7 Day Green Juice Detox Diet

Juicing has become a popular trend because it is a quick fix that gives dramatic weight loss results in a short period combined with health benefits like detoxing the liver and gut, clearer skin, and improved mood.

 

Juice detoxes may seem like a fad but they are an amazing way to jumpstart yourself into healthier eating habits, increase energy, and even eliminate and reverse some health problems.

 

Before we get on with our plans, let’s talk about what is juicing, how it works, and the hurdles you may face.

What Is The 7 Day Green Juice Detox Diet?

A 7-day juice diet is one of the many different ways of juicing or juice diets. Some do it for 3 days while some do it for even 10 days. But, what is it?

 

Also called a juice fast, cleanse, or detox, it is a weight loss plan where you extract and consume the contents of vegetables and fruits so as to lose weight fast and detoxify the body.

 

These drinks can be store-bought but homemade are recommended the most. Some may have the pulp in them but usually, they don’t.

How To Do A 7 Day Green Juice Detox Diet Plan?

There are many ways you can do a juice cleanse:

 

  1. Drinking nothing except fruit or vegetable extracts and other beverages for the time period. Other beverages include water, and unsweetened tea or coffee.
  2. You can combine your juices with dietary supplements. Since you won’t be eating any food while on the plan, dietary supplements will be vital since they will add nutrients such as vitamins, fiber, amino acids, and minerals to your body. 
  3. Combining juices with methods that detoxify and cleanse the colon.
  4. Using the liquids as meal replacements, i.e, replacing your breakfast, or dinner, or both with these drinks.
  5. Combining the fruits and vegetables with certain diets so as to promote weight loss. These diets will probably be low-calorie making them no more than 800 or 900 calories a day.
  6. For the people that are new to this cleansing method, you are allowed to have smoothies and small amounts of snacks. We will get to the snacks in a while!

Can You Do A 7 Day Fruit Juice Diet Instead?

Some people would prefer this option as fruit juice tastes way better than vegetable juices. But, the 7-day juice diet must include drinks made out from both vegetables and fruits, preferably in the same cup. If that is not possible then half of your daily intake should be green vegetable juice.

 

Individually, fruits are an amazing source of crucial vitamins and minerals like potassium, Vitamin C, and folate and are high in dietary fiber. They also give a wide array of health-boosting antioxidants, including flavonoids. A diet that is high in fruits and vegetables can decrease your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, and inflammation.  

Giving Up On Juicing. Why Does That Happen?

It’s usually because of the below reasons:

  • You Don’t Enjoy Raw Juices

You got the juicer as part of a New Year’s Resolution or diet plan and could bring yourself to do something you don’t enjoy.

  • It’s A Lot Of A Effort For A Little Return

You spend a portion of time cutting and deseeding fruits and veggies and a little more cleaning the juicer. The juice itself gets drained in seconds. This is why you believe that the fruit of labor doesn’t make the venture profitable.

  • You Can’t Spare The Time

You have a rushed life and don’t even have time to cook meals. Juicing is something you can’t afford.

How To Resolve These Setbacks?

You can take easy actions to make juicing fast, interesting, and easy for you:

  • Adapt Juicing Recipes To You Taste

I hear you if you say you don’t like cabbage and spinach in your juice. I am not a fan either. What you can do is put a bit of what you dislike with what you do like.

 

Don’t like cabbage? Mask it with orange juice

 

Don’t like spinach? Mask it with watermelon juice

 

Don’t like beetroot? Add a few mint leaves.

 

Experiment and you will find what works for you and what doesn’t. You can even take a look at the chart below and take inspiration. 

  • Buy A Time-saving Juicer

There are very convenient juicers available nowadays and if your current one is hard to run and hard to clean, I suggest buying a new one.

 

I looked for these features for my juicer:

  • Wide Shut: should be able to take whole fruits and veggies without a need for chopping.
  • Maximum Extraction: the extracts left behind should be hard and the juice should be in your glass.
  • Easy Cleanable Parts: post juicing cleaning should be minimal.
  • Safety: should not work if assembled incorrectly, shouldn’t get hot fast, and more.
  • Good Looking: yes, I like that.
  • Make A Juice Box

To save time on a hectic morning, put a “juicing box” in the fridge the night before. Or even pack a number of boxes over the weekend. No need to be blurry-eyed wondering what to juice then ditching the idea because you don’t have the needed time to peel things, and or strain your brain for combos.

 

When you would need it, open the juicing box, throw the contents in the juicer and have a glass of juice within seconds.

What Are The Best 7 Day Green Juice Detox Snacks?

As written above, the diet detox doesn’t allow any food. But, for you to do a healthy body detox, you should include healthy foods in your diet. Some healthy snacks that you could include in your 7-day green juice detox diet include:

 

Hummus And Vegetables/Fruits

Hummus is made from chickpeas which is a great source of dietary fiber and plant-based protein. Eating whole vegetables and fruits will also help in gaining the fiber lost through juicing.

Nut Butter And Vegetables/Fruits

Like hummus, nut butters are also a rich source of protein. They also provide healthy fats which will be missing from your juices.

Low-Fat Cheese

Unlike full fat cheese, low-fat cheeses have fewer fats and proteins. Cheese itself is also a great option for vitamins, protein, calcium, and other minerals.

Assorted Nuts

Nuts give your body healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They also decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol in the body and decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Greek Yogurt And Berries

Berries are a great low-calorie snack that can be eaten on your 7 day juice diet for weight loss. Greek yogurt gives your body high amounts of calcium, potassium, and protein.

Boiled Eggs

They are considered to be a complete protein which means they give the body the 9 essential amino acids that it can’t produce by itself.
