This 7 day detox is perfect if you have an event/holiday coming up and don’t have time to do a full 30 day detox.
Although I personally think the 30 days to healthy living and beyond is the way to go I know sometimes we have a wedding or a beach holiday to go to and we’ve lost track of time and it’s only a week or 10 days away.
This 7 day detox will allow you to get rid of a lot of bloating that you may have. It’s said that the average person holds 5-20 lbs (approximately 2-9kg) of toxic sludge in their systems – yuk! Imagine if you get rid of that – less bloating, flatter stomach and you would have to feel amazing wouldn’t you?
This detox is also a great idea to do before starting a healthy eating plan as it gives you a boost you need at the beginning of any change in the way you eat, so what is it?
The 7 Day Body Cleanse (to give it it’s correct name) is a delicious lemon-ginger flavored formula that you make into a drink and sip throughout the day. It was designed to help detoxify your body and prepare it for a weight management regime.
It contains Ginger, Aloe, Glutamine and Choline which basically helps –
- Detoxify the body while supporting the gastrointestinal system.
- Assists with gentle elimination of toxins.
- Supports healthy bowel movements.
Sounds Good? What Do You Need to Do Next?
While waiting for the cleanse to arrive plan your meals for the 7 days, for maximum results you want to avoid processed foods, sugar, gluten, dairy, alcohol and coffee. Planning your meals and snacks ahead of time makes it more likely that you will stick to the plan (remember, it’s only for 7 days).
When the body cleanse arrives you can plan to start your detox from the next morning.
Mix the sachet with 1 litre of warm water (from the hot tap) and shake before sipping. You want to sip this throughout the day. Now before taking a drink throughout the day you will need to shake it as sediment does settle on the bottom. I use my Arbonne water bottle to make mine in and drink it from!
What Can I Eat if I Have to Avoid EVERYTHING!
There’s actually a lot of things you can eat, but I must admit I would find breakfasts difficult if it wasn’t for my protein powder which allows me to make smoothies and/or smoothie bowls. You don’t need to use it, but a good quality pea, rice and cranberry protein like the Arbonne Essentials Protein Powder that I use helps keep me full all morning and tastes delicious.
You don’t need it though, here’s a couple of recipes, one with the protein and one without …
Black Forest Smoothie
- 200 ml water
- 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
- 1 tsp cacao powder
- 1/2 avocado
- 8 frozen cherries
Blend all the ingredients together for a really thick smoothie that you can eat with a spoon. I serve this up in a bowl and top with a few nuts and some fresh raspberries when they’re in season.
Summer Blue Smoothie Bowl
- 2 tbsp blue spirulina
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 tbsp coconut yoghurt
Blend all of the ingredients together and serve in a bowl.
Main meals are easy, for lunch (depending on the season) you could make a batch of vegetable soup to eat or have a big chicken salad.
Dinners that I enjoy include steak with sweet potato fries and half a plate of salad, chicken in a creamy tomato sauce (made with coconut milk, basil and sun dried tomatoes) served over zucchini/courgette noodles or stir fry chicken and vegetables over brown rice.

What Are My Thoughts On The 7 Day Body Cleanse?
I loved it! I had already done the 30 days to healthy living a couple of times before the 7 day body cleanse was available in Australia (where I live). I took mine as part of the 30 days to healthy living (they recommend using it in week 3) and I loved the result.
I was amazed at how much toxins must’ve still been in my system when I took this, I felt a lot lighter (and I was!) after taking it. It tasted fantastic and I had lots of energy.
I am a little way off of my goal weight so I’ll be continuing with the 30 days to healthy living myself, but when I reach my goal I can see myself taking the 7 day body cleanse before going on holiday or a special event where I want to look great. It’s also something I will keep on hand for if I overindulge and feel a little sluggish (Christmas comes to mind!).
