegetables juices and broth.

Autumn Juicing Cleanse

Here is another of our healthy juicing recipes you can use to do a fall cleanse.

          • 3 cups spring water
  • 1 tbsp. of fresh ginger root
  • 1-2 stalks green onion, chopped up
  • cilantro to taste, chopped up
  • a pinch of two of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsps. of olive oil
  • the juice or 1 lemon

 

Start by boiling the water and adding the ginger root. Simmer 15 minutes and turn off the heat. Add green onion, cilantro, cayenne , oil and the lemon juice. Remove and cover to steep for 15 more minutes. This will give you a good juicing cleanse in the fall. If you’re main concern is to lose weight take a look at these weight loss juicing recipes.

of the belly bloat diet plan.

Keep in mind that you will have to stick to a diet like this for at least 6 weeks or more
to see good results. And of course, you will have to maintain it if you want to keep your tummy slim forever.

The most important thing you should know before you start is to never overeat. The number one thing that will make your belly stick out is overeating!

Also stay away from foods that might bloat you. Foods with lots of salt or too much yeast can make you bloat. Limit the amount of bread you eat each day and put away the salt shaker.

Flat Stomach Diet – One Day Sample Menu

Drink 8-10 glasses water every day on a flat stomach diet.

Breakfast

1 packet instant oatmeal or cream of wheat
1 cup milk
handful of raw sunflower seeds, unsalted
1 apple
water

Lunch

1 slice of deli turkey
1 low fat 3 oz stick or piece of cheese
1/2 cup grape tomatoes
water

Dinner

3 oz chicken breast boneless skinless
1 cup string beans with a little butter
1/2 cup brown rice
water

You can see that this diet has no bread since bread can bloat you like we mentioned earlier. You also drink lots of water because water will help flush out any toxic build up that might be contributing to
your bloat.

A lot of what gets stuck in a bloated belly is toxic material your body is hanging on to and not eliminating. The trick is to try to get all that build up out of your intestines by eating only low-fat, low-calorie foods and eating fruits and veggies that contain water.

You could also try doing a detox diet for three weeks where you eat plain natural foods, or do a juice diet and drink only fresh fruit and vegetables for a number of days.

This is a simple one day example of a flat stomach diet to reduce the tummy area. So many people experience belly bloat that a guy wrote a book on it called “The Flat Belly Diet”

Since there is more information to just this one day diet you should consider getting the book and following his more detailed long-term diets.

Again, the flat stomach diet can be followed by getting the flat belly diet book from amazon or perhaps the library.

Eat Clean Diet

eat clean dietThe idea behind the eat clean diet is to eliminate over-processed, refined foods, especially things like white flour and sugar.

This diet was created by Tosca Reno a family nutrition expert, TV host and bestselling author.

She is a mother of several children and at one time weighed over 200 pounds. She was concerned with her health and realized that in order to live a long healthy life for her kids she would have to lose weight and improve her diet.

She created the eat clean diet plan and eat clean diet recipes and wrote a book about this special diet.

If you are concerned with not only dropping some weight but greatly improving your health this may be the diet for you.

 Basic guidelines for the eat clean diet.

  1. Eat 5-6 small meals each day.

2.  Eat every few hours. Every 2-3 hours is a good guideline.

3.  Make sure to combine lean protein and complex carbs at every meal.

4.   Drink at least 8 glasses of fresh water daily.

5.   Don’t miss meals, especially breakfast.

6. Carry a cooler full of clean eating meals to get     through your day.

7.   Avoid all processed, refined foods.. especially sugar and white flour products. They are not good for healthy diets.

8.    Avoid all saturated fats and trans fats.

9.    Avoid colas and juices full of sugar.

10.  Consume adequate good fats (EFA’s each day)

11.  Don’t use alcohol because it is another form of sugar.

12.  Avoid foods with many calories that have no nutritional value.

13.  Eat fresh fruits and vegetables for the fiber content, vitamins and enzymes they contain.

14.  Stick to smaller, proper size food portions.

The actual recipes and more information is in her cookbook (one of many actually) which you can get right here. Tosca Reno’s Eat Clean Cookbook: Delicious Recipes That Will Burn Fat and Re-Shape Your Body!

