7 Day Detox Drink

Thanks to Jillian Michaels for this lovely little detox recipe. It’s not exact, but pretty close to it. I tweaked a tad.

Why am I detoxing? Well the extreme clean eating has made me feel like a balloon. Too much fiber! My system needs major recovery time. So instead of just water and green tea, I need something to help me out. This little drink helps get rid of all the toxins and bloat! And boy do I need a de-bloating. I feel like a balloon ready to be untied. Let me flap away in the air please!

This drink is mostly water. You drink 60 ounces a day for 7 days. That’s really not that hard to do if you think about it! It’s about half a gallon. I could down that right after a workout no problem!

For this recipe you will need: 

-60 ounces of natural spring water
-2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
-1 Tablespoon of sugar free cranberry juice
-1 detox teabag that includes dandelion root and licorice root (the key to getting rid of bloat!)

I use a gallon of water so I have a two day supply. Drink a couple ounces first so there is room for the other stuff!

Big thing of water :)

  1. This drink looks really good and I want to try it. Are there any side effects?

  2. Does the drink make you (go) to the bathroom and I don’t mean pee lol also where can I find the tea ?

    • You can find the tea at any health food store, whole foods, MOST grocery stores carry yogi tea now!!!

      And it should make u go. Lots of water actually helps bowel movements

  3. Do you eat during this detox or just drink?

  4. Chrissy says:

    Do you have to do a regular workout for this to take its effect on the de-bloating?

  5. Mary Musumeci says:

    What could I expect for weight loss if I do this for 2 weeks. Also does the drink curb your appetite

    • This is really just to “de bloat”. You are NOT substituting this for food. You might drop 2 lbs or so each week because of water weight though. But it won’t stay off because it’s just water weight.

  6. Mary Musumeci says:

    I purchased the tea but it does not have Detox on it. Can I still use it. Also is there a juice substitute Thanks

  7. Dawn Olton says:

    What are some foods I can eat to lose weight during the detox?

  8. Julie hall says:

    Silly question, am I supposed to drink all the 60 oz. in one day or spread it out over the 7 day period? I have never done a detox before, obviously huh?

  9. Not foolish instructions! I almost boiled a gallon of water! Sometimes you just need someone to make it simple for you. :) thanks for doing that!

  10. How long are you suppose to drink the detox drink? Like can I drink it week after week? I’ve never done this so im not sure!

  11. Lilly Abraham says:

    I just started the detox. Would it be beneficial if I tweaked it by mixing another detox recipe such as adding grapefruit, ginger, cucumbers etc to this drink mixture (Dr. Oz) ??

  12. Teighan Kyle says:

    I don’t have enough room in my fridge and am on the road all day and was wondering if this drink would work if I made it in a 800ml drink bottle and just re-topped
    The water before I finish it and keep the tea bag in the whole time? If this doesn’t sound like something that would work do you have any other suggestions for me? Thank you. :)

    • The problem is you won’t have the other ingredients each time. You could either make several bottles of it and just divide, OR do what you said and you will just be flushing with water. Water works too, a diuretic. That’s why when I bloat I drink a gallon a day to flush everything out.

  13. If you said you had 60 ounces for 7 days does that mean you only drank some once a day?

  14. If I do this, do we need to keep hydrated or is this all we drink?
    Congrats on your changes!

  15. Can you substitute the cranberry juice? I have the sugar free cherry juice…

  16. Just want to say that I tried this and LOVE it. Not only does it taste delicious, but my bloating has gone way down. I’ve lost 3lbs since Monday (it’s Thursday now), but I also stick to a diet around 1300 calories (I don’t count veggies in those calories because I’ve never heard of anyone who’s gotten fat from eating plenty of vegetables) and work out every day. Also, stay away from salty foods during this cleanse as it can increase bloat.

  17. so if you use a gallon jug do u have to double up the indredients?

  18. does it have to be distilled or spring water?

  19. Thanks for the step by step. :)

  20. Bianca Anzaldua says:

    Are you suppose to boil the tea?

  21. I just had a detox teabag from slendertoxtea yesterday, and all night I had abdominal pain and a stomach ache. It was very painful, what was I doing wrong and should I keep going ? If I try this, will it do the same thing?
