Quick Weight Loss – 24 Hour Detox Flush

During the past month, I’ve been working hard to get on track with my exercise and weight loss goals with the 30-Day Weight Loss Challenge.

So far my results have been amazing! But despite my knowledge and discipline – I slip up here and there. And my choices aren’t always in my best interest. If you’re in this boat too, you’ve had a bad eating day or two, and want to get back on track quickly, read on my friend because I have a few tricks up my sleeve!

I will be honest, I’m a little frustrated, because I should know better. But at the same time, I’m incredibly optimistic that by committing to some structure for the next few weeks, I can make the quick weight loss a reality and get back to my ideal weight, smile at the scale, and stop deleting so many pictures that are just “bad angels.” Are you with me?!


Creating a plan

Life is a toxic process one way or another. Everybody goes through times that toss them off their regular schedule and into an abyss of lethargy, junk food, cocktails, etc.

So it’s not really a matter of “if” this has happened to you, it’s “when” and “how long will you let it last?” that are the real critical questions. I’ve had some significant changes go on in my life over the past year that have made a little shift in my lifestyle.

But my biggest issues these last 2-3 weeks were vacations! We worked out, but with no plan. We tried to make good food decisions, but with zero accountability.

The result is a puffed up, frustrated version of my old self. The good news is I’m a nutritionist and experienced runner. And I know I can turn this around today.

I’m home now and ready to take this on before it gets too out of hand. Based on what I know and have learned from experience and other professionals, I can make a pretty killer plan. The trick is, sticking to it.

This is a two part process that starts with a quick weight loss – 24 hour detox flush! Because I’m back from travel, I think a lot of this weight, isn’t actually fat. There was some garbage attached to water in there that was really causing some inflated scale metrics. This was my plan to flush it out so that I got an accurate start weight on the scale so I have a goal for my longer term plan.

Here’s the Quick Weight Loss – 24 Hour Detox Flush Plan

  1. 5:30 am 1 cup black coffee and 16 oz water
  2. 6:00 am Hot Yoga + 30 min easy run
  3. 7:30 am 10 min Steam Room + Detox Juice + 16 oz water
  4. 9:30 am Detox Juice + 16 oz water
  5. 11:30 am Detox Nut Milk + 16 oz Water
  6. 1:30 pm Food: 1 cup quinoa, 1 cup black beans, 1/4 cup edamame (I just can’t handle being hungry)
  7. 4:00 pm Detox Juice + 16 oz water
  8. 6:30 pm Walk with Friend
  9. 8:30 pm Lean Protein Shake
  10. 9:00 pm Epsom Salt Bath + 16 oz
  11. 9:30 pm Dieters Tea

Here is some rationale on my decisions on what to include in my rapid weight loss – 24 hour flush plan:

The Juice Cleanse is great because it’s full of nutrition and flavor and it keeps you from thinking too much about food. I had the lemon and cayenne one just before I went for my hike and it was the least tasty of the group. But  you know what, it really did the trick and I wasn’t hungry at all on our 2 hour voyage.

A healthy hike with a friend instead of  dinner or happy hour is a great way to tip the caloric scales in your favor. Instead of eating 500 calories off plan, we burned them as we viewed scenic Torrey Pines. And our conversation is 100% interruption free, allowing us to get fully caught up on all the great happenings in our life.

I opted for a lean protein shake before bed instead of another juice because I wasn’t really getting the digestive rest benefits of the juice cleanse anyhow, since I’d had a healthy lunch. And after our long hike, I figured 17 g of protein would serve me well as I slept and let my body detox itself throughout the night.

Dieters tea is no joke! Be careful with it and only take it at night. I’m not exactly sure why or how it works, but it will clean you out in about 6-8 hours. So timing is critical. I had a friend who had to call in sick to work after taking it at the wrong time.

Careful with this - it's serious stuff!

The rest of it is just drinking a gallon of water and flushing it out — taking garbage with it!

The end results of my quick weight loss – 24 hour detox flush?

I lost 4 lbs in 24 hours! Woot! My stomach feels flatter, I feel leaner and this was a great kick start! I have another good plan in place to slowly take off an additional 4-6 more pounds in the next 6 weeks. I will share that plan too, as I’m pretty excited about it! But for today, I’m basking in the glow of my detox success and will share the longer term plan next week.

Yay for Quick Weight Loss – 24 Hour Detox Flush!

What do you think of that plan? Have you tried any of those detox techniques before? Anybody have any other quick weight loss tips?

    where do you get that detox juice?

    • Teresa

      I got that one from Nectar Juice bar that just opened in La Jolla. They have a great special for $39 for 1 day cleanse. They are usually about $60-$75. My friend Kate loves Suja and my friend Jen loves the Blue Print Cleanse. They should all deliver. There is also the Detox Lounge downtown. Or, you can always buy a juicer and about 15lbs of vegetables 🙂

  • cori rose

    oh, and the dieters tea?

  • Tracey Rodrigues

    Oh shitty ! Names of products just not sure where or if found in South Africa.

    Hi, I just came across your site and the 24h detox/flush. You said you got the juices from Necter. My question: did you buy their 1-day Cleanse or did you buy individual juices? Their 1-day cleanse says it comes with 6 juices and a nut milk, but when I look at your list you had 3 detox juices plus the nut milk. Help, I’m confused! :). Also, what do you think of drinking Yogi detox teas a couple times a day and reducing the water accordingly?
    Love your site!

      Hi Kerstin! Good eye on the Nectar juice cleanse! I wanted to do their full day, but hey were out of them the day I was there. I live DT, and was not in the mood to drive back up the next day so I just got 6 of their a la carte juices. She didn’t suggest it, but it worked fine for my purposes. I get too hungry on juice cleanses anyhow, so I had to eat mid-day regardless. For Yogi Detox Tea — that stuff is no joke!! I only take it at night and let it settle in. I’m sure it’s different for everybody, but I wouldn’t suggest drinking it throughout the day — it’s pretty powerful 😉 So glad you like the site and keep the questions and updates coming! Cheers!

      • Kerstin

        Thanks, but I’m still confused because you list that you used 3 juices (at 7:30, 9:30 and 4:00, plus nut milk at 11:30) and the cleanse comes with 6. Which 3 did you use? Does it matter? Thanks for the heads up on the Yogi Detox tea. I had seen your warning about the Super Dieter’s Tea but didn’t know that the Yogi Detox was so powerful too. Thanks for all the info!! 🙂

    Losing weight in 24 hrs is a dream, and reading your post was a dream come true.
    Definitely gonna try this one out.
    Thanks for sharing it.

  • Mark Young

    I’m going to have to try this out. Now that spring is finally here it’s time to get myself and my dog back in shape. Proper diet and exercise will hopefully work for both of us.
