First thing in the morning

3 day detox diet

To get your stomach prepared for the day we recommend waking up each morning with a drink of hot water with lemon.

Do this by simply putting a few slices of lemon in a mug and pour over some hot water.

We encourage you to drink as many of these drinks as you like during the day.

Lemons have important antibacterial and immune-building benefits with very good levels of -

  • bioflavonoids,
  • citric acid,
  • magnesium,
  • calcium and
  • vitamins.

Lemons also promotes digestion, which will aid your weight loss efforts during this program.


  • Half a cucumber
  • 3-4 medium carrots
  • Small lemon
  • 1 inch ginger root
  • 1 apple

Juice the cucumber, carrots, lemon and ginger.

Feed the apple into your juicer after the ginger.

This juice is good when served at room temperature or with a little ice.

Why this is good for detox

You will notice that cucumbers, celery and lemons form a core part of our 3 day detox diet.

The cucumber and the lime are terrific cleansers and very good for your hair and skin.

Mid morning

  • 3-4 stalks celery
  • Half a cucumber
  • 1 apple
  • Small lemon
  • 10 oz wheatgrass
  • 3-4 spinach leaves

Wheatgrass power

Ann Wigmore claims 1 ounce of fresh wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 2.5 pounds of vegetables in nutritional value.

Put the spinach leaves into your juicer first and push it through with the celery and cucumber.

Add the wheatgrass to the juice drink.

If you want to juice your own wheatgrass you will need a masticating juicer since a centrifugal juicer will not be able to extract the juice from the grass.

Alternatively you can buy 100% freeze-dried wheatgrass juice from a reliable supplier

Some experts say that wheatgrass powder preserves all the nutrients and enzymes and using the powder is certainly more convenient.

It also means that you don’t need to buy a masticating juicer.

Why this is good for detox

One of the pioneers in research about wheatgrass is Dr. Ann Wigmore.

According to her, the value of wheatgrass juice during detox is that it will remove wastes that clog your cells, blood, tissues and organs.

The wheat grass plant contains high concentrations of:-

  • chlorophyll,
  • active enzymes,
  • amino acids,
  • vitamins,
  • one of the richest sources of vitamin A and vitamin C,
  • calcium,
  • iron,
  • magnesium,
  • potassium,
  • phosphorus,
  • sodium,
  • sulfur,
  • zinc,
  • cobalt and
  • protein.


  • 2-3 carrots
  • handfull of mixed green leafy vegetables
  • 1 stick celery
  • 2 apples
  • 1 small beetroot
  • 1 slice of lemon or lime

You will now explore more of the nutritional value of green leafy vegetables in this drink.

A good mix will be to include a variety of kale, parsley and spinach.

Always place the green leafy vegetables in your juicer first and follow them with the harder items like the beets.

Why this is good for detox

There would be no life on earth without green leaves.

The green leafies contains high levels of chlorophyl, fiber, magnesium, calcium, folate, vitamin C and beta carotenes.

One of the most important phytochemicals in green vegetables that have many proven health benefits is chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll converts the sun's energy into a form that plants, animals and people can use. It has a remarkable similarity to hemoglobin the compound that carries oxygen in your blood.
