How to Do a Detox Diet (Without Starving Yourself)

It's food baby season! With the holidays right around the corner, experts say a detox diet is a good fix for those apple pie hangovers—it reboots your system if you've been, well, less than healthy. Doctor and registered dietician Christine Gerbstadt, MD, author of The Doctor's Detox Diet, breaks down a healthy, effective cleanse. Try it for three to five days a couple of times a year.

Load Up on Liquids

H2O flushes out your system by keeping your kidneys, liver, colon, and lymph nodes (organs that filter waste products from your body) running smoothly. Don't kill yourself over guzzling a ton if you're not thirsty, but aim to drink about one to two quarts a day, plus one to two cups of tea or coffee. A good way to tell if you're hydrated enough: You should be able to pee every couple of hours, and your urine should be fairly clear.

Cut Cals—But Don't Slash Them

Stick to 1400-1600 calories a day. You'll lose a little weight but still have energy. If you consume fewer than 1200 calories, your body begins burning muscle instead of fat, plus you won't be getting enough vitamins.

Start With a Healthy Breakfast

We know you hear this all the time, but it's so true. Skipping breakfast sets you up to binge later because you're not getting enough energy to kick off the day. Good options: A bowl of oatmeal sprinkled with cinnamon and unsalted nuts, Greek yogurt with berries, an apple topped with peanutbutter, or a scrambled egg with beans or salmon and a slice of whole-wheat toast.

Lighten Up

Of course, sometimes it's not feasible to make a smoothie—like, if you have a lunch meeting, you're going on a date, or you just feel hungry or low-energy. In that case, fill your plate with lean protein (fish, skinless chicken or turnkey breast, beans), whole grains, and plenty of veggies.

Snack Smart

When the late afternoon cravings kick in, opt for air-popped popcorn, unsalted nuts, fruit, or a tiny piece of chocolate if you have a sweet tooth.

Break Up With These Foods

Cut out refined sugars, white flour and rice, high-fat meats, dairy (other than plain, nonfat yogurt and milk), and all soda—both diet and regular.

Get Moving

You might not feel up to a high-intensity run or spin class when you're cleansing, but low-level exercise amps up the effects. It keeps your blood circulating and flushes out toxins.

…But Gluten Isn't Evil

Despite the gluten-free trend, Dr. Gerbstadt maintains that whole grains help you detox: They remove cholesterol build-up from your GI tract. Shoot for two small servings a day.
