The Clean Program is a 21-day detox diet program that is gaining popularity for those who want to lose weight, especially those who need to get a jump-start on their weight loss program. Unlike many other cleansing programs, this one is designed for those who are always in the move. It does not require you to stay at home like other strict diet programs may indirectly require of you, so you can continue to live your life and still get clean!
The Clean Program – An Overview
The Clean Program is very simple to follow. The first thing you need to do to get started is to order your Clean Kit, which contains the following:
- Brown rice protein shakes that contain all the essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-nutrients needed to support healthy cell metabolism and detoxification
- A fiber-enriched powder
- A high concentration of probiotics, or good bacteria that can help reinoculate your digestive tract with healthy, viable flora
- A healthy combination of natural antimicrobials that will help the body get rid of yeast and pathogenic bacteria
- Herbal supplement that will regulate insulin spikes, thereby reducing the craving for food as well as facilitate fat burning
The Diet Plan
Once you receive your kit, you can start your diet. Your diet for the next 21 days will consist only of two shakes, one solid meal and the supplements that come with your kit. It is recommended that you take the full meal for lunch. Having the meal in the evening will make the diet less effective, as a 12-hour fast after a liquid dinner will free up the most energy for detoxification. The solid meal should not have any processed foods, sugar or dairy products. All the ingredients of the Clean Program are made from natural sources and are free of added chemicals.
How and Why It Works
The Clean Program basically reduces your intake of solid food, which lets your body burn fats and turn them into energy to allow you to continue to do your usual activities. The Clean Kit compensates for the reduction of food intake by filling you up with supplements to ensure that you still get all the vitamins and nutrients you need to stay healthy.
Renowned detoxification expert and cardiologist Dr. Alejandro Junger, the person behind the Clean Program, emphasizes the importance of detox-enhancing habits such as regular hot and cold baths, massage, skin brushing and sauna. These body conditioning and pampering activities improve overall blood circulation and promote perspiration, which in turn help to fuel your body’s natural cleansing system. The program eventually restores your body’s natural ability to heal itself by easing your body into detox and restoring its balance.
Once you are cleansed of all the toxins in your body and your fats continue to be burned, you start losing weight without losing energy or feeling weak. In fact, most people who do this program not only lose weight, but also feel happier, lighter and more in control of their bodies. There are a number of people who have reported that they have lost up to 39 pounds on this program inside of two months.