 Eat Clean Diet Plan Example

Breakfast

Options:  (her book has fabulous recipes)

  • porridge
  • egg white and spinach scramble
  • cottage cheese pancakes

Lunch

  • Tofu cabbage rolls
  • Chicken strips with tofu
  • Low fat turkey burgers

Dinner

  • Roasted salmon
  • Pork tenderloin
  • Tuna salad

Snacks can include salads, fresh fruit and veggies and low calorie foods that are not packaged, processed or refined.

The most important thing to remember with this diet happens in the grocery store when you shop. Make sure you read labels and do not buy foods that are refined and processed, full of sugar or white flour.

This means not buying pre-packaed conveinence foods but rather natural whole foods as close to the way nature made them.

Try shopping in the organic section because many of those foods are minimally processed and all around healthier for you.

It might be more expensive but if you cut back on how much food you eat, you will find that your grocery bill stays about the same.

Eating  clean will clear out your body of all the toxic junk you have built up over time and help your body to function better.

A healthy body absorbs more nutrition because your body starts to digest the food better and also eliminate the digested foods easier and faster.

When your body is very efficient at these processes it is much harder to put weight back on. And also harder for diseases to take hold and develop.

To learn more about the principles of the eat clean diet get the book called The Eat-Clean Diet, Fast Fat-Loss that lasts Forever!

It is a great book to help you with your weight loss and overall health.

 

Here is a great resource with lots of information on diet and fitness. Don’t Miss it!

Liver Cleanse Diet

The Fat Flush Plan -Liver Cleanse Diet Introduction

liver-cleanse-dietThe best liver cleanse diet I have seen so far is the fat flush diet plan, created by Ann Louise Gittleman Ph.D., C.N.S.  It was designed to cleanse out the liver in order to help the body burn fat and calories more efficently.

The fat flush plan is not just a weight loss diet it also shows you how to improve your health while losing weight. It is a healthy liver diet and weight loss program all in one.

It is a three phase diet plan that is made up of:

Phase 1. A two week fat flush (based on 1100-1200 calories per day)

Phase 2. An ongoing fat flush (based on 1200-1500 calories per day)

Phase 3. A lifestyle eating plan (based on 1800 calories plus per day)

This diet plan allows you to also customize your diet based on you’re own tastes by choosing from  a list of fat flushing foods.

Read my fat flush diet review  to help you decide if this is the right diet for you.
————————————-

Phase 1    A two week fat flush liver cleanse diet

This starting phase for this liver cleansing diet is based on ridding the body of toxins and poisons in order to allow the liver to be able to perform it’s fat-burning duties more effectively.

It makes use of flax seed oil combined with diet and exercise to flush out the toxic liver. The oil can attract oil-soluble toxins that have been stuck in fatty tissue in the body and flush them out more easily.

This phase of the liver cleanse diet /fat flush plan is based on getting 1100-1200 calories a day.

You stay on this detox diet phase for two weeks. If you have more then 25 pounds to lose then you could stay on this phase for up to one month.

Phase 2   – The ongoing fat flush liver cleanse diet

This phase is the next step for anybody who has more weight to lose but wants to keep going on a more moderate cleansing and weight lose program.

It includes the fat flushing foods from phase 1 with up to two carbohydrate choices put back in the menu one at a time each week.

You may notice a slow down in weight lose because of the additional carboydrates that have been added back to the diet, however losing weight slowly is always a good thing.

It is based on getting 1200-1500 calories a day.

The goal here is to stay on this phase until you have reached your weight loss goals before moving on to the “lifestyle eating plan” phase.

