While exercise, diet, and fitness trends come and go; cleanses are here to stay. We do everything possible to feel our best, look our best, and succeed in the world. Celebrities have made cleanses famous. This could be due to their growling work schedules and constant stress to look and feel their best. Many toxins invade our bodies in the form of preservatives, chemicals, smog, caffeine, and alcohol. We would like to think that our body’s were strong enough to withstand the torture of various lifestyles, environment, and food choices, but in reality we are all huge sponges with delicate systems that need tune ups! Elle Magazine let us in on their 5 top rated cleanses. This is an article you shouldn’t skip!!!
costly, yet often the best route, inpatient detox centers
This customized cleanse is simple in nature and provides the consumer with 6 numbered juices to consume throughout the day. Clients can opt to drink only juice (“juicie, juice”) or have juice all day and a sensible dinner (“Jucie till dinner”).
“It’s not about deprivation,” says co-founder Erica Huss. “You’re getting really sound calories.” Sarah Jessica Parker, Olivia Wilde, and Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr seem to agree: They’ve been known to sip Blueprint juices like pineapple apple mint the week before awards shows.
This is Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite cleanse because it’s so “delicious.” Following in her foot steps are Alicia Silverstone, Naomi Watts, and her husband, Liev Schreiber. In this cleanse you aren’t tied to the juice. Founder, Denise Mari, also adds in her cucumber soup and sunflower seed salads to keep you satisfied. The cute, glass bottles are also nature friendly and can be reused. Manhattan loves the Avenue so much that they opened a seasonal store for the summer in the Hampton’s!
This celebrity chef gone cleanse extraordinaire has served some of Hollywood’s finest! She was Donna Karan’s food guru as well as, Nicole Kidman, and Drew Barrymore.
“I believe I was the original home-delivery cleanse person in New York City,” she says. Pettijohn’s signature Green Juice—which includes cucumber, kale, celery, apples, broccoli, and lemons—aims to rest the digestive system and boost immunity. Best of all, Pettijohn says her cleanse tends to lift emotional baggage. “I think that our food is related to our mood swings,” she says. It works for Karan, who has called juicing with Pettijohn one of her favorite things to do.
DAVID KIRSCH 48-HOUR SUPER-CHARGED CLEANSE
No solid foods on this one! Costly, yet often the best route, inpatient detox centers aren’t as convenient. This Super Charged cleanse promises results fast! Friend of David and fan of this super slim down is Anne Hathaway. This new pink lemonade flavor is enhanced with milk thistle (for the liver), and cranberry (for the kidneys). Kirsch also created a flush and a cleanse plan.
“You will lose a good several pounds,” Kirsch says. “Post–baby, a lot of women do my cleanse to jump-start their way back to their pre-pregnancy bodies.” Let Heidi Klum serve as inspiration: Kirsch whipped her back into Victoria’s Secret Angel shape after her second daughter’s birth. Liv Tyler and Ellen Barkin are also Kirsch converts.
The Clean Program
This cleanse is the REAL DEAL. It’s a 21 days program created by cardiologist Alejandro Junger, MD. His in depth regiment is also outlined in his book “Clean.”
The plan calls for brown rice–protein powder shakes for breakfast and dinner and sandwiching a healthful meal of “clean” protein (think stir-fried chicken and veggies) at lunch. The food-and-shake hybrid has found fans in cleanse aficionado Paltrow as well as Mariska Hargitay and Debra Messing.
