The Fruit Flush Diet
The Fruit Flush Diet is a three-day detoxification program designed to flush the toxin buildup from the body. This diet calls for lots of fruits to help dissolve toxic build-up that are a result from a regular diet of junk food, alcohol, artificial ingredients, and more. It has become one of the most popular diets due to its easy to follow plan and amazing results. During the entire three days of the diet, you should become slightly hungry every two hours, at which time, you will eat. This eating pattern fuels your body and keeps you from ever being overly hungry.
This three-day challenge has two phases broken up into three days. Day 1, you drink a protein shake for each meal. Day two, you begin eating fresh fruit every two hours, plus a dinner of raw vegetables with a small amount of protein. By following this you should be consuming about 1000-1200 calories a day. With that being said you can potentially lose up to ten pounds in just three days by simply eating fruit all day. Although, more than half of the ten pounds you lose is said to be water weight this diet can help you quickly feel a difference. This is the perfect diet to kick start a new long term program, get ready for a special event, or break a food addiction. This diet will also help first time dieters build the confidence they need to reach their goals. If you decide this diet is right for you then you can purchase the book, Fruit Flush 3 Day Detox, on creator, Jay Robb’s, web page. This is a 48-page book that gives instructions for the 3-day cleansing diet based on protein powder and fruit.
The only foods you can eat while on this diet are fresh fruit, raw vegetables, protein drinks, and lean sources of protein. You can eat any type of fresh fruit or vegetable no matter the sugar content, but be sure the protein shake has no artificial ingredients. It is important to remember to only drink water while on this diet.

This diet was created in 2005 by clinical nutritionist, Jay Robb, for people who feel they are in need of a detox. The diet was intended as a detoxification program to remove harmful materials from the body to increase stamina, as well as overall health. He targeted his diet towards people who were showing signs of bloating, irritability, carbohydrate addiction, and over eating. He claims that the key to maintaining health and long-term weight loss is to eat a balanced healthy diet with periodic cleanses with fresh raw fruit.