It requires that you keep a journal so in case you add on a pound or two you will be able to track the foods that seem to disagree with you and cause bloating, sleepiness, gas etc.
This way you will learn which foods to cut out or minimize from your diet all together.

Phase 3 The lifestyle eating plan to stay clean and keep weight off

This phase is basically the life-time maintenance program for lifetime weight loss. It offers over 1800 calories a day and is designed to increase your vitality and well being for life.

Phase 3 is more appropriate for both pregnant and breast feeding women because of the higher calorie and calcium content. In this phase you will be adding back up to two dairy products as well as two more carbs.

As in phase two you will add these foods one at a time to make sure you can tolerate them without any allergic reactions.

Also, just in case you gain back some weight, you don’t want this weight to be in the form of toxic fat, such as cellulite for example. So, on this phase a supplement called CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is introduced.

In a clinical trial in which one of eighty overweight people who dieted had regained weight, it was found that those who took CLA put the weight back on in a ratio of half fat to half muscle.

In summary

All three phases of this diet and exercise program include powerful nutrients that cleanse and support the liver help with fat and carbohydrate metabolism. These include
dandelion root, Oregon grape root, methionine, inositol, choline, lipase, chromium, milk thistle and the nutrient L-carnitine, an amino acid shown to raise the body’s fat burning ability eleven times.

If you have read to the bottom of this page then it means you are ready to move on. So, let’s take a closer look at this fat flush liver cleanse diet.

Juicing Recipes For Weight Loss
3 Day Juice Diet

juicing recipes for weight loss

You will lose weight lightening fast with juicing recipes for weight loss.

Juice is liquid gold when it comes to losing weight quick. Not only will you lose weight quick, you will feel like a million bucks!

Just do a juice fast diet and you can lose 1 pound per day, every day that you stick to the diet.

Note* Please read the comment at the bottom of the page (if  you are considering a juice fast) as one visitor asked a very important question.

That’s 1 pound every day as long as you drink fresh juice and nothing else. You can drink as much juice as you like but keep in mind you should not stay on an all juice diet for too long. These juicing recipes for weight loss should not be attempted for more than 3 days at a time.

A good idea is to use a juice fast diet for a couple days, then eat lightly for a few days, and then do a couple more days of juice fasting.

Alternate eating with these juice fast days and you will be pleasantly surprised how much quick weight loss you will see.

If you are dying of hunger on the juice fast days then you can sneak in a few grapes here and there. Grapes are mostly water anyway so they can’t screw up your diet.

Always check with your doctor before starting any type of fast, especially if you are older or on medication.

Juice Diets Are Liquid Gold

Here’s why…

1.  They clean the toxins from your body. ( the faster you get rid of toxins, the faster you drop weight)

2.  Juice provides pure nourishment straight from mother nature.

3.  Juice gives your digestive system a chance to heal and relax. ( It is very important to have healthy digestion, especially when it comes to keeping the weight off because you will absorb more nutrients from the foods you do eat. This in turn helps you feel less hungry all the time.)

4.  You will drop about one pound per day on a juice diet and of course this is why you are here visiting me on this wonderful day.

For the following juicing recipes for weight loss you will need to have a juicer before you can do this juice diet. If you don’t already own one then you can get one at your local shopping store or plaza.

A Few Tips On Juicers

I personally use Jack La Lannes juicer and I find it terrific. It makes lots of juice and has special safety features. Really great if you have kids and are safety conscious.

Click the image of the juicer if you want to check out this juicer.

Whatever you do, do not use the BIG BOSS JUICER.  It was an infomercial juicer.

Infomercial stuff is usually low quality and is just made in order to make big bucks for someone.You often get low quality dollar store stuff.

I bought the big boss juicer because it was the cheapest one and boy was that a big mistake.

They did not even smooth the inside edges of the pieces when they made it in the factory so when I went to scoop out the pulp that gets left over from the juice in order to clean it out, I sliced my finger open.

