If you follow me on instagram, you know I completed the 21 Day Clean Program earlier this month. I’ve never done a cleanse or detox before and was strangely excited and nervous to step out of my comfort zone and try something new. After reading Dr. Junger’s book Clean, I felt so much better going into the program with the goal to fuel my body while completely hitting the reset button.
So here are all the technical details. During the Program, you have a smoothie for breakfast, a normal lunch with foods approved from the elimination diet and a smoothie or soup for dinner. With each meal you take a supplement packet which includes an antimicrobial, digestive enzyme and silymarin and a daily probiotic. If you are hungry, you’re to snack with approved foods but most importantly you fast and leave a 12 hour window between dinner and breakfast which is when the detoxification takes place (after you have fully digested your food). The Clean Program Protein is made from brown rice and has tons of organic antioxidants and vitamins. The elimination diet excludes the most common inflammatory foods including gluten, dairy, eggs, bananas, nightshades, alcohol and coffee.
So now that you know what the Program entails, lets jump into my thoughts and personal experience.
