7 DAY REJUVENATING VEGAN MEAL PLAN TO DETOX & LOSE WEIGHT
Feeling down about your weight? Maybe bloating, cellulite and skin breakouts?
I hear ya, mama!
Detox can be the word that springs to mind.
So if you’re looking to:
get clearer skin
reset taste buds
Then you’ve come to the right place.
When I hear women saying they’re doing a detox, I suddenly think of a very low-calorie diet consisting of nothing but juice and water.
It’s not that I don’t think fresh pressed juices aren’t healthy, but it’s important that when ‘detoxing’ we do it correctly and safely.
Do we need to detox?
There are some conflicting debates about detoxing. Your body is naturally detoxing all the time so many people believe it’s not necessary to do a detox.
However, I support the camp that helping our bodies detox can be super beneficial.
We were never designed to eat the types of foods we’ve probably all ate at some point in our lives.
Even though I eat a very healthy, high nutrient, plant-based diet now, I’ve still had processed foods over the years and I definitely didn’t always have a diet as good as it is today.
And it’s not just what we put into our bodies that have an impact.
We’re constantly being bombarded with toxins.
chemicals in the water we drink
Although our bodies have the ability to handle all of these things, it’s not necessarily good for us, agree?
How do vegans detox?
There are plenty of types of vegan detoxes out there.
water only fasts
And they can all serve a good purpose, depending on what your body needs at the time.
However, the type of detox and meal plan I’ve got for you focuses on natural cleansing with an abundance of whole plant-based foods.
The 7-day detox diet plan is full of recipes that help support the body (and mind – no restriction here!) and is so healthy you could actually eat like this for life.
Plus you’ll be eating actual food, something that usually doesn’t happen on a detox.
How do vegans lose weight fast?
People make the mistake thinking that by going vegan they are eating healthier. There’s a big difference between a vegan and plant-based diet.
To lose weight quickly (and healthfully) vegans need to eat an abundance of whole plant-based foods that are high in nutrients and those help balance hormones.
Will I lose weight if I go vegan?
If you’re transitioning from a SAD/meat eating diet then yes, you will lose weight quickly and feel better immediately.
But there are many different ways to eat vegan and not all of them are healthy.
If your struggling to lose weight on a vegan diet then a whole food, a high nutrient detox diet can be just the thing you need to kick start your weight loss.

How can I cleanse my body in 7 days?
The meal plan is set out to give you everything you need to eat for the next 7 days to detox and flood the body with nutrients.
On top of that, some other things to try to encourage further detoxification are:
Body brushing – help increase blood flow, boost lymphatic drainage and decrease appearance cellulite.
Massage – treat yourself for a massage, preferably a deep tissue massage that will encourage waste to be eliminated.
Drink a boat load of water. Seriously, the more you drink, the more toxins you flush out and the better the detox will be.
Infuse water – add lemon, fresh fruit or mint add even more nutrients and antioxidants.
Rest and sleep – give your body the chance to heal deeply, restore and renew. Get a colonic – I know, it sounds drastic but thinks of it as a deep clean in your digestive tract. Colonics have so many benefits which you can read about here (LINK)
Move every day. This detox isn’t intense. It should make you feel great and have more energy.
But if you’re experiencing detox symptoms (see more below) then take it easy and keep it gentle Be A daily walk, swim or yoga practice can all be beneficial.
Meditate – meditation is incredibly beneficial in healing the body, and helping if your feeling tired or stressed. The aim of the detox is to remain as relaxed as possible to let your beautiful body do the work it needs.
What are the benefits of going vegan
Going vegan or plant-based can literally save your life! You can read a full list of amazing benefits you can expect when going vegan here.
Detox symptoms and side effects
If you’ve never detoxed before, you might experience the following side effects.
Depending on how ‘clean’ your diet has been before you may experience stronger detox side affects more than others. This is typical if you’ve come from a SAD.
However, in this 7-day meal plan, I’ve included LOTS of high nutrient dense foods. This is designed to crowd out all the nasty toxins that will leave your body (the reason we get detox side effects) So symptoms should be a minimum if not at all.
Here’s what benefits you can expect from the 7-day vegan cleanse and detox meal plan
Weight loss ( not water or muscle loss) actual fat loss
Decreased joint pain

What’s included in the daily meals?
For 6 days out of the week, you’ll be starting your day with green smoothies or smoothie bowls.
You can learn all about the benefits of drinking green smoothies and get even more recipes here.
The reason for starting the day with a smoothie is so your body uses less energy digesting and more energy detoxing. It’s also a great way to add veggies to every meal to ensure you’re getting lots of antioxidants in your gorgeous bod.
Expect colorful buddha bowls and filling salads.
By adding a HUGE salad for lunch every day you can expect to feel more energized while increasing the speed of weight loss.
Consists of generous soups, stews, and heart bowls.
Again, this helps to minimize energy spent digesting. This leaves you feeling satisfied and bloat free. You’ll be in those skinny jeans in no time mama!
Although snacking should be kept to a minimum during a detox phase (it helps the body to burn fat and cleanse better) It certainly won’t be a problem to add in some healthy, delicious snacks.
Its more important to listen to your body, eat when you feel hungry and if you want a dessert then go ahead!
Try to stick to one snack per day to eat the most out of the detox.