Do not buy the BIG BOSS JUICER.  It was cheaply made and it sucks BIG BOSS TIME.

Below are your three days of juicing recipes for weight loss to use on this diet.

There are a total of 6 juices and you can drink them in any order you like and as much as you like.

Except you will probably find that sipping 3 glasses of juice is usually best. One for morning, noon and night. That is, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You want to drink lots of water in between juices ( and don’t forget to sneak a few grapes)

Drink these juices for 3 days if  you want  fast weight loss or use them to do a one day a week fast with a low calorie diet like the 1000 calorie diet plan.

Your Juicing Recipes For Weight Loss

 

Fun Fruit Juice

1 pear,1 lemon, 1 wedge pineapple (I personally love lots of pineapple, so if you do too use lots of it in this drink)

Vegetable V8 Cocktail

1-2 tomatoes, 1 carrot, 2 celery stocks, 1/2 cucumber

Can’t Elope Surpise

1/2 cup grapes, 1 apple, 1 orange, 1/4 cantaloupe

Berry Nice

1 cup raspeberries or strawberries, 1 cup blueberries, 2 oranges peeled

Fruit Delight

1 wedge pineapple, 1 wedge watermelon, 6 strawberries, 1 cantaloupe wedge

Lean Green Machine

1 big handful green grapes, 1 kiwi, 1 cucumber, a few broccoli flowerets

Instructions: Peel all fruits and vegetables and cut up into smaller pieces then feed slowly through your juicer. Drink up within half hour.

 

Juicing Tip

Peel all fruit or vegetables before you juice. It is advisable (if you are concerned about toxins that are sprayed on produce) to use a mix of 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar and soak veggies or fruit for 15 minutes before juicing.  This will take off most of the chemicals that may have been sprayed on during growing.

Most fruits for juicing are peeled anyway, so it is mainly the vegetables that you will want to soak in the vinegar/water solution. If you soak porous fruits like peaches for example they may absorb some of the vinegar flavor so take care not to soak soft fruits.

These juicing recipes for weight loss are not the only juice recipes out there. However, they are good starter recipes for you to try to help you loss weight for a shorter period of time.

High Fiber Diet Plan

high_fiber-diet-planFollowing a high fiber diet plan can help those that suffer from constipation or other bowel related problems.

You need roughly 25 to 35 grams of fiber daily, depending of course, on your size. Woman tend to need around 25 grams or so and men 35 grams of fiber or more.

Fiber, also known as roughage or bulk, is not hard to get in your food, but we often have to make a conscious effort to get enough of it. It can be easy to eat highly processed junk foods with little to no fiber because they are quick and convenient

What Is Fiber?

Fiber is basically the parts of fruits, vegetables and grains that cannot be digested but that help move food though our digestive tract. It is important to keep the body cleaned out in order to avoid foods just sitting in our system and putrefying. When food is putrefied in our body, diseases can start breeding. A high fiber diet plan helps eliminate toxins.

Other studies have shown that getting enough fiber has cholesterol-lowering benefits.

Benefits Of Dietary Fiber

Science shows that high-fiber diets and high fiber diet plans can reduce the risk of chronic heart disease, diabetes, and diverticulitis.

 

Soluble Or Insoluble Fiber?

There are two different types of high-fiber foods. Foods high in soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Click here for a list of the best sources of both types and some tips on how to get more fiber in your diet.

List of High Fiber Foods

To start on your high fiber diet plan you need to either chose high fiber foods from a high fiber foods list or use the following high fiber diet plan as a sample to get started.

You can also use the list of high fiber foods and create your own fiber diet eating plan or menus that will be fiber rich.
——————————————————————————————————————————

High Fiber Diet Plan Sample

Here is a high fiber eating plan that gives you some idea of how to eat to get enough fibre. It shows the food and the amount of fiber only, calories are excluded for this example.
You can easily find a list of calories in foods here.
